So much more than just a motel. King rooms with full size 2 person spa, Queen, Twin & Family rooms. Cosy restaurant with open log fire during winter. Breezes Poolside dining for those balmy summer evenings. Sparkling Saltwater Pool, surrounded by sand and Guest Barbecue and Bali hut. Private scenic walking trail, set on 16 peaceful acres. Guest Lounge and Wine, Champagne & Cocktail Lounge. Close to the Riesling Trail, 15 minutes from historic Mintaro & the fascinating Martindale Hall. Just a 1 ½ hour drive to Adelaide or the Flinders Ranges.
