An honest motel, well run, all the amenities you would expect, clean and quiet. About fifty metres from Halls Gap centre. Owners advised Where we should go to find what we were looking for (Waterfalls and Walks). Kangaroos in back paddock behind motel and Kangaroos in front early morning. Wi-Fi as you would expect

Great rooms and outdoor BBQ facilities which came in very handy as all the restaurants were booked out. Rooms look out to mountains and over fields and a small lake which are home to many kangeroos, corellas and other wildlife. A magical place.

The hosts were super informative and friendly. We saw lots of Australian wildlife on the grounds. All within walking distance of restaurants and a grocery store. Very nice homey atmosphere. Well kept grounds.

Great location surrounded by fields where the kangaroos ran free. Many birds around seating in your terrace. Hall Gap is a unique place that reminds in some aspects Nara in Japan. Nearby the motel, walking distance, there is a very good restaurant called Kookaburra. One of two miles away there is an Indian restaurant, on main road, that should not... More

We first stayed at the Kookaburra Motor Lodge in 2014 and it was the only place we wanted to stay when we returned to Halls Gap this year. It is not the most luxurious hotel that we have stayed in at Halls Gap but it easily our favourite. Location is great and the hotel grounds are teeming with wildlife. Our... More

We stayed here a few years ago in summer and liked it so we decided to stay again. The facilities are good value and the location is great. However, the staff was rude this time through.

This was our first trip to Halls Gap and what a great place to stay. From the first moment we walked into the reception we were welcomed like family. The owners, a fantastic couple were able to help us with all our sight seeing, and direct us to the best ice cream and coffee in town. The rooms were clean... More

The rooms need a makeover. The carpet is grotty and the shower was a disgrace. I'm sure you can find somewhere better to stay in Halls Gap. The only saving grace was the view from the room of the kangaroos up close and feeding the cockatoos. It's in an excellent location but I'm happy to walk and have better.

We stayed a few nights and were completely comfortable and happy with the Kookaburra motel. Great value for money and a fantastic view. Very clean with everything we needed for a good stay. The owners were friendly and accommodating of our requests.
