amazing scenery and the little village had the best cafe which served the finest fish & chips!! the hotel had a little pool area with a couple of sunbeds. the restaurant was lovely and good value for money.

During our trip around Victoria, we tried to stay at B&Bs but couldn't find anything that took our fancy, so we booked this motel. We were pleasantly surprised.
It is a great location, very central and close to a good restaurant. If the weather is good, you can sit and have your breakfast outside and watch the kangaroos.
Room was comfortable and very spacious with all the facilities you would expect from a Best Western. Our rate didn't include breakfast so we compared the cost of it here to 'in town' . It compared favourably and was OK - once again what you would expect.
This motel fails the ‘Shower Test’ (see my other reviews). The washroom let down an otherwise perfectly comfortable motel room. No bath but a brick built shower section which resembled something out of a World War barrack block. An open area within the wash-room tiled but without door or curtain, it was unappealing to enter and it proved impossible to achieve a comfortable water temperature for a shower once I had plucked up the courage to use the facility. Some sort of problem with the design of the plumbing system meant that I had to decide between a freezing cold or scolding hot shower. In addition the wash-room was quite cold, the room heating did not seem to flow through. Perhaps this is all part of a plan to ensure water usage ( a scarce resource in these parts) is kept to a minimum.
Our room contained 1 x Queen bed plus a single, a small table and chairs plus the usual TV, fridge, kettle etc. The décor was of a faced brick which we have found to be popular in this part of Australia, although the other fittings were not as stylish as the Comfort Inn in Port Fairy. The bed (equipped with electric blanket if required) was reasonably comfortable.
Although intermittent I was able to access free wi-fi from the room.
I recently spent two nights in Halls Gap with my partner and stayed at the Colonial Motor Inn.
First impression was very good with lovely staff and nice presentation of hotel/motel. The rooms were really quite spacious though a bit dated - 70's style furnishings haha though that was not a problem as it was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in a deluxe spa room which has two person spa - nice and relaxing though spa was a little small still did the trick!
Location is great - just a few minutes walk into centre of town and close to restraunts etc.. The hotel itself has a restraunt that is open to public aswell and a breakfast bar for inhouse guests, continental breakfast included and hot dishes are at a reasonable price.
I'd say the highlight is the view, as it is located between two towering mountains it was great to wake up and see them with the sun rising over the top..
