We were the only guests on a cold and dreary winter night. But we pre-ordered the BBQ package and it was nicely laid out in their lounge area, awaiting for our arrival. It was the highlight of our stay and we enjoyed it very much. Too bad it rained all evening as the facilities were great - playground, racket games,... More

It was a shame the weather wasn't a bit kinder to you but at least you were well fed and enjoyed a true 'aussie' BBQ. Hope the rest of your trip was just as great as exploring the Grampians was. Thanks More

The stay came with a barbecue thrown in and it was a generous spread. Located away from the main road, with the mountain range as a backdrop and the woods dotting the sides, you can half expect a kangaroo to come hopping up to your door step. The wifi is only available in the reception area but then you are... More

Nothing beats a good old fashioned BBQ to keep the hungers at bay. Standing there cooking the BBQ, taking in the sensational views is what our life is all about. Thanks. More

Very friendly and helpful, offered options for dining and visiting. Tubby is a great host and helped with de-icing the cars on a very chilly morning. Superlative value. Only downside was mobile phones lost charge really quickly searching for a signal, would however suggest this is not the motel's fault as service at the foot of the Grampians can be... More

Good to see the 'girls'had a great weekend and enjoyed your time here. It was a great frost during the night so it is is good to make sure you know where you are driving to and had clear windows. Mobile phone range is difficult around the Grampians although being only 4 km's from the tower in Halls gap makes... More

We stayed for one night in the motel whilst exploring the Grampians. The location is perfect, a couple of minutes outside the centre of town but it is peaceful and there are kangaroo's roaming around. The owners are so friendly and helpful, they provided us a map of the Grampians and suggestions of where to visit. You can pre-order breakfast... More

There is nothing like a good frost in the morning to let you know you are in a great part of the country and that the day is going to be clear. We trust that you enjoyed our part of the country on your holiday of Oz and got to experience the things which we think are the highlights of... More

We stayed at this motel for 2 nights in May 2015 and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room and surroundings were for the price. It is also very handy to Halls Gap township and the Halls Gap Zoo. It is situated at the base of the Grampians and there are many drives to take to visit exceptional lookouts... More

We are not the closest motel to the town but we are one of the quietest. We love waking to the sound of birds and not that of vehicles driving past all the time. We do pride ourselves on being clean and comfortable and are happy that we have met your expectations. More

Friendly and well priced. Decor getting a little tired. Wifi only available near the office- not hard or expensive to fix, but honestly sometimes good not to have it..... 2 Dead flies on the kitchen bench and less than sparkling utensils drawers helped us to decide to eat out. Luckily there are numerous good options nearby. Beds clean and comfortable... More

Our WIFI is free and that's how we like to keep it. It is there for people to check emails, facebook ect and not be on it all night downloading whatever hence the reason we have a WIFI area. As for the flies, due to the lodges having open fire places the flies do come down the chimneys and there... More

Really great place,. Can't recommend more. The value for money is outstanding,. We opted for the more expensive optioned room which included open fireplace and spa, and will do so again in the future - can't fault it. The couple that run this place are amazingly friendly and very helpful, look no further if you are staying in the area.... More

Recently spent four nights in the motel section of Mountain View and have to say we were surprisingly impressed. The rooms have been refurbished and spotlessly clean, although the shower is rather small. The continental breakfast supplied as part of our Travel Auction package was perfect, but even more impressive was the bbq pack. A choice of meat is offered,... More

Thanks for the comments guys. Again, Rhonda's BBQ packs ensures that you do not go hungry after a hard day of exploring and it is good to see the left overs being put to a good use. It's not hard to be happy when your back yard is the Grampian's and hopefully we can pass that on to our guests... More

We stayed here for two nights in a 2 bedroom lodge. Loved the open fire and views of the bush. Hosts were very lovely and made sure we enjoyed our stay. Good facilities with small kitchen and dining/lounge. Only thing would have been for better heating in the very large, very cold bathroom, so cold in the morning for us... More

It is good for you Queenslander's to experience some real weather instead of warmth all the time. It can get a bit chilly in the mornings and it makes you appreciate the hot shower. It was great you enjoyed your time with us and that you had a safe trip home. We might see you again when you come down... More

Well located away from the Halls Gap main street but close enough to all you need. Self contained and everything provided - even wood every day for the lovely open fire. We left a phone charger and when we rang, Tubby offered to mail it to us in SA - and it was here when we got home - many... More

It is great you enjoyed the open fire in your lodge after a hard day of exploring the Grampians. Numerous items do get left behind and we do try hard to reunite them with their owners so they don't have to worry about buying more. Thanks for the comments and we will see you again next time. More
