“Comfortable stay in centre of town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

Motel was obviously built in the 1980s and has had a recent external refurb. Seems like nothing has changed internally apart from the flat screen TV and the bed linen. Room was very clean though, and it was much appreciated to find the room heating already on. Bathroom was clean and functional, but had one of those annoying shower heads that are at shoulder level and the water temperature was hard to get just right. Location is perfect being on the edge of the town's CBD, and no road noise was discernible. Hosts very friendly and accommodating, plenty of parking (some undercover) and overall good value.

A renovating work in progress and what a wonderful establishment is emerging, warm, clean and comfortable, and very quiet. Steve and Helen are excellent hosts. Warm in winter & cool in summer. Close to local restaurants.

Room Tip: Stay a bit longer and take a wine tour

But warm & toasty in room 20....beautiful big room, can sleep 4. Beautiful decor, very comfortable just like staying at home. Warm reverse cycle aircon. Minus 2 deg outside, but we didn't know it. Watch the big icicles melt off the car port, whilst you sit in the sun outside. Many thanks to Helen & Steve for a lovely home away from home. See you next time. :)

Room Tip: room 20 sleeps four, large room & big open bathroom

We are pleased that you enjoyed your 'frosty weekend' in Stanthorpe. We could not have planned the lovely weather you experienced, it really was a perfect winter weekend in Stanthorpe. We are glad you enjoyed your 'home away from home' and that the facilities in the room met your expectations.
Thank you for taking the time to write about our motel - we look forward to seeing you again.

What a lovely little Motel. The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. The place was immaculate, clean clean clean....
The shower was of great pressure and the shower head was at a perfect height so I didn't need to wet my hair. Comfortable, warm and right in the centre of town so you can stroll to everything. The bed was comfortable which is most important to us as we have bad backs. We could sit outside our rooms and have a coffee in the morning and a wine before retiring.very private and we will definitely stay again. Good old country hospitality....

We have just spent 3 delightful days in Stanthorpe, staying at the Apple and Grape Motel. A very warm welcome from our hosts, Helen and Steve, who put themselves out to ensure that we were comfortable. The unit was spotlessly clean and contained everything we needed, and under cover parking iwas readily available. A stones throw from all the shops and also to a wonderful stroll along the Quart Pot Creek.Very quiet and and comfortable, and we, in our 80s, recommend this motel both for couples and for families.

We are delighted that you spent a 'great 3 days' at the Apple & Grape Motel in Stanthorpe. We were more than happy to attend to your needs and pleased that your room and its facilites met your expectations. We agree, we are ideally located in the town which is a bonus for getting around on foot - both to the shopping precinct and the delightful Quart Pot Creek.
We look forward to seeing you again so that we can extend our hospitality once again and offer you another 'great stay'
Kind regards

Our stay at the Apple & Grape Motel was relaxing. We found the room to be well appointed and very clean with a comfortable bed and plenty of space to move around in. The owners and staff were very helpful and informative with regard to eateries in the area and sight seeing. The position of the motel is within easy walking distance of a lot of good restaurants and we found it to be very quiet. We would recommend this motel to anyone and will certainly be returning there in the future.

We stayed there last year in the upstairs family room. This time we got the downstairs room - still spacious and comfortable. Whilst it may not be very modern, the place is spotlessly clean, so you do not get the "old" feeling in it.
We had brought our own breakfast food and needed crockery & cutlery (not supplied in the units), which was happily supplied when we requested it from the kitchen. The staff is very nice and helpful.
Will stay there again, no doubt.
