    Great stay in a quiet location”

    Nice location, lovely views of surroundings and delicious breakfast

    Spent 2 relaxing nights at this wonderful retreat. The self-contained studios have items like kitchen supplies, coffee, tea and so much more. The bed was comfortable and enjoyable and the studio was well cleaned. The Blickinstal grounds was lovely and guests are welcome to wander around. The view from the dining area overlooking the valley was just amazing. Breakfast is served between 8-9am in the homestead, and the full cooked breakfast was delicious! Daily afternoon tea was at 4pm. Blickinstal also has 2 dogs, Lucy and Max, who are so friendly and loved playing with the guests.

    First time visitors to Barossa and we found Blickinstal to be located close to everything but tucked away enough to be a tranquil little escape. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfasts and afternoon teas were delicious and always served with a smile. Lovely accommodation with a great ambience. Highly recommend.

    The location was exquisite, relaxing and private. Sue was a wonderful host, couldn't do enough for us. The spa was fantastic and well enjoyed on several occasions.

    This was a short getaway for us, for my partner's birthday. We had an awesome time, walking the back roads of Tanunda, hiking up the steep hill to take in the panoramic views of the Barossa below. The accommodation was excellent and very clean as well as private. Sue was the perfect host, breakfast and afternoon tea was always delish. I would highly recommend this to my friends and family. Five starts, outstanding.

    Very homey and wonderfully situated within the winery. Service was very good with lovely home-made breakfast and arvo tea provided. Far enough from the town to capture the country vineyard experience but close enough to be accessible to the Barossa Valley attractions.

    very clean and comfortable

    my husband and i stayed at this b & b for one night whilst travelling through the barossa on to the clare valley. we had a very comfortable stay, the accomodation is very clean and recently renovated to include modern bathroom and kitchenette. the studios are reasonaly small however they provide everything you need for a short stay. the property is well located overlooking surrounding vineyards and is very quiet and peaceful. the owner sue is hospitable and makes an effort to be welcoming however it does not come naturally. overall we would recommend a stay here on your travels through the barossa. close to the township of tununda with some great cafes, restaurants etc.

    Surpised and Delighted!”

    Delicious home cooked breakfasts with a great view. Great size room/bathroom/kitchenette. Sue our host was so accomodating and lovely.

    We had a great weekend at Blickinstal...the type of place you could stay at and not bother exploring the surrounds. Of course we spent the days away and went out for dinner but breakfast and a rather civilised afternoon tea were not to be missed! The food was of an excellent standard and all cooked and baked by Sue and husband Mark. The room setup was great...the only problem was it was absolutely freezing while we were there and the heating struggled a little. Lots of little extras included...sweets and port in the room...a huge DVD library to choose from and of course all the home cooking...Sue even made GF muffins for us..which were great. Definitely a place we would recommend...and return to given the chance!

    location, hosts, views

    Purchased a weekend getaway here for my parents. They were delighted by the area, thought the host was down to earth, friendly and cooked a wonderful breakfast. They thought the afternoon tea was a nice bonus. I chose this place due to the great reviews and because it was reasonably priced for the Barossa. Only complaint with the venue was the bed, My Mum found it was quite firm and uncomfortable.

    Superb place to stay”

    A peaceful and beautiful place and in easy reach of all Barossa has to offer. Great views but highlights were the complimentary breakfast and tea. Arrived after midnight but no trouble locating our accommodation. All room facilities including WiFi were provided including a decanter of port. BBQ under cover was ideal for an evening meal bought at the local farmers market in Angaston and allowed an opportunity to meet other guests. Jenny the manageress gave us a great vineyard recommendation 'Tscharke' and Helen the chef made a superb brownie and banana cake for tea. I would highly recommend this accommodation.

    Peaceful getaway in the middle of wineries ”

    Quiet surroundings, garden, view of sunset

    We stayed in a studio room for one night in summer, and this was a very peaceful and memorable experience. The place is a little hard to find, but the second you drive in to the cottage you can totally unwind and relax. Got to the cottage at around 3pm after spending a whole morning/afternoon wine tasting in Barossa, and the friendly owner welcomed us with afternoon tea and homemade banana bread. They have 2 very friendly dogs on site as well, they were also very welcoming! The room was quite old but clean and well maintained, didn't have a bathtub but the bed was comfortable. Can't quite comment on food -we slept too well and missed breakfast. The sunset from the garden is a must see. Would definitely come back again!
