The Mountain View is everything you could want , great location , very quiet and clean , Tubby and Rhonda awesome people , highly recommend the bbq pack. We spent 2 nights here, only regret is we didn't order the bbq pack both nights , we will definitely be going back again in the near future.

Once again, Ronnie's BBQ pack just hits the spot after a hard day of walking in the Grampians. She does make sure you don't go hungry and together with a couple of quiet drinks, it is what life is about. Thanks and we hope to see you again in the near future. More

We stumbled across this motel as we were heading for the Grampians from Ararat and thought we'd make an enquiry. We luckily got their last room and we were so pleased we ended up booking for a second night. Tubby & Rhonda were really welcoming, the room was very generous in size and very clean and comfortable - they also... More

Jenny, it was great you enjoyed your time in the Grampians and hopefully had a good time also exploring the big desert after leaving us. The more information we can give you the better your experience will be. Hope to see you down your end of the world some time. Thanks. More

Read Tubby's responses to comments - he is a straight shooter. We stayed here for one night in the standard motor lodge rooms and had a fine time. Comfortable bed, clean room, hot shower, tea/coffee w/ milk for the wife. It is a traditional motor lodge and is more than an excellent value for what it is (we didn't stay... More

The one bedroom lodges are the best for that romantic getaway, being away from the main motel section and only having to worry about the kangaroos hopping past in the evening. The peace and tranquility of the area just makes the romance that little bit better. Thanks More

From the moment we were greeted by Rhonda (with fresh milk for our tea) we knew we had made the right choice. The attention to the little comforts in our lodge made all the difference - plenty of towels, a well equipped kitchen, TVs in both the lounge and bedroom, and a spa which was great after long hikes! We... More

If it is peace and quiet you are after, then the 1 bedroom lodges are the best. Out by their lonesome, (and now with their own BBQ shelter) it is the place to sit back and relax and take in the tranquility of the Grampians. It is great you had a wonderful time and that we provided all the information... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin for 3 nights in September 2014. Cabin was spacious, clean and comfortable with views of the surrounding mountains. Located in their own grounds the cabins are a little way outside of Halls Gap so you would certainly need your own transport. Only minor negative would be that the interior looked like it perhaps needed... More

Thanks for your comments. We love to have a bit of banter with our customers and make them at home as much as possible. Yes, we are out of Halls Gap by 4 km's but that is what makes us special.

The one bedroom lodge's are cozy and being well away from the main motel section, you do feel nice and secluded. We have now completed our BBQ area for the one bedroom lodges to make it that little bit better for our customers to enjoy their 'home away from home'. We have also just recently replaced curtains in the lodges... More

From the moment you walk in to reception to the moment you leave the service and advice is Excellent. Nothing was a problem. The Hampers are great value.

Thanks for the comments. If we give you great information it makes your life easier and you enjoy your holiday more.
