“Nice hotel in the centre of Hahndorf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night and enjoyed our visit. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice bed and a large TV. You could hear the shower in the room next door but we were up pretty early and didn't mind. The location is great and we really enjoyed being right in the centre of town.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

My partner and I stayed there to get away from the city life for the weekend. We checked in, used the pool and spa and went for a walk in the main street and had dinner. Really close to everything and very convenient. The haus restersunt across the road in which the hotel recommends was very nice for breakfast too! The only problems I had was that we were not told before our stay there would be a $50 charge put on my credit card for hold, I was ok with this as I was told it would be able to be used again when I checked out. It's been 1 week today and2 phone calls later and the $50 still has not become avaliable in my account. The staff have not been helpful and have suggested that I wait another week!!!! For it in the account.
Mostly not happy about this as I was not told to start with and then given wrong information at checkout about when I would see my money again, this would be the only reason we wouldn't stay again.

Pros
Friendly staff
Comfortable bed and clean room
Good water pressure in shower

Cons
Noise from adjoining rooms-I could hear reception on one side and the other occupants in the room next door, hear the t.v, smell their burnt toast and not a chance in hell of sleeping in on a Sunday.
Advertised in room hairdryer, none to be found when needed.
Bad television reception of stations I actually wanted to watch and I only had one Foxtel channel available.
Lack of natural light/privacy unavailable if you do wish to let the light in. The shim doesn't help.
Not of the standard expected for the price paid unfortunatley.

Room Tip: Not the worst place, not the best!

We stayed here for a couple of days and used it as a base to explore the Adelaide Hills, Adelaide City and the Fleurieu Peninsula. The hotel was older, but quite comfortable and clean. We had quite a lot of rain during the nights we stayed and the sound on the roof, was quite loud however. It was right on the main street, which is great to explore Hahndorf itself. Plenty of parking too.

Lovely big room, warth and comfort touches. Staff welcoming and helpful. Snuggled well behind an old hotel and the main street - walking distance to everything. I generally hate a shower ccrtain and bad shower but this paled into insignificance as the bed was very comfy. I would love to return with the family.

I stayed at the Hahndorf for a night while breaking my train journey between Melbourne and Perth. Very pretty surrounds, I got lost but no fault of the motel. Although I arrived late, the owners/managers were quickly on the spot to check me in. Cosy room with excellent bathroom with spa. Easy going owners/managers, it was no hassle to check out later. Would have loved to stay another night.

The place was great with its cleanliness and all, but we were probably very unfortunate to be there on the night with a blackout. There were no lights and electricity whatsoever.

We experienced the power failure at 6pm and asked the reception for help. They said that power would be restored by 730pm, which we were fine with and went ahead with our dinner nearby. However upon returning at 9pm, it was pitch dark still!

We then phoned the reception again and they were very quick to deny all fault and said that it was the road works' fault. They said that power would be restored at 1am instead. They could have found that out earlier in the day that about the roadworks and that there would be no electricity, but they still sold us the room nonetheless! It wouldn't help matters for us to have the lights back on only after 4 hours. However, she was kind enough to suggest another motel that we could use.

Thing was, everything was dark and our luggage and belongings were all already unpacked. If she had told us that at 6pm we could have gladly moved to the motel they suggested. Plus she said that we couldn't return the following morning (which meant that we had to pack and up and leave by that night? In the dark?) And as we asked more questions, the receptionist got more impatient and didn't interested anymore. To save us both trouble, my family ended up not moving and went to sleep straightaway (after dinner, and at 930pm) in the dark and in the cold (the heater couldn't work without power too).

This might probably be an occasional thing, but the communication of the hotel ought to improve. The place was indeed pretty, but my family didn't enjoy it one bit (plus the fact that it wasn't cheap either). We could have went back to Adelaide city to get a comparable room that had power.
