The gardens has a Tesla charger which is why we decided to go to this particular place. Bruce and Jennifer are really lovely people and we will definitely be back on our next family trip to Stanthorpe to enjoy some more old fashioned hospitality.

The accommodation was average, certainly NOT luxury. They advertise as a "Luxury B&B" and it is far from luxurious. The room was tiny, facilities are outdated and very basic. We were charged additional for a room with an ensuite, despite having booked a room with an ensuite on the online booking site. The owner cooks the meals but I recommend you take or prepare your own, as you can use the main house kitchen facilities. If you are after something basic, this is fine, but if you are after luxury, definitely look elsewhere.

We chose this location for proximity to Girraween National Park, and the grounds are lovely. Although there's one bathroom for the place, Bruce made a great effort to make us welcome. Jennifer his wife, on the other hand, was unpleasant, bordering on rude. Not a good woman to be working in a service industry, and I feel sorry for her overworked and put-upon husband. Good luck to you if you annoy her!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in the Australia Room. I chose this B&B based on good reviews. Perhaps the description was true but unfortunately is not accurate now. Breakfast was cereal (no yoghurt or fruit) and toast with jams. Coffee was International Roast. An espresso was $6.00. No hot breakfast was offered. I chose this accommodation because there was a restaurant/cafe on site which would be handy as Glen Alpin is a little way out of Stanthorpe. Be aware that this is not open, neither is the art gallery. Rooms were adequate but certainly not "luxury". Again the coffee in the house was instant International Roast. If you are considering this accommodation please be aware that the description is, unfortunately, no longer accurate in many aspects,

We were 2 x families looking for accommodation to suit 9 of us! The large home with 5 bedrooms suited us perfectly. Lots of space and a large common area to hang out. Jenny and Alan provided us with great hospitality. Especially the very generous and delicious breakfasts that arrived in the mornings. It was lovely to sit and have a large family table and all the great conversations that came from that. Jenny was also wonderful at accommodating our gluten intolerant son with special options for him!
