"Great location and comfortable."
A very basic and comfortable room. My room faced the field out back, and was great to watch the Kangaroos at dusk. Wifi worked well, and self-serve laundry was great. Potential to be noisy, but not when I was there. A good value

"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.

"Good for an overnight stay only"
Friendly hotel staff, the room was pretty outdated, barely any television reception, very firm bed, heater and view was good. All of this despite high ratings from previous people. Definitely a place to stay if your only there overnight, wouldn't recommend staying there for more than one night though.

"Short stay in The Grampians"
Very pleasant, quiet motel, convenient for walking in The Grampians. Family run - helpful with suggestions for walks and drives. Bonus for us was seeing so many kangaroos in the adjacent field overlooked from the small patio. Also beautiful view of surrounding mountains. Recommended.

"Wildlife in abundance"
Arrived later than we expected to, but it was no hassle to the owners who welcomed us with a great smile. They took the time to inform us of all the eating establishments close by and of the best time and vantage points to see the local wildlife. We were pointed in the direction of our room and once there, opened the sliding doors to our private porch which revealed a 'mob' (Approx. !00) of Kangaroos grazing close by. Bird life of many varieties was also abundant. The room was very comfortable and though we were passing through the area briefly, would cater to our needs for a prolonged stay. There were no noise issues from other guests and sleep was easy to come.

"Nice hotel in beautiful setting"
Stayed here for a wedding so wanted something cheap and cheerful. The Kookaburra was the best price in comparison to some of the very tired and dated hotels around Halls Gap. Peggy the owner was lovely and we had a pleasant stay. Room was clean, gardens beautiful, it's walking distance to the shops and the awesome Kookaburra restaurant, it was exactly what we needed. If I was looking for luxury, there are other options in Halls Gap but this place suited our needs this time. We also got to see some kangaroos!

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

"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!

"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.

"what a find!"
08/11/15 Aeon_Flux2 London
Now, it is not the trendiest or the most modern model you can find. In fact it is a bit dated. But it is simply fantastic and it was the best find during my Australian journey. What I liked: - it is situated in a quiet yet central part (2 min away from shops and restaurants) - the staff is lovely, helpful and welcoming - we made some changes with our booking which caused no problems at all - excellent service! -free wi-fi (slow at times) - you are in the middle of the park, facing it every morning - all animals and nature saying good morning to you - the owners preheated he room for us (so important during the winter!) - it is a motel but has only 15 rooms making it rather cosy and small - excellent vallue What a charming place. Highly recommended.

07/07/15 ChunBoon87 Singapore, Singapore
The inn is located within walk distance to some restaurants and cafes. The owner is very nice is giving us advice on where to visit and also personally brought us to our rooms to make sure we are comfortable and even on the heater for us (since it's winter) and taught us how to use the heater blanket. Really appreciated his personal touch. The rooms are quite rustic with red brick walls and behind our room's balcony is a large field where wild kangaroos will roam around in the mornings and I presume in the evenings as well since I reached too late at night to see them. Would definitely be staying here again if I have the chance to visit the Grampians again!

It's my 2nd visit to this lodge, the first being in 2012. Love this little lodge situated in a quiet and peaceful location. You can see kangaroos roaming the grounds if it isn't raining. Rooms are clean and spacious. good for families as they have adjoining rooms. The owner is friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to see or do around the Grampians area.

"Great country pub"
06/29/15 Nigel_and_Lynda Melbourne, Australia
Hubby and I have just spent a weekend in Halls Gap and enjoyed a great meal at the Kookaburra Hotel. Even when we went in on Saturday afternoon to make a booking for dinner, the place had a wonderful ambiance with log fires at each end of the room. We were not disappointed when we came back for our meal. Great service from the staff, timely delivery of the meals; a great achievement when fully booked ! With a hearty appetite, we ordered the Garlic Cob (highly recommended !), and ordered it as an entree between us. Quite often in other establishments, this type of thing almost always turns up at the same time as the meals, but to their credit, timed perfectly with a nice gap before we had our main course which was also delicious, perfectly cooked and most important........ hot ! If the pub was closer to home, it would definitely be one of our favorites.

06/08/15 MuhdAshraf Singapore, Singapore
Spent 2 nights here at Kookaburra. The owner greeted us warmly when we arrived and took the time to highlight the different trails on the map, parking areas, shops etc. Even had the heater turned on for us before our arrival! Less than 5 minutes walk away from the town center but just far enough that you won't be disturbed by sounds of traffic. Rooms were clean and very spacious and each has a microwave oven which was pretty useful for us. Motel has a barbecue grill which was great for us to sear some steaks after our hikes. Overall a great experience if you're on a budget and will definitely return if ever in the area again :)

Stayed here two nights in the standard room . The hotel is old / out dated decor but very well kept and super clean. The owner was very nice , he had turned the heater on for us before we arrived, was nice to walk into a warmed room ! The free wifi worked surprising well considering where you are . Good wildlife around the area , with the wallabies grazing around , and even saw some what we believed to be deer roaming the street at the front ! This hotel has everything you need for long or short stays , 2 minute walk to the halls gap town centre . Would happily recommend to family / friends and would stay again ! Great price and enjoyed our stay :)

It may not be your regular 5-star hotel but I like it here because it is clean and peaceful. Besides, it has a big field just behind the rooms where you can find families of kangaroos in the morning. The owner is very kind and patient. My group arrived late for check-in and he gave very specific instructions to pick up the keys. He was also very nice in helping us to explain to the Hertz rental what has happened to our car as we got a puncture in one of the tyres. This is a good place to come back to at the end of the expedition in Grampians. Worth every penny we paid.
