“South OZ Road Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

Only about 1 hour drive north of Adelaide is this lovely B&B. You cannot believe how quiet a place can be. The bed was spacious and so comfortable, the well appointed huge bathroom and the breakfast supplies magnificent (especially the bacon). When you walk out the back door you find this hidden garden full of surprises. Thanks to Margaret and Villis for the guided tour of your own residence. We will and have recommended Olde Devonshire House to our friends. You made us feel so welcomed.

as we walked through the gate and down the pathway to check in,we had no idea of the magnitude of the property we were going to spend three lovely days at.The gardens are simply beautiful and the character of times gone by unspoilt.Imagine our surprise at finding everything in the apartment so well appointed.We stayed in No.3 which has a stunning step down spa! The size of the interior very deceiving from the outside.Everything we could have asked for was here!
Thankyou Pete and Lin

A friend gave my fiance and I a voucher to stay here as an engagement present and amid months of wedding planning we couldn't wait to escape for a weekend. What a wonderful place! Devonshire House is everything it promises to be and more. The town of Mintaro feels like a step back in time, and while the cottage has all the modern amenities you could want, it still has that lovely old world charm. We arrived a little bit early but it was no trouble for the hosts, who greeted us warming and explained the where to get more wood for the fire (which was already prepped and ready for us that evening!). The breakfast provisions were more than we could eat in four days, let alone 2. A wonderful range and quality ingredients. The finishing touch of a decanter of port and a box of chocolates was perfect for a cold winter weekend. The only tiny downside was the DVD player wasn't working very well, but we liked the place so much that we've just bought another voucher to return next year!

Room Tip: We had the cottage on the far left (looking at the property from the street - the post office side...

My wife and I spent a lovely mid week stay here to celebrate our anniversary. We found the accommodation (Room 1) to be delightful! The apartment was very spacious; it had an excellent kitchen and bathroom and a charming and comfortable period bedroom. The log fire in the lounge area was lovely in the evenings. We had everything we needed and the breakfast provisions were tasty and very generous.

Mintaro is within easy driving distance of all of the Clare Valley attractions and we enjoyed several winery visits. We really enjoyed lunches at Reilly's Restaurant and Skilogallee Winery. Our only disappointment was that the local pub only does meals on weekends!

We will be back!

Spent our anniversary weekend in historic and quaint Mintaro in the picturesque Clare Valley, Suite was cosy with comfortable bed, quiet room and excellent breakfast provisions. Spa was very relaxing. Suite part of a amazing historic buliding straight out of Provence, it seems with lovely cottage gardens surrounds. Dined at the local pub with great food and had a platter at Reillys for lunch with a crisp riesling. The town itself is so quaint and beautiful to walk around with cared for gardens and cottages. Would recommend a stay to relax and destress.

Stayed on a Monday and Tuesday night, and were a bit disappointed to find that most of Mintaro was closed. But the accomodation was fine, and we were very pleased that we couldn't hear a sound from the other occupants of the property Beautiful gardens, and lovely spa.

On a recent trip to Adelaide I took a drive up to beautiful Mintaro arriving well into the evening, I called into the local pub , asked about accommodation and was directed to Mark and Julie Ross the owners of Devenshire House; What an extraordinarily friendly couple. We had a great dinner and a few bottles of local red. I overnighted in one of their excellent rooms, enjoyed a great spa, comfortable bedding and ate a sumptuous bacon and egg breakfast under the front verandah. Finished off the morning with coffee and complimentary chocolates. Could not recommend this B and B more highly, beautiful surroundings and totally relaxing. Next trip to adelaide I will certainly be going back.
