Unique stay in this beautiful accommodation . Rooms and styling are outstanding . Sunset over the vineyards is magical! Beds are incredibly comfortable and the bath is fantastic. We would thoroughly recommend staying here and there is nothing else like it anywhere near. Included breakfast not really in keeping with the high standard and low footprint ethics of the hotel. Less food but more local offerings with less packaging would be an improvement .

Hi DB, Thank you for your review and suggestion. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Food safety is very challenging for a small property as the purchases are very small and to keep things fresh, we almost need to shop every other day. The more you handle food, the greater the risk. We repacked in smaller containers everything we could to ensure access to the items but also ensure food safety. Milk is local, fruit is as local as possible, most times jam comes from our property (we make it from our fruit trees) but from our past experience guest would not eat, for instance, yogurt placed in generic containers and not sealed. We spent long hours weighting bigger containers against smaller container (e.g. yogurt and orange juice) and the big containers weren't not an improvement in the attempt to reduce waste. We recycle everything from the room, including the coffee pods and wine bottles. We invested heavily in a system to have delicious and safe water from the tap and we also provide sparking water to all guests with no charge in the attempt to avoid anybody bringing plastic bottles into the property. We will keep researching and trying to improve and reduce our waste.

Friendly, simple check-in. A beautiful contemporary room with an even better outlook. Well appointed with wine, snacks, breakfast and coffee. A thoroughly relaxing stay in McLaren Vale and recommend highly.
