Lovely accommodation and breakfast left in room. The only thing i can say, and its not a complaint, is that the tv should be on the wall opposite the bed so you can watch the tv at night time while snuggled up in bed

The site is ideal for friends and families wishing to socialise in BBQ evenings and admire scenic rural sunrise sunset views. Great accommodation easy access to Barossa places of interest. Good value overall.

We really enjoyed our stay - the self check in was a breeze, and our room (No 6) was comfortable and had everything we needed, including breakfast provisions of eggs, bread, tomatoes, juice and cereal. Our room was very clean, and well equipped. The property itself was peaceful, and pretty to wander around. We would definitely recommend a stay at Blickinstal!

My wife and I had a lovely rainy romantic weekend away in this secluded spot. The units are a bit 1980's but are quite honestly delightful, well designed and quite spacious. The bedroom, bathroom, loungeroom and kitchenette are superb. Access into Tanunda is via a couple of back roads but easy o navigate. All in all we had a lovely weekend away.

Spent 2 nights here with friends over New Year’s Eve 21/22. Great location 10 minutes drive from Tanunda. Was very hot on first day but AC worked well. Location amongst shady trees also helped. Breakfast of bacon, eggs, juice, toast also provided was great.

Room Tip: If planning on food being delivered, forget it. Is too far out of town. But is only a 10 minute...

Positive From the moment you book, there was an active email communication with Christina (Manager running Blickinstal). She was very attentive and made our accommodation very special. The studio was very spacious, and the bed was super comfortable. The self-contained studio has everything you need for a short or a long stay. Guests can use all facilities available in the retreat, and also the fresh produces. Wi-fi is not bad either. The accommodation provides free breakfast (continental and hot breakfast) with fresh eggs, bacon bought on the day, fresh tomatoes, bread, butter/jam and fresh milk. Christina left us a beautiful bottle of red wine from Blickinstal winery on our last day. Negative None TIP As you drive out from the Blickinstal retreat, turn to your left (opposite direction of Tanunda) and drive up for 2 kms, you will reach a lookout on the hill where you can park the car, and take fantastic photos of the Barossa Valley. The view from there is amazing.

We have come to the Barossa for a three night stay. We have a studio unit, one of a group of six. ‘Studio’ sounds fancy, but it is really a 3* motel unit placed out in a beautiful country setting! We arrive and find the key in a locked box as instructed, and easily locate our unit. Uncovered car parking is a short walk from the unit. The setting is attractive with the front windows looking out over lawns and trees. Not however, the valley of vines shown in the advertising! This is an older unit with dated decor: dark stained timber ceiling, and darkish freckled cream brick walls. There is carpet on the floor. The main room is a good size and has a comfortable queen bed with electric blankets, side tables, a sofa, and a wardrobe which is not really usable - the door only half opens. There is a flat screen TV which can be seen from the sofa but not the bed. There are no table and chairs, so we are unable to play our board game! There are nice pictures on the walls and a small sculpture of musical angels. There is an air conditioner which has trouble keeping the unit warm (even when set on 30 degrees). (Admittedly we had a record cold night. The invisible Christina does provide a welcome second heater on our request; this keeps the unit snug.) The wifi is fast. There is a shortage of accessible power points for charging devices - a necessity these days. The en-suite is attractive with separated toilet, vanity and enjoyable shower, but a sliding door which does not slide freely. No heating: a heat lamp in this area would be most welcome. The kitchen is badly designed with fridge, sink microwave, toaster and jug, but no stove or hot plate. It has a cramped entry and a high cupboard which is likely to cause injury. There is an inadequately sized breakfast bar. There is no room service over our stay. On the positive side there is a good supply of soaps, shampoos etc, an adequate continental breakfast in the room, and a bottle of wine! The setting means the unit is absolutely quiet, especially as we seem to be the only guests! We are just a few kilometres from the township of Tanunda - quite handy by car. In summary, this is a pleasant place to stay, but in comparison with many others we have stayed in, one which hasn’t come up to my expectations.

Tucked away an a lovely hillside is this perfect retreat, ideal for a few days or more in the Barossa. We had a studio cottage, fine for a couple; there are other options. This was gorgeous, and the sunsets lovely. Set amongst the trees and above the vines there are great little walks and it is only minutes to favourite wineries such as Bethany or Turkey Flat. Whilst it wasn't explained to us that there would be no welcome on site, the key lock procedure was no problem, although it was a bit bizarre when one of the other tourists become agitated because he had insufficient bacon and eggs for his 4 day stay. As we had no eggs/bacon at all, we were just surprised. Breakfast was a bit light on, but we had been touring SA and had our own anyway, so no problem. Although there was no housekeeping on our stay, it was rather nice being left to our own devices. It was spotless inside the studio and very comfortable. We would love to come back for a longer stay.

Unofficial lookout, drive 100m up the road with picnic in tote. We climbed over the fence and walked up the hill to have an absolutely beautiful view, all to ourselves. (There was a note in the guest book that we could walk around their entire property). Absolutely stunning view from the fire pit area, do yourself a favour and make sure to watch the sunset from down the front. Just beautiful. We found the rooms to be perfect for us. Beds comfortable enough, wifi was great, shower pressure was great and the fact that we were the only guests the first night we stayed there was quite amazing. It was so peaceful. Helen was lovely, we briefly met her and she had the room all lit up and the heater on for us so it was quite toasty when we got in. Great location and a super romantic cosy place to go.

This “retreat” has sadly changed a lot since the previous reviews. No hot breakfast or afternoon tea. Rooms run down and dusty, not made-up or cleaned in the 3 days we stayed there. Property not maintained. The only good thing is the location which is very convenient for exploring nearby towns and wineries.
