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

Stayed overnight May 30th for a show at Tanunda Show Hall.Couldn't get in before 1pm which was okay.Once we got into our rooms we were overtaken by the hideous smell of room deodoriser being used by the cleaners.We had to leave our back door open,which meant leaving the room unlocked whilst out to try and ventilate the room because it...

Spacious organized layout with pretty nice rooms for a road motel. Friendly reception, 4,5% surcharge on the Amex card but none on Maestro/Mastercard. Car parked under roof right in front of the room. Town centre is some 2.5 km away and easy walking distance Peter Lehmann winery about 1 km! Restaurant was closed but there are a number of alternatives... More

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 It was clean enough but old and outdated.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
