Reviewed 4 January 2014

What a great bed and breakfast this is, in the heart of Mclaren Vale. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The food provided for breakfast was extremely generous and delicious.

Donna and mike were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble.

Will be staying again!

We have attended a number of B&Bs in McLaren Vale but this one tops the lot. An engaging host (Donna) made us extremely welcome. Very close to the wineries and restaurants with a swimming pool and tennis court on site. The breakfast supplies were more than we could eat and were supplemented daily with home made fresh bread. Normally we do not expect servicing of the rooms daily in B&Bs however Donna attended to this while we were out. The cleanliness of the room was exceptional with all of the facilities we needed. This is a superb B&B and we highly recommend.

Found this charming Bed & Breakfast, nestled in the heart of the McLaren Vale vineyards, just by chance. What a wonderful find! Despite my wife falling sick and just wanting to lie around for a couple of days, the new pool provided a wonderful diversion. The hosts are charming and the fresh bread delivery by one if their young children each morning is just sweat. Breakfast supplies, for self-preparation in you own kitchenette, was frankly overwhelming in its generosity, especially with a wife just nibbling at her food! Just two, independent rooms, make this a quiet and restful place to stop. The wine on all sides make this area a gourmands delight.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms.

We loved our weekend at Amande. Mike and Donna are lovely people and we felt very welcome. Their recommendations were spot on, and this part of South Australia is just wonderful: try Coriole, Woodstock, and D'Arenberg wineries - only a few of the many gorgeous cellar doors in the area.
We stayed in Lavender which was very peaceful. The room was very nice with pretty furnishings and it had everything we needed. The breakfast provisions were generous and of high quality. Unlike other B&B's that are part of family properties, Amande has its own guest carport away from the main house so we never felt we were bothering anyone. Though we didn't use the tennis court and swimming pool available on the property, these looked very attractive! When our car broke down and we couldn't get a cab back after dinner, Mike even got out of bed to give us a lift and couldn't have been nicer about it.
We can't speak more highly of Amande. Thanks again Mike and Donna, hope you have a great summer season in beautiful McLaren Vale. Wish I were coming back already.

Room Tip: Both cottages are very nice, but the hens like to hang out outside Lavender just in case you don'...

What a beautiful place to stay and visit the vineyards of McLaren Vale!
We stayed for 3 nights in 'Absinthe' cottage. Everything is done to a very high standard...the furnishings, very comfortable bed and plenty of breakfast provisions...sausages, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms etc and a freshly baked loaf every morning!! Even a little patio to sit on and look at the vineyards, whilst you eat. Donna and Mike are lovely people and very helpful with suggestions on where to eat and which vineyards to visit. Highly recommended.

From first contact via phone with helpful hints on the unique one way freeway to the wave goodbye from a family who made everything easy, comfortable and non-intrusive..we enjoyed! The drive in via the vineyards set a peaceful scene and the only stress was deciding who cooked the offerings in the well stocked fridge and who poured the glass of port on the verhanda. Although the adjoining cottage was also booked we weren't really aware of our neighbours and Lavendar cottage certainly seemed private. Cosy, clean...thoughtful. Lots to do, or you can just sit and think. Need a car. Thank you

After looking at every bed and breakfast in the area we crossed our fingers and booked this one. We were so happy we did! We enjoyed perfect service from the time we booked until the we reluctantly departed. We booked both cottages to stay with another couple when we attended a wedding nearby and they were both equally charming. The furnishings were lovely and the beds were so comfortable, we slept like logs! Upon arrival, Donna was extremely helpful with suggestions for places nearby to have a quick lunch before the wedding. We returned from our wedding to find a lovely bottle of port and chocolates and a fridge full of provisions for breakfast, including freshly baked bread. We rose the next morning and barbequed our breakfast in the gardens and ate in the beautiful courtyard with our companions. I would definitely recommend booking at Amande, you won't be dissappointed!
