Stayed for a wedding The rooms are a motel style setting rooms were neat & tidy bed was very comfortable. Not the greatest variety in the mini bar. Wedding reception was great the bar/waiter staff were very friendly & helpful food was fantastic. sadly the same couldn't be said about the security employee he was quite rude and un-professional

Our second stay at Serafino did not disappoint. Great rooms, great service, great restaurant and easy walk to the town. Didn't experience any of the issues some of the negative complaints made, and as for the price - you know that up front, and certainly get what you pay for. Excellent all round.

We stayed at Serafino's when we turned up at alternative accommodation in McLaren Vale we had booked but they didn't have us "in the system." When we called Serafino's at 8pm on a Friday night they were only too happy to accommodate us - amazing at such short notice. We arrived to find everything the booking completed and the gentleman...

Stayed here with a group of friends after a planned wine tour. The food at the restaurant was quite nice. The sparkling wine in the room was a good touch but i believe the rooms are slightly overpriced for what you pay. Would absolutely still recommend though.

I keep coming back to this place and the experience improves each time. A relatively recent winery in South Australian standards, however the Italian influence certainly shows through with the wines on offer. A surprise is the Vermintino which is a new style for Australia. this white is perfect for the hot Australian summer, being light and refreshing. I did... More

All the ingredients for an amazing day were there. The wedding ceremony was held in the shade of a magnificent old gum tree with a backdop of the lake filled with ducks. A most beautiful and romantic setting. Then there was the Wedding Reception. I don't really know what to say except it was amazing. Staff can make or break... More

We last stayed there 2 or 3 years ago, and decided it was time to go back. The motel rooms are starting to get a bit dated but noted that they were renovating them one at a time, so no problems there...Clean and tidy, with excellent daily room service which could not be faulted. The restaurant is fine dining and... More
