Sue made us feel so welcome from the start. The delicious breakfast and fantastic scones for afternoon tea reminded me of home. Excellent service and accommodation. Being that little away from town added to the experience. Book in you will not be disappointed. We WILL be back......

An absolutely beautiful and relaxing place. A home cooked breakfast every morning and freshly made afternoon tea everyday. Sue the host is able to recommend places to visit and then is interested in hearing how your day was. Watching the amazing sunset from the top of the hill each night was just stunning. A lovely property you are able to... More

We stayed four nights at Blickinstal and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room had all that we needed including a cot for our infant. It's the small touches that make this place special from the home-cooked breakfast, Sue's afternoon tea (even left in our room once when we were out), and the complimentary port for a nightcap. It's very central... More

Sue has done a nice job with Blickinstal and the location is away from the hustle and bustle of an 'in town' location! Pros: Great afternoon tea and breakfast, wonderful views west over the valley (particularly in the afternoon as the sun sets), comfy rooms with cosy beds and good pillows, free Wi-Fi, clean and tidy rooms, central to most...

We stayed for three days I one of the lodges. It was wonderful, relaxing, very comfortable and welcoming. Sue's breakfasts and afternoon teas were a delightful. We wished we could have stayed longer just to bird watch off our front patio.

What an unbelievable find in the Barossa Valley. The Blickinstal is situated overlooking the valley, with vineyards in the foreground and a sunset view of Adelaide on the horizon. Everything about this place was perfect. It's peaceful, serene, off the beaten track, yet just a short drive to Tanunda shops and restaurants. The hosts (including our new best friend, Lucy,...

We stayed three nights on this property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts are friendly, the rooms are luxurious and include some kitchen facilities. The breakfasts are delicious and there are plenty of wineries and restaurants in the vicinity. The property is less than 10 minutes' drive to Tanunda and is handy to the other towns in the Barossa.... More

We visited the Barossa Valley as part of our anniversary celebrations. Brick instal Retreat was a perfect place to stay. Peaceful, romantic and our host, Sue, could have been more helpful. Her cooking prowess was superb, breakfast was amazing. Our room was large, comfortable and the port supplied for a night cap was a nice touch. The views from our... More

Beautiful, relaxing, quiet surroundings. Well appointed rooms. Agree with previous comments however its the little details that you notice and for the price we were a little disappointed. With so many places to stay in the area we would prefer totry a different experience
