John & Penny were lovely hosts. The cottages were beautifully presented in stunning gardens and boasted plush bath sheets! Yes, sometimes it's the little things. The cafe had a wonderful menu. The food was fantastic and the fireplace was a cosy place for after dinner drinks. Highly recommended.

We stayed in both the queen cottage and king terrace both are lovely I loved the privacy if having your own cottage surrounded by gorgeous gardens with a newspaper on your door to start the day. The king terrace had more of an open plan which was great and roomy. The bed was huge and comfy and the towels are... More

We booked two nights over the Easter break at Vineyard cottages and Cafe. We were not quite sure what to expect. Let me start by saying the website does not do this place justice. The gardens were spectacular! Roses were lovely, wisteria, lavender etc - so lovely and fragrant. The rosemary was flowering too. The rooms were a good size.... More

Driving home to Brisbane after Christmas in Melbourne we decided to take a two day break in the Granite Belt as we had never been there. On arrival after eight hours driving we were given a very friendly welcome by Penny and John. There is an excellent restaurant where we were again served by Penny and John. After a lovely... More

Stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage for 2 nights, used it as a meeting palce to catch up with our daughter for Christmas. The owners John & Penny where perfect hosts with local information & no request was ever too much, even mailing the tarp we left behind back to us. The food was of a high standard & the... More

Beautifully presented cottages in handy location. Back for a second stay, I stayed with several family members and this provided a great base for our wine tasting day trips. Ballandean is in my opinion the best area on the Granite Belt to stay as it's closest to the better wineries. The cafe is so much better than you would ever... More

My partner and I stayed for two nights at the Vineyard Cottages and Café for a romantic getaway. Despite romance being very much alive in Ballandean (or that may have just been the result of a good winery tour), the Cottage’s accommodation and culinary provisions left a lot to be desired. 1. The furnishings were old, unmatched (not in a... More

The title says it all. We stayed here on the October long weekend for a three night getaway with friends. The cottages were spotlessly clean and well appointed with all you need for a relaxing time away. The cottages are close to some brilliant wineries and to be fair they are close to the road, we stayed in the cottage... More
