"Very good value for pleasant room"
This is an older motel that backs up to an open area where kangaroos graze. The room is quiet and well kept. There is a mini fridge, coffee making, friendly office staff, and good wifi. A BBQ area is available for guests, or a pleasant 5-10 minute walk puts you at local eateries. Great value. I'd definitely stay again. Ask for a back room to watch the […] kangaroos.

"Tidy room, helpful owner. Would recommend."
We enjoyed our stay at the Kookaburra. Great location to explore the Grampians and the room was clean and tidy. The owner, Steve , was incredibly helpful and kind. We saw several types of birds and kangaroos from our back porch. Would recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice stay. Too short for us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location & friendly staff"
The staff were very friendly and helpful with walks, hikes and restaurant recommendations, even directions out of town. The place is dated but very nice, comfortable beds and we loved watching the Kangaroos, cockatoos etc from our patio. Kookaburra comes for feeding daily at 9:30 too. We saw the most kangaroos at the red centre just grazing in the […] lawn Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location just behind shops. Wifi is a bonus, overall rooms&toilet aged but clean. Beds comfortable and reasonably priced so well worth a look.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wow ... great views, great location, unbeatable."
Great location hidden amongst the big gum trees, kookaburras and Kangaroos yet really close to the two great restaurants and the shops. The mountain view rooms are the best ... uninterrupted views and your own balcony. Hosts are really delightful with their touring tips and hospitality. They gave us lots of print outs and info. Thanks Steve and Peggy. […] We love the Grampians and we will be back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel reception is very friendly and helpful. The place is very quiet at night. We saw kangaroos in the driveway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Only had one night but perfect for our needs. Heater was on when we arrived. We were able to have a late checkout as we were competing in a run on the Sunday morning and then head back for a shower!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Value for money, located at heart of Grampians"
The location is good as its only a couple minutes drive to the Grampians and it is near some restaurants and eateries. Lovely backyard, close to nature with cows, parrots and kangaroos. Room is of decent size and clean and good stable complimentary wifi connection.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Get Away"
Mind restoring scenary. I regretted for not staying there longer. Every thing is just as good as it can be. The only problem is a lack of room service. So prepare your own tea breaks and supper if u get hungry easily.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good accommodation in the countryside"
We found the Motel very clean and comfortable. Heating works well, hot water showers were good. Beds were comfortable, sheets were clean. There's even a kettle and toaster and utensils. The only little issue we had was the compressor of the mini-fridge was too loud in the silence of the night. Sighting kangaroos hopping around the motel compounds was […] fun. The proprietors were very helpful. Highly recommended for a stay in the Grampians. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Very good room, with nice view of and visit from kangaroos, cows, birds. Only drawback: the wifi comes and goes, but mainly goes...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It is best choice to stay in Halls Gap"
The room is clean, staff/owner is very friendly. We could see the range of Grampians National Park from our room. Also lots of kangaroos was seen all over the town of Halls Gap.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
グランピアンズ国立公園の中心のHalls Gapにあり立地は最高です。建物設備は少し古いのですがオーナーご夫婦の対応はとても親切でした。価格がとてもリーズナブルでお勧めです。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"reizende Lage mit tollenm Ausblick auf Landschaft"
Sehr netter Aufenthalt, die Lage mitten in der Natur ist unglaublich. Als wir ankamen, hüpfte ein Kangaruh dirket an uns vorbei. Meine Frau fütterte von der Zimmerterrasse Papageien. Sehr netter Empfang durch BesitzerGenuine Expedia guest review
"Warm reception, average amenities, clarify which are the rooms with the mountain view to avoid disappointment"
12/14/14 Abu A
This motel is not the cheapest in the area, but it is not very expensive either. Reception was warm and helpful. However, do clarify first which are the rooms with the mountain view; some of them face a boring road unlike those depicted in the photos. It is claimed that the air-conditioning and heating are moderated by the hotel staff but I think this is just an excuse for refusing to switch on the air-conditioner, although I am not complaining because I am all for an eco-friendly stay at the Grampians. Wifi works fine and amenities are average. If you come to the Grampians for the kangaroos, other motels may offer a closer view with the marsupials. The kangaroos that roam near this motel are behind a fence.

I booked the self-contained apartment. It's a small house w 2 bedrooms (2 queens, 1 single), full kitchen, big spacious living area, washing machine & BBQ if u bother. It's a perfect place for a family. Cons: - 1 toilet & 1 separate bathroom - no wifi in this unit since it is not a the main motel/lobby/office. We had to drive ~200m to the main building to use our devices. Yes! We do have impt stuff to do!!! Such as emails, whatsapp friends, Facebook, play games & update Tripadvisors! But seriously, I love the apartment.
"A very memorable stay"
11/30/14 catho2 Reading, United Kingdom
We have just spent a wonderful weekend here. The most amazing feature in the view from the small patio at the back of the units overlooking a large paddock, in which there are lots of kangaroos, some cattle and occasional deer. The bird life is special too. The flowering gum next to our terrace was filled with many parrots and other birds. The view down the valley is magnificent with the majestic mountains on both sides. The motel is very close to the shops and the owners could not be more helpful. They suggested all the best places to visit and at what times. The rooms were clean and comfortable with lovely landscaping of colourful roses bushes in the central parking area. Would highly recommend this motel.
"Forever in my heart!"
The kookaburra motor lodge will forever hold a place in my heart! Ok the rooms and furnishings are not the best but when you come to a place like Halls Gap you won't be spending too much time in the motel room. The motel was clean, had everything we needed during our stay and located in one of the most beautiful places on Earth! The best part is waking up to the sounds of the birds and other wildlife in the morning and drawing your curtains to find the Kangaroos literally at the patio fence! I will be returning here as soon as I can with my fiancé.
"Quiet but in the centre of town"
11/15/14 SarahCB3535 Melbourne, Australia
We have stayed here a few times now and came here again to bring my mother and aunt for a weekend in the Grampians. We love the views from the back rooms and the friendly owners. It is so handy to be able to walk to all the restaurants and cafes, but be in a back street feeling 'away from it all'. Convenient and clean!

We picked this motel at random on arrival in Hall`s Gap. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and plenty of parking was available right outside the room. The unit had a small "courtyard" outside where you could sit and gaze across the mountains and be entertained by the birdlife right at your feet. Would definitely stay again.

My wife & I absolutely loved this motel, and the owners , what great people! This a motel to be laid back in, if you want a top of the wozza luxury resort don tcome here but if you want an idyllic,country motel with great personal service where you can completely relax this is for you. Sitting on the back littleporch with the meadow right there was soothing. Various birds, ducks, cattle and of course the ocassional kookaburra all came to visit against a back drop of mountains with the shadows gradually creeping up. Rooms not the largest but well maintained, clean, tidy good water pressure The atmosphere here is spot on, apart from the ocassional Asians trying to smuggle children in, which I saw myself and was assured is a frequent occurrence. We will most definitely g oout of our way to stay here again ,and when we do it wil be for the better part of a week to chill out and talk to the animals.

We expected a lot less, and although it was "quaint", it was great - clean, complete and had many extras. Nice was the laundry facilities, the microwave and the fridge. Especially nice were the surroundings. Our room was in the back, backing up to a large field with kanagroos, cows and a variety of birds. We checked out some of the other hotels in the area, and although some of the others looked a little more "upscale", there were in fact no better - I would definitely stay in Kookaburra instead of the others.
"Our hosts to the rescue!"
09/23/14 Ariel T
Everyone talks about the friendly hosts, the great views, the cosy and clean place. That's all true. But our hosts went the extra mile (more than 50 in fact) to search for us when we were bogged down in Wartook state park. And it was a Sunday! Thanks to Stephen, his friend and Peggy for making the trip a pleasantly exciting and memorable when it could have easily been otherwise.
Stayed for 2 nights in August 2014. Clean and comfortable room with great views. Friendly and thoughtful hosts (heating switched on in room prior to arrival). Comfortable and good value for money. Would certainly recommend.
