“Absolutley Spectacular”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a wonderful stay at Pinkerton hill over the 6th - 8th of May.

It is a lovely property and has plenty of space for large groups and was great for our family getaway. The house was spotlessly clean and the beds were more comfortable than those in our own home! They also had electric blankets which was a lovely surprise.

The Spa bath was divine and the fully equipped kitchen was simply marvelous.

The house is also away from main roads which meant it was very quite at night and allowed us to sleep well.

Thank you so much to Richard & Judy for such a pleasurable experience!

“Wish we could have stayed longer”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Our stay at Pinkerton Hill might’ve been brief but it was no about enjoyable and relaxing, in fact when our time drew closer to an end, we found ourselves feeling a sense of sadness and loss. We hope that we can stay longer if we are ever lucky enough to return.

Pinkerton Hill is not far from Naracoorte Caves, which was quite interesting but if that’s not your idea of fun then the adventure caving is highly recommended. For the warmer days, we had many a wonderful time at the Naracoorte Swimming Lake (it’s free entry too). For your pizza needs, we eagerly suggest Naracoorte Pizza house. It was definitely beneficial to us having these places easily accessible.

We were a large group so we were pleasantly surprised when we discovered that Pinkerton Hill could accommodate our size quite comfortably. The cottage is so spacious and well equipped with utensils, cooking equipment, washing machine, dish washer, etc The spa provided much needed relief from all the physical activities but also much needed pampering from our daily lives! If you have little ones, they will receive endless joy from the swing set and freedom to run around on the large front yard. It was very special to watch this, however if you don’t have little ones, all you need to do is sit down at the table overlooking the swing set and lush green grass and it will make you forget about everything- it was THAT relaxing! And no house is complete without a BBQ. It was greatly appreciated on the warm days/nights for all our quality family lunches/dinners.

Breakfast was made less stressful for us as all items were stocked and ready for us to enjoy. The kids loved being able to pick and choose their own breakfast cereals and the portions were suitable too. Coffee being on hand daily kept many people in the cottage happy and sane. The bacon was a standout, though and should come as no surprise that there was simply none left by the end of our stay.

Richard and staff were exceptionally attentive to our needs and easy to communicate with throughout our stay. They were also understanding and genuine in making sure we were doing okay, which made a huge difference to our overall experience.

Thank you for taking such great care of us from start to finish!

“Magnifique surprise du week end près des grottes classées au patrimoine de l'UNESCO !”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Great house & garden with a lot of space everywhere, with large and confortable bedroom (and king size bed, spa ! ). Everything is clean and the kitchen is well equipped.
Lot of things in the house (wifi, 2 Tv, DVD, books, playground, informations about activities around the town...).
Relax ans pleasant time outside with the BBQ and playground. The complimentary local wine was excellent.
Cosy house to have great time. Close to the Caves!

Excellente location avec une maison typiquement australienne, avec beaucoup d'espaces, mais aussi de l'intimité. Je conseille vivement cette maison. La bouteille de vin local offerte était excellente.

Thank you for everything.

“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

A great halfway house (between Adelaide & Geelong) to catch up with our daughter and family. Situated on the outskirts of town and very peaceful. We were very pleasantly surprised at the size of the house and grounds and the ample provisions supplied. We all agreed that the beds were very comfortable. We very much enjoyed our short stay here and have every intention of a longer return visit.

We have used this house on two occasions: once for my fathers 90th birthday and then nearly two years later when we said goodbye to him. The house with all its large bedrooms, multiple bathroom options and huge entertaining rooms were perfect. The owners were very flexible to work with and accommodating of our requests to have the extended family, beyond those staying, to drop in, so for both of these events it was hub central. All who visited were amazed at the quality and breadth of the facilities, generous breakfast provisions all offered at a price per head which is more than competitive with local motel units. I could see how it would also serve as a perfect base for business or corporate planning meetings. The setting is peaceful with spacious grounds to meander around and vistas from the hill.

Richard was great to deal with, extremely helpful, friendly & prompt with responses. The house was great, a lot bigger than expected, very clean and perfect for our group of friends. The house & grounds are very spacious, and we thoroughly enjoyed the library - great selection. We loved the house so much we stayed in on the first evening just to enjoy it! Breakfast provisions were generous, and we appreciated the abundance of cutlery & crockery - very well equipped kitchen.
Definitely recommend the property & managers and will use again when in the area.
