I needed a few days retreat away from the pressures and stresses of work, and a change of scenery from the arid lands, and this place was perfect. Magnificent views overlooking the mighty Murray River, peaceful, well equipped, lovely & comfy bed, and that spa.......aaaaaaaahhhhhhh! All in the perfect location for a couple of easy day trips exploring the beauty of this area.
It was absolutely brilliant with plenty of space, quiet and just what we were after. It is within easy waking distance to shops, cafes, the motor museum and the Hotel. It was set back from the main road which allowed plenty of peace and quiet. The balcony for the room was great.
The town is not far from other towns that are worth the trouble to explore.
The hotel was a great location able to walk around quite easily. Very Noisy when trains went threw. Had to turn the hot water on ten minutes or more before getting hot water because of the age of the hotel.
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.
Mannum is a small, river-centric town based in South Australia, based off the Murray River. It is fundamentally a town that revolves around the river-boating trade, and in recent years, has become a hot spot for tourist looking to escape into a historic and romantic part of Australian culture. It is also known as the river-boating capital of Australia. In the late 1800's, Mannum became the birth place of Murray River boating and became, as in the modern day, central to their economy.Mannum has a number of activities available for tourists, including boating, an annual hot-rod show, the Crystal and Craft fair and the popular Christmas event.
