The Grampians Motel & The Views Restaurant

Reviewed July 9, 2013

Our first trip to The Grampians was made even better by the wonderful hosts, human and the one who thinks he is, at The Grampians Motel. Chris, Jeff and Lemontree were friendly and welcoming. The room had spectacular views from front and back. Waking each morning with the birds on your doorstep and roos munching just metres away was amazing. We walked each morning, and there was always something new to see... emus, deer and more surprises each day.
The motel is set well back from the road so there is great views from everywhere and mininmal noise from what little traffic passes by. Our beds were comfortable and the shower had great pressure...truly needed after wandering through the mountains.
We dined twice in the restaurant and our meals were fantastic. The atmosphere was friendly and the staff, including Lemontree, were always helpful and entertaining.
If you're looking for a place to stay thats in a great location, with breathtaking views, fantastic hosts and wildlife on your front door we couldn't reccommend anywhere better!

James and Inge

Room Tip: Choose the deluxe which has front and back entrances for twice the views.

I would rather camp then stay here again.

First of all we showed up 20 minutes before check in and were sent away. An hour early I could understand but 20 minutes come on. The front desk snapped at us for wanting to check in early.

The bedding was probably older then the hotel with stains on the sheets and a seriously gross comforter that had gross hairs on it. I refused to sleep in the bedding. My pillow was also hard as a rock. You would think that if a place like this is charging over $100 for a room out in the middle of no where that they could and would update the bedding if not the rooms.

The bonfire was my favorite part, loved it. It was stocked once by the hotel staff and we kept it going until we were ready for bed.

The free breakfast was minimal but ok.

Thank you for your review and we are sorry that we didn't meet all your expectations.
Clearly you were unhappy about not being able to be checked into your rooms early but unfortunately this was not impossible due to a high turnover of rooms that morning.
Our pillows and comforter sets are less than 12 months old and are appreciated by the majority of our guests.
I'm pleased you enjoyed our wonderful bonfire with all the wood supplied for the enjoyment of all our guests.

Grampians motel is real value for money with its friendly staff and the natural beauty which surrounds the motel. Rooms are clean and beds were very comfortable after a long days journey. The pet kangaroo 'Lemon Tree' was a hit amongst my two nieces who were Vikings Australia for the first time. Staff is very friendly and was keen to cater to what we needed. Definitely recommend for a stay to experience Grampians.

Lemontree, the kangaroo, is popular with all our visitors especially when he comes to the Restaurant window looking for food.

Thanks again and hopefully we will seeyou again some time.

We had a beaut dinner in the restaurant twice. The hosts were friendly and so was the wildlife. The venue is a little out of town but not a problem. Very peaceful and quiet. We would stay here again on return to The Grampians.

Spent a lovely weekend at Geoff & Chris's motel with my work colleagues. Everything was just spot on! Sensational location, awesome food, warm and comfortable rooms and simply the best hosts you'll ever find. If it's a cool night, ask Geoff to fire up the bonfire! Thanks heaps guys, We'll be back.

When you first drive into the gates of The Grampians Motel, you realise it's a special place. It is set on a wonderful, spacious piece of land, and the views of the mountains are just beautiful.
The reception staff are friendly and helpful, and made us feel very welcome.
The electric blankets in the beds were a nice touch which ensured we had a great sleep on a cold winter night, and were ready to tackle the mountain walks the next day.
Great value for money.
On my last visit to The Grampians I stayed at Mountain View Motor Inn & Holiday Lodge, which is just as good, but the location isn't so convenient.

We recently had our mid-year function at The Grampians Motel and could not thank Jeff and Chris enough for their fantastic hospitality and service. The views are breathtaking, rooms are warm and cozy and we loved the resident kangaroo 'lemon tree'. Great meals and a fantastic bonfire to warm us well into the night.

I would happily recommend this motel to anyone and can say with absolute certainty we will be back!
