We found the Clare Valley Motel a great place to stay. As a receptionist from an interstate motel, i was very impressed with the quality of the room, i found the grounds very intriguing, and the staff were magnificent. We will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We chose one of the cottage queen rooms, which, as clearly explained to me upon booking is smaller t...

What a wonderful motel to find. Modern room decor, very comfortable bed and good sized bathroom and....quiet surrounds. The garden/pool outlook is relaxing with a fabulous bbq area by the pool. The fresh cut rose in a vase on the table in our room is a very thoughtful finishing touch. Lee, Jan and staff are friendly and very helpful making our 2 night stay one to remember. Thank you Lee & Jan, your motel is the best we have stayed in throughout our recent travels in SA

Without doubt, the best motel that we have ever stayed at.
Cleanliness, friendliness and the attention to detail such as the fresh stemmed rose each day impressed the most.
Will definitely recommend to all our friends.

Room Tip: Budget rooms minus spa are more than adequate if you only need somewhere to sleep and take a shower.

This is an excellent motel. We stayed two nights while sightseeing in the Clare Valley and found the staff were very helpful. The room was very modern and well equipped, with a spacious bathroom. It is a 10 to 15 minute walk into the town, but easy drive. The grounds are very pretty with nice gardens, also a nice swimming pool. The restaurant was excellent and we enjoyed dinner there once again with excellent staff which all added up to a very pleasant stay.

This is a good 3 star motel. It has a reasonable small onsite restaurant which is worth trying. The spa bath room we had made the room a bit small compared with a room without. Good seating areas outside near the pool. Friendly welcome and staff. A good 15 minute walk into Clare itself.

This place is the only place to stay in Clare - we stayed 4 nights and were sorry to leave.
Lee and Jan are attentive to detail and have a wonderful motel.
The rooms are large, the beds comfortable and everything very clean.
All staff have a smile on their face and address you politely.
Breakfast is a delight in there diningroom
Dinner is a must with their Belgian Chef - try the surf and turf and the scallops
In all, this motel exceeded our expectations

Room Tip: Don't go past this place or you'll be disappointed - could not fault it
