Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Quiet bushland setting. Wren cottage was spacious and clean. The provisions for our breakfast and snacks were amazingly plentiful and of good quality with most being of local origin. Fresh flowers on our dining table were that special added touch

We arrived a little early for our lunch, and we’re looked after perfectly with a quick wine tasting. It was a beautiful day, so our booking for inside was quickly changed to outside on the verandah. Great service, excellent food accompanied by impressive wines from Skillagolee of course. Always worth booking- we missed out 6 years ago, so really happy to finally have the experience.

Wren Cottage set bs l in the bush. Spotlessly clean. Ample firewood and very generous breakfast supplies - eggs, bread, sausage, bacon, tomatoes, juice, cereal, fruit. The staff at the cellar door super friendly and informed about their wines. Wish we were staying longer!

We stopped off here for a wine tasting. It is a gorgeous little cottage in a lovely setting. I liked a couple of their wines and finally came away with a sparkling riesling. The gentleman who took us through the tasting was very helpful.

We recently stayed for 2 nights at Skillogalee House situated in the Skillogalee Vineyards. This is a fabulous 3 double bedroom house with cosy lounge and fireplace. There is an additional lounge and dining room and well equipped kitchen. A laundry with washing machine & dryer proved very handy. A real mix of old and new with a beautifully renovated main bathroom. Very clean and well presented. Breakfast supplies (cooked) were plentiful and the outlook from all the rooms was delightful. I would highly recommend a stay here. Quiet peaceful and relaxing. And whilst in a very rural setting the free wi-fi was good !!!!

My partner and I visited Skillogalee on our Riesling trail bike riding adventure and we had a fantastic time! Bev was serving us and she was amazing. She was very knowledgable, friendly, and attentive. We enjoyed sitting in the courtyard on a sunny Friday afternoon tasting some great wines - stand outs were the rose (with attitude!), gewurzttraminer, and muscat. Thank you and we will be back!

The surroundings were lovely the gardens beautiful, however the actual restaurant was tired, every thing looked like it needed a deep clean and paint touch up. We were in the corner of the verandah and the clear blinds were in need of a clean and the verandah posts were covered in cobwebs. The waitresses whilst friendly were slow to serve. They also allowed a patron with a dog who jumped up on a guest on another table. I found that a very confronting experience. The food was ok if not a little overcooked.

We booked the main house - and despite the cold and wintry weather we had a great time. The house is quite luxurious - with everything you would want- warm with an open fire which is a great treat to sit by plus warmth at our fingertips with reverse cycle ac. The expansive views from the generous lounge/kitchen area are iconic aussie views - bushland and vineyards. We drank only Clare Valley wines including a fabulous collection of Skillogalee - sparklings and reds and reislings. We could have eaten at the restaurant which has a gourmet menu but preferred to cook and eat at home - equally as comfortable. The main house provides a perfect location for eating drinking and walking- thankyou!
