Found this via TA and thought this would be a good base to visit the Grampians, as Halls Gap was full because of the food & wine festival. We didn't know yet that the Grampians couldn't be visited due to the january storms which washed all the roads away! Our first impression was not so good, the place looked really dreary (it rained...) but when we entered the room we were pleasantly surprised! Large and with a refurbished bathroom. Really beautiful. The room itself still needed work done and only half of the lights worked. Actually everywhere there were 2 lamps in a sconce, only 1 worked. Maybe they wanted to save power. On both evenings we ate in the restaurant. It was quite good and very popular, always busy. The owners are friendly and show genuine interest in their guests. I like that! They also had a good wine list and the specials on the black board were lovely. There was only one real gripe: we came back to our room the second evening and the bathroom smelled like raw sewage. This lasted the whole night. It helped to close the shower door, probably came out of the drain. I did tell the receptionist the next day because it might be a construction fault.
