Easily found at the edge of Mclaren Vale. Very clean and comfortable room. Lots of space for overseas luggage. Sadly the pool is still under renovation. Suggest membership of Golden Chain for best price and take your own breakfast cereal! Many rooms apparently recently renovated. Friendly management and staff. Some advice about eateries a bit out of date. Good overall... More

We had a big room with modern decoration, extensively equipped. The bathroom was massive with a modern washing machine and dryer - a godsend in the middle of five weeks touring. It formed a great base for visiting the McLaren Vale wineries and was within easy walking distance of restaurants. Service was good.

The room is huge with double shower and spa bath and separate loo(great thing). And very clean. Also allowed an early checkin. Within easy walk of everything. And used "chook" as... More

After four nights in the Barossa Valley we came for four nights to the McLaren Vale for some more Wine tasting. And this Motel / Apartement-Motel is a perfect base for that. It's at the end of the (small) town, very close to the main road but still quiet. There was some constructing / refurbishement going on at the time... More

We stayed here on a 2 night stay over for a car rally what a great place !! So clean and a great position able to walk to town no noise and owners that are looking to the next era of guest comfort. The pool area is undergoing a re build which will be good for the summer the beds... More

Stayed here a few times for work and pleasure. Great spot for winery cycling; we did coast and hills on same day and we aren't fit. Friendly team. Good wifi. Clean. Well furnished. Ask for a recently refurbished room.

Very friendly, helpful manager. Quiet, handy location to town, an easy walk. Had a nicely renovated family unit which was very spacious and clean. Separate kitchen well appointed. Separate toilet & separate large shower. Visitors Centre very handy. Short drive to all the local beaches, vineyards.

An easy 45 min drive from Adelaide airport brought us to this lovely little 'motel & apartment'. The lodging was conveniently located within walking distance from the Mclaren Vale Visitors Centre - that is a plus. In this sleepy part of town, its also within 5 to 15 minutes walk to a couple of good restaurants that were open every... More

It looks like a pretty standard motel, certainly nothing super special, but turned out to be very good - rooms have been recently renovated and clean, with a small kitchenette and big shower. The rooms are quite quiet too. A really good base from which to explore McLaren Vale! Free WiFi is very helpful too.
