Arrived here for two nights having booked through a third party for a queen room. Booked about 8 months in advance. We arrived and we're told we were to be "upgraded" to a larger room. We walked into the larger room which consisted of 1 double and 2 singles and another separate room with a double. One bathroom. Just 2... More

We booked one night (Good Friday) in a king room. From reading recent TripAdvisor reviews our expectations were not high, but it was about the only place we could find at short notice. We were very surprised! The place is an early 60's motel which largely seems to have had little done to it except maintenance, updating of furniture and... More

We spent one night here. The room was clean and spacious and we found it to be quite comfortable. Across the road from Vinters Restauarant and you can walk there and back. Also just around the corner from wine tasting. The manager was friendly and helpful.

Our hearts sank the moment that we saw the property. Built in 1979, it is typical of its age, with small rooms and a lack of ventilation and light. Based on other reviews, we expected much more. Although the people are pleasant, a lot more could be done. The two saving graces were that we were only staying for one... More

Nice quiet location just 1 minute drive from the town of Angaston. Older style motel but neat and clean. Small room and ok for a short stay being fairly central to most things in the Barossa Valley. The bathroom and small kitchen area share the basin. Biggest downfall was the showers water pressure or lack of,which is either screaming hot... More

This little place was perfect for us-- humble, clean, friendly, affordable. So many great retro finishes in our room (in other words, it's not 'updated' but everything is spotless, freshly painted and charming), and everything we needed for a cuppa. Geoff was the perfect host and I only wish I'd seen more of Buddy and Rocky, motel mascots. We had... More

stayed here for 2 nights. Doesn't look much from outside but very adequate if looking for a base to explore the barossa. Rooms clean and roomy with adequate tea making and microwave. Perfect for access to the Angaston markets on Saturday morning across the road. Only minus maybe is no internet access.

We enjoyed our stay at this quaint, 80s motel in the Barossa. The room was huge, and although we had some issues with the hot water, we had a perfectly comfortable and happy stay. Comfortable beds, plenty of linen, although I think there was a misunderstanding as to how often the beds would be made up (we stayed 2 nights... More

Planned to stay for 2 nights but one was more than enough. We went elsewhere the second night. Office seems to be staffed part time. Our room was very dated and poorly cleaned with a strong sense that there had been no investment in paint or updating for decades. The road frontage of the motel seems ok, but a look... More

Booked in here for two nights for a break in the Barossa. Nice room, comfortable king bed no major complaints UNTIL!!! Evening of first night and again next morning realised that the shower was backing up and flooding the bathroom. As we headed out that morning I advised reception of the fault and left it at that, thinking they would... More
