“Great little hotel in the country”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

My partner is a rep so sometimes I get to travel around the countryside and visit little places i normally wouldnt and one of the stand out little hotels was "The Vines" in Stanthorpe. Its a busy little place with a restaurant and lots of rooms, very popular with tourist and business people alike. The rooms are very clean and the beds comfy, staff are pleasant and service is good. If you are ever in Stanthorpe I highly recommend this hotel. I will be back in March for the biyearly Apple and Grape fest, definitley not to be missed.

Have stayed in Stanthorpe over many years and probably stayed at every Motel. The Vines really is the best venue and value by far. Its a typical motel room but with plenty of room, full size bar fridge,toaster, plates and cutlery. Sliding doors lead out to a small balcony or terrace.
The owners have taken the trouble to landscape the motel premises with a lovely selection of plants and trees. The motel in also very convenient for walking into town for the local pubs or restaurants or a very nice walk through the Quart Pot creek walking trail. Highly recommended.,

Isabella cottage - Rooms looked neat but then u have the fire alarm pushed into wall, grotty scary back yard kids can't run around as to many broken fences rusty and prickles galore. Washing machine leaks water - electrical hazard. No pegs had to buy our own. Empty box of washing detergent. No hanging rack for clothes inside.
Hole size of a softball in wall next to bed in main.
Husband sat in seat and it broke.
When informed reception at 9am mouse had pooed in kitchen and eaten our stuff @ $250 a night you think they would come straight around and replace it and fix the problem. Nope 2:40pm and no one in sight. Managed by "the slack family" yep slack would be right! Completely unimpressed. Wouldn't make 3 stars.

Comfortable motel within walking distance to the Stanthorpe CBD. Rooms spacious, tea and coffee facilities provided along with complimentary biscuits. No need to worry about the cold weather with rooms fitted with air conditioners and beds with electric blankets. Italian restaurant "Anna's" 100 metres up the road, but if you don't want to walk they will do room service if given notice. Ornamental vines around motel terraces well maintained adding to comfortable, cozy, homely feel. Owners extremely friendly - will go out of their way to assist and cater to your needs. Say hello to the owners dog which happily wanders around.

Apparantly new owners in last year or so. An excellent efficient motel, spacious rooms and comparable services to those we are used to in the UK from big chains, but far more personal attention. Gardens are well tended and surprising for this type of establishment - one owner a keen gardener. Offers an overnight package with voucher for local restaurant "Anna"s" about 100 yards away and a bottle of wine; (Italian style with range of steaks and other meat dishes, but huge portions - you only need a main course and the voucher easily covers for 2 people. Good breakfast that sets you up for the day in the motel included in price of package.

After the 3 hours drive from the Gold Coast I was extremely happy to arrive in Stanthorpe and be greeted with a wonderful smile and picturesque surroundings. Beautiful roses and grape vines entwined throughout the motel gave it that wine region feeling.
The family who has now taken over where fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and the home made breakfast was just what I needed after a big day on the wine tours.
The rooms were very clean and had everything I needed, and I did like the small touches that made it my home for 2 days.

I am not quite sure what people are on about. I found this motel was lovely and inviting with a welcoming atmosphere. We stayed in one of the apartments and found it quite comfortable. The beds were firm but not hard and everything was clean and tidy. It also boasts a great location within walking distance to the famous "Anna's" Restaurant. The staff are lovely characters and very helpful. Even though the cottages look a little old , they would be a great size for a family.
