Amande Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 17 McLaren Vale B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 22, 2011

We recently spent a weekend experiencing the many wineries of Mclaren Vale and stayed at Amande Bed & Breakfast. The hosts were so accomodating, in fact I dont think I have encountered such wonderful service. They went out of their way to ensure that our stay with them was just perfect from thecomplimentary Port & Chocolate on arrival to helping us plan our wine tasting route, recommending wineries.
The accomodation (Lavender) was just heavenly and the views of the surrounding vineyards, magical. We will definitely visit Amande again next time we visit Australia as the memories we have are just so special. Thank you for a truly wonderful stay.

My boyfriend and I first stayed in Amande back in September, i'm from the UK and he booked it as a surprise for me as a weekend away in the vines and it was absolutely stunning. The location is absolutely perfect, so close to McLaren Vale but at the same time so close to the beach at Maslin's, it was exactly what we wanted to do, relax in luxury. Our host was so lovely, she helped us with directions (because i cannot use a map, or a satnav hehe) and met us there when we arrived even though it was late at night to show us in! There was wine and chocolates in the apartment for us and also the breakfast supplies provided were fantastic, such a good range. Ooh and not to forget the spa bath <3
So after our first lovely experience at Amande we decided to go back for seconds... and we weren't disappointed. We were invited to an engagement party down in the vale and because of Amande we decided to make it another weekend-er. This time we stayed on California road which is more in the vines than before and that was the Australia i have always wanted to experience!! Lavender cottage <3 a double shower and attached to the main house a spa!! Our host was so lovely (and this time Irish!!), checked we had everything we needed in regards to towels etc and asked if we would like any more breakfast supplies! I'd really recommend Amande to anyone but especially those couples who want a relaxing weekend away in luxury. x

They kept us on hold, on our booking and wouldn't respond to our email and just in the last week responded saying "Sorry, we are full". So if booking with them and they are not responding don't trust, go book somewhere else.... Wonder if they had done this on arrival, we would have been stranded there!!!

Dear exaliber 82,
Thanks for writing a response. We are the new owners of Amande and feel very sorry you had such a negative experience here under the previous owners. Your comments have certainly helped us to concentrate on providing a level of service which you unfortunately missed under previous management. We hope you might come and stay another time as we have updated the units, TV's and put in a pool. Regards Donna and Mike

My husband and I went to McLaren Vale for a few days after being in Adelaide to watch The Tour Down Under. I found Amande B&B on the internet. It was a wonderful find! The room was very cozy and we felt very "at home". The complementary port and chocolates hit the spot. The breakfast provisions were excellent...fresh eggs, bacon, sausages, fresh bread and fruit which we cooked at our leisure. The owners were wonderful..very nice and extremely helpful in finding a wine tour and good places to eat. I highly recommend Amande B&B on your next trip to McLaren Vale!
