We recently celebrated my husband’s birthday by staying at Beresford Estate for a much needed getaway. We began by having lunch at the Vale Brewing Restaurant - incredible! We then stayed in one of the luxury suites and the luxury far surpassed any of my imaginings. We have also stayed in the villas and they are lovely as well. The staff are amazing at Beresford but in particular I want to thank Samantha for her attentiveness and kindness.MaikeMaike ★★★★★ We visited Beresford to have an Aperitivo on our Winetrail before heading to Currant Shed.

They worked very closely with the rest of the wedding vendors to provide a very stunning and beautiful venue for our special day despite our various specific requirements!The ceremony in the Pepper Tree lawns was breath-taking and the weather allowed us to use the Grenache plaza as a dance floor.

Birdie 70Birdie 70 ★★★★★ We went for a wine tasting at Beresford as part of a birthday celebration day out in McLaren Vale. Faye’s service was exemplary. She was so friendly. She showed us the accommodation first and I’ll definitely be adding that to my wish list. It’s stunning! The location is so picturesque. The tasting room was warm and inviting, despite the cold weather outside. The wines in the tasting were delicious. Faye was very knowledgeable and there was a good balance between her talking with us and leaving us to enjoy the wine. I’d highly recommend Beresford to people visiting McLaren Vale. Thank you Faye for such a brilliant experience.Response from the ownerThank you so much for the review! we are very lucky to have Faye as part of our team, so glad she looked after you Dorothy SpencerDorothy Spencer ★★★★☆ Our first visit...lovely lunch...service great.

Hayden ThomHayden Thom ★★★★★ Can't recommend Beresford enough. Accomodation is fabulous, every little detail/want has been taken into account. Wine tasting in the bottom pavilion was lovely, sit and watch the kangaroos run through the vines. On staff recommendation we went up the hill to The Vale Taphouse for gin tasting and an amazing sunset. Then had a magnificent 3 course dinner that was devine. It's such a great set up with staff happily driving you up and down the hill so you can both relax and enjoy your time. There is NOTHING too difficult for their amazing staff, all so friendly and knowledgeable and just make your stay perfect. We came to McLaren Vale for the weekend to explore but ended up staying 80% of the time at Beresford as we just wanted to soak in all they offer. We've decided a yearly stay here is a must...the heated plunge pool on a cold day was fabulous. Perfect place to unwind with everything you need within the estate.Response from the ownerHi Hayden, thank you so much for the wonderful review! we are so happy you had an amazing time and can't wait to see you next year! thanks again, Team Beresford Naomi CrosbyNaomi Crosby ★★★★★ Beautiful venue, wonderful welcoming staff.
