“Great stay at The Lodges”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Overall the stay at the Lodges was brilliant. From the start we felt that everything was catered perfectly for our delight and we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the cabin. The area was great because you would wake up to kangaroos in your back yard and it was only a 2 min drive or 10 min walk to the town. There was also a great dishwasher, spa, fireplace and bbq that made our stay that much better. Was great that the owners called up to check up on us after we arrived, great added care to our stay. Highly recommended for anyone looking to get away and relax for a new days!

“Stay here!!!!!”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

From the moment we walked in the door, we knew we had selected the right property for our stay. From the open fire, spa bath, breakfast basket, fluffy bathrobes & tasteful décor, every conceivable want had been thought of and catered for. Set in a peaceful natural environment with kangaroos and local birds on the doorstep, you couldn't ask for a more relaxing place to stay. Walking distance to the main street and central to other attractions, you'd be hard pressed to find a better location.

We stayed in the Blue Wren lodge, suitable for couples, although there are 2-3 stairs for those with mobility issues. Perfect for those who want to stay in and keep warm or as a base to explore further afield.

Level of service from the owners was exceptional, from the confirmation phone call shortly after booking, to the basket of goodies, the detailed directions and follow up after our stay.

Highly recommended!!

We have been here before and will keep coming back. The Blue Wren is so relaxing and everything is catered for. Peter really pays attention to everything being supplied. Easy walk to town and restaurants. A must stay place for couples.

“5 star, amazing accommodation”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I cannot rate the Blue Wren highly enough. Definitely a highlight of our weekend away. The fireplace, the spa, the wildlife - a home away from home. Thank you so much for providing us with the perfect place to stay ☺

“Awesome couple's retreat with huge room and fireplace”
Reviewed 27 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Peter was very friendly and provided instructions to get to location and get key.

The house is very roomy, perfect for couple as there is only 1 bedroom. However it is a very big place with kitchen, BBQ and a lovely fireplace to play with.

“"Absolutely Fabulous"”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I was looking for accommodation in Halls Gap that my wife and I could celebrate her 70th Birthday on the way to a driving trip around Victoria. I came upon the Lodges on the internet and contacted Peter to book the "Blue Wren". Within an hour Peter was on the phone to me explaining how to get there and that if there was anything he could do to assist us upon our arrival, just call him straight away. We arrived to find an absolutely fabulous setting and the Blue Wren nestled near the base of the Grampians. Our two day stay was fantastic and every thing had been thought of such as a basket full of goodies including two bottles of wine, also a free voucher for a loaf of bread from the local bakery. The interior was in immaculate condition and so clean with the little things like condiments that you usually don't find in places we have stayed in. That evening we saw deer roaming around the property and the next morning Kangaroos along with Kookaburras waiting at the patio door. We booked into the restaurant across the road called Darcy's Stonegrill Licensed Restaurant to celebrate my wife's 70th Birthday. The food and service was outstanding. We did some sight seeing the next day and found some lovely scenic water falls. We left reluctantly after a two day stay wishing we could have stayed longer. That afternoon I received a call from Peter while we was staying in Mount Gambier letting me know that he had found a package that looked like a present to someone! I had inadvertently left one of the presents to my wife in a bedside drawer and completely forgot about it. Peter was fantastic he said "don't worry I will send it to your home address" of which he did. I can highly recommend the Lodges especially the "Blue Wren" for a couple. A fantastic wonderful 70th celebration that my wife really enjoyed. Peter is the consummate host and we will be staying there again.
