Nice and quiet place to be. Lovely management. Sufficient privacy. Good feeling of being in the bush area. Animating animals around, and also noisy birds in dawn... we enjoyed it. Could recommend this stay to our friends .

We stayed in the Gariwerd Motel for one night on our stop at the Grampians National Park and arrived before 2 pm. Usually the check in starts after 2 pm, but we got luck that the owner was in his office and opened the door. It was a very nice welcome and we got some perfect tips for the walks...

Clean room, friendly staff, great location. Highly recommend to anyone that's heading to Halls Gap. I would definitely go back and stay here. The grounds are lovely and clean too, with everything you need.

Very friendly and helpful owners and in a convenient location. It was an easy drive up into the Grampians, and a pleasant walk past fields of grazing kangaroos to a nearby pub/restaurant for dinner. The motel itself is an old-fashioned roadside motel, but our room was modern, clean, and spacious. Communal cooking facilities are availabe if desired (we did not...

Bloke on reception was great, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Was all downhill from there; room smelt very stale and musty. Bed was not comfortable. Fridge was hideously noisy. The shower was useless!! Crap water pressure, could not control the temperature and the shower head would not stay up; try showering and having to hold the shower head up at the...

Angelina and Tony and their three children are always a delight to see. A very warm welcome and our room was quiet and very clean and comfortable. We stayed for 4 nights and used their kitchenette facilities and BBQ and enjoyed a wonderful morning breakfast in the dining room where many International guest and locals were. We only had to...

We were welcomed on arrival by our very friendly host. Maps and advice about various walks were provided. Places to eat and a chat about the area in general was next. Our room was quiet and comfortable with all our needs taken care of. Halls Gap is a very relaxing place tovisit

We only stayed 1 night, but it was fabulous and priced so well. The unit was comfortable and so spacious, i loved the communal kitchen and we met some lovely people. I would recommend this to everyone & f course Halls Gap is the perfect destination for a weekend (or a week) away.

We were made very welcome at his motel. The room was spacious and clean and comfortable. We sat at the picnic tables at the rear of the motel with some wine and cheese while kangaroos kept us company. Very serene.

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
