Incredible food; cozy room; wonderful hosts. At night, walk 100 yards out the front door, and there is not a light to be seen. A fantastic stay.

Graham met my wife and I at the airport, as our flight was running a bit late, and lead us to the homestead. We paused to see kangaroos in the paddocks. Lyn introduced us to our room and took our dinner order. Our dinner was superb and conversation from our fellow travelers was fun. Breakfast the next morning was amazing.... More

Well, it seems somewhat silly to write this review, after reading all the other excellent reviews! All I can say is that the other reviews are SPOT ON! This is positively the nicest place I've every stayed and my husband and I travel very frequently. The warmth, the facility, the surroundings and most of all, the hosts and the food... More

We stayed at the Stranraer Homestead during the Kangaroo Island leg of our planned and guided tour of Australia. This is a beautiful home, built in the early 20th century and located on a vast farmland owned for generations by the owners' grandfather. Mr. Stranraer farms sheep and helps in running the homestead. Lyn (Mrs. S) is a retired Home... More

i agree with everything said by the previous reviewers, this place truly is a delight and the food quite excellent. However, you may wonder why we stopped short of an overall rating of excellent. We were on a tour and, when realising we were going to run about half an hour late, had the operator call Stranraer and advise our... More

We were booked into the Stranraer Homestead as part of our quick trip to Kangaroo Island. After a long day of touring we arrived at this amazing Australian homestead. The room was comfortable and inviting and the common rooms filled with authentic family heirlooms. Lynn prepared a fantastic dinner and breakfast. After dinner our host, Graham provided the nocturnal tour,... More

Who would have thought that this little place on Kangaroo Island could be such an absolute gem . The attention to detail , the food, the warmth and the atmosphere is quite simply as good as you will ever get anywhere. Lyn and Graham are just outstanding people and operators.

Lyn and Graham make you feel so much at home that it is a shame when you have to leave. The meals are a highlight (amazing food and so fresh) and we agree with other reviews that you need to go on a diet (having spent three nights there). The peace and quiet at the farm are very relaxing and... More

We spent 2 nights At Stranraer Homestead on a 2 week trip to Australia. We didn't know what to expect and were amazed at the Stranraer. Lyn and Graham are wonderful hosts. The rooms, each with their own fireplace were quaint and the beds were exremely comfortable. The first morning we were there, my wife and I went for a... More

We stumbled upon Stranraer Homestead quite by luck and what a break that was! Stranraer is in the middle Kangaroo Island and is, in fact, located on a working sheep farm (if you can call 3000 acres a farm!). After a hard day of touring the island in a bit of blustery weather we were ready to settle in for... More
