Hi we stayed in the Isabella cottage, very well maintained, enough room for five adults or four adults and two children. Very clean and plenty of room.

Kitchen facilities need to be upgraded but even with the current equipment it is very good. The stove works well but needs to be replaced.

Good comfortable furniture.

Room Tip: A very good alternative to a motel room if you are on a budget. Shared costs.

A Splendid Motel,with top qualities. We stayed in a family room and were delighted to find children's books ,beautifully set out for the use of young ones and pictures featuring "Teddy Bear" themed photos.This is unique as I have not seen a family room so equipped before.
Two single and one queen beds with fresh linen and electric blankets together with air-con made for a good rest.
A small well set out kitchenette,microwave,jug,toaster, china and cutlery made it ideal for a family.Sadly it was only two of us but we found everthing we needed and more.
Tariff is well with-in the economy of the area.A small on site restaurant completes a lovely stay
Plenty of under cover parking and well kept grounds are very pleasant.
You wont find better in Stanthorpe.

Clean and comfortable, with features Aussies expect in a good motel, tea/coffee making facilities for example which you don't get overseas!!!! Good location to see the Granite Belt area. Make sure you visit the Bramble Patch whilst in Stanthorpe.

Allowed an early check in. Had a good night sleep and a lovely breakfast. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It's very conveniently located being close to the main street and tourist information centre. Definitely return.

This was my third stay at The Vines but my last. Our bed was the problem with the electrical blanket box lying in the most stupidest place on top of the bed (see photo). When I finally realized what was digging into my back, we spent about 10 mins trying to disconnect the cords but to no success. We then had to strip down the entire bed to remove the layer connected with the box close to the mattress. This was an exhausting exercise at 11pm and when mentioned at check out, did not even receive an apology for my troubles! Nothing! It was as if the man at the desk (Clinton) did not believe us! I expected an apology at least if not a discount of some sort to ensure our return. But nothing positive at all was received and we left feeling stupid to have stayed there again. We also had to use the lights from our mobiles to unlock our doors on the top level due to their verandah lights not being on. Climbing the stairwells at night is a definate safety issue waiting to happen!

Room Tip: If you must stay there, a room on the ground so you don't fall on ths steps in the darkness.

Good standard for a 3.5 star hotel. This was our third stay, always very happy. Nice breakfast room, room a good size and well appointed. Small bathroom but functional. The hotel is across the river from the town, but is still only a short walk. Also not far to walk from the famous Anna's restaurant. We would say it was probably the best standard hotel in the town area.

Right near the river and centre of town, the hotel itself was clean, comfortable, with beautiful gardens, a warm welcome and awesome breakfast! Stanthorpe itself is beautiful, wineries and restaurants good. The drive around new englad area up to Stanthorpe was amazing with green rolling mountains the whole way! I'd definitely go back!
