Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

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 stayed 1 night with a group of friends whilst returning to Adelaide. Our hosts Tom & Cheryl were warm and welcoming. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. Tom cooked us a great breakfast of bacon & eggs, toast, cereals, tea & coffee also provided. Served in a lovely al fresco area that we got to share with...

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! Kangaroos come to their...

Thank-you for your review. It can be very daunting visiting a new country and your plans don't work out as expected! We were only too glad to help if we could. Hope you have a wonderful time in Australia and enjoy beautiful Tasmania! See you next time!

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.

High praise for a motel bed! Thank-you. Wondered whether you tried any of the other pillows provided? We give four so you could take your choice. Glad you enjoyed our emus who put smiles on everyones' faces. Hope to see you again sometime soon!

the hosts are good, the costs are low but it is in need of a refurb. Clean rooms but a bit old school. Location is fine with good local wildlife visiting night and day just a little tired now ready for a reno

We stayed 2 nights in the cabin with the spa on the far side of the pond. It was in a perfect spot for a romantic weekend and in close distance to Halls Gap. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owners who were up for a chat and imformative on the local area. When we entered the cabin...

A very informative review and your right, it is a big job to update cabins but we are working on it, with enthusiasm! Still our cabins remain increasingly popular and especially the two by the lake where you were staying! The majority of people who stay here are not interested in wifi and want a break from technology. Why not...

Very relaxing & quiet away from the Halls Gap township area. Lodge was comfortable, great spa bath. Tv in the bedroom was a real bonus. Lack of phone service in Halls in general is a problem but Wi Fi near the office area was a big help.thanks. Friendly Kangeroos & Emus just outside roaming around was lovely.

We stayed in a cabin on this site with our 2 boys. Plenty to do at this venue. We set up a cricket match on the lawn and had one of the American guests join us for a funny match. Lots of equipment to play with, great for families. The pool was deliciously cool after a long, hot mountain walk....
