Reviewed 9 April 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed here in February for a wedding in the caves at Naracoorte.

We originally booked this house for five people but at the last minute changed it to three people. We weren't expecting any reduction in the price but were pleasantly surprised when we were only charged per bedroom.

From the moment you park your car in the secure lock up back yard you are in heaven. The house was beautiful. We had three huge bedrooms and three huge beautiful bathrooms. The kitchen is also huge and had everything you could possibly need. Richard had left us enough food for breakfast for an army.

The house was spotlessly clean and I have no hesitation recommending it to anyone wanting accommodation in Naracoorte.

From the minute you walk into this house you feel like you have just come home. After an eight hr drive walking into a beautiful and toasty warm room was awesome. There is nothing but great things to mention for this accommodation. Clean, fresh, warm, gorgeous. Fridge was stocked, pantry was fully stocked, Everything you could think you might need was there plus more. There was not a thing out of place., Complimentary bottle of wine., over and above. Two types of milks., real milk too., everything was perfect. I hope to stay again., will recommend to everyone I know.

We were at MacDonnell House for a weekend 3 couples and one child . This beautiful home was spotless! Breakfast provisions were top quality and plentiful. House had excellent heating and was close to town to walk for meals.
Very professionally run from the time of booking. What a wonderful find- only hope to go back one day.

“Great place to and enjoy good wines”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My parents recommended this house for my friends and I to enjoy this beautiful wine region.
What a wonderful place it was like home away from home with everything you would need including breakfast for all 6 of us for both morning. Get location just a 5 minute walk to the main street and 10 minute drive to the caves. This house is setup for couples, families and groups of friends. We will be back.

“Cosy and classy”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a lovely stay in this character-filled house. The central heating created a welcoming warmth when we entered late on a chilly winter's afternoon. Complementary wine and fruit were also appreciated. The kitchen had all we needed for cooking and the coffee machine was put to good use.
The main bathroom includes a double shower and a separate spa bath (and a decent hot water system to cope with demand), which adds to the luxurious feel of the house.
This accommodation is walking distance to the town centre and provided a good base to explore the region further.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed here as a member of a group working at a local sports event. With long days outside it was great to come home to a well equipped kitchen, couches, TV, and comfortable beds. Our party consisted of two couples and two singles so we were well catered for by the four double bedrooms and three bathrooms (one en suite). The house was beautifully warm thanks to central heating, and we also had electric blankets if needed. There is a laundry with washing machine and dryer, and the modern kitchen has a dishwasher. Location is walking distance to the Main Street and excellent meals are to be found at the Naracoorte Hotel If you can't be bothered cooking at home.. This would be great house for families or groups holidaying in the region. Babies and small children are catered for and the garden is fully fenced.

“A home away from home while being pampered”
Reviewed 25 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

MacDonnell House is a beautifully renovated home, with an array of modern conveniences and stylishly furnished throughout. Richard and his team mad my stay delightful, I'm on the road so much for business, staying in accommodation that feels like home makes travelling so far more enjoyable.
The rear sun room and gardens are quiet places to relax, ponder and enjoy a bottle of complimentary wine.
I can highly recommend MacDonnell House and the other B&B's in Richards collection as impeccably presented and consistently quality, affordable and consistent accommodation that will make your stay memorable. I'll definitely be staying again during my next business trip to Naracoorte.
