HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The owner has some much knowledge of the area. Woongarra was spotlessly clean and comfortable. A very friendly welcome and it didn't stop there. The pool was emaculate and crystal Clean beautiful short walk into town. We travelled with a group 11 people and nothing was a problem. Where to eat what wineries to visit. I will definitely stay there...

Excellent accommodation and location. Valued time by the pool and using the outdoor settings. Close to wineries and a very short walk to nearby eateries and shops. Would definitely choose to stay here again.

We have stayed here before & on our 2nd visit to the Rutherglen was no different. We were very happy with the service & information given. The rooms are larger than most motels, clean & its so central to everything.

The Woongarra Motel was fabulous. We had our staff Xmas party in Rutherglen and hired 10 rooms. Darryn was fabulous to deal with. Rooms were modern, well appointed and the beds were very comfortable. We would be happy to stay there again anytime. And close walking distance to shops and restaurants.

A very warm welcome was followed by excellent advice on local activities and vineyards to visit. The room was comfortable and clean and the location was great, close to restaurants, a boutique brewery and shops. Highly recommended.

Very impressed with the cleanliness of this motel. Rooms spacious and also offered air conditioning. Our previous accommodation was sold and last minute finding something the day before proved almost impossible but very pleasantly surprised with this motel and would recommend for a quick stay.

Motel was clean and well kept. Nothing was too much trouble for owners who were friendly and full of information about the surrounding area. Rooms appeared to have been recently spruced up and had all facilities ( fridge extra bedding recycle bin etc) A very pleasant stay
