This place probably should change its name from 'Retreat". The cottages are very old which is rustic and fits the area but the interiors are in need of refurbishment. Not really sure the electricity in the bathroom is completely safe and we really didn't appreciate the fact you could reach your bar fridge from the toilet! The rooms were overrun... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. The culmination is delightful! Lovely cottages. Our room has an amazing sunken bath tub. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Breakfast was good. It does however feel as though it could have a bit of money spent on it - but it kind of lends itself to the rustic charm. Amazing grounds . The... More

My husband and I had been looking forward to exploring the Barossa for a while and were willing to pay for luxury. If you are too don't come here! We weren't expecting a resort with all the 'mod cons' and were looking forward to staying in a location with the country charm - if that's what your after don't come... More

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
