The Manna of Hahndorf
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Hahndorf
Reviewed April 9, 2014

We came mainly for the Adelaide Hills. Chosen Hahndorf to be our base which turns out a good choice as Hahndorf is the town where you can come back late,like after 7 and still find a good choice of eating places for dinner. The motel is well situated. Spacious rooms. Bathroom is pleasant, clean and like brand new. The room is specious though not brand new. The bed is king size and comfortable. Microwave oven available with an adequate supply of cutley for a simple meal. The restaurant,the Haus, just oppisite the motel opens late and provides a great dining experience.

Hello 'Chung S'
Thank you for staying with The Manna of Hahndorf for your stay in the Adelaide Hills. It is great to hear that you liked the rooms and the bathroom. Although built in 2008 our housekeeping team do a fantastic job to ensure our opening standards are upheld every day.
Our location is perfect for exploring Hahndorf, as we say 'life is more interesting on the street' and with so many locally owned restaurants and cafes to choose from you do not have to eat at the same place twice! (and you do not have to drive)
We thank you for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor and hope that you will visit us again. Take care.

Thank you for your review of our property. We are so pleased to hear that your first impression of our Motel and our Staff was welcoming. We always endeavor to ensure our guests experience a smooth booking and check-in process. That way you can make to most of your time away!
We are sorry that our Superior Room disappointed you. They are our starting room category and the next step up our are Executive Rooms which are a little bigger. If you are in the neighborhood again you will have to stay at our NEW property The Haus Studio Apartments, just over the road. They have a large double shower with wall jets!
We hope that overall you enjoyed your time in the Adelaide Hills and we hope to see you again. Thank you for taking the time to share you Hahndorf experience.

What a clean clean place to stay. The gal at the front desk was awesome and the rooms were the cleanest that we stayed. It was nice and quiet. It was recommended that we eat across the street at the Haus and we were not disappointed. The food and staff were excellent.

Hello Sherry1952 from Iowa,

Thanks for your feedback of your stay at The Manna of Hahndorf. It is great to hear of the fabulous job our Housekeepers do to ensure all our rooms are spotless clean.

We are perfectly located not only in the heart of the Adelaide Hills but in the Main Street of Hahndorf. There are lots of locally owned cafes, restaurants and boutique shops for you to get lost in for days. The great thing is that you get the best of both worlds as Hahndorf may be busy by day but by night it is like being in a different town altogether.

Life is more interesting in the Street

We appreciate the time you have taken to post a review and would love to see you again if you are ever out this way in the future.

Thank you

We chose the Manna based on recommendations from family who had stayed here before, and we weren't disappointed.

Everything from booking to check-in and check-out went smoothly, and the staff were really helpful to accommodate us during a busy long weekend. A very special thanks to Eliza, who was so helpful and accommodating (especially when I became indecisive about our room selection), she was just great.

We stayed in an executive room with a balcony overlooking a courtyard, which we thought would mean no privacy, but the foot-traffic through the courtyard was minimal, and it was nice having a bit of a view out to the Main Street to watch the world go by. The king bed was comfy, good selection of pillows. The aircon was efficient and quiet. The bathroom was new and very clean. And the modern decor in the room was stylish without being over the top. It would've been great if there'd been a bathtub, but rooms with bath are limited.

It also would've been good if the pool was on-site (instead it's down the road at the Hahndorf Inn), but you can't have everything, right?!

Overall, a lovely stay. We'd definitely consider returning if we were in town for another quick stay.

Hi kara2011,

We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us in Hahndorf.

We endeavor to provide our guests with a smooth memorable experience from start to finish and i am so pleased to hear that our Guest Services Team have achieved this. A big praise goes out to our girls, including Eliza, who are focused on ensuring that all our guests have an amazing Adelaide Hills experience.

Yes our sister Motel The Hahndorf Motor Lodge has a solar-heated pool which all our guests can use free of charge. It is 100m walk down the road. We'd love to build a pool at the Manna of Hahndorf but we are not sure where we would put it.

The Manna of Hahndorf is conveniently located on the Main Street of Hahndorf where everything is in walking distance and when all the day trippers go home at the end of the day it is a completely different town; nice and peaceful, the best of both worlds. Life is certainly more interesting in our Street.

When you come back and visit i recommend that you book one of our Spa Indulgence Suites which have a corner spa bath and a private balcony overlooking a small creek. These are a little further away from the other rooms making them super private and romantic.

Thanks for your lovely review and for taking the time to share your experience of our Adelaide Hills Accommodation. Please come and stay at The Manna of Hahndorf again!

We stayed 2 nights in Room 42 which was at the end of the block. What concerned us was the "Public Toilets" sign right outside, but luckily we never had an issue with strangers mistaking our room for common ablutions!

The Good:
- Location on Main street. You can walk to all the nearby stores, restaurants and bars with ease.
- There is also free parking for guests at the rear. The carpark does become quite full by late afternoon, so try to get in early.
- The above average bathroom amenities (exhaust fan/heat light, soap foam dispenser, extendable shaving mirror, huge shower cubicle).
- Free biscuits with tea & coffee in room.

The Bad:
- The slight ant problem in the kitchenette area. Luckily the ants did not stray into the bed or cupboards.
- Too much light coming in through the side of curtains.
- "Pumping" sound coming from bar fridge.
- Inconveniently placed light switches on the outside of bathroom.

Overall, it was not a brilliant or exceptional stay, but certainly not disappointing either. I would recommend it for a short stay if you prefer to walk everywhere rather than drive.

Hello J7J8J from Darwin!

Thank you for choosing to stay at The Manna of Hahndorf!

We certainly love our location on the Main Street of Hahndorf, you are so close to everything and at night time when all the day-trippers head back it is just you are the locals! Life is definitely more Interesting on the Street.

The main part of our Motel is shaped as a "U" with our Superior Rooms facing the outside of the property with car parking directly outside your room. Some of these rooms have our in close proximity to one of the public toilet buildings, although are hardly used as they are hidden off the Main Street. Our Executive Rooms are in the center of the "U" where there is also a small courtyard. We endeavor to cater for a wide variety of clientele as some prefer to park directly outside their room whilst other would rather be far away from the car park.

Around the property we have security lights which come on at night time for your convenience and safety when maneuvering around. These are of the lowest wattage globe as to not cause any disturbance. Inside your rooms to prevent the light protruding we have black-out curtains along with a sheer for daytime privacy. We have also had the Fridge inspected and fixed as it should not be 'pumping', we thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We are glad that you liked our Complimentary Tea, Coffee and Biscuits, plus the Eco-Friendly amenities. We also provide FREE Wi-Fi and Foxtel channels so please come and enjoy these great facilities again some time.

We appreciate you taking the time to share on Trip Advisor your Hahndorf experience!

I was so dissappointed by this place. I had read great reviews on trip advisor and seen beautiful pictures but that was not my experience. We were in a room opposite the towns public toilets which really wasnt an issue. Its not like a million people use them. The room itself was definately as picturesque as the ones I had seen on line. We had a King Superier Room. The bed was terrible. It was just so uncomfortable. Whilst I thought it, My husband actually said this bed is the worse. And thats a big statement from a truck driver who will sleep anywhere. The walls were also very thin. There was a function on somewhere near us and it sounded like we were in the middle of it. Whilst I understand that you can hold the hotel responsible for the neighbours, I think they should have built this place with better soundproofing. After the party finished, we could hear the room next to us everytime they went to the toilet and shut doors. Really annoying. But the confusing part to me was the pool. I asked where it was located and it was down the road at the back of another property. Not on their premises at all. Personally I like to have a swim and walk around with a towel on back to the room but I wasnt about to walk the street back to my room in a towel so we gave that a miss. I did speak to the lady on reception the next morning about my thoughts on the venue, and whilst she didnt build it, she really couldnt care less either. Her attitude was less than friendly on arrival, and more so on the Sunday morning on departure. Not a very good front face to the business at all. Wouldnt stay there again.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the rooms opposite the Public Toilet Block. Not sure how the other rooms are.

We appreciate your feedback and have addressed your concerns with both our General Manager and the landlord so that we can make the necessary improvements to ensure a utmost enjoyable stay for all our guests. We sincerely apologize to both you and your husband for the disturbance at night. It is hard for us when the occasion does arise where a fellow business/residence is a little noisy. This is beyond our control however we urge all our guests to report noise disturbances to our night manager when they do occur. He/She then can attempt to remove the disturbance for our guests. We do advertise that all our guests staying at The Manna of Hahndorf can use the pool at our sister property The Hahndorf Motor Lodge free of charge as it is not open to the public.

Hello RowanMarie,
We are so pleased to have provided you with a nice overnight stay. It is great that our sister property The Hahndorf Motor Lodge has a heated pool and spa for all our guests to use (FREE of Charge) and only 100m walk away. It is however disappointing that the food was only passable and i will most certainly be passing this feedback on to the restaurant manager.
We have a collection of packages with multiple venues and tourism products all over the Adelaide Hills to enhance your experience of our fabulous region - all of them of great value.
We thank you for sharing your feedback and hope you come and stay with us again!
