Have spent a lot of time staying at various B&B's in South Australia and this one still tops my list of places to stay. The retreat is in a lovely location in Basket Hills and is close to several great eating establishments. It's the attention to detail, the little added extras, that make this place a cut above the rest.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon recently, and were blown away by the quality of this place. A lovely garden, sublime views of the hills at the back, bountiful and beautiful food, accessible yet totally secluded - we honestly could not have wanted for more. Thoroughly recommended!

Thank you so much for your great review, and thank you also for being such considerate guests.

Our teenage daughters gave us a weekend holiday at Hillgrove House as a gift - what a treat! We went right at the end of winter, so everything was lush and green, and cool enough for log fires at night, but were blessed with warm days and sunshine, perfect for lounging in the comfortable adirondack chairs on the front lawn...

We never met the owners of this self-contained establishment, but from the moment we arrived we felt welcome and as if we had stepped into a loved home.
