Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Exactly what I was looking for when I came to the Grampians! A traditional and original building in a small sea of modern structures! The bonuses were that it was in the centre of the small town, had a good bar with great bears and wines and had a reasonable restaurant. Is it a bit tired? Yes it is but it is currently being refurbished and the bed was very comfortable plus the room had a microwave, kettle and fridge. Was it a little bit dirty in the corners? Yes it was but again nothing dramatic excepting for the very picky! The bathroom was clean and the shower was great albeit with no mixer tap and even had a jacuzzi! It was wonderful to stay in a place with so much character and to be woken up by the local wildlife with bird song that was simply delightful! All in all you get what you pay for and the rates were cheap for the area and frankly speaking you get a lot for your money! Thanks for a memorable stay!

Do your research and read the reviews carefully before booking. Positives - clean sheets, wifi, location Shane was pleasant to deal with and did what he could to help us Negatives - very rundown, desperately needing maintenance Clutter everywhere Mouldy, peeling ceilings Very dirty and dusty And we were overcharged- yet to have an outcome on our query about this.

Agent had booked us 2 nights at this ‘boutique hotel’, after much searching we eventually found the entrance through an unkempt and ramshackle garden. Reception was at first floor level; it was dirty and chaotic with rubbish everywhere. Bits of building work seem to be going on with tools, piles of cut wood and sawdust strewn all over. We had to wait some time for the manager to be found and when he eventually arrived he seemed to think the state of place was perfectly OK. We could not bring ourselves to stay and checked out before we checked in and found a very nice motel opposite. As other reviewers this place is best avoided until they can get there act together.

Stayed 1 night at the Mountain Grand hotel. We had difficulty in finding the hotel as its hidden behind a tavern and the signage was very poor. Host was friendly and helpful, seems the have only just taken ownership and are busy upgrading/renovating the hotel. Room was clean with basic amenities. Access was from car park at back or through the upstairs bar/reception. No restaurant so had to go over the road to the Kookaburra, which was excellent. Need a lot of TLC to get back it’s charm.

Booked online for a one night stay. Came to book in and reception was closing at 4pm? Alarm bells were ringing at the state of the premises and reception. Got our room key and were horrified by the conditions. Room was shabby and dirty, fingerprints on surfaces, dirty, mouldy bathroom. Unpleasant smell in the room and barely any space to walk around the bed. No one to complain to as reception was closed. My strong advice is DO NOT BOOK THIS ACCOMMODATION! It needs a total refurbishment and a thorough clean as well as some trained hospitality staff.

Our meals were fantastic. Staff were excellent , and for the price was exceptional value. Clean and not overbooked which meant they looked after those dining there. Dessert was fabulous and I loved the no frills feel about the place.

What a crap place. Wouldn’t recommend it to house a dog. This is the worst place I have ever stayed at. Do not book there. Can’t even get a feed until 20.00. I would rather stay in a car. We had booked for a week and left after the first night. DO NOT EVEN Ring them. It is crap

Dropped in for a quick drink during a day trip to HG. Ordered a pot of mid strength beer and a can of Bundy. It cost $18 for the two drinks. You'd think we were in outback Australua in the middle of nowhere. I don't think it would have cost that much out there. I'll be dropping in to the bottleshop to quench my thurst in the future.

To be fair, I think this place has just been taken over by new owners that are still trying to get their bearings. The owner and staff were fantastic and very helpful. The restaurant food was great but made a few mistakes because they were under staffed. It is walking distance to the main part of town. The rooms are very basic. The bed was clean and the shower pressure was good, as for the rest of the room, the furniture was very dusty and the floors needed a good vacuum. The rooms mostly just have a bed and coffee making facilities. The entire building needs to be given a good clean and modernised, at the moment it is a good backpackers. I believe we were overcharged, because on a number of websites the cost was $105 a night but we were charged $130 which was definitely overpriced for the quality of the room.

Dropped in on short notice one night for a meal.. The food was brilliant and the chat with Matt was lots of fun. Our Japanese guests loved every minute. Well done and good luck with the future upgrade. Highly recommended for a meal. We sure will visit again. Note that this review is for the restaurant and not for the accommodation as we had accommodation booked elsewhere.
