Just returned from a lovely weekend at Serafino Winery feeling all refreshed and itching to go back. Beautiful tranquil gardens with the gorgeous ducks walking freely around. Accommodation was very comfortable and clean and as for the dinner and breakfast in the restaurant superb. It is definitely a place worth going to even though it is hard to leave. As... More

I have stayed at Serafino's (formerly McLaren's on the lake) several times over the years whilst on business in the area. A peaceful lakeside setting with lots of water birds close to most winery cellar doors. The rooms are spacious located in several annexes in and around the gardens. Serafino's has its own winery and cellar door (try the Serafino... More

My husband & I have just spent a most enjoyable night here on the weekend. The motel room was very clean & tidy. There was a sink in the room & the usual coffee, tea & kettle were provided. It was also nice that there were wine glasses & bottle openers available in the room. The only reason I wouldn't... More

Sue, thank you for staying with us at Serafino McLaren Vale. We are very fortunate to have a setting amongst the old gum trees, it’s a pretty special place. We have started a soft re-furbish in the rooms and will continue with it after the wedding season. We look forward to having you stay again. More

The food, wine and restaurant setting was "OUTSTANDING". I ordered the Fillet Crusted with Peanuts salmon, that i absolutely enjoyed, followed by a delicious dessert of, yellow peach pana... More

My wife and I recently spent a night at Serafino Winery and were compelled to share the beautiful experience with the rest of the world. Their quality wines are stunning and some of the best in the country but it was the attention to detail and the feeling that we were a part of the Serafino family that won us... More

Beautiful setting, excellent wines, first rate food and wonderful service. A relaxed and friendly atmosphere on the edge of a lovely, country town in South Australia but close to excellent facilities and good transport links to the city and beyond.
