Disappointing stay.

2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 July 2019
We recently had the most delightful short holiday in South Australia, staying in Adelaide, the Barossa Valley and at Sterling in the Adelaide Hills. The only disappointment of this gorgeous time was our stay at Abbotsford Country House. The rooms were very old fashioned and worn...lighting was poor and bulbs blown, items were dusty, the toilet seat was loose - in general everything need a good clean and polish. Although we alerted the owner to this nothing happened. Jane prepared lovely breakfasts, but we would rather have had time to ourselves than had Julian droning on about his escapades and interrupting guests chatting with each other.
My wish is that owners would occasionally stay in guest rooms and learn first hand what is needed.
The location is superb, the rooms quiet...but it all needs a spruce up.

This B&B is in a lovely location, beautiful environment and lovely hosts. The room was comfortable (few cobwebs unfortunately, but otherwise good), breakfast was fabulous cooked by the lovely owner Jane. Was a bit put out with no TV in room, but I soon got over that!!!!

A beautifully appointed country house sitting on a hill just outside of Lyndoch with ample parking. Good views of the surrounding country side.The guest rooms are very well laid out in a country house style with a superb large bathroom including a walk in shower. Breakfast excellent, anything you could ask for all freshly cooked. Thouroughly enjoyed our stay.

Purpose built by owner Julian to provide excellent accommodation and superb very large sitting and dining rooms in the main homestead. Julian's breakfasts are amazing and he is a mine of information about the area and it's history. Great fun. Also at Julian's suggestion we had dinner at The Lord Lyndoch restaurant which is a few minutes drive away and had one of the best steaks we have ever had outside Argentina.

Room tip: All rooms are excellent.

What a unique and wonderful experience we had staying at Julian and Jane’s hotel! Julian made us feel so at home and couldn’t have been nicer. The setting and the property are beautiful. So restful!
We would highly recommend this property. Would definitely stay here again.
