Beautiful location in Adelaide Hills near historic German town of Hahndorf. Resort set in lovely park with a pond and birds to enjoy. Close enough for day trip to Kangaroo Island. Recommend day tour combined with ferry ride from Cape Jervis booked online with SeaLink. Short drive to The Gorge Wildlife Park where holding a koala is included in price of admission. Easy drive to Adelaide. Short walk to shops and restaurants in Hahndorf.
This is a lovely hotel but it is too expensive. The rooms were nearly $400 and that didn't include breakfast. Continental breakfast was about $30 and looked average. So when I asked for a flat white and was told that was "extra" I was unimpressed. When I discovered the "extra" was $4.50 I left the breakfast room. Surely for $430 a night I could get a coffee of my choice. It is the small things.
Had a great time in Hahndorf. Accommodation was clean, quiet & mostly comfortable. Found the bed a little hard & the winter chill found its way in through the gaps around the door. Could have done with a covering on all windows & curtains could be thicker. Would recommend & would go back. Good value.
Some 26 kms (16 miles) from Adelaide’s central business district, the picture-postcard farmlands and charming villages of the Adelaide Hills have inspired generations of artists. The drawcard German-heritage townships of Hahndorf and Lobethal are lined with high-quality craft shops, galleries, bakeries, restaurants, and cafes. And The Cedars historic house and working studio of iconic Australian landscape artist Sir Hans Heysen is a must-see. Other highlights include: Mount Lofty Botanic Garden, located at Crafters; Stirling village’s cafes, restaurants, boutiques, and magnificent pinoak and oak trees; Aldgate Pump Hotel (c. 1864); and Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary.
