“Great Holiday Accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2012

We stayed here a couple of months ago after purchasing an offer through Travel Auctions.The owner was very welcoming and went out of her way to be helpful. We received help with starting the barbeque which was provided for the use of guests and had a very enjoyable meal. We also purchased meals at the hotel one night and had them delivered to our room which was a nice touch for weary travellers as we could dine in our PJ's. The rooms were very clean and we had everything we needed to make our stay a most enjoyable one. I would certainly stay here again, it is a perfect position for trips to Beechworth, Bright and lots of other surrounding areas. A lovely little motel in a very central position in the town.

We stayed here two years ago when we were on our way to Melbourne and had no hesitation in booking a room in advance for this trip. Large rooms, large bathrooms, comfortable beds and everything is spotless. We thanked the owners for doing such a lovely job and also complimented the cleaner before we left. It's comforting just knowing that this place exists.

In Victoria in general, standards seem to be higher and prices lower than in NSW.

Poachers Paradise is a 10 room motel. It is clean and comfortable and excellent value for money. Breakfast is first class and the owners very welcoming. Room 1 is set up for disabled or aged people as it has support rails in the facilities etc. Room 8 is ideal for a family as it has 2 bedrooms and room 10 has a spa. The hotel is close by though I got no noise from it at night. The hotel serves great country evening meals at a good price. Thoroughly recommend this motel.

Room Tip: Room 1 if you are older, room 8 for families.

We had eaten here on a few occassions and had great meals.. We went on Sat night, the locals had won footy so the place was fabulously on a high, great atmosphere. We waited till 8 to order, so most of the locals had eaten. I ordered the garlic prawns and asked if I could have vegies instead of salad and told that they do not deviate from the menu, weird for country hospitality. My partner had a schnitzel and ordered the seafood sauce from the beef and reef and offered to pay the extra cost. Don't know how much we were charged but the Schnitzel came out with the creamy sauce minus the seafood (we laughed and laughed, I think there was a misunderstanding) we didn't say anything and ate our meals. The schnitzel was terrific! My garlic prawns were nice too, Salad was ok, but would have preferred vegies on a cold winters night. Not bad though! We really enjoyed the atmosphere the most. Even ran into some Cousins I hadn't seen for years! So ended up a good night.

We had the pleasure of staying at Poacher's Paradise in May on a Travel Auction. Our stay was absolutely delightful. Joanne was very welcoming on our arrival and during our stay, she was helpful, friendly and happy to help us in any way. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed. We dined in the attached Hotel and our meals were delicous and reasonably priced.
Rutherglen is a great place to visit and the wines are first class. We would recommend Poachers for your next stay in Rutherglen, You won't be disappointed.

Stayed during the Walkabout this year, and really enjoyed it.

The location is great – 5 minutes and you’re anywhere in town. The rooms are large, comfortable, warm in winter and very clean. The owners are lovely and friendly, and seemed only too happy to help if they could with any suggestions when we had any questions. We had breakfast in our room one morning, and was one of the nicest we had all weekend. Minibar prices were reasonable, and the wines were selected by the owners (and not too different from cellar-door prices also). It was lovely to be able to walk around the town, staying so central.

Very much looking forward to going back next year!

Room Tip: Probably not worth the extra money for the spa room - just opt for the basic and save the cash.
