Very nice and pleasant place to stay, staff are very friendly, daily breakfast and afternoon tea was exquisite. My only suggestion would be to purchase new mattresses as they are a little outdated otherwise would stay again.

Our cabin was comfortable and in the back tier of two tiers of cottages, which meant we were higher up the hillside with a pleasant view when we sat on the porch. Birds were busy in the surrounding trees and the vineyards could be seen to one side. The breakfasts and afternoon teas were served in the main building and...

Great location, rural setting amongst the vines very relaxing. Not within walking distance but only 10-15 drive to everything. Jenny is a nice host and the breakfast was great especially the fruit compote with yoghurt. We really liked that the rooms were separate to the main house.

After looking on trip advisor for this retreat, I found amazing reviews for Blickinstal! However me and my family were very disappointed to find that the management had been handed over. The accommodation was very sweet however needed a touch up, everything felt worn out. Our shower didn't work properly and we received no wifi or internet with no explanation...

My wife and I visited Blickinstal in the beautiful Barossa Valley after a trip through the Adelaide Hills. What a wonderful day and our stay at Blikinstal topped it off superbly. On arrival, Jenny provided us with afternoon tea. We went into town for dinner and then we watched the sun set over the hills outside our room. Today we...

I'll start by saying what a great location this is, nestled on the edge of a hill with a lovely westward view overlooking the Barossa it's hard not to take a few minutes in the afternoon sitting on the garden bench with beverage in hand taking in the peaceful surroundings and glorious sunset. You can even see the sun reflecting...

Spent 2 nights here exploring the local area. It's very well situated and nothing in the Barossa is more than a 20min drive, and usually closer. Staff were friendly and helpful, accommodation was clean and well serviced. Rates are reasonable. Worth considering for a weekend getaway on a budget

Blickenstall is a Barossa icon, with a 40 year history of offering great accommodation with great hosts. We stayed in the block of two apartment style cottages. They are well fitted out and comfortable, but there is no longer any personal touch. The gardens/grounds have been let go, the casual seats on the veranda looked welcoming, but so dirty and...

Part of the reason I choose a specific property has to do with the people who host us and knowledge of the local scene.  With so many choices in the  Barossa Valley, that insider perspective is like gold. Unfortunately it seems this property has changed hands and lost that local touch.   We asked for help with dinner reservations, none was...
