Ok, all I have to say is do yourself a real big favour and take time to stay at this enchanting place.
We spent four nights here and would have liked to have stayed many more.
Thank you Meg and Andrew. We felt like family during our visit. Even through a slight hicup with plans you were both so helpfull.

We would stay here again without a doubt.

This was one of the highlights of out trip to Australia. Don't waste time on the reviews just get booked and find out first hand.

For us, the original attraction to spend two nights at Hillgrove was the ability to take our home-comforted dogs along for the trip. But when we arrived, Hillgrove clearly had so much more to offer.
The views are spectacular, the surrounds quiet and the ammenities second to none. Everything was provided - and in such quality that we were left wanting for nothing. It was as if, quite frankly, Meg and Andrew had read our minds when I saw the punnet of cherries in the fridge. It was the perfect antidote to the fact that I had neglected to buy some along the way.
I could tell you to make this stay a top priority- but then you might clash with our efforts to return again and again! Thank you Meg and Andrew for opening up your wonderful house to us.

Room Tip: Both rooms are spectacular - why choose?

We have been coming to this gorgeous b&b for 12 years now and will be back for more! This is a gorgeous heritage building that has been lovingly restored with all the modern luxuries in the most gorgeous setting a top a lush green valley. Everything is quality down to the food which is all locally sourced and abundant! There is also a big luxurious spa bath overlooking the valley with an overhanging chandelier and candles! Highly recommended!!

Many thanks to Meg & Andrew for a Absolutely Wonderful romantic birthday weekend away at Hillgrove House. It's hard to express how impressed we were with the Amazing views (both outside, from the large spa, bedrooms and lounge areas), the more than generous food provisions (especially appreciate sourcing local & organic produce) and all of the small touches, they have truly thought of everything (we really didn't need to bring a thing!). I love that they allow your family dog to share the getaway with you too. We were fortunate enough to have lovely sunny warm days to spend outside and cool nights to make use of the wood fire and spa. It's so cosy that we ended up opting to stay in rather than have dinner out! Thankyou for your peaceful & relaxing sanctuary, we cannot speak more highly of our stay to our friends!

Waratah Cottage is so much more than one would expect from a B&B.
It is situated in an incredibly beautiful part of the world, whether taking in the breathtaking views from the kitchen window or venturing out for a walk. The Cottage itself is very comfy with great facilites, comfy bed, massive bathroom, large spa with amazing views of it's own.
And the food!! Super yummy breakfast provisions are only the beginning, the Burdetts have done a fantastic job of sourcing all kinds of local produce, food and drink. It's like taking a tour of the Adelaide hills from the comfort of your own kitchen. There is nothing lacking and much more than expected. We have yet to find another B&B that compares. We will be back!
