Barossa Motor Lodge

Reviewed 17 July 2011

It is what it is - a tired old motel desperately in need of a makeover.
There are much better places in the Barossa, and if they had had vacancies I would not have been staying here.
The aircon kept me awake all night and the tv was old and restricted to basic channels.
And there was no wifi.
On the upside the service was good, and the hotel staff quite willingly held some goods in storage for a few days which I had sent over for a conference.

Stayed 1 night on our ticky tour around south Australia. It was our 1st night in s.a. The Room was dinghy because of low energy bulbs, or to try and hide stains on sofa. Definately due for refurb. Recepionist very nice and helpful. Dinner o.k.

The motel is a bit dated but it was okay for the price we paid. It was clean and the people on reception were friendly and helpful. If you're looking for posh accommodation in the Barossa then this isn't it, but if you can put up with dated motels then this is okay. The room was quite large and parking was straight outside. My sister stayed a few months ago and she was happy with it as well.

Recently spent a week in Adelaide and surrounds and during that time spent three nights at the Barossa Motor Lodge in Tanunda. Paid more for this accommodation than other places in Adelaide and Glenelg and it was by far the poorest standard. Firstly it is located a number of kilometers from Tanunda and as for walking to wineries you would have to be joking.The standard of the rooms is fairly basic. The air conditioner sounds like an aeroplane taking off and the room is not sound proof. I could hear the children next door as well as the outside noise. The food from the restaurant was disgusting. Also i paid for wireless internet that kept droping out of service and when i told management their was no suggestion of a refund. They mentioned other people had the same problem.
The one positive thing i would say about the motor lodge is that the staff are lovely. They were very helpful when i asked for advice and were always very friendly.
However the motor lodge is over priced and presents a very average standard.
