We were in town one night for a business function at the Vine Inn, and stayed at the facility's Vine Court about 2 min down the main street. The function went well, and was well appointed, and all staff were very helpful (from the function to reception to the bottleshop guy who helped with heaps of directions). But I reckon we should have stayed in the main Inn. Not just for convenience, but probably for a better deal for the money. Maybe $40 or so more would have meant a better room? The Court was very affordable, but our particular room was extremely out dated. We had trouble finding it at first (although this isn't a bad thing - it's not directly facing the main road so it's more quiet than expected), and upon arrival there were a few tradies hanging around in front of their room drinking. Not to judge a book by its cover, but I worried we were in for a noisy night, and as a woman I never like to see drinking guys loitering near where I'll be sleeping...I wondered why reception gave us the room right next to them - or anyone, when clearly there were plenty of other rooms available. Maybe that's just where all the budget rooms were in the complex? Turns out the guys were absolutely NO problem whatsoever, were quiet and kept to themselves. Anyway, the room was very 'old school' - straight from the late '70s in decor (except for the flat screen tv), and very tired looking. It was dark, and somewhat depressing. But everything worked fine, the shower was clean - no shampoo though, so we had to rush out to the supermarket for supplies. Husband didn't sleep well but I thought the bed was fine. As a one night business trip, it did its job and we have nothing that we'd complain about to our bosses. But I wouldn't want to be there on holiday, unless you plan on spending lots of time out of the room and just want to crash there to sleep. (I had a similar experience elsewhere in the Barossa - maybe beware of anything too 'budget' in the region if you're looking for a modern aspect). I did hear that other rooms in the Court were like apartments and much more modern, and still modestly priced. That, or the main Inn might be a better choice if you are there for longer. All up it was totally functional and fine. But a small bit of work could probably make a huge difference.
