“Awesome location, great breakfast and friendly service”
Reviewed 10 December 2012 via mobile

Right near the river and centre of town, the hotel itself was clean, comfortable, with beautiful gardens, a warm welcome and awesome breakfast! Stanthorpe itself is beautiful, wineries and restaurants good. The drive around new englad area up to Stanthorpe was amazing with green rolling mountains the whole way! I'd definitely go back!

Stayed December 2012, travelled with friends

We stayed one night at this motel in the middle of a long road trip. It could not have been better - a light and spacious, well-appointed room; quiet - located back from the highway. The owners were pleasant, friendly and helpful. They recommended an excellent restaurant nearby for dinner that would cater for my diet needs as a coeliac; an extra plus in my case. A good breakfast was served in a comfortable dining room. The Vines is on my 'must stay' list.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the complex, away from the road, which made it very quiet.

We spent one night in The Vines Motel and it was great. The owners are extremely friendly. You can certainly you are in the country and that the owners are country folk because they are friendly and don't dismiss you like you don't matter. We had breakfast on the Sunday morning in the dining room and it was lovely. We were then given a tour of the 2 cottages that form part of the complex and they are beautifully decorated. We'll be back for sure. So much to see and do apart from the wineries.

We normally stay elsewhere when in Stanthorpe however decided to try this place due to the location and close proximity to Anna's restaurant (which we were wanting to try). The rooms seem clean and fairly standard for a hotel however we believe the service could use alot of improvement. My husband went into the bathroom in the middle of the night and the door handle broke which meant he was stuck in there. After a few hours of attempting to get him out I phoned reception from the room phone. The women who answered seemed unhappy at being woken up however attended the room with a knife for my husband to use to break out of there. This incident meant that we had approximately 4 hours sleep for the night and it ruined our weekend. Upon checking out, there was no apology or offer made to make things right (free breakfast or discount on next stay etc) and she seemed more pee'd off about being woken up than concerned for us. It is only fortunate I think that we were not travelling alone or that our young child went to the bathroom and closed the door. There are much better and places to stay with friendly staff in Stanthorpe.

My partner is a rep so sometimes I get to travel around the countryside and visit little places i normally wouldnt and one of the stand out little hotels was "The Vines" in Stanthorpe. Its a busy little place with a restaurant and lots of rooms, very popular with tourist and business people alike. The rooms are very clean and the beds comfy, staff are pleasant and service is good. If you are ever in Stanthorpe I highly recommend this hotel. I will be back in March for the biyearly Apple and Grape fest, definitley not to be missed.
