We returned to Thorn Park by the Vines for the third time, for our first wedding anniversary; nothing has changed. The hospitality is still warm and generous, all meals created by David are innovative, the asparagus and coriander soup with fresh prawns being particularly memorable, and complemented by excellent wines served in inimical style by Michael who also oversees the...

What a wonderful way to celebrate our 50th anniversary together with our friends from Melbourne. David makes the most delisious meals and Michael is a talented entertainer. The house is beautiful and very tastefully furnished. A very memorable weekend.

We have visited the Clare Valley over many, many years and marvel at how it has grown and developed, with Thorn Park by the Vines right in the thick of things. Staying at Thorn Park is one of life's true pleasures and one I hope to experience many times in the years to come. The house is relaxed and amiable,... More

David and Michael are the best hosts - not to mention superb food and wines. We are always sad to leave 'the boys' and look forward to our next visit. Thorn Park is the place to go if you feel like a little pampering and is excellent value.

The most wonderful hosts, the most personal touches, the most relaxing atmosphere - I would come back a million times! David and Michael have worked out how to make guests feel at home away from home, adding a luxury touch to everything and the comfort and relaxation it is generally hard to find. We stayed over Anzac Day weekend -... More

Our fifth visit to Thorn Park; we wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Clare Valley. Michael & David are the most attentive hosts, and always provide the highest level of service in everything they do. Looking forward to visit number six next year!

We have just spent 2 nights here and simple words could not do justice to the class, elegance and sheer beauty of this place. Michael and David are suberb hosts and nothing is too much trouble.

Just spent two fantastic nights at Thorn Park by the Vines and we can't fault the experience. The accommodation was perfect and our hosts made us feel very welcome. David & Michael looked after our every need. We dined in house each evening and the food / wine was outstanding. We will return.

Same owner of Thorn Park by the Vines. The small townhouse is located right the heart of Adelaide. Close to restaurant and bars at Rundle Street. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The small unit is best equipped especially kitchen essentials with all you need as visitors. There is a cover carport that you can park your car safely... More
