Have stayed here before and couldn't fault the Motel. The rooms were well serviced and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner was outstanding. The pool and grounds were very well maintained and we will definitely be staying here again.

Recently, whilst staying at this sub standard lodging . I witnessed a most uncomfortable situation. Unfortunately, whilst wanting a cooked breakfast for the duration of our stay. Which was only two nights, this couldn't be arranged... The lovely receptionist explained to us that their cook was unavailable. As for the swimming pool, Green and unswimmable. Best part of this place,... More

Recently spent a weekend there when having a look around the famous Barossa Valley. Nice comfortable rooms for a reasonable price. Friendly and helpful staff. Meal was fantastic and chef able to cater for individual needs.

I stayed for a night at the Barossa Motor Lodge, during a weekend in the Barossa Valley. I was a bit anxious because of some very negative reviews, but the lack of availability in the other places didn't give me much choice. Yes, the motel is a bit tired, the rooms could do with a reno, etc. But my room... More

stayed as the price is reasonable....accommodation in this region is expensive.....now we know why the price is reasonable......very very tired..needs a lot of love. Business and freehold for sale...you would think if they wanted the best price they would give it small overhaul. Staff are JUST OK... Room tidy up by house cleaning is not the best. Beds fine pillows... More

Pleasant enough stay, but could do with a modernisation facelift especially the bathroom. .but good value for a cheap'n'chearful stay..close to the Tanunda shops and wineries..If you're not looking for a palace, but a comfy bed after a hard day's wine tasting and Barossa Valley touring, can recommend

Have stayed at this motel on a number of occasions but as it is reasonably priced in comparison to the other Tanunda lodgings I overlook it's shortcomings. The motel has a great location as both my wife and I like to do a bit of walking, and the walk to the shops,restaurants etc is just about right in distance returning... More

Older type motel but still has everything we needed. Very quiet, large rooms, free wifi, walk into Tanunda, free guest laundry and insure restaurant. We had room service for dinner and it was excellent. Fresh, hot and good price.
