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

Modern, beautiful house in quiet bush surrounds. Large bedrooms, immaculately clean. The property is a short walk from the Riesling trail, which takes you in one direction (5.2ks) to Clair, and the other to more wineries. Hosts Michael and David are really lovely. Food was fantastic. There are 3 bedrooms so full house means 6 people around the breakfast table.... More

Enjoyed a short break, with my husband, in this beautiful, luxury accommodation surrounded by enchanting, rural views. From the moment you enter until the moment you leave Michael and David entertain you like old friends. The breakfast and dinner was elegantly presented and everything tasted amazing. I would highly recommend Thorn Park to anyone looking to spoil themselves with a... More

We stayed at the original Thorn Park some years ago and returned to the Claire and the new Thorn Park with some friends. It is stunning - the attention to detail is amazing. The new house is gorgeous - full of beautiful antiques, paintings and books. The rooms are lovely, very comfortable with all you need and great en suite... More

All the superlatives have already been used. This place is absolutely wonderful. There is a beautiful mixture of lovely antiques, combined with all modern amenities needed in the bedrooms and the living areas. Michael and David are welcoming and charming hosts. We had 2 dinners there and the food (by chef David) was sensational, ably supported by Michael in a... More

Exceptional hospitality, ambience and food to die for. Love love. David and Michael made us feel so at home in luscious lounges, bedrooms and an open fire. Could not wish for more except time to read all their books. Easy distance to Clare wineries and good advice for other restaurants. Wanted to stay longer. xxx

We cannot recommend more highly staying at the gracious Thorn Park in the Vines. Our room, one of three, called Mocha, was very comfortable, spacious and tasteful. The bathroom was well equipped and sleek. The living and dining room, heated by a cosy fire are elegant with an interesting variety of Australian art works adorning the walls. However, perhaps the...

It is difficult to come up with any new superlatives to describe Thorn Park, whether one considers it a small boutique hotel or a super upscale B&B. It is about as close to perfection as you will come. Every detail has been carefully considered, supplied for your comfort, and then meticulously maintained. Having said that about the facilities, the highlight... More

This is a gem hidden away in the vineyard area of Clare, so surrounded by good food and wine at the nearby wineries. None of then match the food and hospitality at Thorn Park. David and Michael are the perfect hosts , so attentive and up for plenty of laughs if that is your want. Facilities are top class, beautifully... More
