I didn't have unrealistic expectations of this motel, but for the money it was very basic, outdated and I would not stay there again. I've paid less at 5⭐️ accommodation. Positives were it was clean and the staff helpful.

This Motor Lodge is vey outdated and basic in its offerings. Yes there is free wifi, however everything else feels as if you are in a time warp from many years ago. It was clean and the bed was comfortable, however I would strongly recommend searching for something better appointed.

Really good, clean and affordable accommodation, for when really all you are looking for is somewhere to rest your head for the night. First impressions were nice, friendly staff and we could park right outside the room and the car was under cover. The room themselves were clean, the amenities were basic, but worked well. There was heating in the... More

We stayed for a weekend to enjoy the wineries. Hosts Jeff & Lesley were most helpful in giving us directions to the best places to see.We arrived back exhausted at night to lovely country style home cooked meals. We found the rooms very clean and tidy. They were basic but good value for money and oh so quiet.. Parking right... More

Have been staying one night a week for the last two and a half years. Have found the beds very comfortable. The rooms are always clean and tidy. The owners and staff are very friendly, accomodating and helpful. Can recommend for anyone who wants a good basic place to stay while enjoying the joy of the Barossa.

Had a lovely quiet stay at the lodge ..... Love the undercover parking directly in front of the room ... especially in this cold weather. Meal in the restaurant was outstanding, and great staff to have a chat with. Will definitely go back next time I am in the area.

Our room was super quiet, clean, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Yes the motel was dated but for $100 I was expecting a lot worse. The heating had been turned on for us before we arrived so room was nice and warm, except for the bathroom and toilet which were freezing. Only complaint was the tiny TV (why are... More

We like staying at this motel. The manager and his wife have always been really helpful. Nothing was ever too much. The rooms were always clean, service friendly and prompt. It is an older style but we liked the layout, under cover parking at the front of the room very convenient. Didn't hear the next door guests talking. Didn't hear... More

First impression of the motel was fairly disappointing. The reception was dark, and smelled musty. The service was average - not entirely unpleasant, but certainly not warm and welcoming. The room was ok, very dated as other reviewers have mentioned. The air conditioner was very loud, and as it was a cold night we had the heat going, but it... More
