Barossa House
Ranked #3 of 14 Tanunda B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We've just got back from a weekend in the Barossa, staying at Judi & Lee's Barossa House.

We were in the Eucalyptus Room overlooking the back lawns - a lovely cosy room. Judi's home cooked breakfasts were gorgeous and a good set you up for a day around the wineries.

We opted for a private tour with Lee, as we particularly wanted to go to Hensschke Wines plus a couple of others that we might not have got to as part of a group. Private tour is DEFINITELY the way to go. Who and what Lee doesn't know about the Barossa, I'm sure isn't worth knowing. He had some interesting stories and passed on so much knowledge to us and took us to some of his hidden little treasures... Needless to say, we tasted some fabulous wines and spent a fortune and has left us with the taste to return at another time.

Thank you Judi & Lee for a lovely weekend.

We stayed in the Jacaranda room for 2 nights and loved it - nice room with veranda and small seating area.
Lovely home cooked breakfasts each morning with the chance to mingle with the other guests and swap stories about tours and travels.
Went with Lee on one of his famous wine tours and had a great day visiting many of the small boutique wineries nearby including a beautiful alfresco lunch. We had a really good group on the tour and everyone enjoyed their day (especially the kangaroo feeding). It was well worth the money, and more.
Lee and Judi were perfect hosts and couldn't have been more accommodating - nothing was too much trouble for either of them.
We would happily stay here again if back in this area and would definitely recommend to others looking.

Barossa House is an ideal place to establish a base camp from when exploring the delights of the wonderful Barossa Valley. The House is nestled in a tree lined block, fronting the main drag, neighbouring a certain estate some argue as ‘...the fine purveyors of good casserole stock...’ It’s in the geographic centre of the Barossa, much like Parramatta is to Greater Sydney, so getting to most places does require wheels, but is by no argument any form of arduous trek. So, the ‘... centrally located...’ blurb you may read in advertising is surprisingly accurate. Be prepared for a short drive to the nearest restaurant, not a 2 minute stroll down the street.

With 4 rooms, this place is great. You don’t hear or see much of your fellow guests, as they’re off and about doing what you’re doing. It’s a great set up. The Jacaranda View Room can’t be faulted, unless your knees have given out, which means you probably should have been doing more exercise earlier on in time...! (Joke, folks, settle down wowsers...)

Lee’s ‘big breakfasts’ are talked up, and fairly so. He throws on a good spread and should you leave feeling peckish, you’re answerable to yourself only. A hearty and jovial start to the morning is on the cards, as Lee is one of those incurable ‘Morning People’ whom remain an enigma to many of us. Still, as part of the experience, a good feed and some inside local knowledge, fairly and freely dispensed from mine host, Lee, makes for a well prepared day experiencing one of South Australia’s gems. Furthermore, there’s no doubting Lee will go to the length needed to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable.

On the daily adventures and drinking in the brilliance of the environment, you have to option of being chauffeured and enlightened by Lee in his luxury bus, or you can do it yourself. Either way, you will be pleased that the stepping off point was from a great night’s sleep in very cosy and relaxing accommodation.

Room Tip: The rear rooms are great, almost no traffic noise. We couldn't fault the Jacaranda View.

Charming old house in the midst of the Barissa valley, walking distance from Tununda, but more convenient to drive or cycle (they have bikes) around the sites in reality.
Lovely owners with good contacts and knowledge of area.
Deliciously hearty breakfasts to prepare you for day in the vineyards. Communal table so be ready to socialize!
Rooms cosy and came replenished with port and chocolates. Insect spray was close at hand for a minor invasion. Otherwise a very pleasant stay.

We stayed here for two nights. We found a relaxing, friendly and helpful atmosphere in the house but in particular in the hosts, Judith and Lee. Super breakfast, prepared by Lee!
It was a good basis for wine tasting and visiting the area.
Distances to restaurants were a bit too long for combining the meal with too much of the excellent wines of the region...
The beds were fine and the room spacious although a bit outdated.

A point which may be incidental: during our stay there was outside an odd smell of which we could not determine what it was and where it came from.

We were very pleased with our stay at Barossa House. Both the house and rooms were exceptional and the hosts were great people. Breakfast was prepared everymorning and was exceptional. The B&B is perfectly situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley, very near to Tanunda, making it very convenient for day trips to the local wineries. Highly recommended!

Stayed for 3 nights (26, 27 & 28 March) in the quiet Jacaranda View room upstairs and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room is very spacious with a large flat screen TV (with Foxtel) and such a comfortable bed I wanted to take it home! The ensuite has a big shower which will comfortably accommodate 2 people. We were provided with port and chocolates in our room daily along with a sumptious big breakfast cooked by Lee (I am vegan and this was amply accommodated with a choice of cereals, home made stewed fruits, fresh strawberries and blueberries, soy milk, toast and preserves, cooked tomatoes and mushrooms, fruit juice, tea and coffee). We followed up Lee's recommendations for dinner (the Clubhouse and 1918), both of which were great choices. Lee and Judi are gracious and charming hosts with a wealth of information about the area and we would certainly stay again if we return for another South Australian holiday.

Room Tip: Despite being on a road used by trucks, the Jacaranda View room overlooks the back yard so we found...
