“Serenity”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The Lodges are a great getaway in Halls Gap. Compared to many other rentals in Halls Gap they are quiet and secluded while being in town. Sit on the back patio, with the kangaroos and Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and relax in quiet enjoyment. We stayed at the Blue Wren, but the Kookaburra looked equally nice.

The apartment has everything you can want, including spa bath and wood fire for the chillier nights. An outside BBQ and a well equipped kitchen. I especially liked the selection of cooking oils and sauces, and the complimentary breakfast basket was more than adequate. Maps of the area were provided so you can plan your days walk the night before. We enjoyed our stay very much.

“Perfect getaway.”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The Lodges is a lovely secluded accommodation. We stayed in the Blue Wren and it was extremely clean and well maintained. Very luxurious and everything that you need is there. Great location - close to restaurants and town but the bush is just outside the door. Loved it so much we might be back for a third stay.

“Best place in the world”
Reviewed 24 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This cottage is the best hide away for 2 people we have ever found. The location is great. The cottage has everything you could need & there are kangaroos in the garden daily.

“Simply The Best”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Ignore the superlatives in the other reviews, it's better than all of them. "Outstanding quality in all respects" just doesn't do this place justice. You have to see it to appreciate it. You have to stay there to truly love it. No detail is ignored, the kitchen cupboard even has all those spices and oils that are needed for good cooking but are hard to justify buying for a short stay. In fact, that's the only criticism we had; we wanted our stay to be much longer. The Kingfisher lodge was well worth the travel from the UK and will be an everlasting memory that we hope to repeat one day.

“Great place to stay in Halls Gap”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This property is especially designed to accommodate discerning adults who appreciate all the home comforts. The Kookaburra Lodge has a unique design which is in keeping with its location. It is a 2 story unit (bedroom/bathroom upstairs, but also has a downstairs toilet)and this may be an issue for people with walking disabilities. (Other lodge at this accommodation is one level though.) Great facilities and very well maintained and spotlessly clean. Excellent location re town centre and town facilities. We are repeat guests and love the place!

“Relaxation tranquility plus!”
Reviewed 1 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Absolutely lovely place to stay. Very comfortable, tidy, clean place lodge. Enjoyed a bbq outside in the little hut. Watched the kangaroos jump pass up, some stop for a look around and they are friendly. Peaceful and convenient to Halls Gap township
Enjoyed the birds and tranquility of the place.
Would recommend Blue Wren Lodge to anyone!!

“High Quality Accommodation”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We booked in here for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. The lodges are a short walk from the town's bars and restaurants etc. Just far enough to avoid any noise.

There is a well equipped kitchen, dining & sitting areas and all you need for outside dining. Mind you if you eat outside you may be joined by the several very friendly local kangaroos!

Our only criticism was the lack of WiFi so we had to check our email etc., in town.
