“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Just had a weekend at the golf resort and we all loved it. Golf course is excellent, staff were all friendly and very helpful. We had booked a family room which was two interconnecting rooms, perfect 2 bathrooms 2 double beds and 1 single bed. Modern and very new with fridge and free wifi. Food is good and there is a good choice, pizza, schnitzels, curry etc. 0ne negative would be price of breakfast at $25 per person thought it was a bit pricey.

Super friendly team who make your stay welcoming! A MUST DO is hire a buggy to drive the course and have a full body massage with Kate - she worked wonders on me! Lovely getting out of Adelaide and seeing the Fleurieu Peninsula.

Stayed for only one night in the refurbished rooms. Comfortable bedding & nice decor throughout with nice view across the golf course with Kangeroo's in the morning. Breakfast was nice though staff were a little distant.

Some places just 'feel right' and have a great vibe. For some reason, I cannot put my finger on, Wirrina does not achieve this for me. We stayed in one of the recently renovated rooms, which despite the 'new carpet' smell was very nice. Open the door and look outside however and you are confronted with a bit of a run down looking view across the swimming pool area. One part I love about Wirrina is the bar and restaurant area it is all very well set out and enjoyable to dine in. Unfortunately the food was just Ok to average, nothing bad but nothing really over the top exceptional either EXCEPT for one thing, the Croissants are baked on site each morning, if you wait for a fresh hot batch to come out, they are exceptional! The gold course is in brilliant condition and there are some lovely walks you can take around the lake and down to the Marina. But mostly, the place has a very run down feel not helped by a gaping hole in the passage ceiling, rotted wood in the pool area and many surfaces badly in need of a paint. We were woken on the first night by a group of people taking out in the passage and then in their room, the sound proofing between rooms seems very poor as they were not shouting but you could hear every word.

I decided for my 60th birthday to have a celebration with my family and friends away from home. We chose Wirrina, where we have been half a dozen times before and always enjoyed. This time we had 50 of our friends with us. The resort has been recently taken over by a new company and is in the process of a major upgrading. Some things have yet to be done, like the mini golf (which was still a great laugh), the outside of the buildings and some of the dining room furniture, however this really didn't detract from the whole experience. The staff were very helpful, the rooms great, the golf course amazing, the breakfasts fabulous and we will all be back - as soon as possible! What a brilliant way to spend a weekend!

Room Tip: The rooms are all good!!!

We stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms overlooking the pool. The room looked fantastic, was really clean & fresh smelling. All the refurb looks fantastic. We didn't use the spa but lots of people did & were having a great time.
The breakfasts we had were really great. Lots of selections & very fresh too.
We saw lots of wildlife - kangaroos, goats, ducks & birds. There was a beautiful sunset at the Wirrina marina. It's a lovely area to walk around.
This was our second time to Wirrina. We loved it last time & was more impressed this time. Well done to the management & staff. Everyone we encountered were friendly, helpful & courteous from check in to check out & everything in between. We saw lots of families enjoying the resort too

My wife and I stayed in a "Golf View" room for 2 nights and found it very comfortable and quite close to the main resort building. You are actually looking onto the fairway of the 10th hole. (Its nice to see other people get caught in sand traps as well.) The unexpected surprise with these rooms is the kangaroos that live on the grounds are normally within 10 meters of your door and are quite tame. Very photogenic. The pool, spa and 1st tee are all within a 3min walk or these rooms.

The restaurant has a top quality menu that is reasonably priced and the food is delicious.

With new owners taking over in the last 3 months, some areas were being refurbished but the ones that were completed looked great.

Finally the staff are very friendly and happy to help with anything. I recommend the 15 min massage machines for a post game rubdown.

Room Tip: Golf view rooms are the best for wildlife viewing and entertainment
