  • Martindale Hall is a stunning historical property nestled in the heart of the Clare Valley, South Australia. The rooms are steeped in family history, well worth the visit!
  • Magnificent,70percent original furnishings etc. Guide was very informative, and friendly. History information placed in rooms. A must to visit.
  • Martindale Hall is still open to visitors, despite the false advertising about it being closed to the public, by the previous tennants. Highly recommended to see if you are in the area, only $12 per adult entry fee and you are able to take your own photos (without flash). Fantastic piece of SA history and well worth the time and money.
  • Hi! what experience had interstate visitors and brought them up to the Clare Valley with Martindale Hall our first port of call to find it not open on Tuesday yet the printout off the computer said it is open everyday. I was embarassed, disappointed and disgusted in this world of technology that you can't provide up to date information of opening times.
  • Loved this place, I should have spent more time absorbing the whole atmosphere rather than just snapping photos. I may just go back :)
