Thank you for your feedback. We are in the process of enlarging the bathroom so this would give guests more room and we will also be placing a larger bed in the suite also. At the present time the foundations have been dug for the slab. Hopefully next time you stay all will be well. Regards Gary

Loved it, loved it, loved it.With all the amenities provided, it was even more than a home away from home. Very comfortable and great hosts. We will be staying there again, but for longer this time. Thank you for a great stay. Peter & Sue.

Excellent accommodation

Pros: Inclusions above and beyond expectations
Cons: Nothing
Location: We were there to see friends nearby but I am sure there would be a great deal to see.
The Thompson suite had everything you can and would need and more. You could actually spend the day in the suite and play pool, games, DVDs, spa and had a great time. Everything was included and the breakfast was great, highly recommend.

Lovely B&B, close centre of town

Pros: Lovely compact old world charm
Cons: Can't think of anything
Location: We were doing a course at Riverdell Spiritual Centre, which was about 8 minutes away. The aquatic centre is over the road from the B B
The proprietors had done their utmost to make our stay a wonderful experience. They had provided plenty of breakfast items for us to cook and had choices of cereals and spreads for toast. The bathroom was well stocked also. Had a wonderful time there.

B&B in Gawler, SA

Pros: Provides a friendly atmosphere, old world in an old foundry. Provides ample food for breakfast. and other treats.
Cons: Not sure
Location: Close to Roseworthy Campus, University of Adelaide. Close to the Barossa. One hour's drive from Adelaide airport.
I am a returning visitor and had stayed a couple of times before. On this occasion I arrived very tired after a delayed flight and it was very late booking in and Gary was there to show me the room. The food in the fridge and cupboards provided me with a light meal before falling into a comfortable bed. The following morning cooked a full breakfast before attending a full day at Roseworthy campus just up the road. By the time I arrived back at the room I just felt like cooking something to eat and relax in front of the telly. There are quite a few restaurants in Gawler and surrounds in the Barossa. Left early the next day. So all good. .
