We stayed two nights in a two bedroom cabin. The main bedroom had a queen sized bed. My daughter and niece shared the second bedroom with two single beds. Bedrooms were large - we could could actually have a suitcase on the floor and still have plenty of room to walk around the bed - something we could not do... More

My partner & I decided to go for a quick trip away to Halls Gap and the Motor Inn was an extremely affordable option for us both. The staff were amazing - friendly and helpful! The rooms were spacious and clean with the convenience of having a large fridge and other utensils for more of a self catering option. We... More

There is so much to see from Halls Gap, you need as much time as you can manage to get. Of course, the return trip is always fantastic!

I was told never to expect champagne when paying the price for sparkling water. But this place is amazing and well worth a visit. The prices are great and the location is just beautiful, set in a lovely bush area. The rooms are clean and very well equiped. The staff are excellent and have a great knowledge of the places...

Stayed at cabin 5, at the farthest end and as we are honeymooners, we like the seclusion from all other visitors. Its in front of the billabong, which my husband got excited about and to our delight, we caught yabbies!

Friendly owner, clean room and spacious lounge. The spa was a relief after a big walk up and down Mackenzie Falls. Nice to be able to cook breakfast. Nice view of the mountains.

Traveling in mid October is a low season time, plenty of availability. While traveling on the road, one does not have to commit in advance where to stay. Unlike motor inns in the US, we realized that in Australia they are quite well maintained, clean, convenient and spacious. You can park your car in front of your room. You get... More

It's hard to think what American motel rooms are like in the US! There are not many Australian motel rooms that supply what we supply in the way of kitchen utensils, plates, glasses etc. but we like to assist our guests to have convenience. Wifi is available but understandably with such huge mountains around us, not available in every place... More

Was greeted by friendly owner who'd just taken over. Was very helpful and the room was beautifully presented with clean linen. We even had a fireplace with a starter pack. There's even a pool and kids playground for warmer months and is located in the middle of nature. Beautiful will go back to again and recommend to family and friends.
