Where to get a decent night’s kip in (and around) the Adelaide Hills town?
Nothing beats a holiday, especially when the planning is done and dusted. From short breaks, overnight stays, family getaways, and the kind of break you don’t want to leave the property (or bedroom); we’ve done the hard work for you.
The Haus Studio Apartments include 14 self-contained hideaways on the town’s main drag. The one or two bedroom apartments have all the mod cons and a self-catering kitchen with a two-stove cook top, microwave, toaster, refrigerator and kettle. Or, if you’d rather eat out, The Haus Restaurant is right next door. There’s complimentary wireless for internet and social media-obsessed guests. It’s crisp, clean, comfy, modern, and the ‘take one, leave one’ book collection is a nice touch, too. “Very modern and clean… [there’s] also an outdoor courtyard where you can have a picnic while you appreciate the well-groomed garden. A rejuvenating getaway,” says Sharon K from New Jersey on TripAdvisor.

On a Budget
The Lodge by Haus is a no frills, clean, tidy option for visitors on a budget. The location is central so exploring can be done on foot and there’s a choice of motel rooms or self-contained apartments with self-catering facilities. A solar heated, undercover pool makes it a perfect holiday winner. The Lodge by Haus has 19 self-contained apartments with either one or two bedrooms (go for one of four poolside options) or a three-bedroom Rustic Retreat cottage option with a fully fitted kitchen and an open-plan living room (great for playing Cards of Humanity). It doesn’t cost the world which means more cash left over for local wine and distillery visits.

There are 51 rooms (superior, executive, and indulgence spa suites) to choose from at The Manna by Haus, the latter comes with a balcony and spa. Bookings can be made for one or more nights and the location is right on the main street with easy parking, so it’s a great spot to stay if you’re passing through town. Wifi is complimentary and if you need it, conference and meeting facilities are available, too.

The Traditional Touch
Is there anything more calming than the sound of a creek bubbling through the Adelaide Hills? That’s what you get at The Hahndorf Old Mill. It’s all a bit like visiting Europe (minus the air miles). Think Austrian-style chalets with spas and mezzanine floors. The motel accommodation is located to the rear of the historic stone hotel which serves up German beer, live music and a buffet full of German grub. Check out the heritage 100-year-old pear tree in the car park.

Grab the fam bam and head to Discovery Parks Hahndorf Resort for a mini break that won’t send you into debt. There’s a couple of options for larger groups; the Resort House fits eight people and the Lakeview House sleeps up to 10. The caravan park is newly renovated and the 13-hectare property leaves plenty of space to breathe. There’s a swimming pool, mini golf, a playground, a giant chess set, outdoor jumping cushion, brilliant shared kitchen and barbecue facilities.

Just Passing Through
Hahndorf Oak Tree Cottages are a top option for people who want to hide from the world for a short but sweet time. There are six to choose from, each with a deluxe queen-sized bed and en-suite. Two LCD televisions, a DVD player and complimentary wireless internet keep guests entertained, or if you prefer the great outdoors, take a stroll down the main street or kick back on the verandah (each pad has one). Hosts are Sue and Greg Brown are always happy to help. Rooms are serviced daily and there’s 24-hour check-in.
