It was a lovely place to stay at the end of our road trip before we went home. Lovely cottage, quiet and tranquil. Will be staying again here. Cannot fault them and recommend them to anyone looking for a place to stay in Stanthorpe.

Gorgeous Gardens

The cottages are located very close to Girraween National Park and local wineries. The gardens are beautiful and we took some lovely photos in them. The inside of the cottage was clean but simple. The cottage was well-heated. Ours didn't have a kitchenette - just a kettle and fridge, but the owners provided us with a microwave and toaster. The restaurant serves lovely food.

Beautiful Gardens

Pros: We loved the cottage gardens. We came in around 10.00pm and that was fine. We received a phone call to let us know the key would be in the door and where to go. The room was clean and mostly comfortable.
Cons: We found the bed hard but we like a soft to medium mattress. Many people like a firm bed so would find it great.
Location: The location was nice and close to the wineries of Ballendean and only a shortish drive to all the other attractions of Stanthorpe.

requires a few tweaks to be good value

We had a relaxing stay at Vineyard cottages recently. It was central and comfortable . However not as private as hoped with staff & fellow guests walking around on your front porch ( a lovely outlook but apparently not private?) We were also put next to the septic system which smelt terrible. My husband being a plumber said there really was no excuse for this and he was quite annoyed to cope with that at $245 per night without breakfast !! We will be looking at other options next time as we didn't feel overall it was quite what we had expected for a romantic weekend away.

Great location, great service and great food. We visited here last year and were very happy to return here. Management are very pleasant and the grounds are very pretty. Would return here without hesitation.
