We stayed here on our way home from Tassie for one night. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location is quiet, but is a little out of the town so you'll need to drive out for dinner. We didn't use the pool but it looked OK. The owner was very friendly and helpful.

Thanks for the comments Paul. We are a bit out of town (just 4km's and 1 km to the pub) and that's why we love it out here. Peaceful and relaxing. More

It was great meeting you guys and making sure we gave you enough information for things to do without getting more 'pinstripes' on the new 4wd.

We stayed 2 nights recently for a relaxing break as we love the Grampians. Our motel room was great, very clean and had all the necessary requirements for a short stay including a comfortable bed! The pool area was very nice and although this Motel is not right in Halls Gap, it is only a 5 minute drive, so we... More

Thanks Karen. I must agree that due to the warm weather and lack of rain, the spiders have been the worst in the 5 years that we have been here and we are constantly trying to keep them under control. It is great you had a relaxing break and loved the place as most of our guests do. See you... More

My stay was a real highlight of my trip to Australia! The owners have taken a lot of care to make sure that their property is memorable. A bit kitschy perhaps, but hey, I love a place with character.

We stayed in a spa lodge for few nights, lounge was spacious with a nice leather couch. Lots of wild life around, especially we liked friendly emues! Ower was lovely, when our car was bogged in mud in the middle of nowhere, Tubby came to rescue us, Thanks! Will definitely be back if we visit Grampions again.

It is not often you get bogged in the middle of summer but you did it very well. At least you got to see plenty of our sensational scenery and the parents enjoyed a true aussie experience. Hope to see you again some time. Thanks. More

We stopped off here in the Grampians for one night after finishing the Great Ocean Road on the return to Melbourne. The room was nice enough but there were quite a lot of bugs behind the bed and I was bitten twice in the night. The staff were very friendly and told us things to do. I would have stopped... More

We do our best to keep the bugs out but due to the current dry conditions, they are plentiful at this time of the year. That is why each room has its own can of bug spray to keep the pests at bay and you can get a good nights sleep (and hopefully you kept the screen door closed at... More

We stayed in the motel for one night with 3 adults. We still had plenty of space to move around. Heating in the room was welcome as nights were chilly and we had to keep the bathroom door open as there is no heating there.

Lodge was well kept, very clean. Beautiful native Australian animals made it even more unique of a stay. Good location as it was not right in the town but very close. Owners were very helpful with information about where to explore in the Grampians and all round lovely people. Would love to go back again.

It is great being just far enough away for Halls gap to enjoy the peace and quiet of the native bushland but still close enough to visit the stores, restaurants ect. It is great we made your holiday one to remember and hopefully see you again sometime. More
