“We just keep coming back”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

The people that wrote the previous write up must be very hard to please or are just plain malicious.
We have stayed there many times over the years, including just recently, and have always found this property to be very well cared for, so clean and friendly.
Yes it is 70’s style but we know the owners have completely renovated the premises, have put in really lovely new bathrooms, and all nice beds. We have found them to have pride in their property, and have never found dirty dish cloths or anything else dirty.
We have stayed in many properties where the towels can get a bit thin, they are usually supplied by Linen services and some times can get a bit thread bare even at high cost places.
They should have opened their eyes when they said there was only a BBQ and micro wave to cook on, we have made use of the electric fry pan to heat our pies and pizzas and used the four burner cook top for our meals with heaps of pots and pans for our use, they thought of everything.
We feel for the owners with selfish comments like the previous one, maybe they should stay home if they like their own luxuries.

Unless you have thoughts of eating out every night!!! A group of us get together every year or so & this is the second time we have stayed here. Funny how I forgot they don't have an oven or griller. The weather was a bit dismal & standing under the little bbq shelter in the cold & rain cooking up our bbq was a bit of a downer to our weekend. I brought along some potatoes etc. to cook in the "oven" the only other form of cooking they had was a microwave.
The bedrooms were quite clean, but the beds were so old they sunk in the middle. The rooms smelt musty. We stayed 4 days/3 nights & we only had 2 tea towels & 1 little threadbare towel each, there was only a dribble of dish detergent & a dirty dishcloth. It would have been nice to have more of these requirements.
On the "upside" the units were within walking distance from Halls Gap township & all surrounding tourist attractions. Plenty of parking space as it is set back from the road.
It is a typical 60's style residence, brown carpets & smelling a bit unfresh.
A couple of suggestions: bring extra towels, facewashers & a teatowel, paper towel, your own pillows (the ones there are old & hard), bbq food.

The accommodation was almost perfect for us. The only negative was that there was no phone in the unit and the TV reception was very poor. However, as we were out in the sticks, I guess that there was no cable or satellite for television. It also seems that in Australia, everyone is supposed to have a cell phone! Otherwise the presence of wallabies and cockatoos around the property made it a highlight of our many visits to Australia. The unit was spacious, well equiped and spotlessly clean. The two units were up for sale however, so new owners could nulify all of the foregoing. Nevertheless, Halls Gap for those who seek the ultimate in nature, peace, and relaxation,can find no better place, especially during the non school vacation periods in Australia.
