Centrally located in an Aussie retreat style accommodation. The grounds were beautiful with lots of different birds. Accommodation was spacious and well maintained. Pool is nice but pool furniture needs updating. Additional pool shade recommended.

Response from SMVManagement, Manager at Serafino McLaren Vale

Dear jp1313_13 We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay. As soon as the maintenance issue was reported to us we had someone attend to fix. Unfortunately, as is sometimes the case, the issue was more serious and unable to be fixed to a satisfactory level until the next day when parts could be obtained. After speaking with you and apologising for the circumstances outside of our control, our reception team quickly arranged for you to be able to move to another room, as we understood you required access prior to going out for dinner within the half hour. Our endeavour is always to attend to guests needs quickly and satisfactorily, it is a shame you felt we were not attentive in this instance. Warm regards Serafino Team

I also suggest contacting the hotel and asking about transport options. I don't think there is much in the way of public transport in the area.
