Make no mistake; this is motel accommodation. It is nicely appointed motel accommodation, but it is motel accommodation.
If you are a light sleeper take earplugs or make sure you are not in one of the rooms alongside the driveway. Between being woken by housekeeping, or 6.30am leaf blowers, the noise of every coming and going from their rooms, dropping of glass bottles into the bins behind the shop in front we barely slept. On the upside, you can walk for most of Hahndorf's offerings and there are some very good eateries and cute shops nearby.
The Three Gums café/restaurant serves beautiful food. Their staff are enthusiastic, good with kiddies too, we noticed. The cabins are motel room quality, scrupulously clean. There is a pool and lots to amuse families. Comfortable beds and strong showers. The $100 returnable bond can be tricky if leaving early on Sundays as reception opens then at 9.30, earlier on other days. However, the well natured manager came with me to return the money. I wish him well with his wonderful resort.
This was exactly what we were looking for, right in the centre of Main Street....with Hahndorf's charm right on our doorstep! Plenty to see and do and no shortage of choices for food! Loved our brief stay.....I would aim to stay here for my next visit too!
"Much needed relaxing getaway in beautiful gardens."
Peaceful, relaxing, beautiful room, lovely views and a short walk to the middle of everything. Our hosts were excellent: gave us clear directions about how to get there late at night after our planes were delayed, and even offered to collect us from the airport. And when we arrived everything was ready for us to come in, relax and unwind - including an excellent selection of Teas and Coffee, some tasty local treats, and some much appreciated local Port. Having the 'breakfast basket' already in the room made it very easy to have a relaxing breakfast at the time that suited us - and after a late arrival the night before, with the peace and quiet, we'd slept through much of the morning! And when we did open the curtains, the views across the fields were only interrupted by lots of colourful galahs, lorikeets and other birds.

Hahndorf is the oldest surviving German settlement in Australia and the Central European influence of its early inhabitants continues to thrive in this pretty Adelaide Hills town. Located just twenty minutes from the South Australian capital our Hahndorf accommodation lies at the entrance to the beautiful Adelaide Hills region, making it the perfect base for exploring the whole area.
Hahndorf’s picturesque streets are lined with leafy maple trees, providing shade in the warmer months, and a colourful show as they change colour in the lead-up to winter. Behind the trees you will find charming old buildings filled with scents of German bakeries and deli’s. As a backdrop for your much deserved holiday, you can’t get much better than what surrounds our Hahndorf hotels!
The landscape of rolling hillsides and sprawling green fields of fresh Hahndorf produce have proven an inspiration for the arty crowd, and spawned the Hahndorf Academy. Dedicated to arts, craft and the heritage of the region, the academy is a must-see during your stay in a Hahndorf hotel, with four galleries, a history museum and art classes to discover and enjoy.
