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?

We had booked into a budget room and were very pleased with the facilities. We had a large room with microwave, crockery & cutlery and were able to eat in. There was also a free gas bbq outside & small kitchen area with tables/chairs in a nearby room. Fantastic value!

The Gariweld Motel was a great find for our weekend in the Grampians! The managers were delightful and extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was basic but met all our needs, was extremely clean, warm and comfortable and the hot shower was well appreciated. In a fabulous location from the main centre, only a short, easy walk along a bike path to the local shops Lovely to see kangaroos in their natural habitat and a stone's throw from the main road up to all the tourist lookouts. An absolute bonus to be able to take our little Maltese terrier as the motel is very dog friendly!! If you want a fantastic, authentic Indian meal then highly recommend Spirit of Punjabi (thanks Kelly) while Livefast cafe serves an amazing brekky and coffee!! Gariweld Motel offers all that you require for a stay in one of the most picturesque places in Victoria!! Many thanks Kelly and staff!!

The Gariwerd Motel was the perfect place for my partner and I. Our room was nice and spacious, with a comfortable bed and a cute dining table; the amenities made food prep and storage super easy, and their no-contact text messaging was super helpful and incredibly friendly. An affordable, comfy room in a prime location - my partner and I are guaranteed to be back.

We stayed here 3 nights and the room was warm, clean comfortable and had everything we needed. The managers although covid safe were always available for info and suggestions and knew the area very well. Their use of technology to ensure we had everything was impressive and their website with things to do, best places to go and walking tips was excellent..... and its great value as well!
