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

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
