“Fantastic location”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Driving down seppeltfield road. We stopped at some log cabins. Met the new owners that have refurbished the cabins. Lovely young couple with kids starting a new venture. Great location fantastic views and great value for money.
Really family friendly. We will be back

They say first impressions matter and it's true, they do. Our hopes were high as we drove up Seppeltsfield road with the old Barossa vines and the palms lining the road, looking out for the place we drove past it, the sign is faded and overgrown. So turn around and up the driveway to the main house that serves as the reception and we started having doubts. The grass and gardens are overgrown and there's scrap steel and old cars all over the place.

So we found the bloke we needed to find and he walked us up to our cabin, be warned the driveway is rutted and washed out. There is also a large step-up onto the concrete drains. The Forester did it but I'd be really careful with a Commodore or anything smaller or lower.

We were let into the room and the bloke started going through everything with us and basically he doesn't care what you do, even encouraged trying to hit the roof with the spa jets. Oh and the Breakfast part of the deal is he gives you the ingredients and you cook it yourself, nice idea except the room smells of bacon after.

The Room its self. It looks like each cabin has 2 rooms in it and you get;

Kitchen area, Fridge, sink, cupboards, kettle, and portable hotplate.

Bed with Clock radio built into the head

TV with is big enough for the size of the room but the fact you need to fiddle with it for it to work properly is a bit off putting

Sauna, Didn't use, Didn't want to, no light in there to see what you're doing and no instructions for use either.

Bathroom, The chipboard that made up the vanity unit was swollen from moisture and going mouldy. The shower head is above the spa and with no curtain of any kind the whole bathroom gets wet and it's not a small step from the bath to the floor either. And the box next to the spa is just the pump cover so don't try to stand on it.

Front screen door was sticking closed and very difficult to open at times.



Some of the units had towels and sheets up in the windows and it was just generally a bit of a hole in what is one of Australia's biggest Tourist hotspots. It wasn't cheap and we thought maybe we were expecting too much but our thoughts were confirmed when a local told us that the previous owners had burst into tears upon seeing the state of the place.
