We had an excellent stay. The lodge and surrounds were beautiful. Very peaceful and relaxing. Owners were very friendly and helpful. The Lodge was clean and beautifully presented. Loved the spa and open fire and the space. Would stay there again :) Thanks for a relaxing weekend :)

Great place to stay. Felt very much at home in our beautiful cabin! The open fire inside the cabin was just perfect. Great friendly owners. Will definitely be returning to stay again. Thanks for a great couple of days

It's great that you enjoyed the lodge and the open fire and that we gave you all the information you required to keep yourself occupied over the couple of days. We look forward to meeting you again and giving you more great things to do around the Grampians. More

Excellent, knowledgable owners who are eager to help. We stayed in the Mount William Spa Suite, which was situated towards the end and was wonderfully quiet. Cleanliness was top-notch, and the electric blankets provided were fantastic. Loved the spa bath. Zero complaints :-)

The Mount William spa suite is our hidden gem. Although attached to the motel, it is at the very end and has its own courtyard to sit back, relax and take in the views. Although lots of people like the lodges the Mt William suite is that bit bigger than the lodges and has a great large lounge in front... More

The cabins were of a good size and the facilities were clean. Very quiet and cosy place, and it's only a couple of minute's drive away from Halls Gap. What really stood out about the place, to us, was the very excellent service provided by Tubby (manager?). He welcomed us very warmly even though we arrived later than expected. He... More

So happy we had an electric blanket! Lodge was very clean and tidy, had all we needed! Will visit again! Tubby was also very helpful! *side note - lodge steps need better grip for colder seasons as my partner had a slip up on the icy steps*

It's great that you enjoyed our lodges and were able to sit back and relax. Although cold outside, being indoors and enjoying the ambiance of the fire is a great way to spend a winters day. You did experience a -3c morning and the frost was spectacular. Due to the verandah having just being painted several days prior to you... More

Our last port of call before heading back to Sydney. We certainly picked the right place. Tubby was our congenial host in all ways (even when the spa pump developed an airlock!) Although staying in July we were able to enjoy our breakfast outdoors with the locals (kangaroos and the inquistive emu who greets all arrivals.) Great place for families,... More

Margaret, thank you for your feedback. It is great being able to dine with the 'locals' (emus & kangaroo's) as it really brings home how great the Grampians are and the experiences that our customers can have. We, as your first point of call, need to ensure you can make the most of the area in the short time you... More

We stayed in one of the cabins over the weekend of the recent June/July school holidays. It was a very cold and wet weekend and we were very happy to be greeted by such a spacious, clean and warm cabin. The cabin had a fireplace and gas heating which kept us all warm during the night. The rooms were spacious,... More

Samantha, it is great that even in Winter, the Grampians can still be a great place to visit. The zoo is fantastic and gives people a great day out and then you can come home to the 'Mountain View' and enjoy the cosy atmosphere of the lodge. That's what winter is all about. Thanks. More

We recently spent the weekend in Hall's Gap staying at the Mountain View Motel. The owners were friendly and welcoming after our rather long drive. The cabin was cosy with a nice view. The open fireplace was a nice touch to settle down in front of, after a day's exploring. I would highly recommend staying here!

There is nothing better than sitting in front of a cosy fire after a hard day of exploring the Grampians. It gives you a great deal of satisfaction that after a long day you can sit down with a glass of your preferred drink and enjoy the ambiance of the lodges and the 'Mountain View'. We are here to help... More

Thanks for your review Lucy. It is great being able to go on holiday and have everything in your lodge to make it a pleasant one. (although doing the washing is not high on the 'to do' list but sometimes has to be done). A lot of people don't experience the pleasure of an open fire so we are more... More
