My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon recently, and were blown away by the quality of this place. A lovely garden, sublime views of the hills at the back, bountiful and beautiful food, accessible yet totally secluded - we honestly could not have wanted for more. Thoroughly recommended!

My fiance and I have just returned from 8 wonderful days spent at Hillgrove House. We had driven down to SA to attend the Tour Down Under and my fiance had not really seen what I had booked until we arrived....."WOW" was his first reaction before we had even got in the front door. I had expectations but they were... More

My partner and I stayed at Hillgrove House for our 4 year anniversary on the 6th, 7th and 8th of January after my sister and I sent our parents there as a surprise gift earlier in the year. They couldn't praise it enough and so I wanted to see for myself. Despite my high expectations I was not disappointed! Meg... More

My husband and I stayed at Hillgrove house i and we couldn't fault it. Well stocked with local produce, comfortable king bed, lovely big spa bath, cosy fire, lovely gardens and a view to melt away all cares - perfect for recharging those batteries!

My Wife and I found this wonderful B&B via a search for Pet Friendly acommodation, and what a delight it turned out to be! We stayed in Waratah Cottage and it was just perfect for the two of us and our little English Staffy "Harper". The location is secluded and tranquil, the views are spectacular, the cottage is wonderfully cosy,... More

Thank you so much for your great review, and thank you also for being such considerate guests. The Adelaide Hills are certainly beautiful, especially at this time of year, and the yummy local produce really can't be beaten.. (I'm sure our guests leave a kilo or two heavier!)

Our teenage daughters gave us a weekend holiday at Hillgrove House as a gift - what a treat! We went right at the end of winter, so everything was lush and green, and cool enough for log fires at night, but were blessed with warm days and sunshine, perfect for lounging in the comfortable adirondack chairs on the front lawn...

We never met the owners of this self-contained establishment, but from the moment we arrived we felt welcome and as if we had stepped into a loved home. The personal touches including the birthday cake and candles made us feel so special. We could not fault the quality of the appliances and the quantity and quality of the food provisions... More

We decided to take a winter mini break up in the Hills, hoping to find a quaint, picuresque location where we could retreat inside and cosy up with an open fireplace. Even better that we could take our family (2 dogs) with us! We sure got a great weekend... freezing temperatures, hail, heavy rain and even snow at one point!... More
