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

Fantastic location, very serene and beautiful. If you like awesome water pressure in your shower then this is the place for you! There aren't any staff/service around from around 5pm-5am so bring everything you need for the night. We will be back!

Jacob Creek Retreat, not to be confused with Jacobs Creek Winery. Lovely location in the Barossa Valley. Ideal location to visit major vineyards in the area. Retreat itself needs a little TLC, Moderisation necessary in the major rooms. All rooms not kitted the same. Bathroom, jacuzzi, nice touch, but slightly dated. Swimming pool is a recent addition, pool chairs and... More

Fabulous accommodation, wonderful gardens & grounds, yummy breakfast served in the pavilion and great pizza (thanks Wyndham!). Expensive ... But very very nice. And did I mention the wine from Moorooroo park??
