We stayed for a night. After a day of driving around there was plenty of things for our daughter to enjoy, like the hammocks, find the snails, chess & the jumping pillow. I could've stayed on the hammock all day. The grounds are really nice, so different to staying in a hotel on a main road. We took our telescope... More

Have stayed here a couple of times now.. Good honest country accommodation, reasonable sized cabins with a wood fire that is great for those winter nights like you experience in July If you think you need the Ritz at all times this isn't for you but for those with more realistic day to day expectations this will tick the boxes....

Stayed three nights in motel room. Clean, functional and well-maintained. Great place to stay if on the road with kids. Plenty of grounds for them to run and play in a bush setting. Good facilities for them- pool, table tennis, volleyball, kangaroo jumper (which was very good). Also a good idea was the communal kitchen with outdoor (covered) eating area.... More

Our family of 4, parents and 14yr and 8yr olds stayed 1 night in "Bartholomew", one of the motel rooms. Clean, quiet and functional, albeit modest in decor. The kids were able to burn off their extra energy with swimming, the bouncing pillow, and ping pong, while we enjoyed some refreshments at the picnic tables and watched. There was also... More

Great little cottage fully self contained. Two bedrooms was spacious enough for four adults a baby and a dog. The wood fire was so easy to light and keep going and very cosy to sit around. The gardens would be great with children as they had plenty of things for them to do including a bouncing pillow that was kept... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a motel room. Rooms were a bit tired and the bathroom small. They definitely need renovating. Room has heating and air conditioning. There is a toaster and microwave in the room as well as tea/coffee making facilities. Quiet location not far from town. Expansive grounds. On the negative side the electric blanket on one of... More

This place is just a 2 min drive to the centre of stanthorpe, so it is very central. We stayed in one of the cottages. It contained everything we needed and was clean and quiet. However... When you think of cottages you think of stone huts, fire places, armchairs, four-poster beds and cushions/blankets everywhere. This was not what the cottages... More

Hi Andrew, Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback. I understand that it may have not been what you were expecting and I'm sorry to hear that. They were called 'Country Cottages' initially and I dropped the 'Country' in fear of people expecting something different but I was stuck after that. To me, personally, when I think... More

Great place for families, couples or singles. Motel rooms whilst a bit dated, they are clean and certainly will keep you warm on those cold winter nights. Giant jumping pillow for kids, search and find activities, giant checker board, ping pong and gym all available - small hire fee maybe charged. Excellent bbq facilities and many a sight for marsh...

As a family of 5 needing a short break, this was the perfect location! We stayed in a cottage - "Tammy" - and it was wonderful to open the doors to a warm fire. The cottage had everything we needed, including electric blankets which were a real novelty for the kids! The children had a ball exploring the grounds, searching... More

Hi Erin, Thank you for your feedback. It is wonderful for us to hear that you and your family enjoyed your time here with us. We often joke that we can't work out whether the kiddies enjoy the 'Snail Hunt', the 'Giant Bouncing Cushion' or 'Kobi' more as reception is often filled with little people giving our pooch lots of...
