We, 2 couples stayed in 2 cabins. Cosy, wonderful log fire, with wood downstairs- in fairly easy reach. Equiped with torch - thank you. Breakfast basket catered for gluten free. Eat in breakfast on Sunday, enjoyed by all & plenty. Booked winery tour for us, very accomodating and organised. Beer enjoyed also. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Meals In The restaurant are excellent and reasonably priced, breakfast basket and the self serve breakfast provided on the Sunday morning is fantastic. The beer at the brewery is excellent and tastes great,...

Stayed the weekend, did a wine 🍷 tour with Filippo's. The cabin was great and each one has a wood heater. The restaurant and surrounds are a great bonus, must go back for more. A true one stop shop for staying... Oh did I mention they also have a brewery!!

We decided to have my birthday celebration at Happy Valley Retreat and Brewery because there are cabins located in the grounds and out of town visitors would have less hassle getting back to a motel after the do.

Booked Friday and Saturday night in bush setting cabin. Staff service is excellent. After booking we were in contact with the brewery as the restaurant was booked out with a function on the Friday night and could not cater for us for dinner. They advised us of different options in town and booked a bus to collect us and table...

A great location with easy access to all the wineries and local produce shops in the area. The cabin was cute and we wished it was a bit colder so we could light the fire. The grounds are lovely and would be fantastic for kids. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was ok too, if a bit dated. It...

The Happy Valley Retreat has to be one of the best kept secrets in Stanthorpe. The staff are always friendly and willing to help with anything. You don't have to go far to have a great meal and a quick drink, as everything is here. My husband and myself will be coming back and soon hopefully. Thanks for everything Happy...
