“A little bit of Germany”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

You can't go wrong with staying at Muscatels. Everything is wonderful, the room, the bathroom, the beds, the breakfast, the location from the village. We love staying in Germany and for us, it is like visiting Germany all over again. Muscatels is our favourite bed and breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the house have a wonderful view of the Gold Coast

Thank you Stephan & Marion for such a relaxing stay. Absolutely beautiful lodge, short walk from Gallery Walk and tiny walk from national park circuit walk, but that's not the only reason to stay. Stephan & Marion are so friendly and attentive without ever crossing the 'privacy invasion line', and the whole lodge is full of beautiful spaces full of lovely art and interesting objects. Our room was a great size, super comfy, very private, and balcony with views to GC. And an enormous bathroom with an actual proper 2 seater spa - all absolutely spotless. And this might sound like a minor point, but there are just no signs up or anything about curfews or house rules, etc. Everything very calm and relaxing. Recommend Superior Spa Room but all lovely rooms. And the breakfast was just sensational. A very different holiday to our usual trip to Surfers' but we found a perfect place to stay and we had a great time. I can't recommend Muscatel's highly enough and we can't wait to come back. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Not only the hosts were excellent hosts, the photos of the B&B we saw online didn't do justice to what we actually found there. The rooms are spacious, as well as the bathroom (we had the deluxe spa room), and not a speck of dust was to be found anywhere. The whole place is very carefully decorated, without being overstated; the living room in particular feels very comfy and welcoming. Had we had a bit more time there we would've spent more hours reading from Stephan and Maureen's small library by the fireplace. Needless to say, the food was delicious; homemade and hearty. Muscatels is within easily walking distance from the main attractions in Mt. Tamborine.

Hosts Stephan and Maureen are the lynchpins for this remarkable B&B. From Stephan meeting us in the carpark on arrival to Maureen's home made jam, fresh fruit salad and bircher muesli, and delicious omelette, we felt like honoured guests. Books and magazines available to borrow, lovely restful music, beautifully kept gardens, privacy assured - we highly recommend Muscatels to the most fastidious traveller.

Stephan and Marion are fantastic hosts, great breakfast, fastidious attention to detail, spotless throughout. Tamborine Mountain forest walk just outside the door. A great walk before breakfast. Birdlife galore, wallabies and a fantastic forest. Quiet and extremely comfortable lodgings. Will be back...

Thanks to the reviews on this page, we decided to stay here. We needed a small getaway. No one could say a bad thing about this place. From the moment we turned up to the moment we left, the service was outstanding. Stephan even came out to greet us as our car entered the car park. He and his wife Marion shook our hands and showed us around their beautiful abode, which is immaculate and has gorgeous furnishings. The place is a close walk to restaurants and the cheese factory. We went out for dinner to liquid amber and came back to a bed that had been made,and chocolates atop our pillows (and they were fantastic chocolates). We then had a spa bath, only to find that our towels had been heated! The room was gorgeous, the place was clean, quiet, classy and homely. The breakfast and coffee the next morning was amazing. Home made Bircher muesli, incredible little sausages, assorted meats, incredible mulberry jam and omelette, freshly brewed coffee... and not only that but Marion has an incredible talent carving wood. Anyway, as you can see i could go on - very friendly, hospitable, lovely people and we will be back again! :) Nick and Wen

What a wonderful place to stay. Couldn't be faulted! Stephan and Marion are wonderful hosts. The rooms just impeccable and beautiful. Breakfast delicious. We travel a lot and this would be one of the best places we have stayed. We would highly recommend this to travellers. Close to the "Gallery Walk". Had a good Greek meal at the restaurant up the road and an excellent meal at "The Polish Place" about 6kms away.
