What a disappointment!! Given the reviews of others, and the price, I was expecting something fit for the gods. Not the case. Just an average B&B in a heritage building. Rooms were large and comfortable but with minimal wall hangings and a lack of expected luxury or heritage fixtures. The bed linen was coarse fabric without a top sheet. The...

From the moment we arrived until we left, nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed the views from our bathroom and balcony from the Stephen King suite. The food was beautifully presented and tasted sublime. I cannot express what a lovely stay we had. The picnic a must and went beyond our expectations. Kathy and Kieran made it rememberable....

What a fantastic homestead! We stayed here for our 37th wedding anniversary and from the moment we entered the front gate and drove down the long driveway towards the homestead, we knew this would be a memorable stay. On arrival Kathy made us feel very welcome, and her knowledge and care of the guests is fantastic. The homestead and the...

A beautiful piece of Australian history restored with all the mod cons. Some of the best meals we have ever had matched with magnificent Barossa Valley wines. The hospitality from staff goes over and beyond what is expected and nothing is ever a problem. Kingsford Homestead is a certainty for the bucket list.

We visited the grounds while attending a McLeod's Daughters Drover Run Reunion 2016. The grounds & house have been restored and the area, though hidden when first arriving shows lovely lush fields and amazing photography. The white cockatoos in the trees where a bit noisy when we arrived but did quieten down when the birds finally moved on. But overall...

Very spacious and tastefully decorated rooms in a fantastic old building that was used for the filming of McLoeds daughters. The majority of the rooms are up a flight of stairs however there is one room on the ground floor if people have reduced mobility.

All of the reviews meant I arrived with very high expectations, which were delivered in every aspect. Very friendly welcome, particularly good after a very long drive. An immediate drink made us feel like house guests, not hotel residents. We stayed in Stonemasons Cottage, which was beautiful, peaceful and really large for 2 people. On-tap drinks, lovely setting, pool and...

If you really want to treat yourself, reserve a few nights at this world-class inn. You'll feel like you're at home, thanks to the caretakers, but your home probably doesn't provide you with fabulous meals and great wine pairings every night. Wild kangaroos can often be seen on the property in the early morning and at sundown. And you can...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kingsford Homestead is an award winning, luxury country retreat - offering a boutique Bed and Breakfast package. We additionally offer an Exclusive Use package - all-inclusive food, wine and accommodation (14 guests). Located on the edge of the iconic Barossa Valley in South Australia, the picturesque 225 acre property is nestled amongst rolling hills on the banks of the North Para River. Just 45 minutes from Adelaide and yet you feel a million miles away. Sit under the veranda of the heritage homestead 'circa 1856' and enjoy outstanding wines handmade in the Barossa. Famous wineries such as Peter Lehmann, Yalumba, Rockford, Hentley Farm and Penfolds are a short drive from the property (10-15 minutes). Indulge yourself and experience one of the world's most beautiful award-winning al fresco baths, set in a secluded corner of the property. Take a picnic on the river. Take a balloon flight over the vines. Take your time. Gather beside a roaring fire and raise a ruby Shiraz to a diamond night sky. In summer, plunge into our opulent resort style swimming pool. Kingsford Homestead can accommodate up to fourteen guests in seven luxurious and individually decorated suites. It has been the home to a wealthy nineteenth-century pastoralist. It has been the television home of McLeod's Daughters. And now...it is yours. ... more   less
