A quick 30-minute drive from the Adelaide Airport will put you in another world filled with romantic imagination and fairytale romance — one that’s perfect for an Australia honeymoon or otherwise romantic vacation. The Thorngrove Manor Hotel is one of South Australia’s award-winning small luxury hotels of the world, and just happens to be the perfect place to stay if you’re visiting Adelaide and South Australia.
This distinctive property, which has a multi-towered castle with turrets and gables to spare, instantly creates a romantic and fantasy mood perfect for the luxury traveler looking for a unique and refreshing experience. Modern amenities are mingled flawlessly with great craftsmanship and flamboyant interiors. The attention to detail is nothing short of meticulous. All the guest areas are unique and guest privacy is paramount. In fact, you may not see another guest the entire time you’re there.
Dining and comfort levels surpass five-star ratings. Dining is private, individual and always relaxing, with the accompaniment of antique sterling silver pieces predating Australia’s settlement. What’s more, the Adelaide Hills region is renowned for its gastronomic diversity. Local organic produce is used extensively, including herbs used straight from the manor’s organic kitchen garden. Eggs are farm fresh from their free-range hens.
Some of the luxurious guest suites include the King’s Chambers (with a dramatic glass-walled, in-suite bathroom overlooking a tranquil pond water feature and terraced and English Box hedged garden), the Queen’s Chambers, the Tower Room and the Observatory. French tapestries, stone spiral staircases, antique furnishings, vaulted ceilings and stone-carved fireplaces make each suite rustic yet incredibly romantic and inviting.
Vintage Chevrolets and Rolls Royce vehicles are available for chauffeured day tours. Premium international wineries are located nearby, as are the historic village of Stirling and many of the best of Australian wildlife parks and sanctuaries. Golfing, museums, even art galleries are just minutes away. Day trips are possible to neighboring McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula, the Clare Valley, Kangaroo Island and the Barossa Valley.
