It's quiet, wonderful and away from it all - yet still within striking distance of major Barossa wineries! We travelled here after a hectic couple of days in Sydney and we loved it - the view was wonderful and the grounds are amazing. We stayed right across from the reception and the room was terrific (with all the goodies including...

The Blickinstal property is exactly what you would imagine a wine country B&B would be. The rooms are terrific, and they are stocked with all kinds of goodies, including a bottle of port for a night cap after a day of tastings. The location is out of the way, but not difficult to access. This allows for the greatest feature...

We really enjoyed our stay here. It is very picturesque and peaceful. The rooms were very well appointed with everything you could possibly need including a kitchenette with milk in the fridge, little bowls of chocolate and some port. The bathroom was clean and was equipped with a jacuzzi. I loved the breakfast prepared by Sue every morning. She is...

Thank you to Sue and Peter. Sue your breakfasts are the best!!! We loved your farm and found our stay to be truly relaxing. The sunset we caught yesterday was sensational. Our accommodation was tidy and thoughtful. Loved that our chocolate supply was topped up daily.

We selected Blickinstal from Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. although further out of town than anticipated, it is only a short 5 minute drive to Tanunda and as it is set on the slope of the hills, the setting offers views of the vines and the valley toward the town. We were picked up by Barossa House Tours...

Our group of 8 have just returned from Blickinstal after spending our usual two nights in the Barossa. We were again impressed with the hospitality which began with a friendly welcome, continued with afternoon teas and completed with excellent breakfasts. Set a few kilometres from Tanunda but surrounded by wineries the retreat is a delight. The views over the vineyards...

We stayed at Blickinstal for 2 nights and really wished we had booked in longer. The Barossa Valley is so beautiful and I loved the wineries. Blickinstal made our stay that much better. We were so pleased with the spacious well appointed unit. The little kitchen is so nicely done as is the bathroom. In fact the whole unit is...

The room was the only thing lovely about this place. We arrived (albeit a few hours earlier than official check-in...we were planning to ask to drop our stuff and come back) and encountered the innkeeper pulling out of the driveway as we were pulling in. She stopped and rolled down her window and asked if we were guests. When we...

We had a wonderful 4 night stay and everyday enjoyed the panoramic valley views from the dining room. Poetic pastoral scenes, with sun drenched fields followed by morning showers sweeping through the Barossa were quite breathtaking. Great central location to wineries, breakfasts were wholesome, authentic and tasty and afternoon teas decadent. Thanks so much Sue, we will certainly be back...

This was the heaven after 28 hours of traveling hell. A great retreat from the madness, the Studio rooms were superb and Sue's breakfasts were scrumptious. While the weather was against us at times, the ammenities in the surrounding areas and access to the wineries and nature trails were what made made the break from the rat race. A pity...
