Searching for a charming SA getaway? Say hello to Berri!
Less than three hours from Adelaide and located on the beautiful Murray River, you’ll find the attractive little town of Berri. Named after the local Aboriginal phrase ‘bery bery’ meaning ‘bend in the river’, this part of the Riverland has fast become an Adelady holiday favourite. Why? Allow me to explain…
The town is an epicurean delight, and Berri plays host to some of Australia’s largest wine production facilities, as well as a handful of smaller boutique wineries and wine producers. The beauty of Berri is that everyone supports everyone. Have a tipple at Banrock Station and chances are, they’ll insist you try five other local wineries during your stay.
On the food front, the Berri Hotel Bistro is super friendly, spacious and the perfect spot for a lazy lunch, a delicious cocktail or long dinner — even with the kids! The menu is just how we like it… fresh and fab! Expect the unexpected with gourmet pastas and mouth-watering salads, as well as all the classic pub food. I can confirm their parmies are excellent, and it’s no surprise that the bistro is award-winning. With knockout riverfront views, it’s superbly relaxing and even better, if you’re staying next door, there’s no need to drive.
The Berri Hotel has recently had a big refurb and now offers stylish and modern riverfront and poolside villas, with everything you could possibly need for a great holiday. With upstairs and downstairs accommodation available, each villa includes a kitchenette, lounge area, patio or balcony, stunning bathrooms and one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever had the pleasure of sleeping in. Just imagine waking up and opening the curtains to magnificent views of the Murray River — it doesn’t get more South Australian!
The Berri Hotel is community owned and has something for everyone, with standard, family and budget rooms available all year- round. The hotel pool and unbeatable riverfront location make it the ideal spot to base yourself while you explore the region.
And to sweeten the deal, Berri Hotel is offering you 15 percent off your accommodation booking when you use the discount code ADELADY, valid until 31 December 2023! So, grab your family and friends and beeline for Berri.
