The Dove Cote
Ranked #6 of 14 Tanunda B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 3, 2013

My husband and I booked the studio room recently and had a wonderful stay. The bed is comfortable, every little detail has been thought of from candles to minties to extra towels and the garden full of roses is lovely to wake up to. The breakfast provisions included were incredible- enough to feed a small army :) We will stay here again. Great location being just back from the main road yet still a close walk to everything in town plus a good central location for the great winery region. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Room Tip: studio was perfect for a couple, lots of room

Stayed here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed all The Dove Cote had to offer. It is located one street back from Tanunda's main street and is within easy walking distance to Restaurants.
The cottage is very well presented with a HUGE selection of quality breakfast goodies including fresh fruit. There was a nice carafe of port and some chocolates on arrival, and even bath salts for the huge spa.. Being a studio, the kitchen area was hidden behind some folding doors and was very small ,however we did manage to cook breakfast and one evening meal. Dont know why but there was an automatic red light that stayed on all night at the front door.Although there was air conditioning and electric blankets , it would have been nice to be able to enjoy either a nice gas or log fire.

We stayed in the larger back cottage. The property is well located , walk to town, with car parking and garden.
The accomodation in the larger cottage is fine, The breakfast suppplies were in the fridge but were not abundant for 2 people for 2 days. there were two pieces of firewood for the fire. We sent an email requesting more firewood so we could enjoy the fire but no contact or extra firewood appeared so we relied on the heated airconditioning.
The spa bath was lovely, with candles.
The bedroom and bed was fine. Entry to the propoerty not an issue

The Dove Cote was easy to find and in a great location to all wineries and other towns.
Upon our arrival, we accidentally let the front door close behind us leaving the keys inside. No problem - a quick phone call to Sue and she was on our doorstep re-opening up for us. Now that's service!
Once inside we were delighted to see a well stocked fire place (which we definitely needed as it was winter), an amazing choice of breakfast selections (which doubled as some lunches and dinners and still with food left over at the end of our stay), candles, chocolates and port.

We recently spent two nights at the Dove Cote staying in the studio room. The B&B is located a short walk to the main street of Tanunda. The owners have put all the special little touches into the room with lollies, dvds, candles and port all available. The breakfast hamper was extremely generous, I don't even think we ate half the food left for us. There was undercover off street parking at the back of the property. The spa was a good size, as was the bed. Every little thing was thought of, our stay at the Dove Cote was extremely relaxing. The only negative was that there was a bit of noise throughout the day from the car mechanic business across the street. Other than that I would definitely recommend a stay at the Dove Cote.

We stayed for 3 days in the cottage and what a great place to stay. From the fantastic location to the ample breakfast provisions (the Bacon was yummy).

The beds where comfortable as where all the furnishings. A real home away from home with a lot of charm and character.

The fire was great and made for great evenings in; with wine, food and friends. The little things are all there and what a great price. For value for money you cant beat this place.

What more can we say but we will be back.

Room Tip: Quiet Large bedrooms and great Spa and heaps of breakfast provisions

We escaped from a 5 star Hotel in Adelaide CBD to enjoy 3 days (2 nights) in Tanunda, Barossa Valley. The Dove Cote is a well kept gem! Clean, nicely maintained, with a unique soul. There is a small kitchen area and breakfast provision provided (eggs, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, milk and juice). At the back there is a small beautiful garden with white doves... Great place to stay for couples and then travel around and explore the treasures of Barossa Valley!
Thank you!
