Thorngrove Country Manor is part of our Adelaide Hills Accommodation collection in South Australia.

Thorngrove Manor Hotel has been a member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World since 1995, ensuring a commitment to excellence. In 1984 the Thorngrove journey began; to create a unique, artistic and idiosyncratic signature boutique hotel providing inspired and meaningful experiences for guests. Eschewing the corporate culture pre-occupied with budget results, glittery excess or formulated success, it was to be an enduring and evolving hotel, profoundly representational of its unique regional landscape, history, amenity, climate and community. The contemporary becomes outmoded and the historic replicated. Traditionally boutique/lodge hotels have predictable cultural lines of service and a commonality of experience, impersonal and institutional corridors, tedious check-in, noise from adjoining rooms, and customary herding to pre dinner drinks and strict dinner regimes.

With an inherent consciousness to differentiate, Thorngrove’ architectural uniqueness provides a dynamic and exquisitely crafted environment in which guests respond, providing a journey beyond the destination. Just as people choose individual clothes, rooms are creative, flexible, evolving and individual, inspired by the architectural tradition of the region. It is a unique multi-towered hotel with an abundance of gables, spires and detailing, creating a mood of escapist fantasy and a timeless sense of history. The pointed arches and turrets, decorative plasterwork and elaborate portico entrances of the architecture, provide romantic and whimsical appeal designed to stimulate the senses and provide interactive architectural encounters. This distinctive and innovative landmark property is a recipient for many awards and accolades for its unique style and professionalism.

The artistic interior reflects rare craftsmanship, featuring select antique pieces, complemented by bespoke artisan-crafted furniture and modern amenities. All guest areas are highly individual with an atmosphere of relaxed informality. Suites are distinguished by their individual character, inspired by tradition, rusticity and elegant timelessness, to rooms of theatrical inspired artistry; all decorated with the utmost attention to detail and with a uniquely Australian contemporary twist. Each suite has been decorated individually to complement the architectural diversity. To highlight the organic nature of the building in selected places the internal structure is presented externally, with rooms open to the structure above.

Iconic architectural personality and visual integrity have continued to attract guests. Privacy is absolute; you may never see the other guests. Safety and security is paramount with gates open only for arrival and departure of guests. A surrounding hedge delineates Thorngrove from the outside world, allowing guests to explore and discover and return “home.”

Dining is private, individual and relaxing, with the unique accompaniment of antique sterling silver pieces predating the Australian settlement. The Adelaide Hills region is renowned for its gastronomic diversity. Local organic and bio-dynamic produce is used extensively.

Run under the personal supervision of the architect and creator, the aim is to ensure each individual guest feels valued. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal. Passion, heart and soul and generosity of spirit ensure the highest degree of attention to detail is assured, with non-intrusive, seamless and responsive personalised service. Guests enjoy a truly unique and generous accommodation experience in an exclusive “country living zone”, with peerless views across the valley to the horizon. Guest numbers are strictly limited to no more than 4 people. The ridge top location is exceptional and connects with the landscape. The location within an historic village community imbues a sense of place, local flavour and belonging.

30 years of passion and dedication have created a globally unique privately owned boutique hotel that has both achieved and maintained a pre-eminent position alongside the world’s best and largest hotels as a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World for the past 19 years. Thorngrove proudly and bravely exists outside the square, or standard hotel category-it is truly unique-an experience for the heart and soul – just not another destination to be ticked off a list. A remarkable boutique hotel responding to people, the environment and imagination. From $899.00 per night.
