D'Altons Resort
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Halls Gap
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This was one of the great finds of our Oz tour. We were given a great welcome and there was a lot of chat with the host. The cabins are roomy and extremely well equipped for long stays, although we were only overnighting. The setting amongst the trees was great and the thrill of having our breakfast on our deck with kangaroos for company was outstanding. Our only regret was not being able to stay on. If you are going to Halls Gap stay here.

We are staying here at the moment with a family of 6 and two other families. Last night we cooked a BBQ beside the pool then went on to set up a board game in the recreation room that gave the kids plenty of room to play and had a fridge and bar in it for the adults. The beds were comfortable, the bedding warm. The property is very neat and is providing the relaxed atmosphere we were after. I think this will become a regular get away.

D'Altons is the perfect place to experience the Grampians. Some facilities might not always be the most modern (our kitchen fires did not work very well for instance), but everything was well maintained and it gives you the feeling you're staying right in the nature (and isn't that why you go to the Grampians?). In the evening kangaroos come graze in front of your doorstep which is just an amazing view. Would certainly go back.

Quaint, very "olde" Australian style, a sense of the past with the ammenities of the present. We had a wonderful and restful weekend. Great hosts checking on our well being while presenting a unique vista of Australiana for their guests. Awake to kookaburras, cockatoos, and kangaroos in this spacious setting.We noticed a great family gathering in the purpose built shack where eucalyptus smoke from the open fire gently wafted through the air. Enjoy ! We did !

It was the first time in three years our whole family were together and decided to spend it at D'Altons Resort. We couldn't have picked a better spot!

The rooms were very clean, the kitchen and bathrooms had all amenties provided and there was even an ample supply of firewood left by the front door.

The children in our group were entertained by the kangaroos and plenty of space to run around as well as a playground to play in. If it were warmer, would have been able to laze by the pool - instead we took advantage of the bbq in this area.

The hosts were wonderful - couldn't be more helpful and friendly.

My tip: take an early morning run off the paved track along the trails you'll be running side by side with kangaroos and emus. Fantastic!

If you seek a place where you can have the feel of actually living at the foot of the Grampians, we highly recommend Dalton's Resort. Each resident has an individual cabin with a full kitchen, nice large kitchen, and a very big living space/bedroom. Ours came with a massive jacuzi spa instead of a bathtub. The greatest gift is the wildlife. Imagine being a non-Australian and waking up in the morning to a herd of kangaroo eating outside your front window with exotic birds fluttering about. It was like having a private viewing room inside of a zoo. The property is very well maintained and off the main road, so that you have an intense sense of privacy. You can imagine what it feels like to live there.

Told me it was my daughter's fault she fell through the end of the bed(On the top bunk) as they said "she was playing around". What did happen was she moved down the end of the bed to play with the iPad and due to to the slats not being screwed down, they must have moved them when they made the bed!!!

Didnt care that the hair dryer caught on fire in my hand. Since they limit the amount of hot water, after 2 showers we had no hot water till the next day.

They complained we used too much wood in the fire places as it was about 2 degrees in the nights.

Toaster kept blowing the fuse of the unit which leads me to think of faulty wiring.

Stay clear of this place, owner doesn't care about you, just his money and you might get electrocuted or your child might get seriously injured due to poor maintenance.
