Accommodation Clare - Clare Valley Motel

Clare South Australia

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. As a result of the floods this year, Lake Eyre is expected to fill, a once in a decade phenomenon that is a sight not to be missed.

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!
