“FABULOUS EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I've read all the other reviews on this accommodation and wonder what I can add that others haven't already spoken of in glowing terms, but in case you've been asleep, here goes. This is the BEST accommodation in the Barossa. It is unique, beautifully planned and maintained and run by 2 of the nicest and most hospitable and helpful people you could ever meet. The retro style is fun with touches of luxury everywhere, including an amazing spa with room for your champagne and a tv to watch as you enjoy the bubbles-both kinds!
They have just started a wine tour - Barossa Cruisin' in their comfortable air conditioned vehicle during which Mark will accommodate your preferences or design a trip which you will love-especially the Chateau Tanunda and a lovely platter lunch at Schild Cellar door.

“Absolutely Awesome”

Our weekend at the "Old Garage" was a gift from our kids and upon arrival we pulled up at what a appeared to be a large shed. Upon entering we were totally blown away by an amazing space which was fitted out with 50's style decor and an atmosphere enhanced by classic 50's tunes playing in the background. It was like stepping back in time to our youth. You could tell that our hosts Janine and Mark had a passion for this era which was reflected in their attention to detail in this absolute gem of a B&B. Huge living area, 2 bedrooms and massive bathroom with spa was immaculate throughout. If you are visiting the Barossa and want a unique experience you won't be disappointed in the "Old Garage".......Warning: the pinball machine is addictive!,

I've stayed at the Barossa Old Garage BNB four times now and I am compelled to write a review as this place is amazing!

The cleanliness and attention to detail with first quality fittings and 60's Happy Days feel is something I have never experienced before. I stay in a lot of hotels, as a matter of fact I am in one as I write, and I cannot rate the Old Garage more highly. The owners Jannine and Mark are super-friendly and knowledgeable of the area as the love the Barossa Valley. They really know how to look after their guests and even did something special when I mentioned I don't drink tea or coffee they popped some quality hot chocolate in the kitchen for me.

I am grateful they chose to share their years of memorabilia as the room is an incredible testament to years of passionate collecting of retro and 60's items - even a muscle car!

Trust me this place is a must to stay if you want to be looked after somewhere really, really special.

“Uniquely retro, comfortable and quiet , this is the best spot in the Barossa”

This place has everything, 50's and 60's decor, record players, pin ball machine etc etc. beautifully appointed and maintained, 2 car under cover parking, 2 ensuite bedrooms. A magnificent spa in the main bath room. Absolutely modern yet retro.

The 1960's record player comes with lots of records.

Full kitchen facilities which we used.

Beds very comfortable.

The red lounge suite is amazing and comfortable.

And free wi fi!

Quiet and comfortable, well positioned in the Barossa Valley, we just did not want to leave!

The only down side was a small amount of noise from a pump when someone is using water.

The first night, owners Jannine and Mark invited us into their museum garage for drinks and nibbles. It is full of amazing stuff. They are great hosts, hospitable and helpful.

Great attention to detail.

Four flat screen tv's !

This is a place to visit, will be a great talking point and I am sure many of of friends will be visiting, as will we again in the future.

I have stayed in many places and this ranks amongst the best.

Would recommend this to anyone

Jannine and Mark have created something very, very special. The 50's themed décor, the quality furnishings and finish of the unit and its size and comfort together with the welcoming music set this place apart. We would recommend it to everyone, and have begun to do so. We just loved our getaway at Old Garage B&B.
