“Tranquility plus!”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

We recently spent 4 days at Boroka Downs for my husbands birthday - what a truly beautiful place! The accomodation is modern and super clean, the local wildlife abundent and the hosts happy to cater for your every need! We'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in Residence #1 which did not have a view of the Grampians, but enjoyed the lovely morning...

Myself and now Husband eloped to Boroka Downs and we could not have wished for anything more perfect, the scenery, the superb room with more than we could have ever needed for our 3 night stay and of course the Wildlife. Stephanie and Bob gave me the hassle free wedding that I wanted and nothing we asked for was too hard!!! We found a real little gem for our wedding and I have been spreading the word since returning home. It is the perfect romantic holiday get away and we will definetly return, maybe for our wedding anniversary!!!

We stayed at Boroka Downs for our honeymoon and it was the absolute perfect setting. Bob and Stephanie had thought of everything...the fire was ready to light and there were beautiful little touches upon our arrival. The design of the property is clever and makes you feel like you are the only ones there. The villas are the best accommodation I have ever seen. Full of character and design excellence. Fantastic spa with views, massive bathroom and a kitchen that has everything that you could possibly want. We really had need of nothing and it was the perfect place to escape to and relax. We loved cooking our own food in the kitchen and outside on the BBQ as we lazed on the sun lounges. It isn't far into town either to get supplies. It is more expensive than we would normally spend but definitely worth it. I don't think we will ever stay anywhere as nice. It is amazing!

Our family stayed at Boroka Downs for 4 nights over the Easter period. As there were 5 of us and only 2 bedrooms, the owners Bob and Stephanie provided the most comfortable inflatable bed which our grown up son slept in in the large lounge.
Each of the 5 villas are set in secluded and peaceful surroundings where from all sides you can see native kangaroos, emus and birds.
The properties are equipped better than most 5 star hotels in terms of equipment, facilities and luxuries. Ours had an outdoor hot tub which was large enough for the 5 of us to relax in at night with dark skies and superb views of the stars.
Bob and Stephanie looked after us extremely well and although this standard does not come cheap, we all thought it to be fantastic value especially as Australia is so incredibly expensive if as in our case your normal currency is UK Pounds.
Our daugher and son in law had already stayed at Boroka and we look forward to staying again when next out in Oz.
This region is amazing and yet it is only 3 hours easy travel from Melbourne.

Room Tip: Each villa is individual, ours was the only 2 bedroomed as most are occupied by couples only.

We loved our stay at Boroka Downs. We stayed 3 nights in house number 3 which was extremely well appointed - we cooked each day and the kitchen contained everything you would need - loved the herbal teas. The view from the house was amazing and we particularly loved sitting outside watching the sunset whilst enjoying a glass of wine. We spent hours watching the birds and the free roaming emus and kangaroos. One of the most relaxing and peaceful holidays we have experienced.

In reading the previous 5 reviews, I can only say that I agree wholeheartedly with all their points. We booked for 3 nights and stayed for 4 nights, it was difficult to leave such peacefulness. We stayed at villa no 4 which was perfect, loved the visits to our bird bath from the red crested rosellas, fairy wrens and emus. My husband went on a private birding walk with the Neil who does the free walks some afternoons at Boroka Downs. He was very impressed with his knowledge of all fauna & flora in the area. Halls Gap town is small but pretty, it has a few cafes, grocery store and gift shops which all seemed to be of a decent standard. The nearest big town is Ararat where we tried out a local cafe. Actually didn't want to be away from our accomodation much! Loved the follow up email on our return home. Congratulations on presenting everything perfectly.

Room Tip: sunset or sunrise - your choice

we had a great stay at the Boroka Downs. Very exclusive place with superb service.
Even there are five houses on the property you feel like you are the only people there.
The only negative thing was that we had house #1 which is the only one with a sunrise view and we preferred a sunset view.

Room Tip: house #1 is sunrise view house #2-5 have sunset and mountain view and therefore the better choice
