I can understand the good rating on this property; yes it's an exceptional motel. Roomy, squeaky clean, very very good amenities with small walk in kitchen, separate loo, lovely big shower room. Swimming pool on site. Close to town and the visitors centre. Friendly staff. If I come back to McLaren Vale I'll definitely stay again; thank you.

Our room was very clean and well appointed. Beds were comfy and pillows good. Breakfast options were very reasonably priced. Great outdoor set up with swimming pool and large entertainment area and bbq. My only criticism was that our room (25) was closest to the pool and entertainment area so the noise and lights after 10:30 kept us awake later... More

We were given a large family room with three beds and a kitchenette it was clean and comfortable and beautifully set up for anybody with a disability. I don't think I have ever stayed in a room which had been so thoughtfully prepared for anyone with mobility issues. Although we had no need of these facilities this trip, we have... More

This is our fourth stay at this motel. I highly recommend this place. Very close to some lovely restaurants in McLaren Vale. Great spot to relax after a day wine tasting. The rooms are very clean and all are good sizes. You can get rooms with kitchenettes or spa rooms or just motel rooms. The owners are very accommodating and... More

This is very good Golden Chain Platinum accommodation. We stayed for two nights, pre-Christmas, in one half of a two-bedroom unit, in a very quiet location. It was spacious and comfortable and we appreciated the separate shower and toilet. There is a beautiful pool, and an efficient laundry for guests. It is close to everything McClaren Vale town has to... More

Stayed in the 2 bedroom unit. It was 2 units connected via a common toilet and shower room. So we have 2 of everything - 2 fridge, 2 TV, 2 microwave, etc. No road noise, room is big, beds are comfortable, close to Main Road restaurants and shops. Good place to stay when you are visiting the wineries.

We and other family members were staying at the McLaren Vale Motel and Apartments as we were attending a wedding in the area. Overall I could see this motel has some excellent facilities such as new pool and some upgraged rooms. However in our room type C, failed on the basics. As if they have run out of money to... More

Thak you for your feed back and for notifying us on the day which helps us rectify issues sooner. We have been and inspected the bed and bedding, being the most important part of any accomodation property. Part of our quarterly bed maintenance is to turn and flip all beds which was done early December and at that time the... More

Very helpful reception staff, beautiful rooms i.e. comfy beds, kitchenette with microwave, plunger coffee, WiFi worked great and was included in the price of the room. It is within walking distance of all amenities........supermarkets, restaurants, winery (the historic Hardys Winery). What I liked best was the closeness of the restaurants and WiFi working smoothly and have to say there is... More

This is the second time we stayed at this motel/apartment. The first time we stayed in a deluxe room and this time in an apartment. The apartment is large with a fully equipped kitchen and even a washer and dryer, which is great if you are visiting Australia for a month. The Wi Fi was very good, the first time... More

Friendly, welcoming service. Manager Mark Vandeleur could not have been nicer or more helpful. Very large and comfortable rooms. Wifi worked well. They're doing a little construction currently, but it was not an issue during our stay. Recommended.
