This was a real find. My partner and I arrived in port elliot with no set accommodation. David and Rachel were amazing hosts. We stayed in both the Hamilton suite inside and then moved to the maids cottage. Both stays were incredible but the maids cottage was so great we kept extending our stay! It has been recently renovated. All... More

I recently stayed here with three of my friends and would 100% recommend the service and accommodation provided by Trafalgar on the Strand. The attention to detail in our cottage was perfect, they had thought of everything! Whenever we come to Port Elliot I know exactly where I'll be staying every time - can't wait to come back!

We love staying in the Lady Hamilton Suite. It's welcoming, spotlessly clean, quiet & beautiful, a great size for a couple & - especially after the recent & impressive renovations - the perfect mix of old fashioned charm & spanking new fittings. Trafalgar House really is the best location in Pt Elliot. Its a very easy walk to the beach,... More

Port Elliot is one of my favorite destinations. In 2012, it was to be the place where we remarried in the gardens overlooking Horseshoe Bay. We chose Trafalgar on the Stand for our wedding night (and a couple more) and so when we returned just recently for one night, we again opted for this wonderful establishment. It is quiet, romantic... More

We had stayed here several years ago and had a very enjoyable time. We can now say that, with new owners the experience was equally good. The location is wonderful - close to a great beach, boutique shopping and a superb bakery. The hosts were available when needed, and very helpful. Breakfast supplies were excellent, and the Lady Hamilton suite... More

Thank you for your lovely review Margaret. We thought we would let you know that the Lady Hamilton Suite and the Cottage have both had a makeover during the winter of 2013. The Lady Hamilton Suite now has a new kitchen and the bathroom has been upgraded, plus I'm pleased to report that the internal step has been eliminated. We... More

As an avid Jane Austen fan, staying in the Lady Hamilton suite was a breath of fresh air. When you step inside this romantic suite you feel a little like you are stepping back into another time, with all the modern conveniences. And when I say 'another time,' I do not mean old or dirty. Every room feels classic and... More

Trafalgar on the Strand is an adorable and spacious cottage, very conveniently located just a few minutes walk to the beach, even closer to the Port Elliott Hotel for dinner and drinks, and an easy drive into the heart of McLaren Vale wine country. The house itself was larger than I expected, with a very large master bedroom, large second... More

We stayed for a much needed weekend away without our children and were looking for a romantic place to stay near the beach and not too far from the city. We certainly got that. The accommodation was just lovely. When we arrived we were surprised to find that our suite included a small kitchen, a bathroom, a lounge and large... More

I took a punt on the Maid's Cottage at Trafalgar on the Strand - there were no reviews here, but the whole place is rated 4* by two organizations so I thought it might be ok. It wasn't bad - just not really good. We paid $190 for bed and breakfast for two, which I thought a bit overpriced. If... More

Thanks for the review. It is always useful for property owners to have constructive advice. I am pleased that you liked Port Elliot, its a very special place. The Maids Cottage was built in 1920 and is typical of a house built at this time in South Australia - a mix of very thick stone calls and light weight fibro... More
