“Ballandean Tavern”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

I have stayed at the Tavern many times - the accommodation is cheap but I have no idea why - the rooms are great. They are clean, spacious and quiet. And the food at the tavern is hearty and awesome. I took my mother with me one time, and her dietary requirements were met for her meal with no fuss or problems. It's actually quite a buzz staying there on a State of Origin night - with the border so close, there was a great mix of both QLD and NSW supporters there to watch the game and encourage some friendly banter and rivalry! I highly recommend the Tavern!

Although not staying here (we were staying on a farm nearby), we visited the Ballandean Tavern Motel for dinner after a long day out exploring Girraween National Park. A friendly welcome in the bar was followed by good, filling food in the dining area. Both the bar and restaurant area were clean and tidy, and the service good. It appears to be the sort of place that is used by locals as well as visitors to the area. Had we been staying in the area longer we would certainly have come back here again.

We did not stay here, instead we stopped in for dinner one night at the Tavern...then returned the next night as the food was so good! Loved the Chicken Caesar Salad (I ordered with dressing on the side). The local rangers frequent this establishment, so managed to find out a little more about the native wildlife and what they are doing in the area. It was great! They had a fire going, so it was also very cosy. Tidy, fresh decor.

We made a last minute booking to stay at the Tavern because we could only get away for 1 night. Staying in Ballandean rather than Tenterfield or Stanthorpe was the much better choice as we spent most of our weekend in Girraween which is just down the road.

There are only 4 rooms at the Tavern but what they lack in quantity they more than make up for in quality. The rooms are large, clean and very well maintained. For the price they are a bargain and you would struggle to find better service anywhere else.

We had dinner at the Tavern and it was great food. And it was no trouble or extra charge to have entrees delivered to the room as we were waiting for a phone call. I would definitely stay at the Tavern again when we come to the area.

The Ballandean Tavern is approximately 25 kilometres south of the Stanthorpe turn-off on the New England Highway. Alternatively it is approximately 17 kilometers north of Wallangarra. The hotel is is a family friendly establishment with great atmosphere, good food, friendly staff and interesting locals. The motel units are spacious, modern and very,very clean. The owners, Ian and Stephanie are on site and the smallest request is never a bother. We have stayed several times and would not hesitate to recommend the hotel and motel to every-one.

I recently booked the motel rooms at the ballandean tavern for my husband and I. I was taken back when we opened the door to our room on how lovely and clean it was and how well it was done. It was just beautiful. The meals are just fantastic to. Ian and Steph are great host and if you are looking for a night away and not wanting to spend to much then this is the place. You won't go pass this for service. I highly recommened them in every aspect. I will be coming back again for sure. Brad and Peta Grogan

Hi there, my husband & i just spent the night at the Ballandean Tavern in Ballandean, Granite Belt and can highly recommend it as accom if you're in the area. I looked into lots of different accom for the Sat nite, but most were for a min of 2 nite stay and expensive. If you're not looking for a real 'experience' with that olde worlde charm or a private little cottage on a pretty estate, then book into the tavern. It's brand new, lovely BIG rooms, sparkling clean, modern tasteful decor, great big modern bathroom. The rooms are out the back of the tavern and noise was not an issue at all (in fact we drove back from din about 10.00pm and the tavern looked almost empty on a sat nite). Don't even consider staying in Stanthorpe, daggy... all the $120 motels looked ancient, tired and in need of a complete overhaul.
The tavern was only $110 p.n. really, i can't recommend it highly enough, we would definately go back to stay if in the region.
