My partner and I really loved this place. We were shown to our room by Peggy, one of the owners, through the neat and rose bush-lined carpark. The room was fairly basic - usual for a regional motel - but very comfortable and clean, and certainly not small. The brick and pine walls made the room seem dark to some... More

We were very happy with our stay at the Kookaburra Motor Lodge. We were welcomed warmly and shown to our room, with a great view of the sun setting on the mountains behind the lodge. Walking distance to restaurants, cafes and shops, the location was perfect. Also well located for the cultural centre and some of the hikes in the... More

Great little motel in a fabulous position. Off the main road, but only a 2 minute walk to the shops. It was great to be able to see the kangaroos in the field out the back, and to hand feed the cockatoos that came and sat on the fence posts just out our back door. Spotlessly clean room, generous in... More

Great country motel. Basic room has bricked and tongue-groove knotty pine walls. It was spotlessly clean -- so clean that the shower glass almost disappeared! Writing desk, small eating table with two chairs, small flat screen TV and a very comfortable, firm bed. Bonus was two reading chairs, not the usual one. Kitchen equipment is sufficient for a quick breakfast:... More

Situated just a short walk from the clutch of cafes and restaurants in Halls Gap, Kookaburra Motor Lodge has large, spacious rooms with nice views onto a field with kangaroos. The room is fairly basic but clean and adequate.

I found it really nice. No frills and it could do with a bit of a spruce up but large, clean rooms, comfortable beds and a decent shower was all I wanted. Brand new owners who took over the week I stayed were very friendly and helpful. The scenery is stunning and just a short drive from all the viewpoints... More

The Kookaburra Motor Lodge Motel is perfect -- central location (2 min walk to restaurants on main street), you can watch the kangaroos in the fields from the patio, clean rooms, and the service is great. Breakfast was delivered to our room each morning and was just the right amount. Owners are willing to share their knowledge of the area,... More

The Kookaburra Motor Lodge certainly delivered on the wildlife. Loads of kangaroos, kookaburras, beautiful birds etc. The hosts John and Lynne were very friendly and helpful and the location is perfect. The room was basic and the decor a little tired. There was a fridge, kettle and toaster, two cups and saucers but only a plastic plate and one knife.... More

This hotel is a little gem. It's location off the main highway and overlooking a meadow and the Grampians creates a peaceful haven of country bliss. Yet, it is close enough to walk to shops and restaurants. We stayed a week while bushwalking, cycling and touring the district, including the goldfields. The host, John is friendly and very helpful with... More
