We have just spent a fantastic weekend celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in 'Orchid Lodge'. The lodges are a little outside of the main Stanthorpe area but we loved the location of this property as it was both private and set in stunning surroundings (and surrounded by Alpacas!)
The accommodation was of 5* standard - very modern and chic. The lounge was relaxing, with a large modern TV, high spec kitchen, amazingly comfortable bed and a huge modern bathroom (with heat lights and towel warmers). The fridge and cupboards were well stocked with tea, coffee, cereal and cooked breakfast items.
We were initially looking for a place with an open log fire, which Orchard does not have - but in retrospect we are glad we opted for this instead. The cabin has a great central heating system, and there is a fake log fire in the loungeroom which creates the ambience anyways (without the hassle of continually mucking around with a fire and waking up to a freezing cabin in the morning).
The host Margaret is very friendly and informative - she even offered to drive us into town for dinner so that we could both drink.
We had a great time and would not hesitate to stay here again if ever back in Stanthorpe.
