The Vintage has that wow factor the moment you walk in. We had two lovely nights in the Library suite recently. It was a very cosy romantic setting with the fire blazing in that wonderful room, while the rain was pelting down outside. The bed was the most comfortable bed we have slept in! We were also very lucky to... More

My partner and I stay in a variety of accommodation and are prepared to pay a price, unfortunately this one doesn't come up to speed. We never saw the owners for the entire 2 days, probably good in a way but it would have been good for a quick hello and "if there is anything you need". The place is... More

It is with some difficulty I write this review as all reviews I have written have been positive. My partner and another couple stayed at the Vintage for a three night period over the New year period. We were greeted by the manager who seemed quite reasonable the first day to collect our keys. We waited until evening to see... More

I would like to thank these guests for taking the time to review The Vintage. We take great pride in our business and the presentation of both suites. The hot breakfast has been replaced by some gourmet foods including a selection of cereals, home made muesli, yogurts and milk, fresh seasonal fruits, a selection of locally baked breads, jams, orange...

The Vintage Spa Suite was the perfect spot to relax the night before our wedding and return to after a wonderful day! It was welcoming, homely, well presented, and felt like we were miles from anywhere amongst the vines! So much bigger than expected with comfy couches and big king size bed. Highly recommended for a relaxing getaway.

Excellent homely cottage. Great tranquil location in the heart of McLaren Vale. Had a great stay. Enjoyed eating breakfast in the garden and relaxing by the fire in the evening over a glass of wine. A true home from home.

We came on a Tuesday, in winter - a slow period for McLaren vale tourism, one can assume. However, we were completely ignored by this property owner. She got our apartment mixed up, left a broken wine glass in the room, off yoghurt, made no mention of the "hot breakfast" promised on the website - or of the bottle of... More

My partner and I stayed a weekend here to get away from the city for a break, and it was beautiful. The accomodation was actually two rooms plus a bathroom, whereas I thought it was only going to be the bedroom and bathroom, so I was very pleased! We spent the day wine tasting and had dinner out before coming... More

The Vintage is in a perfect location to explore the McLaren Vale. It is an absolutely stunning old home with two amazing double rooms, both with a substantial lounge room (each with a fire place). My wife and two adult daughters utilised both rooms (they were interconnecting) and it was like having a large house to ourselves. The beds (with... More

The Vintage is in an old homestead, about 2 kms from McLaren Vale town centre. It is a very pretty property with lovely views over the nearby vineyards. My husband and I recently spent 2 nights in The Library suite. It is a lovely spacious room with lots of nice touches such as a leather chaise we wanted to take... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights in the Spa Suite over the Easter holidays. We had a nice stay but were disappointed by a few things. I appreciate it is an old building but it is looking very tired in the Spa Suite and in need of some TLC. There were some nice touches such as a bottle of... More
