8 of us arrived late evening and were made very welcome. The food was delicious and portions were big. We all selected different meals from the menu and we were all very satisfied with our choice. Our waiter was great, he was engaging and attentive. There really isn't much else you could ask for.

In the area to visit the Seppelt’s Great Western Cellars before they (sadly) close down, we stayed at Diamond House as a matter of convenience. Although the room was basic, it was clean and warm … and cheap! But this review is all about the restaurant…

With a fairly limited selection of places to eat in Stawell and seeing the steaks here got rave reviews, we played the “Occam’s Razor” card and dined in at the motel restaurant. Owner David is an entertaining character who clearly loves a good debate – we found him to be convivial and lively. Ably assisted by son Ben at front of house, the duo provide a friendly but very efficient experience. We started with drinks at the cute bar and sampled a couple of starters as snacks – the pork pie was great, the damper was tasty too but a bit on the dry side. We all opted for the Angus steak and it absolutely swept us away! Tenderness, flavour and perfect cooking don’t always go hand in hand – but this meal scored all three. The steak was to-die-for tender, cooked to perfection (we all ate ours rare) and the flavour was a-maze-ing (yes, I know there’s no “e” in amazing!) The huge chunky chips that came with the steak were pronounced by all of us to be the best we’d ever tasted. The veggies were traditional but well executed. A decent bottle of wine, recommended by David, washed it all down nicely .. I’d have loved to try a dessert but we practically rolled out of the place as it was. It’s an unexpected gem of an experience to eat food this good – despite the many positive reviews on Trip Advisor, I have to admit our expectations were not overly high and we were so glad to be caught out!

We had the best, succulent steak. We can recommend this any day. Beautiful heritage and great service.

We always stop here on route to Adelaide because they have the best steak, can do it gluten free, and with great veggies... The owner has that funny grumpy style and gets food on the table fast. There is a high chair and the steak is so big I can give him a meal from my plate... It's very relaxed and comfortable and the building has real charm. We love it.

We stayed at the Motel and ate in the Restaurant also. The service and food were first rate. I was taken down to the wine cellar to choose my wine by the waiter, as I am pretty fussy with wine plus I got to see where the wine is kept. The Motel was average, the food and wine very good.
