I took my cousins from overseas to the Grampians and we stayed there one night. We were impressed by the hosts' (Peggy and Stephen) friendliness and genuine willingness to help with information and with any other needs. I love the Kookaburra Motor Lodge because is always clean (this wasn't our first stay there), offers big rooms and bathroom and has... More

We really liked this motel. We stayed in a lovey room to the rear overlooking the kangaroo field with a table and chairs for a quiet pre dinner drink. It is the only hotel we have ever stayed in that was this close to the wildlife.The owners could not have been more helpful and sent us to the Kookaburra Hotel... More

Considering the fairly over the top with praise feedback this motel has received on Tripadvisor, we were actually a little bit disappointed when we stayed there. There were a number of good points. The room was clean and reasonably well equipped, albeit rather poorly lit. That said, I'm glad we didn't need the aircon much as it seemed a really... More

This small motel is a favourite with repeat visitors to Halls Gap and has an excellent reputation. The accomodation is simple but comfortable and the cost moderate. We stayed during the height of summer and found the air-conditioning worked efficiently even when the temperature was 38 degrees celsius. The current very pleasant owners, Peggy and Stephen, are gradually upgrading the... More

We decided to stay in Halls Gap on a whim, driving back from Adelaide to Melbourne. I'm glad we did as I had forgotten just how lovely it is there, surrounded by mountains. Reminded me fondly of our recent New Zealand trip. We picked the Kookaburra due to its location in town. It's down a side street and far enough... More

Kookaburra Motor Inn is a fantastic place to base yourself while staying in Halls Gap in The Grampians. The staff are more than friendly and happy to help, the rooms are clean and tidy, and if you're lucky enough to have a room at the back of the motel, your little patio faces out into a paddock where you can...

This was the 5th nights stay of our motorbike trip, and it was everything that I was hoping to expose my girlfriend to on her first trip to Australia. Our room had a view overlooking the paddock towards the gap, where I'm guessing the town get's its name. Mountain's, Outback, Waterfalls, Scenery and Kangaroo's - this is a bit of... More

This motel is not the cheapest in the area, but it is not very expensive either. Reception was warm and helpful. However, do clarify first which are the rooms with the mountain view; some of them face a boring road unlike those depicted in the photos. It is claimed that the air-conditioning and heating are moderated by the hotel staff... More

I booked the self-contained apartment. It's a small house w 2 bedrooms (2 queens, 1 single), full kitchen, big spacious living area, washing machine & BBQ if u bother. It's a perfect place for a family. Cons: - 1 toilet & 1 separate bathroom - no wifi in this unit since it is not a the main motel/lobby/office. We had... More

We have just spent a wonderful weekend here. The most amazing feature in the view from the small patio at the back of the units overlooking a large paddock, in which there are lots of kangaroos, some cattle and occasional deer. The bird life is special too. The flowering gum next to our terrace was filled with many parrots and... More
