We got the last room here and were apologised to because it was a bit smaller than others, but it was absolutely fine. It was down the hill a bit, I think in an older block, but had recently been renovated and was very comfortable and pleasant. It had a big window, admittedly onto the carpark, but the whole place...

We stayed at the Clare Valley Motel for one night in November and enjoyed a pleasant stay. The motel is situated up the hill in peaceful surroundings away from the traffic noise. Patrick who checked us in was friendly and efficient and explained to us everything we needed to know about the motel. We were given one of the older...

Thank you for staying with us. We are fortunate to be set on 16 acres of natural surroundings along with magnificent rose gardens overlooking the beautiful Clare Valley. You may even get to see a kangaroo or two, yet only a 2 minute drive into town. We do have an excellent restaurant on site for dinner or breakfast. All the...

Thank you for your review. We do try to provide that little bit extra, including coffee pod machine, microwaves in rooms along with a modern décor. All our beds have pillow tops and a selection of pillows to ensure a comfy sleep. Cleanliness is a priority along with a friendly smile! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

WiFi very weak and sporadic, slow to the point of being useless if many units are occupied - get a unit very near office if you want usable reception at all. They are advertising free WiFi, but this doesn't qualify, in my opinion. Shocking TV reception with pixelation and distorted sound on most channels. Units are quiet and nicely furnished,...

In regards to the TV reception, we do receive signal from Adelaide as well as Pt Pirie - you were tuned into the Adelaide channel and when our duty...

We were only able to get a budget room as we booked on the go. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and tidy and comfortable and parking at the door. Used the onsite restaurant where we enjoyed an open fire (it was wet and cold) and excellent food and were looked after very well.

Functional, clean, reasonably comfortable but lacking in any warmth from any staff. We might have eaten here had anybody engaged with us, but had low expectations from the experience of check in. Perfectly ok though.

A group of us from Melbourne stayed here for five nights in varying units, we had a good time and found the units well maintained and comfortable. The television reception not good at times otherwise very good. Breakfasts good and friendly service. The evening meal on the last night a bit disappointing the fish meal very oily.
