We loved our three nights here, staying as part of a package that included two full days of touring, seeing kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and sea lions, plus many bird species. Lyn and Graham are gracious hosts, and both dinners and breakfasts were extraordinary. And one night Graham took us on a night drive on the farm. Our third day was... More

Our three day stay at the Stranraer Homestead was one of the highlights of our 8 week journey. From the time we were picked up at the airport by Dale from Exceptional Kangaroo Island to the time Dale dropped us off three full days later, we were fed gourmet breakfasts and dinners by Lyn, given private tours and great information...

This B and B serves delicious home cooked breakfasts and evening meals. Heritage accommodation was clean and comfortable. Good to talk to other guests at meal times and an evening safari to see the local wildlife comes as part of the stay. Owners clearly love what they do and are experienced hosts who will provide all the information you need... More

Wonderful people, in a wonderful setting, topped with great food. This is absolutely one of the best places we've stayed. The history of the building and the family that owns it was very interesting. Unfortuneately the weather was lousy while we were there, so we didn't get a tour of the farm. Our room was large, and decorated with antiques.... More

These splendid hosts in their delightful home made us feel very welcome. Not only was our room perfect, but the food was excellent. Don't even think of not talking up the dinner option as Lyn is a great cook. She is so great, I bought the book!

This is in a wonderful rural position. As you drive in the first thing you notice is the Stranraer Cricket Club. Yes they have their own cricket club and Botham has played there! The house itself feels very historic and our room had everything you could wish for. Dinner was served round the lovely dining table with fantastic Australian wines.... More

The reviews are all so good that you wonder if they are genuine, but I am totally confident that they are. This is a superb, comfortable house, full of character, professionally run but friendly. Every detail imaginable is attended to. The website suggests dinner is optional or by arrangement. In practice there's nowhere else to go unless you are going... More

If you are visiting Kangaroo Island, don't miss staying at Stranraer, It is just magic - the place gets into your soul. The photo on their web site DOES NOT do this place justice. It is beautiful and charming. Your hosts, Lyn and Graham, are remarkable people who make you feel like part of their family. The food is divine... More

We stayed three nights with Lyn and Graham in their lovely, beautifully decorated home. Upon arriving in the evening after dinner time, Lyn prepared a filling, delicious, tray of home made goodies, and hot tea in front of a roaring fireplace---most welcome as we never had a chance to eat beforehand. Our entire stay was perfect from day one! Graham... More

My visit to Kangaroo Island on 12 October - 14 October was enhanced with my stay at a 5 star Bed & Breakfast - Stranraer Homestead. Lynne and Graham could not have been more hospitable or more accommodating! As someone traveling alone, it was a treat to be provided 5 star treatment in my accommodations/ meals and to partake in...
