A lovely clean hotel with all amenities required for our stay. Room service food arrived promptly, but was cold. Difficult to get into the restaurant, and no priority given to hotel guests. No assistance offered in carrying luggage up stairs to room. Hotel is child friendly. Depending on your needs this could be a positive or negative. Hotel were helpful in ordering taxi to wineries. A shuttle service would be beneficial for a hotel of this nature. Hotel had good fitness / gym area and the pool was nice. Overall a comfortable stay, but very expensive for the offerings.

Tony Families - 10/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Novotel Barossa was perfect for what we needed over the new year period with good size apartment, a pool and pool side bar, in the heart of the Barossa.

Dear Tony, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Barossa Valley Resort. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. Thanks for sharing your experience at the Pool Bar, I am sorry it was so confusing. I can't think of a good reason as to why you couldn't order your meals and have them delivered to the Pool Bar and will liaise with our Food & Beverage Manager to see why we can't do this. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one.

Spa Package Stay, Overall Good Experience

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Alyse Couples - 09/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed in a superior king suite as part of the spa package over wall we had a lovely stay. The rooms have been modernised, they were clean and comfortable. Housekeeping were very accommodating in providing additional pillows at your choice via a pillow menu to create the creature comforts for your stay. We had dinner the first night in the restaurant, the service from the wait staff was great very pleasant to speak with and timely on service and clean up I had the chicken which was well cooked and tasty my partner had the pork which overall was flavoursome however overcooked when we mentioned this to the waitress she was apologetic and we were happy with her response. Breakfast included was also tasty and accommodated to a variety of dietary requirements. One of the negatives was a strong septic or sewerage smell that was apparent on the exterior of rooms approx 248 and above this smell was very overpowering and moved into the rooms on various occasions and was apparent as soon as you step out of your car. This was not obvious 24/7 however when it was it was unpleasant. The endota inclusion was great, they had us set up in a combined room and customised the massage to suit us both creating a calming experience. All in all we would recommend the Novotel to family and friends and enjoyed our stay.

Dear Alyse, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Barossa Valley Resort. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback.

As expected

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Reviewer Couples - 08/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel room and service was lovely. Staff were very friendly. No door on the shower meant that the bathroom floor was saturated. The reflective glass on the bathroom window was see through with the light on inside the bathroom. Breakfast was as nice as any other hotel breakfast. Dinner service was very slow and when we received our meals they were subpar to say the least. The lamb was over cooked and lacked flavour. The steak was very unevenly cooked. Well done on one end and blue on the other. Had much higher expectations after waiting an hour to receive meals.

nicklyn2018 27/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Very friendly and helpful staff, large well maintained rooms with great views, and you in the middle of one the best wines regions on the planet. Wine tasting in this area is a good experience with most places offering platters of locally produced meats and cheeses and the hotel is a great place to come back to after a day of visiting wineries.

We are very lucky to have such creative Cellar Doors in the Barossa!

Lovely and peaceful

Awesome rooms and a great layout. Staff were very helpful. A welcome place of luxury after a long trip across the Nullarbor with great facilities. Nothing was a problem for the staff to assist with. My fourth stay at this property, always nice to come back to.

Congratulations on crossing the Nullarbor! So pleased our standards and service levels have been maintained on every stay.

The location was great. The restaurant was fantastic with great food and wonderful service. The wine was delicious and the service fantastic. Whilst there, I went to the ladies, and fell on the wet floor. The prompt attention was great, and the staff checked up the next day to make sure that I was still OK. We will certainly return :):)

Relaxing short break

Alan P 19/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Having stayed here before, we knew the location and surrounding views were lovely and peaceful. Whilst this stay was only for 2 nights, our 1 bedroom apartment was modern and comfortable. We had dinner both nights at their restaurant (food is of a high quality) with ample choice. Also enjoyed breakfast both mornings with plenty of variety (even under Covid buffet restrictions). All staff were friendly and polite.

Jack H 22/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Excellent from when you walk into reception to the room then the restaurant. Sarah and the team certainly look after you. Dianne, Sam and the team at breakfast are always there to look after you. Rageet the restaurant manager is very knowledgeable having traveled the world and working in the industry and doesn’t forget your name explains the menu with a professional manner. My wife tripped and hurt her knee we went to reception and Megan looked after her getting an ice pack and asked the next night how is your knee.

Poor experience

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

brettstaker 29/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

We stayed 1 night at a cost of $249. The restaurant menu had no prices, when asked was told everything was $41except the Ossobuco which was $45. On top of this, if we wanted veges or anything else it was another $12 each, which makes the price of a meal very expensive. The room was a king room that didn't even have complementary water. The coffee was Nescafe in sachets. I would have though at least pod coffee given this is supposed to be high end accommodation site. The toilet ran all night, so much for maintenance. And only 1 tissue in the tissue box. So much for house keeping.

I am sorry we did not meet your expectations. I have passed on your feedback to our team in the restaurant & housekeeping. They will be very disappointed to hear about your experience.
