Hahndorf Motel
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Hahndorf
Reviewed November 6, 2011

Spent two night in room 1. Location in centre of town is good. Large room. Large bathroom. All the normal stuff in good working order - kettle, hair drier, air cond, larger than normal bar fridge, small wall mounted flat screen TV, freestanding wardrobe. Bathroom had a spa bath that doubles as the shower, and a heater/light/fan. Room was clean, though light colored carpet was showing its age. Communication with the owner was a pleasant and positive experience.
No window or skylight in bathroom which made it gloomy. No screen or curtain around spa bath meant floor unavoidably got wet.
Very squeaky bed.
Hahndorf wakes up late - with no breakfast at Zorros, you have to look elsewhere. Ghost town before 7:30am. If you need car fuel the garage doesn't open till 9am.

We had a fantastic 2 nights in Hahndorf recently made all the better by Lisa at Zorro's. The room was magnificent, sparkling clean, very homely with the heater going on our arrival, huge bathroom with all the facilities needed including heaters, good kitchen facilities, plenty of room for relaxing with lounge chair and her caring service and bubbly personality made it even better. A ramp up to the first floor rooms making it very easy for access and undercover parking is available. A little creek flows behind the rooms adding country charm. Would certainly recommend Zorro's for anyone wanting to stay in the Adelaide Hills as it is very central in the town of Hahndorf which is very central to the entire region. Thank you Lisa.

Room Tip: The spa suite is great value for money and has great character- loved it!

The room was freezing with a totally ineffective, extremely noisy airconditioner/heater.
The bed was sooooo cold couldnt warm up, no electric blankets, put two extra blankets on and a cardigan! And the bed mattress definitely needed replacing!
Our room number three - needed a total refurbish - carpet - paint - new linen etc - there was no where to put our luggage.
The lighting was very poor, low wattage bulbs when they were working, and the bed side lamps had blown bulbs - when this was discovered it was too late to get replacements.
The room was not very clean (though the bathroom was clean - but again the lightning was pathetic)
All in all very disappointing - we should have and most definitely will in future read 'tripadvisor' before booking anywhere.
When I mentioned the above 'complaints' (very politely) it was like talking to a brick wall!
Do not book at Zorros!

A very disappointing stay, the room was very aged, no iron, the heater had to be turned off as it had an ominous rattle and the squeakiest mattress ever! Great location on main street but wouldnt stay here again, service was abrupt also

We were very happy with our accommodation in a standard room. Beds were comfortable and the room was large. Good size bathroom and shower. No complaints with the room at all. Location couldn't be better. Unfortunately we visited Hahndorf on a Tuesday and Wednesday which is when a lot of the shops close and most of the restaurants. This is something we didn't know in advance and would have reorganised our itinerary if we did. So avoid Hahndorf on those days. Also most of the eating places attached to the wineries only open from Thursday to Sunday.

we had 2 spa rooms, and while they were different, they were both beautiful. I especially liked the gas stove in ours. we spent 2 nights and fell in love with Handhorff. We wanted to start our Australia vacation with somewhere quiet, and off the beaten path. This place was perfect. Zorros was in a great location and we prepared breakfast in our rooms (great bread from the German bakery accross the street) and had one meal that we cooked and one excellent meal at the German Arms hotel. It was off season when we were there, but all the people in the stores, etc, were very friendly and helpful. Loved all the little wine cellars and wished we had more time to visit some wineries. Would recommend a few days here to unwind for anyone and would stay at Zorros again too.

The spa suite was fully self contained and was perfect for our romantic night away. The motel is situated right in the middle of town and was a perfect retreat after much german food and beer. We'll be back for sure.
