“Great golf getaway by the beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We have just spent five nights at McCracken Country Club - we found the accommodation very good - everything clean & tidy. Facilities were all very good and the golf course was no exception. We look forward to returning some time soon.

Stayed here for a two night package and was very impressed right from the start.
The room was nice and bright with a spa in the room. We had the first floor room overlooking the golf course which was fantastic. The breakfasts were hearty and great selection from the buffet tables. Dinner can be in two different areas, one a silver service restaurant the other pub style meals in the bar. Both have excellent choices and tasted great. Highly recommend the seafood platter for two in the bar, but make sure you're hungry! Also make sure you book as both restaurants have regular deals and is very popular with guests and locals!
The heated indoor pool and spa was clean and stays open quite late which was nice. The gym is small but adequate and there is plenty of local attractions to walk off breakfast!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the golf course view, but try for the balcony ones on the first floor for extra pr...

Dear Paul n Flip

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with you extensive review of our property. The first floor rooms are my favourite as well because of the spacious balcony & great views of the course. Our themed nights have become very popular, but there is always room for our house guests. Again thank you for your feedback & we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

We had a lovely stay and all staff were very helpful and happy to help. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was lovely and on Tuesday they have 2 for 1 dinner specials. Would love to go back again.

this was our first trip to stay a couple of nights at the resort . first we are lucky to have a genuine golf course with an attached resort in such a beautiful location . our room was overlooking the first tee and had tremendous views. the room was great with our own balcony. i do wish however that we were warned to book a table for dinner on tuesday night as when we arrived for a table were told it was 2 for 1 night and will have to wait over 2 hours for a table!!! . the course is terrific and areal challenge for all golfers . the pool is nice and clean but the gym is too small for any more than a couple of people at a time and swinging weights around in such a small space is a little dangerous . overall though we loved it and definately hope to visit again

Room Tip: pay the extra for a balcony golf course view room

Beautiful views from our comfy and spacious room. Staff friendly and food excellant. My husband enjoyed playing the challenging golf course. We would recommend McCracken as a great place to stay for a lazy weekend and of course the McClaren Vale wine district is just a short drive away.

Dear Julie

With McLaren Vale only 25 minutes away, McCracken is a great location to enjoy all the attractions of the Fleurieu from. With the golf course getting close to it's best as well it would have been a great time to play.

My partner and I found the experience fantastic. The breakfast was great and highly satisfying. The facilities were really good and we found it great to finally find a place where they do not shut the indoor pools down by a certain time of night. We enjoyed having a relaxing swim, spa and sauna after a long day of adventure. We are actually already looking forward to come back next year.

My husband and I stayed for two nights in a balcony kitchenette suite that had a spa bath (bath, not 2 person spa). We had purchased a Scoopon and elected to upgrade to a kitchenette suite. It had a double bed, not a queen but that was not an issue. I noted that electric blankets were supplied for the colder months.

Check in was warm, friendly and efficient and first impression of our room was very positive. We had a great view of the golf course, the room was clean and well set out and provisions in kitchenette were more than adequate. My only criticism and they should replace those ridiculously small cups for mugs! Extra towels were supplied which was very thoughtful.

Full buffet breakfast was included and it was delicious! Plenty to choose from and again the staff were attentive but not intrusive.

The place is well situated and was very quiet. With more of Victor Harbor to explore we will visit again and we will be more than happy to stay at the McCracken Country Club again.

Room Tip: A balcony room will offer great views!
