“Great location and spacious rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed for one night as part of training course. Very friendly and accommodating staff and good setting, just set back from main street in Hahndorf. Room overlooking main courtyard was spacious and comfortable. The linked restaurant over the road called the Haus was also good for a German style dinner and great beers.

Stayed August 2014, travelled on business

Whilst the Manna is very centrally located it was hard to find in the busy Hahndorf street.
Parking is a problem especially for those who choose the larger rooms. So while our room was small, parking was outside the door as long as you didn't go out at night. We felt sorry for those arriving late, having to find somewhere to park and then having to carry cases a distance in the rain.
The Haus restaurant across the road was very good.

Hello Barbara,

Thank you for choosing to stay at The Manna of Hahndorf and for dining at our restaurant The Haus cafe+bar+kitchen. It is great to hear you enjoyed yourself. We do have two main room types, one that has parking directly outside and one that does not as to cater for all walks of life as some do not like the outlook of the car park.
Hahndorf becomes this buzzing beacon of people on the weekend and we recommend that people park where they can and when you check-in with the team on the front desk we will point out the driveway to the parking. Between both the cars and the pedestrians the driveway can be hard to find.
We do have a new property called The Haus Studio Apartments which are self-catering units and offer a little extra space if that is what you are after. If you do come by this way again we highly recommend you give these a try. Plus they have wall jets in the shower!

We appreciate your feed back and for sharing your Hahndorf experience on Trip Advisor. Take Care.

I could have been staying anywhere in the world, I wouldn't have known, all I could see was straight into 2 rooms opposite, and corridors, similar too a rabbit warren. You stay in a beautiful historic town and expect some sort of vista. I felt that claustrophobic, in and out of the room, I offered to pay to upgrade to something where it didn't feel as though I were in prison, there was nothing they could do to help. Even if you wanted to sit outside your room and try and catch some sun and fresh air, there was no seating. Inside was clean, which I would expect for the price, the bathroom tiny, shower head tiny, badly set out and a the shower recess a tripping hazard when you walked in the bathroom. The pillows were rocks with pillow slips on them. This is supposed to be rated highly, and priced accordingly, I could have stayed in an apartment on the beach with views for less money. Not to mention, every time you open the door you get hit in the head with a plastic rod that opens the curtains, although why you would open them I don't know, not to mention getting locked out at 11pm as my card stopped working and reception wasn't opened. Overall an absolute nightmare.

Room Tip: Don't stay in one!

Dear Fred,

We are disappointed that you left with a negative experience of your stay with us. The Manna of Hahndorf is a Motel in the Main Street of Hahndorf which does mean that the outlook is not that of rolling hills and the country landscape. We do not advertise or promote that our rooms contain a view or that they have outdoor seating. If we have in any way mislead you we are sincerely apologetic as this was not our intention. I do believe that upon your request to change rooms our Guest Services Team provided you with three alternatives although you declined the offer. As we were fully-booked with all but these rooms checked in our options were limited. If there were more vacant rooms we would perhaps been able to rectify the situation.

Thank you for your feedback we are sincerely sorry your stay with us was not memorable.

Lovely modern renovated accomodation, clean and roomy.
Great access to main street of Hahndorf, very central.
We did book being a Friday night, but on arrival in Hahndorf found plenty of vacancies and competitive prices. Although being winter probable made a difference.

Hi Suzi,

Thank you for your Trip Advisor Review. We are so pleased you liked our perfectly positioned motel in Hahndorf and that you enjoyed our modern and clean rooms. The Manna of Hahndorf is so convenient being set back off the Main Street as you are only a stone throw away from all the Restaurants, Cafe's and Boutique Shops! We hope that you are not all shopped out though so you can come back and visit again. See you soon!

Our family group of two older parents (late 70's) and my sister and I chose to stay two nights in Hahndorf as a base to explore the hills and Barossa from. We booked an Executive room and a superior. The Executive was larger with a larger flat screen TV and a lounge chair. Both rooms were very comfortable and modern, nothing dated here. We were so pleased with the Manna, as the location was so central for walking everywhere, and it had enough character/style to be attractive. The staff were very nice. A bonus of the hotel was free WIFI, something other hotels could do well to follow. It was extremely cold while we were there, and the Manna was well heated. We thought our plan to stay in Hahndorf turned out to be a great choice, as there was lots to do, and many restaurants to choose from for meals. The Haas cafe across the road was particularly fab for not only coffee etc but great food for evening meals. So convenient too. We had a hire car and drove across to the Barossa one day, visiting Maggie Beer's Farm Shop which was another highlight. Along with our two days in Adelaide going to the football at the revamped Adelaide oval, we had a top 'long weekend' in Adelaide - just perfect.

Room Tip: We had one Executive and one superior room. We were very happy with both rooms, and probably didn...

recently stayed 3 nights in a medium priced room and found it wonderful. It's got to be one of the best located places to stay in Hahndorf. lt was great to walk out of my room and be on the main street in 30 seconds, 2 min. walk to the Supermarket , bakery etc. Everything's right there in the middle of Hahndorf & great not having to move the car...so stress free and fun. l found the room to be updated, very clean, very quiet, good value & the staff helpful accommodating my last minute changes, l would definitely stay again & will recommend the Manna to friends. A previous review mentioned the uncomfortable pillows, l found this also (luckily l travel with my own pillow), one of a couple of small niggles amongst a fabulous time spent in Hahndorf.

Very lovely room, including a microwave. Shower was large but the shower head was small and made for a rather uncomfortable shower. The beds were nice and comfy but the pillows were very flat, requiring two pillows to sleep comfortably. Just little things to whinge about but was overall impressed with my stay.
