“Kangaroos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

We pulled over to take a photo of a field of kangaroos, and ended up staying for three nights. The host and hostess are delightful, accomodating, and very fair. Their care for the place is evident and they want everyone to have a grand time. Children love it there with the trampoline, train engine,and often, a bonfire at night, it feels like a lodge without the price,
They have no fitness room but the hiking around there will do the job for you.
And you can come back to your new home ( yes it does feel that way) and have a delicious meal with fresh ingredients and a decent cup of joe. It doesn't.'t get any better than this at Hall's Gap.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms have view of the pinnacles, and the parrots and kangaroos wii be there as well.

When I arrived at this motel, I was a bit disappointed by it's location as it's located on the perimeters of the Grampians. There are in fact more choices nearer to the town area. However, all that changed after we spoke to very welcoming hosts. She was friendly and eager to share with us on the attractions of the area. that made us felt at home and know that we are in good hands. After a bit of exploring, we came back for dinner. And to my pleasant surprise, they have the juiciest and nicest steak around and oh my, the serving is so generous. Last but not least, the animals here sure get to roam around freely, with a kangaroo named 'lemon tree' coming to us up close and personal during meal times. Sure is a very different experience. This place is great for families with children too. Highly recommended.

The mob of kangaroos in the expansive front garden caught our attention and the warm humor, enthusiasm and knowledge of our hosts, Chris and Jeff, made us stay not one but three nights. The location is perfect - the front and back views are gorgeous, scenic views of the Grampians. There is ample wildlife - kangaroos, emus, birds of all sorts including a kookaburra. It's nice to be a bit away from town. Dinner next to a warm fire and a bonfire outside! Chris and Jeff do a great job.

We stayed for just 1 night here. Arriving and seeing the kangaroos grazing happily on the front paddock set the scene. The rooms, although a bit dated, were extremely cold. The front door let an amazing amount of cold air through it. We put our coats at the bottom to help. Having said this, the owners were a great font of knowledge and the restaurant on site was absolutely fantastic. We would certainly return again.

We loved our stay here. The rooms themselves are fine, nothing to write home about, but the garden (huge, with kangaroos), service (couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful), restaurant (we looked at lots of options in town and ended up back here for a great meal) and other facilities (e.g. washer and drier available) are fantastic. Nothing like a late afternoon beer sitting on the restaurant veranda watching the kangaroos.

We would recommend the bellfield studio apartment for those with older children. Nothing was too much from the lovely hosts Chris and Jeff. Dinner in the View restaurant was outstanding. Staff were great. We would highly recommend and we will be back.

The Grampians motel is just a short drive out of the Halls gap township. I recently stayed with some Japanese visitors for 1 night. They were thrilled with the bonfire (and so were the kids) which was a great meeting spot as other guests arrived by the fire to share their Grampians exploring stories. Of course having the grounds filled with a few Kangaroos just tops things off especially Lemontree who hangs out near the dining room window which was of huge amusement to our visitors and kids alike. With the Pinnacles behind it's a magic location. We had the breakfasts in the morning. The strawberry pancakes were huge and put a big smile on the kids face. For the adults the bacon and eggs were great and the price is extremely good at around $12 to $15 which also included cereal, toast, fruit salad, yogurt and coffee or tea. On the next trip to the Grampians I'll be staying again.
