Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I only spent the one night at the Motel and found it to be excellent. The room was exceptionally clean and sound proofing from other rooms. Or maybe other guests were very quiet :-).
I had a balcony room which was spacious and well equipped. A very nice touch was a Nespresso machine and coffee pods. Not you horrible little sachets of burnt instant coffee.
The motel’s location is in the lovely little village of Birdwood which has it’s very own treasures, but also ready access to many Adelaide hills attractions.
Beats staying in the city.

The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable and a very good size with balcony (room5). The bed was the best we’ve ever stayed in at a motel. The kitchenette was well equipped with tea/ coffee making facilities. The spa bath was luxurious with complimentary toiletries and even bath salts. The motel was very quiet.
The only thing I could say was that the shower wasn’t very powerful. However, we would definitely recommend this motel

This lived up to the photos and reviews. A boutique hotel with just a few rooms. Check in and out we’re flawlessly easy. Spa and king bed, and a verandah where we could enjoy the birdsong. Only criticism is that if you miss the one window for the room to be made up during the day (at about 10 in the morning) it won’t be, so as sleeper-inners our room was not serviced for the 3 days. But it was clean, comfortable and cozy, so really loved it.

So close to giving 5/5

This motel is in a lovely setting,great sized room, with Spa bath, great sized bed, 50" TV, balcony and well equiped kitchenette.

Need to revise their checkin process as apparently advise guests of self check in by text message. People regularly change their phone number, or like us, when travelling buy a local sim. As a result we were left waiting to check in for 30 minutes before some other guests arrived and contacted the staff, on a different number to the one shown on the booking and the motel window. I have to say that the staff were very friendly and helpful after that. The other, minor, irritation is the fire exit sign in the room, I appreciate that the may need one but does the light on it need to be so powerful. It's like leaving the main light on all night.

First class room. Attention to detail apparent in the little touches. Friendly and considerate hostess. Very conveniently located adjacent Birdwood Mill and opposite the hotel. We really enjoyed our stay in this quiet sanctuary. Excellent

We stayed in the cottage, as we had two couples (the cottage caters for six). Couldn’t fault anything, walking distance to all facilities and so comfortable. Great friendly staff were very accommodating. Already booked our next trip.

Excellent room and great staff. Fantastic location next to the National Motor Museum.
I cannot praise the room enough. The photos do not do it justice, and the photos are good!
Good communication about check in etc. The only problem is that I'll now expect this from all motels that I stay in!

My stay at the Birdwood Motel could not have been more pleasant. Very easy self check in and check out process, good communication, and the owner was super friendly. The room itself was incredibly spacious and very clean. The kitchenette had everything you needed for a short stay. Definitely would stay here again and also recommend this to others.
