Hi, thank you for staying with us. We try to minimise contact with our guests for Covid safety. That's why we would make the check in process contact free. We would definitely improve on the aspects you mentioned.

The lodge was wonderful. A great use of space made it feel welcoming and comfortable; great bathroom and bedroom fittings, and the setting was just perfect.

Have taken note and will make the beds up with a second woollen blanket during colder months.

Barossa Valley's Blickinstal B&B

Pros: The Lodge/Cottage was well set out more for families. I did like the 'afternoon tea' touch at 4pm each day with coffee & cake or Devonshire Tea.
Cons: TV remote control in our Lodge/Cottage didn't work properly & bed was not real good. We found the mattress too thin. Carrie very apologetic.
Location: Location is wonderful looking down over the grapevines into the Valley below & Tanunda only about 10 mins drive.
Yes, I would certainly recommend this property but not for senior people like ourselves we did find staying in the Lodge/Cottage room was very steep (for us anyway) and my husband had to drive down to the main area because he couldn't handle the steep incline. If one is fit and able, certainly go for it with my blessing. You have to be a Mountain Goat to get to your room. We were surprised to see that we were booked into the Lodge/Cottage with Sofer bed made up as well which we didn't require OR request. There was a misunderstanding here on behalf of the booking agency and myself as we only wanted to be booked in beside our friends in a Verandah Room. Spa we didn't need as too awkward& dangerous for us that's why we didn't look twice at this room but we only looked at the rooms along verandah. We were also charged full rate which was also a shock to me too. Not sure if Jenny the Asian lady really understood but very obliging at same time overall Helen the B'fast cook was welcoming with wonderful personality as was Carrie who was also excellent with good communication. B'fast was a little ordinary with no fresh or tinned fruit or prunes but what we got was enough. I do hope that other guests don't fall into this misunderstanding as we did.
