We had prebooked, a bit disappointed with this place. It was clean enough but old and outdated. Four minute showers were requested but it took that long to get any hot water coming through to our shower, and then it kept going hot and cold. Bed was comfy.

We were aware this was a budget choice so we weren't expecting the Ritz, but goodness me there's budget and then there's tired, old, dated, lazy can't be bothered to make this place look nice type accommodation. I haven't seen blue plastic loos, or dated, tired bedcovers like these since the 80's. The airconditioner didn't work, it was cold -... More

Paid $150 a night for a very tired room and grounds, desperately in need of a makeover, would not have stayed except it was prepaid. Quite a distance from any restaurants and shops. TV small with basic channels, bed only just ok, wifi intermittent and extremely slow to the point of unusable. Could hear people in next room. Afternoon receptionist... More

We stayed a night over the weekend. Spacious room. Very clean and quiet. What more can any guest ask for? Service was friendly when we checked in although it was rather late in the evening. If there has to be any mild criticism I'd say I didn't like the pattern of the doona cover.

I was attending a Conference at Novatel Rowland Flat but it was booked out so searched about and found this. Now all I wanted was a bed, shower and quiet. And that's pretty much what I got so it was value for me. Nothing flash. And the night breezes did rattle the glass sliding door through the night. Basic shower,... More

Arriving at the motel and it looks a bit tired. Getting to our room and we were pleasantly surprised. Very clean and tidy. We brought our own pillows (from previous experiences at other motels), but these were not needed. The bed was comfortable. The only downside with the room was the heating. The unit didn't seem to work properly to... More

Booked this place cause its position in TA. Paid $130. It wasn't as good as expected. The room is clean and bed comfortable and the wifi is working although a bit slow. The place is aging and the room look like something out of the 60s. I was expecting something better as they charge more then most other places in... More

We try to keep our prices down, and the Saturday night charge is the cheapest in the Valley for 3.5 star accommodation. Yes we do have an older style motel, but it is the cleanest most affordable one in the valley. More

I stayed here with my partner and three adult children for an overnight stop whilst touring. We had two adjacent rooms which was very convenient. All my interactions with the staff were pleasant. Whilst the building itself seems in an older style, the beds were comfortable. The bathroom area had the toilet and shower areas separate from the sink which... More

I have stayed at The Barossa Motor Lodge at least 10 times now for work. I always find it to be clean and tidy (without exception thus far!). The staff are always friendly and extremely helpful and flexible to my needs. Always tempted by the Sticky Date pudding to finish an evening off :) Thanks and I'll see you again... More
