It's my 2nd visit to this lodge, the first being in 2012. Love this little lodge situated in a quiet and peaceful location. You can see kangaroos roaming the grounds if it isn't raining. Rooms are clean and spacious. good for families as they have adjoining rooms. The owner is friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to see or... More

Hubby and I have just spent a weekend in Halls Gap and enjoyed a great meal at the Kookaburra Hotel. Even when we went in on Saturday afternoon to make a booking for dinner, the place had a wonderful ambiance with log fires at each end of the room. We were not disappointed when we came back for our meal.... More

Spent 2 nights here at Kookaburra. The owner greeted us warmly when we arrived and took the time to highlight the different trails on the map, parking areas, shops etc. Even had the heater turned on for us before our arrival! Less than 5 minutes walk away from the town center but just far enough that you won't be disturbed... More

A peaceful setting and the room was clean and well kept. The bed was comfortable which is important to me. Behind the rooms is a large field with lots of Kangaroos just grazing and not at all concerned with people. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

It may not be your regular 5-star hotel but I like it here because it is clean and peaceful. Besides, it has a big field just behind the rooms where you can find families of kangaroos in the morning. The owner is very kind and patient. My group arrived late for check-in and he gave very specific instructions to pick... More

This was a great motel for a couple of days relaxation. It was very close to the main shops and quite near some lovely walks. The room was spacious and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful.

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
