The accommodation was clean and had a country feel to it. The views from the property are spectacular. The hosts were very hospitable and even lit a fire for us in the main house for us to enjoy before we headed out for dinner. There is no TV in the room which we didnt mind but good to know for...

It was a wonderful break away from the pressures of life to just be able to relax and unpack your cares at Abbotsford Country Cottage. From the warm welcome from Julian as we arrived to the wonderful interaction with other guests around the fire at night. We can't thank Julian, Jane and Sophie enough for the care to detail that...

We had a excellent weekend staying at Abbotsford. From the moment we arrived our hosts could not do enough for us. When quizzed they have an in depth knowledge of the community which really added colour to our daily adventures. The accommodation was warm, inviting and nicely appointed and clean. One of the highlights was sitting around the fire in... More

While this place was clean and comfortable, it represented the worst value for accommodation we have experienced anywhere in the world. We have stayed at hundreds of hotels around the world and for the price charged, it is appalling value, even at its slightly discounted online rates. Unless you are prepared to pay over $450 per night, the room is... More

Stayed at Abbotsford recently and the entire experience was amazing. The property itself is magnificent and hosts are great especially janes great breakfasts....nothing is too much to ask. Enjoyed having a wine and cheese around the open fire place as well as chatting with other guests. Could not recommend any higher and will be back when next at barossa.

Terrible service, rude, arrogant and misleading - I would never recommend Abbotsford Country House to anyone. I was greeted by the owner after driving an hour and half from Adelaide, who then said I was lucky to have a bed??? After seeing I had a child, he then went on to tell me they do not accomodate children, although it... More

This guest arrived quite late and we made a point of greeting them whilst they were in their car to ask their name. We do this because there is another accommodation provider next door to us and people confuse our driveways. So rather than them getting out of their car and coming into the guesthouse, we greet them at their... More

We had the most wonderful stay at Abbotsford's. The hosts Julian and Jane are absolutely delightful. From the nip of port and fudges on arrival, to the lovely cooked breakfasts, the wonderful advice on wineries and restaurants to visit it made our stay amazing. The location is very close to Lyndoch on a homestead a couple of kilometers down a... More

A real disappointment - a rude owner, a tired faciiity, no WIFI, no TV (let alone pay TV), miles from nowhere. 1990s decor. We arrived at 12pm - a couple of hours early on Friday, Owner has his ute across the driveway watering a garden bed. He proceeded to tell us that we were early and could not check in.... More

This house is straight from a movie. As you drive down the dusty vineyard roads, catching a glimpse of this warm and majectic country home set high on the hills is enough to give you goosebumps. With paddocks of cows, beautifully manicured gardens and a view of the vineyards in the valley of the Barossa, this was the perfect R... More
