Kookaburra Motor Lodge
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Halls Gap
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We spent just one night here, but given a choice would definitely return to stay here again. Wonderful knowledgable host, great location, beautiful surroundings, spotlessly clean and a comfortable quiet nights sleep. Would definitely recommend this to others travelling to Halls Gap.

As previous guests have said, this motel is comfortable (especially the beds!) and the rooms at the rear overlook the Grampians and cows grazing in the paddocks. Just ignore the 1970s decor, as the rooms are spotless and the owners are indeed a friendly, helpful couple! It is also peaceful as it is just a little further back from the small 'village' of cafés, ice-cream parlour and souvenir shops.
You can order a country-style breakfast in your room - with leaf tea in pots! - or walk to the nearby cafés. On the way, you will probably meet a kangaroo - or three!), maybe a wallaby and be serenaded by kookaburras! This is Australia! If you are taking young children to Halls Gap, you may want to check out Tripadvisor for advice on the adjacent Pinnacle apartments and motel, as it seems have very family oriented facilities.

Room Tip: The rooms at the rear of the motel have a relaxing view of the Grampians from your sliding door whi...

Really liked this room, which was comfortable and cozy during cold and rainy weather. The owners are both lovely and were able to give us some good advice on what to do. It was very practical to also be able to do our laundry. We were able to walk just a few minutes to where most of the restaurants and cafés are and were surrounded by kangaroos and birds like the kookaburra which makes the experience even better.

Compact and cosy rooms overlooking the mountains. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. Conveniently located close to town. The room was fairly basic but was appropriately priced. A DVD player was provided when we asked for one. DVDs are free to loan.

I suggest booking one of the rooms at the back, with a view of the paddocks and mountains. In the morning all the birds show up (galahs, kookaburra, magpies, wrens) and the magpie will eat from your hand, and come in the room if the door is left open.
The room itself was clean and quiet, heater worked well (middle of winter). A variety of pillows would have made it perfect. When we walked to dinner, we almost bumped into a kangaroo in the dark.
Friendly host, would go back.

Room Tip: Get one at the back overlooking the paddock and mountains.

Set well away from what little traffic actually goes through Halls Gap, this motel represents good value for money. The service provided was efficient and friendly without being at all obtrusive and the rooms are quite spacious. Luxurious they're not, but they are clean and well equipped and enjoy a nice outlook at the rear. No shortage of tame kangaroos around, but that's everywhere in Halls Gap, not just the Kookaburra.

Room Tip: All rooms are in a row to gain the view to the rear of the site, so there's no better ones that...
