Well this has top reviews- and if you want to be a short drive from the town it is great. However in the motel rooms it is quite bland/ordinary, and though I'd presumed we would actually have mountain views- we didn't at all.

Thanks for your review. We are not sure what your expectations of mountain views are but we certainly do have mountains around us and you can see them from our motel, from numerous points around the property, hence the name "Mountain View Motel." We really hope you were able to hike and see what your expectation of mountain views are... More

Comfortable place and cosy place with very friendly and pleasant hosts (Tom and Cheryl). Two semi tame emus will greet you in the morning walking around the compound. The BBQ area was nice but we missed the BBQ as it was raining. We had great food at Halls Gap Hotel though (recommended by the hosts as we had to cancel... More

We were in a warm and cosy cabin, with well equipped kitchen and an open fireplace as well as a gas heater. The beds were very comfortable and everything in the bathroom worked well ( there was a washing machine too). A great place with the new owners being very hospitable and informative. They are gradually updating all the accommodation... More

So glad you left our property totally relaxed. It would be quite a different environment from the north and therefore well worth the experience. Thanks very much for such a great review and if you're ever down south again, please visit again. We would love to see you. More

Lovely place to stay- we really enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone. Affordable, neat and clean accommodation, lovely and friendly owners who love a chat and make you feel at home. Every morning and afternoon two emus come and visited for feeding- they're so tame they come right up next to you. A very cool experience. We liked that... More

Came to halls gap for the one night on our way to Melbourne and was just looking for somewhere cheap and easy however we were pleasantly surprised! Comfy updated bed although the bathroom could also use updating. So close to the wildlife and overall very good, only negative is there is no phone signal except at the reception desk

Really lovely for a weekend getaway. Stayed here with 2 other couples and a child. Accommodated really well. Loved the open fireplaces and the cabins are a perfect size to accommodate a number of people. Would definitely come here again.
