We stayed at the old telegraph B &B for a romantic getaway and it was awesome. Beautifully renovated cottage with lovely wood features. Two bedrooms with big comfortable beds (with electric blankets for winter). Generous breakfast provisions and very private. Pay tv and Internet provided (although not unlimited so good for browsing not streaming). The shower was nice and hot...not...

My boyfriend and i stayed here for a mid week get away in the Barossa. The cottage was surprisingly bigger on the inside than you think its going to be by just looking on the outside. The cottage has an amazingly huge bathroom with a very relaxing spa bath. We enjoyed all provisions for breakfast, the wine and port was...

Thanks for the review. Greenock is just a small village and even though the cottage is in the main street I'm glad you found that the traffic is not an issue. It really is a quiet town. Looking forward to welcoming you back anytime you are in the Barossa.

Looks exactly as on the pictures. A charming little cottage with lots of old world charm and a lovely garden you can sit in for a bbq. Immaculately clean with quality towels, linens etc and everything you could possibly need, including some little extras. Sue does everything possible to make sure you have a good stay - she even left...

We consider it very important that the images we post online reflect what our cottage actually looks like. I'm pleased to hear you appreciated that. We don't want guests to have any surprises - except the occasional lamington cake!

There are a lot of B&B's around the valley but the best thing about the old telegraph station is that it is sole occupancy so you have the entire property to yourself. Travelling with kids in tow this can be important! There are two bedrooms. If you are in the front bedroom you may notice the road noise as the...

A beautiful cottage in the main street of Greenock. Generous breakfast provisions, comfortable beds, an open fire and a complimentary bottle of wine. Close to some fantastic wineries. We had a fantastic stay - would love to return.

Birthday Treat from my family of a short stay at the Old Telegraph Station and visits to some of the local wineries. A delightful and extremely comfortable property (the beds were particularly comfortable) and the wood fire was most welcome during our cold but sunny visit. Excellent location for visiting all the main sites of the Barossa and (if you...

We have stayed at this lovely little property twice this year. The first time it was warmer so we enjoyed the outside BBQ and lovely enclosed gardens. The second was in cooler weather so we utilised the wood fire in the lounge and large spa bath. Both times we felt at ease and pampered as soon as we arrived. There...

This was a last minute booking and I was intrigued to stay in a place with some history. We were delighted with what we found when we opened the door - a gorgeous cottage with everything that we needed. We slept in the Queen bedroom and had no noise issues and it was a very comfortable sleep. The step-by-step instructions...
