This was a cute little motel with very friendly staff and nice clean rooms. We loved the views and were amazed at how many Kangaroos came out once the sun started setting . There were was a mom with her joey in her pouch and dad who was protecting them along with many others. Great spot for pictures, very cool! We all loved this little place. .

Room Tip: If you love nature this is a great spot

Hello Trudy,

Thank you for staying with us . It is a special place with an abundance of wildlife for all to enjoy.
We are becoming busier at the Motel as more people are becoming aware of the property and all that it has to offer. Hope to see you again in the future.
Kind regards
Jennie

For the price, a nice clean place to stay and considerably less expensive than the Comfort Inn where we had originally called to inquire about a room. We arrived early, so nice that we were able to check in at noon. The room was functional, which is all we really needed. They had chairs and picnic benches set up toward the back of the property for kangaroo watching. We had been disappointed along our journey having stopped several places that were recommended but never saw a kangaroo. So, we weren’t counting on much despite the photos we had seen of kangaroos on the streets of Halls Gap. At about 4 pm (which was far earlier than dusk) out they came. There were about 40 in the field a long distance away, but then five of them came within 12 feet of the tables and chairs so great for taking photos. One was a mom with the joey in her pouch which was very cool. They were gone by about 5 pm, so glad we timed it out right.

Very friendly staff and we had a quiet night stay in Unit 4. Facilities are in good condition. They had lots of DVDs at the reception area. Amazed to see the magnificent view of the mountains and blue sky in the early morning.

Did a stopover from Adelaide to Melbourne and thought we will visit the grampians on the way home. Beautiful drive though to halls gap and arrived at the motel in the evening where we saw kangaroos roaming on the lawn next to a small lake/pond.. Was very pleased with our room with the queen bed and one single bed, just right me and my hubby, plus 4 yr old child. The heating was adequate and so was the wifi. The bathroom was very clean and new, with adequate hot water. The managers of the motel put a lot of work in maintaining the cleanliness and comfort of their rooms, and it shows. We also ordered dinner from the motel and for the price we paid (compared to other bistros), was satisfying and filling. Will definitely recommend this motel to anyone who wants to visit the grampians.

Room Tip: We had room 5. Close enough to get adequate wifi signal and away from the entrance..

Stayed one night. Double bed room. In the main street close to shops. Fairly modern and reasonably equipped. Clean and bright with lots of lights. Views of the Grampians from outside the room. Free wi-fi although one had to move about the room to find a ‘hot spot’ for reception. Limited mini-bar (not used by us). Comfortable bed. Lots of kangaroos on the lawn in the morning. Good value and we would stay there again.

Stayed 2 nights in May 13. Nice spacious environment. We requested for a room further away from the entrance. Room itself is big, bright and basic. Common to find Kangaroos within the compound. Free wi-fi was not working. We had to inform the owner to rectify the situation. As our room is further away from the reception, the wi-fi signal was weak. We had to sit near the window to ensure connectivity. Despite this minor issue, the place is great and value for money, and the owner was kind enough to avail a microwave oven to us upon request. Amenities is about 500m walk away. There is also a restaurant right next door, and another Indian restaurant less than 100m away

Room Tip: Get rooms further away from the reception if you want privacy and nearer to the open spaces. However...
