Apple & Grape Motel
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Stanthorpe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 16, 2013

My husband and I have returned to the Apple & Grape Motel, again attracted by the convenient location and the value for money accommodation. The Apple & Grape is the perfect place to experience Stanthorpe and the surrounding area,especially the wineries.

We were served a country style breakfast to our room – hot & delicious! Whilst the temperature outside was in the minus zone, the room was comfortably warm with electric blankets which kept us warm through the chilly night.

The owners, Helen and Steve, are great hosts and very helpful when advice was needed. They have made a lot of improvements since our last visit in 2012 with the modernisation of the rooms. They are fresh and particulary clean.

We have no doubt we will be back … again!

Room Tip: Should you have the need for a room for disabled access, one is available on request.

I travel for work purposes quite often and have been staying at the Apple and Grape for many years now. I find Helen and Steve to be the most hospitable Managers of any motel I have ever stayed at. They are always happy to help in any way and nothing is ever too much trouble for them. The rooms have been recently redecorated and are very comfortable, quite and clean. The location is perfect for me as it is close to everything and is also nice and handy to the walking paths and shops. I have no hesitation in recommending this motel to anyone be it for someone single, couples or families as the rooms cater for all types of travellers.

Motel was obviously built in the 1980s and has had a recent external refurb. Seems like nothing has changed internally apart from the flat screen TV and the bed linen. Room was very clean though, and it was much appreciated to find the room heating already on. Bathroom was clean and functional, but had one of those annoying shower heads that are at shoulder level and the water temperature was hard to get just right. Location is perfect being on the edge of the town's CBD, and no road noise was discernible. Hosts very friendly and accommodating, plenty of parking (some undercover) and overall good value.

A renovating work in progress and what a wonderful establishment is emerging, warm, clean and comfortable, and very quiet. Steve and Helen are excellent hosts. Warm in winter & cool in summer. Close to local restaurants.

Room Tip: Stay a bit longer and take a wine tour

But warm & toasty in room 20....beautiful big room, can sleep 4. Beautiful decor, very comfortable just like staying at home. Warm reverse cycle aircon. Minus 2 deg outside, but we didn't know it. Watch the big icicles melt off the car port, whilst you sit in the sun outside. Many thanks to Helen & Steve for a lovely home away from home. See you next time. :)

Room Tip: room 20 sleeps four, large room & big open bathroom

What a lovely little Motel. The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. The place was immaculate, clean clean clean....
The shower was of great pressure and the shower head was at a perfect height so I didn't need to wet my hair. Comfortable, warm and right in the centre of town so you can stroll to everything. The bed was comfortable which is most important to us as we have bad backs. We could sit outside our rooms and have a coffee in the morning and a wine before retiring.very private and we will definitely stay again. Good old country hospitality....
