Barossa Shiraz Estate is a serviced apartment.
Posted Oct 3, 2015
We had issues with the check in time which was to our horror 3.00pm-officially the latest I have ever experienced as a traveller. But when I queried the check in time with the woman at the other end of the phone (no personal service here) she told me that the check in time was clearly advertised as 3.00pm and she was right, it was. Barossa Shiraz Estate says it is a B and B but it is actually a set of serviced apartments set next to a small vineyard up from the busy main road into Lyndoch and the Barossa Valley. The apartments are clean and well appointed with a listed pack of breakfast food left for the guests in the fridge, plus bread, milk, juice and tea and coffee.There is noone on the property that a guest can interact with, everything is done by text when a guest needs to get access to keys. Before we arrived at BSE we had stayed at a beautiful B and B where our every need was catered for and I guess that we expected the same sort of experience at BSE but there is absolutely no personal touch for the guest at BSE. I am surprised it gets such a good rating on the accommodation websites as it is far from being luxury and it is grossly overpriced for what it is.
