Blickenstall is a Barossa icon, with a 40 year history of offering great accommodation with great hosts. We stayed in the block of two apartment style cottages. They are well fitted out and comfortable, but there is no longer any personal touch. The gardens/grounds have been let go, the casual seats on the veranda looked welcoming, but so dirty and...

Part of the reason I choose a specific property has to do with the people who host us and knowledge of the local scene.  With so many choices in the  Barossa Valley, that insider perspective is like gold. Unfortunately it seems this property has changed hands and lost that local touch.   We asked for help with dinner reservations, none was...

we arrived at the end of the heavy rains that devastated several areas of the Barossa Valley. A young man helped us with our luggage in the pouring rain. The unit was very nice with large glass windows that looked out onto a garden. It had a very nice living room area and kitchen area with complementary port, coffee, and...

We stayed here in September - beautiful and peaceful. Lovely afternoon tea - fresh home made cooking. Fireplace was a bonus - my partner lit it and we enjoyed the warmth in the room. We were made very welcome.

We stayed 2 nights in an apartment-loft next to vineyards at Blickinstal in the middle of the Barossa Valley. There were 2 of such units next to each other on a slope, and 4 smaller units on a lower slope. Our accommodation was 40 years old, but clean and well maintained. What made it particularly special was the complimentary full...

Wonderful small bed & breakfast, privately run, against the hills and away from traffic. Individually cooked breakfast plus afternoon tea. Best view of the valley from an un-marked outlook above the B&B. Rooms are a bit rustic, but comfortable.

The room was very comfortable, well appointed and has every convenience one might need on a short stay away from home, including complimentary local port for a nightcap on a cold night. Our host Sue, was there to welcome us and show us to our room when we arrived and introduced us to the new owner, Han. Our delicious breakfast...

Slightly dated rooms on a beautiful farm a short drive from Tanunda. Friendly hosts who serve up a great breakfast. Beautiful farm with grapes vines, sheep, an alpaca, roaming kangaroos, heaps of birds, butterflies, and a great view over the valley. The room was clean and well appointed. Close enough to walk to a couple of wineries (2km) or bike...

It has dvds you can borrow, an honesty box with $1 choccy bars and a big umbrella outside each room for rainy days. A generous selection of Twinings teas, fresh milk and a bowl of Minties and Fantales in your room. Quality magazines. Chairs and...

We spent 3 nights at Blickinstal and found it to be a wonderful place to stay. The hosts are lovely people, the rooms are large and well appointed, the breakfasts are as good as you will get anywhere, and the views are spectacular. The B+B is well located, and being a little out of town, it is very quite at...
