“Uniquely retro, comfortable and quiet , this is the best spot in the Barossa”

This place has everything, 50's and 60's decor, record players, pin ball machine etc etc. beautifully appointed and maintained, 2 car under cover parking, 2 ensuite bedrooms. A magnificent spa in the main bath room. Absolutely modern yet retro.

The 1960's record player comes with lots of records.

Full kitchen facilities which we used.

Beds very comfortable.

The red lounge suite is amazing and comfortable.

And free wi fi!

Quiet and comfortable, well positioned in the Barossa Valley, we just did not want to leave!

The only down side was a small amount of noise from a pump when someone is using water.

The first night, owners Jannine and Mark invited us into their museum garage for drinks and nibbles. It is full of amazing stuff. They are great hosts, hospitable and helpful.

Great attention to detail.

Four flat screen tv's !

This is a place to visit, will be a great talking point and I am sure many of of friends will be visiting, as will we again in the future.

I have stayed in many places and this ranks amongst the best.

Would recommend this to anyone

Jannine and Mark have created something very, very special. The 50's themed décor, the quality furnishings and finish of the unit and its size and comfort together with the welcoming music set this place apart. We would recommend it to everyone, and have begun to do so. We just loved our getaway at Old Garage B&B.

“Another fantastic stay in the Barossa Valley”

I have travelled to the Barossa Valley several times both for business and leisure. I have stayed in a few different properties in the area, here in Nuriootpa and in Tanunda.

This is the third or fourth time that I have stayed at the Old Garage, and it's just as great as always.

The owners Jannine and Mark have always made me feel more than welcome, and the unique accommodation is of the highest quality.

I cant recommend it enough - although I may be shooting myself in the foot if too many people find out about this hidden treasure!
