My family of 3 stayed one night at Gariwerd. Given a 4 bedder. Initially, the property and room look dated and there was no space to open up all luggages. However, turns out that essential items exceed our expectations - Bed was comfortable, air con works fine, water heater very effective, fast wifi. Breakfast provided. The owners are both very...

I stayed here for two nights with my family. Upon arriving we said that we had a third person and could we have an extra bed and the owner was more than happy to swap us to a "superior" room which had three beds. He also gave excellent advice on eating in the area as well as detailed maps and...

A very well kept and tidy motel, in the heart of Hall's Gap. The managers were very pleasant and accommodating, and only too willing to assist. The "camp kitchen" is a great idea, and is well equipped for making meals to eat in the rooms. Could we suggest that providing an Australian brand of tea, eg Nerada, rather than Bushells...

The beds are so comfy. The room was lovely and clean. Really strong signal for free WiFi. Our room was recently painted, shower had plenty of hot water and good water pressure.

Hey Beryl, thanks for your wonderful 5 star super awesome review! Yes kangaroos have no road sense and it's best to know this when travelling around these parts after 5pm, so readers watch out and drop your speed!! There is so much wildlife here and it's amazing and it's best not to squish it with your car! Glad you loved...

Great location, central to everything. Very clean and comfortable rooms with a plentiful breakfast available. The best scrambled eggs ever! Homemade lemonade stall was the highlight though! We stayed two nights and could have stayed longer. Well done guys.

The best scrambled eggs ever!!! My goodness Tony will be gloating on that for days (weeks and even months)!!! Thank you so much for such positive 5 star review feedback, it's very appreciated! And yes my girls like to make lemonade from our "magical" lemon tree. Why magical? Well it keeps producing these amazing lemons that are juicy and sweet!...

This motel is great to stay while you are exploring the Grampians. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Late afternoon the kangaroos walk right through the backyard which is awesome to watch and you can see them up close. Rooms are simple but have everything you need. Would definitely recommend this place!

The room is comfortable and clean. The host Tony and Angeline are very friendly and helpful. They have advised us on how to plan our trip and highlighted the places worth visiting in Grampians. We will definitely come back to Gariwerd Motel when we visit Grampians again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gariwerd Motel is perfectly located exactly where you want to be: in the heart of Halls Gap in the heart of the Grampians, 5 mins drive from the Wonderland Carpark (the start of the walk to the Pinnacles). We have KANGAROOS! Lots of them. They just hang around the place, looking relaxed. You can take selfies with them. We also have very fast FREE WIFI in all areas of the motel! I know, everyone says they've got free WiFi, but that usually means free WiFi if you are standing on one leg in reception with a Pringles can on your head, not AWESOME FULL STRENGTH FREE WIFI EVERYWHERE YOU GO! Still not convinced to come stay with us? Well then there's not much else to say other than go read the reviews, which of course you've already done, because no one comes here and reads the official description first. You read the reviews, then the official description. Actually I'm pretty sure no one even reads the official description. I know I don't. If you are reading this, please contact us and tell us that you read it so we know writing this wasn't a complete waste of time. And you can book your stay with us while you are at it, because let's face it, you're pretty sure you want to stay with us now just because this little blurb has made you laugh a bit, and if that's any indication of what your stay will be like (it is), then you and I both know you should pick up the phone now. Go on, what are you waiting for? ... more   less
