Just spent a great weekend in Halls Gap. The Mountain Grand is one of a kind, a most relaxing and pleasant place in which to spend a few days, the food is good (gluten free menus available), but don't expect a 24 hour hotel-like service. Friendly and helpful staff and the complete opposite of the chain hotel experience. Recommended. Andy... More

We recently spent two nights at the Mountain Grand and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This was our third stay at the Hotel and we were impressed by the improvements that had been made to the building since our last stay. For those requiring flash boutique hotel-type accommodation, this is not your spot. However, should you require an old Guest house... More

Booked at 1 hour's notice, we found this an ideal spot for a short stop in the Grampians. Room very comfortable, food well cooked, and location splendid - quiet, with plenty of birdlife and kangaroos around. Staff were extremely helpful, particularly when we discovered that we had left a coat behind when we checked out. In short, highly recommended!

The email when we booked was friendly and welcoming. The overall impression when we drove up was that the place desparately needs some improvement. The balcony was littered with leaves and cobwebs and the place needs a coat of paint. When we arrived at the front door all the doors were all locked and we had to wait for some... More

We have just returned from three days at Mountain Grand, and can only believe the negative mis-spellers have a hidden agenda!! It is a Guest House, not a Motel..perhaps they are conditioned to robotic 'chains'. Our room was spotless, comfortable, and warm. We were never made to feel we had to eat breakfast or dinner at any special time. Breakfast... More

The hotel itself is fine rooms are of a motel standatd with usual dust covered mini bar and standard bed, bathroom and towels. Yet you can still hear your nieghbors snore over the rattly whine of delapidated fan heaters that everyone blasts to compensate for the drafty windows. However the staff rarely know what is going on, I feel sorry... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This is one of country Victoria’s last remaining traditional Guesthouses, now refurbished into a very comfortable small hotel in the heart of Halls Gap. With its balconies and unique facade, the Mountain Grand is a delightful place to call home after a big day exploring the Grampians. "The Balconies" Restaurant & "Cafe Grand" are so popular, especially on Saturday nights with mellow 30s to 80s live music - "the best music of all time" performed by a selected rotating parade of professional musicians. There are seven small & cozy guest bedrooms with fresh decor and en-suite bathrooms - 3 large rooms, some with spas. No pretentious 5 star luxury, just homely 3.5 star country comfort with wood fire sitting rooms, big screen TVs and club/cocktail bar. The whole property has WiFi. Full breakfasts and 3 course dinners are included in the tariff. Dinners are 3 courses of full choice of menu. Guests with special dietary needs are looked after by our caring chef. Breakfasts comprise an extensive buffet followed by individually cooked offerings. All are enjoyed in our restaurant "The Balconies" and the "Cafe Grand." The Indulgence Getaway also includes gourmet picnic lunches which are extremely popular for bushwalkers who are going to be in the mountains all day. On their return they are treated to our Chef's freshly baked afternoon teas. Guests will be well looked after by our friendly staff & will find enjoyment (to add to the dining experience) relaxing in the various lounge areas with service from the licensed club bar. ... more   less
