When we arrived there was an issue with our booking because the owners had taken over less than 24 hours ago and the computer said no but they honoured our booking and were extremely friendly and helpful. The accommodation was clean, comfortable but basic. The aircon worked well for heating the place but we didn't brave the shower, which would... More

We stayed at Mountain View in the Mount William suite and it was the most perfect weekend away! The business itself changed owners during our stay and you wouldn't have known they were new to the venue! Such lovely bubbly people with exceptionally clean, comfortable and well serviced rooms! :) Our breakfast basket had more than enough food to keep... More

Nice secluded motel with excellent value for money. Large rooms with all necessary amenities and two comfortable beds. Very friendly and approachable staff and the scenery is beautiful especially early in the morning. Great place to spent a night before walking up The Pinnacle the next morning and continuing down to the south coast. Wifi was free but only available... More

Thanks for your comments, it is a great place to be after a hard walking to the Pinnacle and you need that extra bit of room to sit back and relax in. Hope the rest of your trip was great and we might see you again next time. More

From the moment we arrived, friendly and relaxing. The staff were very helpful and their knowledge of the area allowed us to make better decisions on where to go. The area is just lovely and the quirky gardens are a delight. Just a short drive to town centre which keeps it lovely and quiet. The open fire was very romantic... More

Beautiful views. Friendly staff. Clean room. Facilities quite adequate. Room price cheap. But you can't put a price on the peaceful surroundings here. Resident bush chook (emu) very friendly. Couple of minutes drive to Halls Gap town centre. Highly recommend this lovely establishment.

Friendly staff, nice place for family outing. 40min drive to Ararat to get all your BBQ food. Full kitchen with Own BBQ grill. Toilet comes with washing machine. Able to see kangaroo at 7pm at the backyard of the holiday park. Resident Emu will greet you in the morning at your doorstep

Thanks for your comments and it was great you got to meet the 'locals' being Bill & Ben (the emu's) and our regular kangaroos. It is only 5 minute drive to the local supermarket in Halls Gap or 15 minutes to woolworths in Stawell but Ararat (38km's) is the bigger shopping centre, but then again you should have tried Rhonda's...

We stayed in a spa lodge and loved it. They are cosy and inviting with very welcome air-conditioning in the extreme heat we had. There is also an open fire for cooler nights. Loved the fact it was slightly out of town as it was pretty busy when we were there. Tubby is friendly and helpful and certainly gave us... More

We had a room for 3 which was very nice, clean and spacious. The location is perfect within the Grampians, and just a tiny little bit out of Halls Gap to make it feel isolated.
