We were 2 x families looking for accommodation to suit 9 of us! The large home with 5 bedrooms suited us perfectly. Lots of space and a large common area to hang out. Jenny and Alan provided us with great hospitality. Especially the very generous and delicious breakfasts that arrived in the mornings. It was lovely to sit and have a large family table and all the great conversations that came from that. Jenny was also wonderful at accommodating our gluten intolerant son with special options for him!

We stayed at Glen Aplin Gardens B&B for 3 nights and decided to eat in on 2 of those nights. The meals, both dinner and breakfast were an example of excellent home cooking and very plentiful. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Alan and Jenny invited us to join them for an old time movie night on the big screen after dinner. They really went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant and friendly experience. Their hospitality far exceeded our expectations.

I stayed in the King sized room with en suite and it was very comfortable and peaceful. Jenny and Allan were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was plentiful, healthy and tasty with good coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice! Over the 3 days Jenny varied the breakfast each day to keep it interesting. The cafe overlooks the nearby hills and the art gallery has an interesting collection of art that Jenny and Allan have gathered from their travels and work around Australia over many years and from local artists. would highly recommend for a weekend or longer stay.

We stayed in the Australia room which is at the back of the house and very quiet. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and the room was a generous size. The country-style house has been maintained with the inclusion of modern comforts. The bed had electric blankets and there was an electric heater in the room, whilst the bathroom had a heated towel-rail. Very nice for the cool winter nights in Stanthorpe. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The home-baked scones, freshly squeezed orange juice, frittatas and home-made muesli were amazing! Very friendly service and would love to stay again.
