“Nice place to stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

We stayed one night here after a trip to the Clare Valley. It was clean and comfortable and quiet which was a surprise as it was full. It is a typical motel but some effort has been made to update the rooms. The room was large, but the TV was small and reception was a bit patchy. The bathroom was clean. Check in was smooth. It was only a short walk to the center of Burra where there were a few places to eat and some lovely little gift shops. We paid $126.00 for the night which I felt was a little high.

We stayed in this motel with other family members on our way back to Adelaide.
It was clean and comfortable but a little bit overpriced for what it is.
No restaurant on site but we were given information about restaurants around Burra where we could eat.
There is an indoor pool which we did not use.
The view from the unit along the creek line was nice as was the visit from a number of ducks the next day.
We would stay here again as the options in Burra seem limited.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

We stayed for one night on our return from The Flinders Ranges to Adelaide. Not attractive from the outside as you enter, but inside the rooms appear to have been refurbished recently. Everything is clean and neat and the rooms are large, well-equipped and well-stocked. The owners were extremely helpful.

We thought that the price was a little high, but didn’t realise that there was a large festival on in the area at the time – usually they’re lower.

When we booked it was advertised as having a restaurant on site. The owners explained that this had already closed when they recently purchased the property. They had decided that it was not worth trying to compete with the various nearby eateries, and instead gave us a comprehensive rundown on all of them, many of which are within a few minutes walk.

The only small complaint would be that the aircon unit was old and a bit noisy, although effective. It might be difficult to sleep with it on in very hot weather.
