“Perfect for stopover”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

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...

Visiting the Grampians was a last minute decision, and we're glad we decided to visit. We did not have much time for some hiking, but will definitely make time for it if we're back.

The motel itself is very well located, within walking distance to shops and restaurants. The view from the motel is very nice and wildlife was plentiful. The managers were polite, friendly and accommodating, so we had no problems from booking via emails to check-in. The room we stayed in has a queen bed and a single bed, just nice for the 3 of us. Beds are comfortable, and the bathroom was decent sized. We requested for a microwave, and the manager quite promptly brought us one.

Halls Gap motel is good value for its location and the great view. We would love to be back next time.

Making a trip to the Grampians was a decision to get out of Melbourne on the F1 weekend. Luckily for us we had booked the room in advance as it was fully occupied. The weekends apparently are the busiest in Halls Gap with lots of students, weekenders and familes coming to explore the National Park. The room we were allocated was a liitle tight but the bathroom was spacious with a shower cubicle. The room has a queen bed and a single bed, a small dining table and a sofa. A mini fridge, toaster and some cutlery/crockery is provided. However upon request we were given a microwave and additional cutlery/crockery. Daily room makeup is upon request and we did not feel the need for it during our short stay. The Motel is only a short walk from the small town centre which has cafes, restaurants, gift shops, newsagent as well as the Visitors Center. In the evening as the sun begins to set, the animals and birds come to graze close to the Motel grounds and the owners have placed chairs in the garden giving visitors an opportunity to observe the birds and animals. It was absolutely wonderful for us. Located in the valley, Halls Gap is surrounded by the mountains and it is beautiful. Weather was perfect except for a little rain and chill during our stay on the second day but we were happy to drive along the trails recommended to view the waterfalls and the lookouts. This was our first visit and we just loved the place.

Willing to explore a bit of the Grampians, we stopped 2 nights in this motel. We had a great time there. The management was very friendly and helpful (as we got delayed by the fires in the area, they waited for us so we could do our check in and have a place to stay).
The room was big enough and clean.
What was great for us (non aussies) was to have roos all over the place, have a great view on the mountains and we could also see wild deers. It was very cool

our last review of this motel was negative. since then, new management and new lease of life for what is a basic motel has turned the place around.
the view is as always spectacular.
new managers are good. some food if simple is available. wifi is free.
much more welcoming and frankly we are glad, well done!

Room Tip: further from the road puts you closer to the animals..
