This was a clean, comfortable and friendly b and b with adequate heating in the bedrooms and access to a comfortable lounge area with a wood burner. We were there a very cold weekend in July. There were two excellent restaurant s within walking distance. Cooked breakfast was well presented with fresh eggs from the owners chooks. Would recommend.

Great little B&B. Alan and Carol are great hosts. We really enjoyed our stay and will return next time we make it to Mclaren Vale. The location is perfect! Just off the main road and central to all restaurants and wineries. Yes, the rooms are old style but this is a nice change to all the modern jagged edged hotels... More

Our stay was welcoming with both Carol and Allan being very informative and genial hosts. Breakfast and location excellent. Lovely outdoor area for those wishing to relax after their day touring. Electric blankets on beds which can be necessary as the nights can get quite cool.

Alan was a perfect host. We had a great time and felt comfortable in this venue! The breakfast was to die for!!!! The Japanese Spitz was an unexpected bargain. We will be back next time we visit this region!

Wonderful visit and great hosts (Carol and Allan) - marvelous breakfast and a very nice room for a B&B in Australia at the price point. The location is great! Make sure you ask Allan about the chickens.

Cosy B&B in a good location right at the end of the town area of Mclaren Vale, yet delightful quiet and out of the way. We stayed in an ensuite room with a queen size bed and a small living area. Room and house decor was mostly done up English country style, which was dated but romantic-in-a-way. A delicious cooked... More

We've been at Southern BB only one night, but we were very welcomed by Alan. The place is very cozy, room was super clean and comfortable, with a nice grandmas house decoration. Room had TV, toiletries; bathroom was good, spacious with good shower. Heating system was more than efficient - we had a very comfortable night, quiet. No kitchen to... More

Carol and Allan make you feel at home from the moment you walk in the door. We stayed two nights and it was very very comfortable, and as we left we felt like it was leaving some new friends. They are wonderful hosts, who are genuine and do many small things to make you feel relaxed and at ease. Each... More

This was our first stay at a hosted B&B and we loved it! Allan and Carol were in the garden to greet us when we arrived. They showed us to our room, asked what time we would like our breakfast and left us to get ready for our night out. We had the room at the end of the house... More

My husband and I stayed at Southern Vales March 9th and 10th to attend a wedding at McLaren Flat at the Current Shed. It has three bedrooms in a very comfortable house on 2 acres, so has no traffic noise. Allan, the owner was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. He cooked us a delicious breakfast in the...
