“A great experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

My partner and I have just returned from a two night package staying at the Vines. This was our 3rd visit to this establishment and never have we been let down.

The owners insist on clean well set up rooms, the breakfast they put on in the restaurant is great, you couldn't possibly expect more. Aircon in the unit plus electric blankets meant we were snug when the low winter temperatures hit.

Your cars are under cover and you are but a short walk into the town and the many restaurants around.

We booked the package that included dinner at Anna's Italian Restaurant and the one day Fillipos Vineyard tour. Was good knowing that we could sample different wines without having to consider the numerous police out trying to catch the drinking drivers.

We'll return here again and again.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have a view over the township and are quieter

Three couples stayed at The Vines and we all agreed that the Motel was incredibly clean and comfortable. All staff couldn't do enough to help us and the breakfasts were fabulous. Wouldn't stay any where else on a return visit which we all agreed we would do again soon.

As a motel, The Vines is excellent - good location, clean, everything in the room works, the staff are friendly and helpful - but the highlight was the delicious breakfast! When most motels offer breakfast you expect a bit of dry toast with a packet of spread. The Vines has a lovely continental breakfast selection, but the cooked breakfasts are to die for. Large portions, eggs cooked perfectly, lovely extras such as locally made relish to enjoy with your bacon... I could go on. In my opinion this hotel would rate up there with the best bed-and-breakfasts in Stanthorpe, but for a fraction of the price. I would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous three day weekend at the Vines Motel in Stanthorpe with friendly hosts Jaqlyn and Clinton. We took the 2 day package plus extra night and enjoyed a fun day touring local wineries then retired to our room with included cheese plate washed down with more local wine. The long verandah has little tables and it was lovely to sit and enjoy the twilight and talk over the day. Rooms are a little dated in decor but comfortable and spotlessly clean. A delicious breakfast is included in the package and is the usual continental selection plus a hot cooked choice. The motel is easy walking to the town and Anna's well known restaurant. Altogether a fabulous weekend not far from Brisbane or the Gold Coast.

Room Tip: All the rooms I have stayed in were of similar high standard however, motel is two levels so if stai...

This is my second time here and got to say "love it". There's a BBQ courtyard that is brilliant and if you want to know anything about the Granite Belt, what to see, do, eat or anything Jaclyn will help you. She has the most amazing local knowledge and you won't be disappointed.

Rooms are clean and well kept and the 'cottage' house we stayed in is great. It's an old Qld style house that takes you back in time. Just loved it.

Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Jaclyn was prompt in replying to my emails and helpfully suggested to take daylight saving into account since we were travelling from NSW. We arrived late and ravenous, having driven from Armidale and mistakenly thinking Tenterfield would have something open (we drove past Maccas in Glen Innes) on the main street. Jaclyn told me to ring at 8 to have a better idea of our ETA, and was really accommodating. Her directions were good - just before the town, on the left, opp Holden. We checked in quickly and had a choice of a Chinese or Thai restaurant, Macca's or Red Rooster - they closed at 9pm.
The Family room (no. 26) was clean - small kitchenette (microwave, toaster, kettle, bar fridge + UHT jiggers but fresh milk avail), cutlery, crockery, cups, mugs, wine & other glasses, sharp knife, some utensils (incl corkscrew), a few hardback kids' books and a little toy vehicle on the top shelf. There were also 4 packets of bikkies; Anzacs and Macadamia ones were pronounced the best - we all had to try the other varieties to be sure. There was a ?1m diameter table and 4 chairs inside, with another table & 2 chairs outside. The beds were firm and had electric blankets.
The air-conditioning unit was noisy, but we opened the screened windows and it was quiet on a Thurs night despite being on the road into town. .There were 3 Foxtel movie channels and Foxsports, in addition to the usual free channels.
Breakfast (7-8.30) was a leisurely eatfest in the dining room - we had a buffet of 4 cereals, fresh fruit salad, tinned peaches, prunes, vanilla yoghurt, dripfiltered coffee, tea, 3 juices, bread which could be toasted - sourdough white and multigrain - and accompanying spreads. followed by a hot component of our choice (eg eggs benedict, bacon & mushrooms, BLT,a huge bacon/chipolatas/poached eggs/mushrooms... and others). From the smoky sweet taste, the mushrooms were caramelised in the bacon pan; a bit sweet but better with Worcestershire sauce. Fantastic value for $20 each, considering the continental breakfast was $14. We skipped lunch and had a late dinner that night.
The dining room had a great collection of sports memorabilia, historical items, and some Christmas-themed items, while the ladies' loo had an eclectic collection of handbags - you really should see the Elvis one and the joke on another.
It would have been nice to be able to stay longer; the surrounding gardens were well-kept, and there was a good-humoured, relaxing air about the place. And Anna's has buffets on Fri/Sat nights.

A large group of 11 of us stayed in the 2 cottages whilst visiting the region for a weekend. We found the location to be ideal and the cottages neat, comfortable and welcoming. The management were knowledgable, friendly and extremely accommodating. We will be back!
