- Views for AllThis is a lovely hotel that made a point to give every room a balcony overlooking the Barossa Valley. From free wine tasting each evening to a large outdoor… pool, creature comforts were well taken care of. The room was equipped with a mini bar fridge, microwave, sink, and dishes; useful for picking up delicacies at the local stores for a balcony picnic. Restaurant was great both for the breakfast buffet and dinner. It's a perfect location for exploring the many wineries in the area. The only thing keeping it from a higher score was the $150 charge for a 15 minute phone call stateside to fix my partners credit card. That's just seems excessive in this age of cheap phone and Internet service. Left a bad taste upon leaving, but I won't let that bias me from all the things going extremely well there. Definitely stay at this hotel. Just don't use the phone;)
- Best in the BarossaWe had been on the road some 6,000km before we arrived at the Novotel Barossa Valley and all I can say is that they were the saviour to a relatively horrific… experience of sub standard motels and so called resorts along our way. Apart from this establishment and one other Accor property, I would recommend any International traveller to be careful and pick and choose the place you are staying at ... What a delight to get a marvellous room, squeaky clean, excellent staff service and value for money. I have never rated a property so far in my travels as excellent and we have stayed all over the world... yet this place is excellent
