We had booked to stay at Jacobs Creek Retreat as part of our honeymoon, hoping to enjoy the 'luxury boutique' accommodation described on the website. Although the rate was quite high ($370/night), we wanted to treat ourselves, so booked anyway - what a huge mistake! There's a good reason why the owners have a strict no refunds policy - nobody...

We came here for our honeymoon as it was recommended to us. We were very disappointed. Our Room was extremely small and cluttered. Spa jets worked intermittently and bed was very uncomfortable. We had no car and didn't bring food and our only access was takeaway for lunch/dinner as in town was booked out. Taxi costs over $20 one way... More

My partner and I travelled from Hong Kong over Easter weekend and stayed in the orchard room- it was an absolute fairy tale. The beautiful antiques, the picturesque views and the attention to detail was just perfection. The whole feel of the retreat was that of a Tuscan hideaway ( with a rose garden to rival Kew gardens!) and the... More

Stayed here with friends and what a relaxing place this is. From the moment you arrive you feel at peace in the spacious grounds with old world charm. Charles was so helpful and informative and made everyone feel so comfortable from arrival to departure. Our rooms were very comfortable and the staff efficient and helpful to us. Had no problem...

We have been touring Australia and this is one of the highlights of our travel. We were met by Charles , what an absolute gentleman, who showed us our room and then a guided tour with history of the grounds. He even arranged evening meals in local restaurants which was really good as we had no idea of where to... More

Jacobs Creek Retreat, situated in the heart of the Barossa is only minutes to Tanunda. On arrival we were greeted by the owner of the property who insisted we wine taste with him at the cellar door until Charles (the host) arrived - who would say no? Charles was most accommodating, showing us around the grounds, providing local knowledge and... More

The buildings and grounds here are stunning. It's a quiet, relaxing place to stay. But, this is definitely not a resort, it's glorified B&B. It's absolutely fine if that's what you want, but very disappointing if it isn't. Not at all good value for the price. The rooms are tiny. Breakfast is only available during a very short, inconvenient window... More

Have a fantasy of owning an old, vineyard estate? If so, you can live it out at this stunner of a retreat in fabulous Barossa. We only stayed here one night due to our schedule, but I was longing for many more. Charles, the host, is gregarious, helpful, and has thought of every comfort. Our room was extremely well appointed,... More
