Certificate of Excellence
Magdala Motor Lodge, located two and a half hours from Melbourne's central business district and five hours from Adelaide, is an excellent stopover between the cities and an ideal destination from which to explore the Grampians National Park, and the world renowned vineyards and wineries of the Grampians and Pyrenees. Set on 20 acres, Magdala Motor Lodge is the quietest motel in Stawell. Set on 20 acres, the Magdala Motor Lodge offers excellent food, accommodation and services for the corporate person, holiday makers and tour groups. The management and staff will be delighted to give you all the information you need to take advantage of the attractions of the area. Located on the outskirts of Stawell, the Magdala Motor Lodge consists of 28 units and a restaurant all overlooking a man made lake and rural land. The motel is variously described as 'The one with the moat', or 'The one with the ducks'. Our wild black ducks are so accustomed to people that they nest in the car park, gardens and tap on the windows in the morning to encourage guests to feed them.

My friends and I stayed in this place for an overnight during the summer holiday. Most of the rooms were booked and I ended up booking the room for three instead of four. Had it not been the case, we could have booked the family suite instead and save some money. We checked in

"Lake side room my best bet"
"Avoid rooms close to the front, as traffic noise was noticeable."
"Rooms towards middle , further away from highway."
"Probably the further back from the road the better, but quiet area."
"I'm quite sure all rooms will have a view of the lake so you cant go wrong!"
US$89 - US$104 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
