Gariwerd Motel is perfectly located exactly where you want to be: in the heart of Halls Gap in the heart of the Grampians, 5 mins drive from the Wonderland Carpark (the start of the walk to the Pinnacles). We have KANGAROOS! Lots of them. They just hang around the place, looking relaxed. You can take selfies with them. We also have very fast FREE WIFI in all areas of the motel! I know, everyone says they've got free WiFi, but that usually means free WiFi if you are standing on one leg in reception with a Pringles can on your head, not AWESOME FULL STRENGTH FREE WIFI EVERYWHERE YOU GO! Still not convinced to come stay with us? Well then there's not much else to say other than go read the reviews, which of course you've already done, because no one comes here and reads the official description first. You read the reviews, then the official description. Actually I'm pretty sure no one even reads the official description. I know I don't. If you are reading this, please contact us and tell us that you read it so we know writing this wasn't a complete waste of time. And you can book your stay with us while you are at it, because let's face it, you're pretty sure you want to stay with us now just because this little blurb has made you laugh a bit, and if that's any indication of what your stay will be like (it is), then you and I both know you should pick up the phone now. Go on, what are you waiting for?

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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We got great value for money and our hosts Vanessa and David were caring and kept in great communication. The Grampians are just the best place ever for hiking and fun. This motel is right at the foothill of the mountains. Very convenient and close to everything.

We really enjoyed our time at this little motel. My toddler thoroughly enjoyed seeing the kangaroos, kookaburras, and cockatoos that come and say hello. Walking distance to the town and super close to all the hot spots in halls gap. Highly recommend if you're looking for budget accommodation

Comfortable and clean with excellent service from people who clearly love what they do. Lots of good advice on how to spend our time. Great location and some beautiful wildlife coming to visit. Town centre is just a short pleasant walk away with lots of food options

I have never experienced such kindness from a small business in my life. Kelly and David were incredibly kind and flexible when I needed to change my booking date due to a personal circumstance. They never hesitated, genuinely cared, and reminded me that there are still very kind people in the world. It will now be my new home away from home when I need a tranquil country break. I truly can’t recommend the motel (VERY comfy beds and the best rainfall shower head you expect to see in a 5-star hotel.). My new favourite people and accommodation. See you again soon Kelly and David.

The best location for accommodation while you planning a holiday or a day trip to Grampians. Just few minutes from Halls Gap. We stay in beautiful very spacious room with gorgeous & fresh linen. My daughter & I we both also loved the soft blankets on each bed,amazing. We absolutely love the bathroom, so much room, bright and clean. Beautiful & down to earth and very helpful owners with huge knowledge about the region. Excellent accommodation at very good price. Absolutely recommending this place for anyone who is travelling that way with kids or no kids. Beautiful, down to earth and very helpful owners with huge knowledge about the region and sustainable living and Daria just loved the ducks at their beautiful garden We will definitely be back again Thank you so much for everything Xx

The property managers Kelly and David were very welcoming, friendly, and informative. The property is kept clean and is quite close to the town centre (approx 10 min walk). Easy to check in - received text message of allocated room number and that key could be found inside the room. Easy checkout as well. Recommended.

What an absolute gem! The Gariwerd Motel is super close to town, walking tracks and lookouts, our hosts Dave and Kelly were warm and welcoming and happily shared their knowledge of things to go see and do while in town! The rooms are a great size, beds are comfy and the linen was fantastic! After a super relaxing stay even my doggo was reluctant to leave!

Kelly was absolutely lovely, welcoming and very accommodating. Every other "dog friendly" accommodation in Halls gap was refusing my old 15yr old dog who is barley even noticed anywhere as she is so well behaved, Kelly welcomed her with no hesitations and made her feel just as welcome as us. Clean and cute little rooms in an incredible location. So close to the shops and walks that we didn't need to drive. Saw a deer and many kangaroos just outside of our room. Thank you guys and would definitely stay again!

Good location - walking distance to Halls Gap central village where we had dinner each night. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Spacious room and great value for money. Even though we never met them the owners communicated well. The highlight of our stay was the amazing walks to beautiful waterfalls and lookouts. A stunning place with lots of kangaroos and emus
