Ayers House is worth a visit if you have an interest in the Victorian era lifestyle. The volunteer guides are really knowledgeable and it's a beautiful old house.

Had a wonderful tour round this old house. The guide was really entertaining and knowledgable and made the tour very enjoyable. There is no charge for this tour, they just ask for a donation.

We visited Ayers House when looking round central Adelaide. Our guide was a wealth of information and the house was beautiful, particularly the ceilings and stencil work. What a pity that part of the house is a function centre and not open to viewing.

We visited the Ayers House Museum in January and really enjoyed our tour! The tour guide was very informative and explained the details about the era that the house was built in very well. As a long-term resident of South Australia I had never been to Ayers House before and knew little of the history of early Adelaide so it... More

The food was excellent and the service fantastic. My mother in law only likes sweet wine and the waiter specially found her a nice rose which was not on the menu. The menu was an individual tasting plate for entree and a tasting plate for dessert both were generous serves and delicious. The main had a choice of three, we... More

We had our wedding and reception here. The service, food, drinks were all excellent. Pricing was also very good, given the quality. However it books out a long way in advance - we had to book 18 months ahead.

We waited all day in antisapation for this tour and was a little dissapointed that we did not get to see all of it. The information talk was very interesting, and what we saw was beautiful in the way of articture and furnishings. I thought that there was more to be told but it was not on offer to me... More

A friend and I visit Ayres House last Friday as part of a Groupon deal. The guide we had was excellent both in terms of her knowledge of the house and its history and in making the group feel included. It was a very interesting insight into South Australian vistorian era history. Well worth a visit if you like historical... More
