We are eight friends holidaying in Clare Valley and the Barossa. We rented the whole house. From the outside this property looked lovely. Inside it is dark, dreary and smelly. The sheets and towels are grey. The four bathrooms all leak. One bathroom has a tub so high off the ground you need a chair to get into it and when you are in the shower curtain wraps itself around you and leaks water all over the floor. The shower and tapware are rusty. One of the other showers is so small you could not fit in if you were more than a size 10.
Two of the bedrooms have "kitchens". That would be tea making facilities, a fridge and microwave and a tub to wash dishes which does not fit under the tap in the bathroom.
The sofas are old, torn and grubby. The "formal" dining room has chairs that you sink into and touch the wood at the bottom. The beds are like bricks and the pillows are as thin as cardboard.
One kitchen has a peeling wooden bench that I am sure the health department would deem unhealthy. The dishwasher in this kitchen actually fell out of the wall twice and when we used the toaster it shorted the electricity every time we used it until it was replaced. The other kitchen is accessed through one of the bedrooms so could not be used until the occupants woke in the morning. This made breakfast for eight very challenging.
The laundry had a passable washing machine and drier. However it was also for the use of the other four units at the back of the property. A sign saying use was between 10:30am and 9:30pm was completely ignored by those residents. The roof of the laundry had a possum nest hanging out of it so we did not wish to use it at night without a bodyguard.
The reviews on this property are mainly referring to the four brand new units at the rear of the property.
We were asked to pay in full before arrival......now we know why. We would not have stayed if we had viewed the property first.
The staff however are very pleasant!!!

Very nice accommodation within easy walking distance of the town centre. Quiet, comfortable and clean. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom apartments. Queen bed in one room and king in the other. No complaints at all. Reasonably pricy but you get what you pay for. Location is the key.

We stayed in the Sapphire Suite and enjoyed the open fireplace (plenty of wood left for the night and it was set up and ready to be lit when we got there) and a large corner spa in the bathroom which was really good. The suite was spotless and the bed was comfortable for us and it was very quiet. There is a full size fridge, microwave, plates etc but not really anywhere to wash them except for a washing up bowl and water needs to be accessed from the bathroom. However this didn't bother us as we ate out. Very short walk to main street of Tanunda. We would stay here again.

Room tip: Sapphire room has its own private entrance at front of building

We took the whole house and it was great, exactly what we needed for 13 people. There was lots of space and it was generally very well equipped to cook although hard to fit everyone in the dining room at the same time. There were only 15 beds so not sure how it sleeps 19 and given it's old style think it would be weird to just have a room there. That said if I had a big group I would use it again and would also highly recommend vintage chef catering. Teagan and her team were amazing and made a birthday dinner party a holiday highlight.

Lovely and reasonable place to
Stay in a quaint old house - our room had a kitchen as well that was really well appointed.
The owners were unbelievably nice to us and I can't say enough good things about them. Really nice little touches included like a litre of milk in the fridge and chic chip cookies, olive oil and condiments and then
a hair dryer in the bathroom
The place also had a nice and clean indoor pool. Easy check and out too. Can't recommend them highly enough
