Thank you so much for your lovely heartfelt review. As a working hostel we understand that we are not just an accommodation, we are a home for those far from their families who come to our beautiful region to undertake seasonal work. Your review sums up our entire mission for The Grapevine, which is to provide a relaxed, fun, friendly,comforting and inviting environment for working travellers to create fantastic memories and make lifelong friends during their time here. The redecorating is a work in progress so if you are ever passing thru our way again, be sure to call in to say G'day and see how the place is developing.

This is EXACTLY the type of guesthouse I would love to own one day. Stayed there for two months and loved every second of it. Owners/managers Karen and Leanne are now real friends of mine, how many hostels can you say the same? Can't wait to go back after Christmas for round 2!

Hey Sunshine, thanks you so much for your lovely review. Was a pleasure hosting you for so long. I am sure having your new job within the airlines will help you get a great deal to fly back out to our shores again one day. Keep smiling Sunshine!!
