Our room was a bit old fashioned but fairly spacious and clean. No complimentary body lotion or shower cap just a small tablet of soap. The bathroom was separate from the toilet both reasonably clean. Had a really nice evening meal in the main dining area - reasonable price. Our hosts were friendly and made interesting conversation. Had to drive...

Stayed here for 2 nights for work - If we had not prepaid I would have moved out. From the rude "school teacher" reception lady when booking in and things just got worse. Decor has not been updated since the '70 and nor has the bed from the springs poking up under a dirty foam at on. The bathroom doors...

I wasn't expecting too much for the price and proximity to the shops of Tanunda. Fine for a one night stay. The aircon was very noisy (was about 35-40C so really needed it running through the night). The toilet and shower layout reminded me of a Caravan Park setup (chopped doors and toilet on one side and shower on the...

We booked only a few days before and were pleasantly surprised to find a vacancy. The room was clean if a little old fashioned but comfortable. Plenty of room anyway. The pool was also clean and very enjoyable on a hot afternoon in summer. Not far to some great restaurants in the middle of Tanunda.

We needed an overnight stop whilst visiting friends. The lady who took our booking was courteous and when we checked in the gentleman on the desk was friendly & efficient. The room was comfortable and clean. We appreciated the free wifi. We'd stay there again if the need arises.

We recently had an enjoyable stay at the lodge. It's everything that it's described to be. The bed was comfortable and the AC worked well (it was very hot outside). I mixed up our arrival dates by arriving a day early but Jeff was very accommodating in amending the booking with no fuss. Unfortunately, a major storm that might left...

Stayed 3 nights. Very spacious and quite well maintained room. Well priced. Restaurant was very competitively priced and pretty jolly good meals and great wine choices. Wifi in the room was sporadic. Was good while it worked, but kept dropping out.

Exceeded expectations for a budget motel. 70's style fittings in good order, bonus was solid brick walls, offset layout, undercover parking complete with vines all giving a very quiet setting. In-house meal was tasty and great value; local wines $6 a glass!

We stayed for one night while visiting the wineries in the region. Cheap budget accommodation. Although in need of an update the room was comfortable enough, but the lady on reception offered terrible customer service. Working in the accommodation industry myself I was appalled at her rudeness, abruptness and lack of eye contact. When we checked in she said all...

Been to Tanunda many times in the past and never stayed at the Motor Lodge. Always looks impressive as you drive past with the long rows of solid brick attached units with equally impressive long row of carport. Each room has room for the car right at the door. A rare opportunity these days where allotments are smaller and land...
