The Dove Cote
Ranked #6 of 15 Tanunda B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 February 2015

We had an amazing time staying for 2 nights at the Dove Cote, and I wish it was longer!
We stayed at the Studio, and despite being right at the front of the cottage, it felt very private and cozy.
Every little thing in this place is thoroughly thought through. The fridge was fool off breakfast supplies for any taste, all fresh local produce. There is a side exit from the studio to the cozy back yard, with BBQ and outside furniture. There were fruit on the table, heart-shaped chocolates and a bottle of home made amazing wine.
The bed was very comfy, the sheets and towels - fresh and soft. There is a Jacuzzi in the bathroom.
The place was extremely cozy and had a very home feel. It has a lot of character in it, and that is definitely the type you want to stay at when you visiting a place like Barossa!
Thank you for our great experience! We will definitely stay at the Dove Cote again our next time in the Barossa!

Room Tip: There is no reception, you have to call up in advance for access code to get the key.

Stayed in the rear unit in December 2014, the food provisions are plentiful and varied.
The rear garden area is well kept and inviting and the undercover parking (for the rear unit only) was a bonus.
All the amenities were of a high standard while the only points lost would be for the cleanliness.
There was a considerable amount of dust on the ceiling sweeper fan in the living area and on the ceiling and upper wall areas ( if you can picture it, it has a loft upstairs).
In addition the return air vents for the 2 x reverse cycle air conditioners were effected by similar.
A good clean would remedy this.
Overall, we were very happy with the quality and would stay there again.

Room Tip: The rear unit is possibly more spacious for couples

We stayed here over the weekend & also went site seeing in the Barossa Valley. We found the Dove Cote amazing, with a beautiful setting & it had everything to make you feel relaxed. So homely, there's no other place we would rather have stayed at. If you are looking to relax, go stay at The Dove Cote. We also sat down & took the time to read the visitors diary. So many people from all walks of life left messages in the diary. We will be back next year :)

We stayed in the cottage for 3 nights and found it wonderful. The location was great, walking distance to lots of restaurants, cafes and shops. The breakfast provisions were adjusted to suit our food intolerances with no complaint or extra charge. I would definitely recommend the cottage for a couple who want to "Do the Barossa"

Just stayed at the cottage with another couple. Good Location and the cottage is fairly comfortable but poor value compared to other accomodation in the area. Every sound transfers from the upstairs bedroom to the house and bedroom below and it is far from private or convenient to share a single partially onsuite bathroom.

Room Tip: This is a single cottage and I'd check out other property in the area.
