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

My very first stay with Michael and David and it certainly will not be my last. I echo other reviews - it is absolutely perfect. Perfect hosts, serene surroundings, rooms that are beautifully decorated and peaceful - every detail is attended to. Then you come to the food, wine and service. The food at Thorn Park is equal to the... More

David and Michael made us feel like honoured guests in their home a wonderful ambiance with an unbelievable attention to detail. Freshly prepared food with matching wines equivalent to dining in a 5 star restaurant. My husband and I with our 2 friends had a truly wonderful experience. It was lovely to just sit and read in the beautifully decorated... More

If you're looking for luxury combined with a beautifully peaceful and serene setting looking no further than Thorn Park by the Vines. Having stayed at the original Thorn Park, I was looking forward to visiting David and Michael again at their new Thorn Park as I had no doubt it would be wonderful. Needless to say we were not disappointed,... More

My husband recently had a significant birthday so where to celebrate not too far from Adelaide? Thorn Park of course. We had not visited the" new" Thorn Park and were delighted that the care and attention is the same, if not better! David and Michael made John's celebrations special. G & T's on the verandah overlooking the vineyards after a... More

Our first visit to the NEW Thorn Park, and just like their previous establishment David and Michael made our time with them a wonderful experience. Their welcoming hospitality and the fact that everything has been thought of to make our time with them so easy and comfortable made our two nights a tremendous experience. The food is absolutely super with... More

This is a truly amazing place. Starting with our hosts, Michael and David, who made us feel that we were part of their family who had just dropped by for a couple of nights. If only family would look after us this well! The facilities are superb, from the huge bedroom with a really comfortable bed and one of the... More

David and Michael welcomed us into their delightful establishment with the warmth and generosity that was the hallmark of our stay. Super comfortable facilities, classy furniture and fittings and fabulous food made our stay a real delight. The purpose built facility nestles amongst the gums and overlooks the vineyard and rewards the guest with a peaceful outlook to enjoy after... More

Staying with Michael and David is like staying with old and dear friends in their gracious and elegant home. We first stayed with them 28 years ago and, if anything, this time was even better than the first. Food superb, excellent wines (probably too much!) and charming, warm hospitality. "The Boys" as they are universally referred to in the Valley,... More
