Just spent two fantastic nights at Thorn Park by the Vines and we can't fault the experience. The accommodation was perfect and our hosts made us feel very welcome. David & Michael looked after our every need. We dined in house each evening and the food / wine was outstanding. We will return.

Same owner of Thorn Park by the Vines. The small townhouse is located right the heart of Adelaide. Close to restaurant and bars at Rundle Street. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The small unit is best equipped especially kitchen essentials with all you need as visitors. There is a cover carport that you can park your car safely... More

Our visit a year ago was so delightful we returned with friends and spent 3 days including New Years Eve with David and Michael. We had a 8 course menu with matching wines to celebrate the new year. A great menu. The food was delicious and meticulously prepared and presented. The atmosphere is so conducive to relaxing after some wine... More

I have been a TA reviewer for some years now, and I believe that Thorn Park by the Vines may be the first locale that has a perfect score - only excellent reviews. This is due to the hosts Michael and David - remarkable gentlemen providing an amazing b and b experience in the beautiful Clare Valley. Without repeating all... More

It is so difficult to praise this guest house enough. Guests have the whole house to themselves, with just a few rooms leading to a huge, open-plan kitchen area, dining room and sitting room. The communal areas are beautifully and tastefully furnished and decorated, as are the spacious bedrooms. The surrounding gardens are also extensive and well-maintained. The food was... More

It's actually been a few years since i had this great pleasure (in fact, it was at the original Thorn Park). But what a pleasure it was! The food! The style! The good humor -- hard to say whether breakfast or dinner/post-dinner was more fun! If they haven't, David & Michael should write a book and explain, to all the... More

Our stay had been booked by another couple so we did not know what to expect......This was 2 nights that we could easily have stretched if our plans had permitted. We stayed in the mocha room which is luxurious, roomy and well fitted. The bed, linens and pillows were divine. Very quiet, we enjoyed the morning ☀️. The bathroom is... More

My husband and I have just had three nights at Thorn Park by the Vines. We arrived in an exhausted state needing a peaceful respite and hoping for somewhere special and we were not disappointed. What Michael and David have created here is exceptional. At Thorn Park we were pampered with the best of everything; a bush setting, sensational food,... More

My partner and I were recently married in a small private ceremony at Thorn Park by the Vines. Our hosts, David and Michael, ensured that our entire stay was absolutely perfect from their initial suggestion of our wonderful celebrant to the superb dinners and breakfasts throughout our visit. Each of the rooms is spacious, tasteful and attractively furnished, with supremely... More

3 guys on a wine tour picked Thorn Park based on Trip Advisor reviews and pleased we did. Wonderful accommodation, superb hosts, great food - so pleased we stayed in for dinner. We were the only guests and David and Michael ended up joining us for dinner and a fair few glasses of wine. Really was like hanging out with... More
