Not recommended at all. Photos are deceiving as this property is not maintained to a level expected of even basic accomodation. Left over dairy items left in fridge on arrival. Outdoor garbage bin full on arrival. Only 3 forks (accom sleeps 6). Dirty & damaged outdoor tables & chairs. Indoor furnishings dusty & in need of a good clean. Empty wine & water bottles left on porch. Dish washer out of order. No pegs for laundry. Limited privacy for master bedroom (off living area) In complete building finishes. No safety rails on veranda. Cluttered. Definitely NOT the Executive Retreat advertised.

Cleanliness really let this place down. Floors and surfaces were a bit dusty, there were crumbs on the sofa, but the worst part was all the dead flies on the edges of the bedroom and living room. They really should have given the place a vacuum before checkin. Amenities were nice, with spa and modern kitchen. Be aware that there is no mobile phone or data reception in this area.

A luxurious getaway spot

Pros: Spa and onsuite
Cons: A larger TV and cleaner floor Access to the site is unpaved road with many holes Bad mobile phone reception in the area
Location: Pinnacles Wonderland McKenzie Falls
Spa is the best facility to utilise after a hard day of walking and hiking in the woods. The site is well set up and the owner is prompt with all my small concerns raised through the mobile phone. I get to see wallabies just outside the windows every morning and the place is truely money well spent!

Why do you need to give a title for these things?

This is a nice place. Good facilities. The spa is amazing. It's secluded and private and there really are animals everywhere when you get up in the morning and in the evening. The location is great - away from the hustle and bustle of halls gap but only a quick drive away. We found the bed to be super uncomfortable though. It's really, really soft with all the support of a hammock so we woke up in pain every day. Plus it's really cold. We left the heater on all day while we were out just so we wouldn't freeze at night when we got back. The tile floor does not help, nor does the open shower. We stayed the last weekend in September so I certainly wouldn't come here in the middle of winter, but it's probably better in the warmer months. Could have used a thorough clean but wasn't too bad.

Lovely setting but maintenance poor

The cottage and surrounds are gorgeous but unfortunately it is not maintained to the standard expected for the price. The toilet bowl was dirty, there was no wood in the basket for the fire, no salt in the shaker, no tissues, no drinking glasses or garbage bags. There were flies spiders and cockroaches. The door between the bedroom and lounge was broken and the outdoor shade cloth loose at its hinges so it flapped and banged all night in the wind keeping us awake! I have never written a negative review before and emailed the owners for their feedback but very disappointingly no response. Hence why I write this now. Such a shame as this property has a 5 star / 10 out of 10 potential given the right TLC.

great location and concept needs lots of work

Pros: Views, location, wildlife, open fire and spa.
Cons: Grounds and the condition of the accommodation. The front door was broken, lounge was old, rubbish around behind the house.
Location: Halls Gap and all the attractions of the Grampians
The idea of a bush retreat was fabulous, the location and views were great and the local wildlife abundant. The property itself needs lots of work, grounds and accommodation. Definitely not 5 star although the open fire and spa were lovely. We enjoyed our stay but felt a bit ripped off with the pricing for what we got. Communication with the property managers was difficult as they were hard to understand on the phone.

Good hotel away from everyone and peaceful

Inside the room was really nice but outside needs a lot of work, also the air conditioner doesn't really work well when it's really hot.

Room with a view of nature

We were late getting to our accommodation due to floods and the owners went out of their way to make sure we had an additional contact and ringing us regularly until we were there. The accommodation was beautiful and our kids absolutely loved waking up to kangaroos and emus outside their bedroom window. Beautiful location.
