We stayed in cabins. Perfectly reasonable although a little aged. Everything worked. Smelled of smoke due past patrons having larger fires than the fireplace could handle. Nice helpful manager re local tourist spots. Pretty grounds with kangaroos, a short drive from Halls Gap itself.

Had 3 great days in the "Gap" staying here, very peaceful, with a fantastic atmosphere with great interaction with the team. I commend this to anyone looking for a place to recharge the batteries. Having the local wildlife wandering past the door just a great bonus.

I have been lucky enough to spend four nights at Mountain View, three in a lodge and one in a motel room. The views are spectacular and if you want to get up close and personal with wildlife this is the place to be with kangaroos bounding through the property and friendly emus popping in for a visit.

Stayed 2 nights in a one-bedroom lodge. The proprieters were very friendly and helpful, giving me great information about local restaurants and sights. The property is lovely, with kangaroos and emus wandering about. I particularly liked how secluded and peaceful it felt - barely a 5-minute drive to Halls Gap, but it felt away from the crowds. The lodge itself...

We stopped off for one night and the owners are very welcoming. We were given details of local sites to see. We were also trying to sort our car hire out as we found out our car wasn't insured for Tasmania. Michelle immediately said that as we were her guests then this was her problem too!

You can see kangaroos from the garden. The owners are very nice and passionate about the area, there are Emus on the property as well and we were given a great itinerary by our hosts to explore the Grampians. We were on the road for a week and stayed in different places but this was the best place we stayed...

GOOD friendly staff, quiet location just 5 mins from town so quiet. greeted by two friendly emus that put a smile on my face. Great price as you spend all day out exploring. Most comfortable bed I've every slept in at a motel. BAD Pillow was too soft so very uncomfortable. TV could have been bigger.
