“Fantastic cottage, stunning view. Recommended!!”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

Clare View Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. The views are stunning, the cottage is very comfortable and the wood fire is excellent in the winter. The owner was very friendly and greeted us on our first morning there. Easily accessible by car from Clare, only 5mins drive into town. Kitchen fully kitted out including consumables like olive oil, cling wrap etc. Bed very comfortable, spa excellent. Cottage was maintained to a very high standard. We would stay again tomorrow. Discount vouchers were a bonus too.

Great to hear Cameron!
The Clare View COTTAGE is great for couples like you. Always fantastic to hear when our guests have a great time and appreciate the effort we have made with love to accommodate our guests!
The vouchers are just a little extra bonus for our guests to get some great value on wines, food and events! Thanks for staying with us and looking forward welcoming you back soon. Cheers

Wondefull views and the house is large open plan and very wheelchair friendly except that the mirror in the bathroom was too high for some one in a wheelchair. Unfortunately our bed was like sleeping on a plank of wood and the lounge funrinture was the most uncomfortable I have ever come accross. The provisions were also not upto standard with homebrand bread and the tea and coffe was very second rate

Dear Ian,
Thank you for your valuable feedback. Great to hear you loved the views & the wheelchair friendliness of the Clare View HOUSE.

Sorry to hear that your mattress was not as comfortable as you wished for. We haven't had any complaints about the mattresses since we've replaced them with brand new ones. Softness of a mattress is very personal and our apologies if you experienced it as being to hard. We will definitely check them out again to find out if they need replacing.

Also sorry to hear that you experienced our leather couches and lounge chairs as uncomfortable. We always leave feedback forms for all our guests and this is the first time since our opening in January 2009 that we hear about this. But we will certainly look into it, to find out if anything needs replacing. Thank you for your honest feedback.

The bread we supply is specially for toast. The tea we provide is of various quality tea brands and the coffee from Nescafe, blend 43. In our opinion and that of fellow B&B owners good quality products, but again sorry to hear you experienced it as not up to standard and very second rate. I trust that our freshly laid free range eggs and our other generous breakfast provisions compensated the standard you wished for.

Wow, what a place! On top of the hill with spectacular views all way around. Stayed here for 3 nights, wish it was 30. The house is very spacious and luxurious with beautiful details. We had excellent hosts, who immediately made us feel at home. It is perfectly located in Clare Valley with easy access to wine tasting by car or, even better, by bike (Riesling Trail).
We highly recommend this place to anybody who loves comfortable living in beautiful surroundings!

Thanks Mark & Anne! Great to hear you enjoyed your stay and wished it was 30 days! You know where to find us if you wish to escape the Swedish winters! We are indeed centrally, but quietly located and the first wine tasting opportunity is just 1 km down the road. The Riesling Trail bike path is one of the must do things in the Clare Valley with beautiful views and plenty of restaurants & cellar doors (wine tasting) along the way. A unique way to do this is to hire a fun bike, these are pedal go-karts, 3 & 4 wheeled bicycles that can have 1,2,3,4 or some even 6 people on them. Super fun. Cheers, Esther & Ronald, Clare View Accommodation

The Clare View is a wonderful and relaxing place with a great view. There is more than enough space in and around the house. We enjoyed every minute of our stay, together with friends from far away:-)
One day we will come back.

Thanks for that! Always great to hear when our guests appreciate the energy & love we've put into the Clare View HOUSE. 27 acres of space outside and outlooks over 45 kilometers away certainly gives you the impression of enough space! We hope, one day, we will see you back! Warm regards, Esther & Ronald van Diessen, Clare View

The accommodation is huge, modern, and filled with little extras you don't get everywhere.

Ronald doing up a bonfire made us feel extremely welcome.

Highly recommended. Great for families and friends.

If its peace & tranquility you're after this is definitely the place to stay. With spectacular 360 degree views of the Clare Valley & a beautiful well maintained house we couldn't have asked for better accommodation. Centrally located to the wineries & Clare it was the perfect getaway. It was a weekend we won't forget & we would highly recommend Clare View to any family & friends. We will definitely be back just to enjoy the views. Thank you Ron & Esther. Vera & Mal

Dear Vera & Mal,
Thanks so much for your kind words! Absolutely delighted every time we receive reviews like yours. That's what we are in the game for! Looking forward having you all back to watch the views from your bed of the Clare View HOUSE. And if you bring more than 8 friends along they could rent the Clare View COTTAGE with the same stunning views from the master bedroom & watch the baby alpacas in the paddock! Cheers!

Fantastic famly-friendly holiday accommodation. Great location with sweeping views and plenty of space for kids to run outside. The property has alpacas, chickens and a couple of turkeys which my two year old was captivated with!
Very clean and breakfast supplies were plentiful for our 5 adults - the brightest, fresh yellow eggs I have ever seen!
