A decent place to stay in peaceful surrounds. Accommodation is a bit pricey for what you get. The room was a reasonable size but did not smell clean initially so we had to leave the door open to air It out. Bathroom was fairly clean except the toilet which had minor stains. 1 hour drive to the scenic look outs...

Pictures online of this hotel suggest something amazing. We almost missed it from the road, as outside appearance didn't live up to expectations. Online suggests this is absolutely luxurious - it isn't. The restaurant (separate review) is amazing and that is probably only reason to stay here. Functional rather than friendly welcome. The rooms (our was meant to be deluxe)...

Loved the Royal Mail. Our room was beautiful. After a long day on a motorbike touring The Grampians, it was just what was needed. Unfortunately for us, we arrived on a Monday and the restaurant was closed for dinner. However, the food from the bar was amazing anyway. Try the Chicken Parma and the cheese platter. Yum!

We visited for a two night stay and although definately a luxury establishment felt that cost lifted the prestige rather than the location. Our room was spacious and we could view the magnificent hills but we have experienced similar if not better for less in other locations. We allowed ourselves the experience of the Degustation and yes it was amazing!!...

We stayed in the blue stone cottages and loved every minute of it. Located 3 k's out of town but have a fantastic view of Mt Sturgeon. No TV, just a really well renovated old cottage including the bathroom in a water tank. Restaurant was fantastic and the counter meal we had in the pub section on our second night...

My partner and I recently spent 2 nights here. We couldn't fault the restaurant, our 5 course degustation was divine as was the wine and the service. However at $345 per night for a Deluxe Room you would expect that after being out all day and arriving back at your room it would be made up for you. Unfortunately this...

Stayed for one night on the way to the Grampians. The room and bathroom were spacious and nicely decorated with a view of the nearby mountains. The gourmet restaurant is worth a visit for good service and tasty food. The first wine I chose from their extensive list was not available, but the recommended alternative was excellent with the delicious...
