“Fabulous rustic location”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

D'Altons was such a great place to stay. My Father was visiting from England and he was enthralled by the wildlife, birds etc. We had a 2 bedroom cabin and the accommodation is quite basic but totally adequate for our needs. There are great hikes nearby, restaurants etc- I would definitely stay at D'Altons again; a friend of mine who was there at the same time has already re-booked.

The cabin in the adults only area was spacious and peaceful - we enjoyed sitting on the verandah, drinking tea, reading and watching the 'roos!

The furniture looked like it was new and the bed was comfortable.

A friend of the owners was looking after the place whilst they were away and she was very welcoming and helpful - we bumped into her in her shop in town and she asked if everything was ok for us and if we needed anything which was very kind of her.

One tip to future guests is that, if you are walking at night, take a torch with you as the driveway/path to the cabins is very dark - we were glad we had one with us on the way back from the local restaurants!

I would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in Halls Gap and, if you don't have children with you, definitely go for a cabin in the child free area.

We really enjoyed our stay at D'Altons, en-route from Melbourne to Adelaide. The cabins are simple, but adequate for one or two nights. The wildlife appear outside your door - kangaroos morning and evening. It is very near scenic drives and mountain tracks.

We really enjoyed our overnight stay. The chalet was clean and spacious and had basic kitchen equipment. The veranda had table and chairs, we sat watching the sunset over the mountain and kangaroos grazing on the lawn. The shops and amenities are within walking distance. A great place to relax.

We hadn't pre booked and therefore the surprise to find this little gem after a long drive from Portland on the coast cannot be underestimated. David made us very welcome and even allowed us to check out the spa cabin before we finally agreed to stay. We had cockatoos on our terrace and we had a hop by by the local wallabies all in the space of 20 mins after arriving.
Having a spa tube after a long drive was just great and aided a perfect nights sleep. The cabin was equipped to support the one night stay. Having wi-fi access only around the reception areas is both a blessing and a hindrance. However we did manage quite well being cut off from the world whilst enjoying this great Little oasis in the GAP.

This is a good location in Halls Gap which in turn is the place to be in the Grampians. This is the main feature that moves this place from average to very good. Well worn chalets probably proof of its popularity.Car parking adjacent to chalet is good point. We liked the birds, insects and kangaroos and Dave our host , all of which make there presence felt. Provide your own food and drink for breakfast etc not a problem as long as you are aware. Everything available at Local store [at a price]Our two nights stay probably not long enough.Lots of dead kangaroos on roadsides suggest its better to walk through the woods than on the road sides.

Took us a little while to locate as it well hidden in Halls Gap. It is a lovely spot, ideal to explore the surrounding countryside. We were made welcome by David the owner.
The studio was nice and spacious, The Spa whirlpool was very inviting especially as the weather was not so good around the turn of the year. We had our meals outside where we could watch all kinds of animals like kangoroos, deer, emus, cockatoos, Australian Magpies etc. It's like a private zoo but one should not forget that these are wild animals. No moskitos fortunately.
We wanted to do our own cooking. Unfortunately one of two rings of the cooker did not work. We found two pots to cook in, one for 1 litre and the other for 7 litres. The dishwasher did not work. We did not starve, however as we made do with what we found.
Most important was our feeling to be close to nature and animals.
