Nice and private retreat, B&B style. Beautiful setting woukd look its best mid spring and through summer. Suites are nicely appointed with old period style furniture with good modern conveniences like a proper coffee machine. Great in room spa bath which easily accommodates two people and likewise the shower with decent water pressure making a nice change from the restricted... More

Great getaway with fantastic grounds. The personal service is something I haven't seen in a long time anywhere and it was rather refreshing how friendly the staff were. I will definitely be returning soon to try the rest of the 80 vineyards I didn't get a chance to!! I would suggest to people staying to definitely reserve a table at... More

Here with friends as part of a few days checking that Barossa reds were still worth drinking. A charming spot bisected by Jacobs Creek; we were assured by a wine guide at Rockford that this was the only establishment on a dead end road and I suspect he had checked a few roads out on the way home from events!...

Our visit was "off season" so pretty much had the place to ourselves. While we thoroughly enjoyed being there, there is a strong sense that someone needs to spend some money on the place to tidy up the loose ends. Things that don't work or are falling apart. The hostess was excellent and helped with things like restaurant choices and... More

Over priced for what is available on the site. At $450.00 a night with a 3pm check in it is just not value for money. It's old and although room had a heater it is very basic. Cooked Breakfast was good. Door to eating area needs fixing. The setting may be better during warmer months.

In general, the place is a little rundown which both adds to the rustic appeal but also drops the quality of the experience. We booked the retreat which sounded promising but sound was the issue. The air conditioner was clearly in need of repair as it provided a constant noise that gave us two choices - turn it off and... More

My husband and I stayed for a weekend in the barossa. This place looked lovely. It's quiet. It's romantic and it's got the 'cottage to yourself ' feel going on. But I feel for 450dollars a night there could definitely be some improvements. I was uncomfortably cold throughout the nights in the cottage. The bathroom is freezing with no slippers... More

Great area, and staff were lovely, however for the price I expected it to be cleaner. It was by no means dirty, but we felt as though the place felt a little dusty. However, there was a delicious breakfast and I would definitely recommend it for a romantic getaway!

A lovely setting, however, we stayed in the loft room and found the Shabby Chic decor a little more shabby than chic. For the price we paid $740 for 2 nights we expected more, such as a shower accessories rack in the shower, Wi fi in the room, a door that opens correctly to the breakfast room a small table... More
