A very tired looking motel in deseparate need of some TLC. On the positive side, the bed was comfortable and the swimming pool was great. But, the infestation of ants was unacceptable. When my husband went to the office to advise of the situation, he was handed a dust buster and told that it doesn't work very well. On returning...

Peaceful hilltop property with well appointed rooms. We had a beautiful view in a Valley View King Spa Room, but even those with rooms set further back can enjoy a drink overlooking the pool or in the barbecue area. Make sure to visit the alpacas, and say hi to Ted, the motel dog. The owners are lovely and made us...

We had one of the Queen rooms and stayed over Easter. Small, pokey room and the cleaners never vacuumed while we were there. Good location but we preferred the comfort inn further down the road we stayed in previously.

We were visiting Australia for work and holiday. Our trip to Clare was our last experience to relax and enjoy the countryside. We were so happy with our choice to book the Clare Valley Motel for 3 nights. The personnel were nice, helpful, friendly and accommodating. We got a complimentary upgrade, had 3 wonderful breakfasts and enjoyed 2 evening meals...

We stayed here for 3 nights while we explored the Clare Valley and the Barossa Valley. Our room was very good and clean. We ate in the restaurant one evening which we enjoyed, the food was good and the staff very friendly. The grounds are well kept, the alpacas welcoming you as you arrive. There is a lovely swimming pool...

The property is on the main road , but well back in an elevated position , thus quiet with a great view. The rooms are spacious , and our room had a very comfortable king bed, and the bathroom had both a separate shower and a spa. Breakfast is in a pleasant corner room , good quality and well presented...

Dear Geoff It was a pleasure to see you and Felicity again - this time in Clare, South Australia. Clare is also a beautiful and unique part of Australia - quite different to the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. We are so glad that you ventured down here to explore and sample some of the local produce. The Clare Valley is...
