The beautiful accommodation at the Commercial Boutique Hotel provides the perfect jump off point to explore Tenterfield, with its many national parks and stunning countryside whether by vintage car, cycling, bush walking or hiking. Tenterfield is located only 40 minutes from Stanthorpe, in beautiful wine country perfectly situated to explore the Granite Belt. Located on Tenterfield’s main street, the hotel accommodation itself is ideal to explore this historically significant town.

 

The original Commercial Hotel was constructed in 1856, as a large two storey building on one of the main corners in town. This hotel was demolished in the 1930s. All that remains of the original design is the old horse water trough located on the corner of Rouse and High Street, which poses the classic question “what’s yours”?

 

During the Second World War, in what must have been one of the largest construction undertakings in Tenterfield at the time, the then Tooheys owned hotel was built in two stages in a classic 1940s art deco style. The new building had over 20 accommodation rooms. An original and hand painted Tooheys clock that was located above one of the fireplaces, has been restored to working order and is proudly mounted behind the bar in tribute to this era in the history of the hotel.

 

Stepping outside the hotel you find yourself right in the heart of Tenterfield. The historic town is renowned for the famous Sir Henry Parkes’ ‘Birth of our Nation’ speech on October 24th 1889.

 

A short stroll up High Street you will find the Tenterfield Saddler made famous internationally by Peter Allen’s song by the same name as a tribute to his grandfather Geroge Woolnough. Just a stones throw away from there you will find the historic cork tree, which was brought over from England by Edward Parker in a little jam tin in 1861, and is still growing strong.

Or perhaps you would like to explore one or more of the many ‘Tenterfield trails and tales’ on foot, cycle or further afield in the comfort of your car. With so many creeks, rivers, waterfalls and historic and sacred sites, you will be spoilt for choice when deciding which swimming and picnic spot to stop off at. Grab a picnic pack from the Commercial Boutique Hotel and embark on a journey into Boonoo Boonoo National park or climb Bald Rock the largest granite rock in the southern hemisphere at 750 meters long and 200 meters wide. Or perhaps just wander around town marveling at the natural landscape and at how it changes from season to season.

 

Our region is rich in soil perfect for high altitude cold climate wine making. Spend the day exploring the many local wineries offered along the Granite Belt wine trail, sampling the many great wines our region has to offer.

 

Or perhaps play a round of golf at The Tenterfield Golf Club, where people come from near and far to play on this renowned course. Then relax with a craft beer or smooth wine on our beer garden deck watching the sun go down over Mount McKenzie, before retiring to one of our luxury accommodation suites.
