Accommodation Clare - Clare Valley Motel

Clare South Australia

Kwong Photos High Res.jpg

The Clare Valley Motel is located on top of the hill, on the Adelaide side, as you approach Clare. We are 1.5 kilometres from the centre of Clare, close enough to town, but set back from the road and away from the hustle and bustle of the traffic.

It is an easy 90 minute drive from Adelaide with the Flinders Ranges just 90 minutes to the north. This makes Clare an ideal stop over on the way to, or from, the Flinders Ranges and Lake Eyre.

Even though the Clare Valley is renowned as one of Australia's premiere wine growing districts, the township of Clare has retained its relaxed country charm. The air is pure, the countryside is pristine and the stars are magnificent!

Come and experience our near outback at its very best!
