Murray Gardens Motel & Cottages
Ranked #7 of 8 Hotels in Stanthorpe
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We had a clean, comfortable stay. Stayed for the weekend for a photography trip with a friend - we really just wanted a warm place to come back at night and sleep (which was good). It's also close to the highway (but no traffic noise), so was perfect for quick getaways to the national parks (or wineries!)

Would stay here again and recommend it to others, we were looking for somewhere budget-ish and this was one of the cheaper places we found and weren't disapointed.

Didn't get to use the gym, but saw it and was very impressed for a motel gym!

Hi Guys,
Thank you so much for the review. We are really happy you enjoyed your stay with us and the breakfast. We don't like having to leave Kobi (our dog) at home when we go away either as they are part of the family so it is a real pleasure that we can offer this option to guests staying with us as well. See you all next time you are down our way.
Kind Regards,
Tammy

We spent the weekend in one of their cottages recently. We arrived late and they had the fire on for us (we chose a cottage with a log fire - they have gas ones too in other cottages). Pretty much all the windows were open though which kinda let all the heat from the lovely fire out! But once closed we go cosy. The bed had electric blankets which is great. One each side of the queen so i could warm up my side more than my husband :) Putting on one or two setting gets the bed nice and warm before you get in. The cottage was cute. Quite dated and a bit cob webby and dusty just in a couple places if you notice that sort of thing. Ours had a lovely sun trap outside the front door so i spent one morning sitting at the table and chairs outside reading through all the 100s of things we could see and do in Stanthorpe. The table and chairs outside needed a good dust down! But perhaps I am just being pedantic. Bed, kitchen, bathroom all lovely and clean. They do room service too which is great if you cannot bear to go outside away from the fire :) Really nice staff. Very helpful and friendly and they have a lovely dog too which you see from time to time. Nice place to stay and only a couple mins drive from the centre of town. It is the kind of place run by people where nothing it too hard or they wont bend over backwards to help you with.

Room Tip: Ask for a cottage with the sun coming in during the morning in winter. It is nice to let the sun and...

Hi Mares,
Thanks so much for the review. I can't believe that I was that blonde and left your windows open. I'm so sorry. I do remember running around that Friday afternoon trying to get quite a few fires started in between check-ins and I'm obviously forgot that. We usually do close them - sorry. We are in the slow process of trying to update the cottages bit by bit but in the meantime we do strive to keep them as clean as possible. I have already spoken to all staff and we will double check cob webs both inside and out again. Being in the bushland setting that we are, the little 8 legged critters and us are constantly at war but perhaps it is time for another dousing of spray on the verandahs. We do clean the outside settings each and every clean also but can find that only a few hours later, they could do with another one on somedays, depending on the weather - but again we will double check on these as well. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you so much for bringing these issues to our attention as we will endeavour to only improve.
Kind Regards,
Tammy

Motel Room for one night was clean and reasonably priced.
The staff was very friendly and helpful upon check in.
The bed was comfortable and linen crisp and white.
Bathroom clean.
Pretty cozy feel for a motel room but I would probably go for a cottage next time as they come with a fireplace.

Hi Claire,
Thank you for your feedback and I'm really happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Don't forget when you book next time for the cottage to request the woodfire as some of our cottages also have gas heating for those guests wanting the more instant heating option. Thanks again for taking the time to enter up your feedback. Have a super day. :-)
Regards,
Tammy

This was the second time my wife and I have stayed at Murray Gardens. On both occasions the service has been absolutely excellent and we have found the rooms to be very clean, comfortable and roomy. We tow a 10M trailer and parking was never a problem. Anytime we are in need of accommodation in this area we will be back.

Hi Guys,
Thank you for the wonderful feedback. We are very fortunate to have so much space around us. It certainly doesn't feel like your average motel and that is great for us living and working here too. Looking forward to seeing you on your next run through Stanthorpe. Have a great day.
Kind Regards,

Stayed one night on the way through from NSW. Was pleasently suprised to fine the fire going and the cottage allrady nice and warm. Great for family of 4, on the edge of town, being self contained with a full kitchen was a must for us travelling with little kids. Fairly modern with a flat screen TV and enough space for us. Staff were freindly and I can't think of anything bad to say...
