“Great beds...”
Reviewed 17 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

My husband and I stayed at MacDonnell House with our two young daughters. It was a beautifully set up home that was comfortable and stylish. The quality of the beds was exceptional. I have a bad back and rarely wake up without back pain - I did wake up without it after sleeping at MacDonnell House. The owners had thought of everything, with a well-provisioned kitchen and movies for the children to watch. It is central and convenient too. We highly recommend MacDonnell House as a great place to stay in Naracoorte.

“Clean, spacious, well-equipped, comfortable and exceeded expectations.”
Reviewed 26 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We arrived after a long drive to find this lovely house exactly as advertised, with good quality and generous provisions (including the bottle of wine!). All the equipment and furniture, including the bathrooms was of a high standard, well maintained and exceptionally clean. There were plenty things to keep two small boys distracted safely for the couple of days we stayed there, including the play park just down the road. The location is also excellent and we had a wonderful time at the caves and wished we had stayed for longer. We will take happy memories back with us to Clare, SA and Devon, England.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have stayed at MacDonnell House many times over the years. It is always clean & the breakfast provisions are always more than enough for our family. Warm in winter & cool in summer. Hassle free booking & an easy to find location. Richard has done an amazing job with the renovation of this beautiful old property.

“worth a stay”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

three friends and I stayed for 2 nights. On arrival we found the place to be immaculate and the AC was on. This was a bonus given the fact the nights were very chilly. Each room was well equipped with a queen or double bed and a nice sound system. Three bathrooms was a bonus along with the food provided for breakfast.
The location was great, only minutes from anywhere. We'll be back.

“Great Weekend”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a great place to stay to enjoy all that Narracoorte has to offer. We where a party of four couples and the house provided every thing we needed and more. The bedrooms and living areas are beautiful and the location to the town centre was get. If you are plan to stay here then you must go to Tender Cuts butcher for the best sausages in SA. So good we are having them shipped to Adelaide for our friends to enjoy. Thank you Richard we will be back again soon to see the caves and sample some more wines.

Regards Joe

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 5 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My husband and I stayed here whilst on a limestone coast break. The house was beautifully clean, wonderfully appointed. Top quality kitchen and lovely and warm when we arrived on a cold day. Close to everything and superbly equipped. Great, comfortable bed and relaxing spa. One of the most enjoyable stays we have experienced. We would definitely recommend and will return for a longer break.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We arrived MacDonnell house on the very cold day. We opened the door, and everyone smiled. Nice big house, clean kitchen and bathrooms, and the house was WARM !! The housekeeper left the heater on for us. In the fridge, there were plenty of food for the breakfast, and bottle of wine on the kitchen table. Many DVDs to keep busy young children. This house was the best of the best during our two weeks driving holiday from Melbourne to South Australia.
