The four and a half star Thorn Park by the Vines is a small boutique hotel located on the edge of Seven Hill in the Clare Valley wine region. The property captures the essence of privacy and peace and has just the right amount of modernity. The living areas are light and open, looking out over spectacular bush and vineyard vistas, superbly furnished with artworks.
The property offers two guest rooms: The White Room and The Yellow Room. The White Room has vistas over the dam and mature eucalypts. It is the larger of the two rooms and has a king size bed. The walls are a soft white and the furnishings include a contemporary floral pattern and sheer muslin drapes which compliment the collection of beautiful antiques and art works. A chaise lounge provides a perfect spot to lay back and relax with a good book. The yellow and blue drapes and lightly sponged yellow walls enhance the chinoiserie feel of The Yellow Room. A collection of botanical prints and Royal Doulton plates adorn the walls and a superb early Australian Huon pine wardrobe and Georgian chest of drawers complement the décor.
The Thorn Park offers superb food. David Hay is a celebrated chef and dinner at the property is to enjoy world-class contemporary Australian cuisine.
