“Excellent, spacious, quality accommodation central to Victoria's goldfields heritage”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

Starting with a great booking experience online through TripAdvisor, and great follow through by Jacqueline (the owner), every stage of our four night "escape" exceeded our expectations.
The Scout Hall is a spacious, marvelously well-appointed choice for a couple, family or small group of friends. Jacqueline was helpful throughout (including re-stocking some necessities she knew we were low on), checking in with us several times by SMS to ensure all was well.
Positioned ideally, all the central Victorian goldfields heritage (and wineries) are on the doorstep, yet the location provides seclusion and privacy.
All as advertised, everything just worked - all we needed to think about was how best to enjoy our time.

“Character, quality, charm and a lovely evening with the 'girls' at Treads”

Half business, half pleasure stop over with a friend at the Scout Hall turned into a very enjoyable evening meeting friends of Jacky (the owner) at the local cafe/pub/motel Treads.
The Scout Hall had it all, space, comfort and quality. Extremely generous kitchen supplies (that was wonderful bread and great selection of fruits and cereals). I would say it would be a great place for a romantic get-away too with the wood burning stove and free standing bath! As an oldie I would say it provided comfort, privacy and convenience. Suggest it would be a great place for a family reunion, the kids could put on great plays on the stage. Well done Jacky and thank you.

I brought my family here over a weekend and we fell in love with the place. Big open plan living with all the amenities, great location, 2 min walk to harcourt and close to the wineries and castlemaine. A fantastic place in a beautiful part of Victoria.

The Scout Hall was a great place to stay. It is easy to get to and easy to find. Jacqueline was very helpful and even picked up our kids from the station. There were some delicious provisions for breakfast. It has a secure yard and is quiet and spacious.
We booked for a couple of nights and ended up staying longer.

“Wonderful relaxing weekend”

We took Canadian friends to the goldfields area for a weekend and found it perfect for our requirements. Massive entertaining area beautifully decorated. We wanted to go to the local bistro for a meal but it was fully booked so had a barbecue at home. We invited family that lived nearby and had the best evening together. They loved the place as much as we did. Our Canadian friends were most impressed withe wonderful facilities. Highly recommended.
