“Best accommodation we have had the preasure to stay in for years”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

The Poacher's Paradise Motel is clean, has lovely big rooms, great bathrooms. It is located within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants.
There were 16 people in our party and all 16 people had great comments about this Motel.
Thank you Jane for looking after our group so well. You really made us welcome and went out of your way to look after us.
Already working on a date for our next visit to your beautiful, clean property. You have ensured all the little extra things are there that make us feel at home.
If anyone is thinking of a trip to Rutherglen this Motel is the place to stay.

I highly recommend Poachers Paradise in Rutherglen. Location is fantastic in the centre of town. It is like a home from home. Rooms are clean and have everything that you need for a weekend break. The owner Jane is absolutely fabulous, She went out of her way to ensure that we had everything we needed and she went above and beyond her duty as hotelier. I will definitely be visiting this place again.

Have to also recommend that you book a limousine tour with Alister, his tour is fantastic and he knows everyone and everyone knows him.

Felt like one of the locals by the time we left this beautiful country town.

Thank you Sandra for your kind words, we enjoyed having you all stay with us. We are very lucky to have our accommodation in the heart of town although in a very quite street. Very glad to hear you enjoyed our package with Alistair our limousine driver, he has such a vast knowledge of the area and wineries. We look forward to seeing you all again in the future. Jane & John

We had 4 adults staying in the family room. The rooms was spacious enough for us all. The bathroom was nice & really clean. The staff were lovely & really helpful. The towels were actually quite fluffy & big. We went into the adjoining pub for dinner & the food was pretty good. Good location, right in the middle of town.

We didn't stay but we did dine here for dinner. Had another restaurant booked however some locals advised us to dine at Poecher's instead, which we did. It was an excellent decision as all of our meals were served well cooked, the portion size was perfect and the price was very reasonable. We had been told the Chicken Wellington was the standout choice on the menu however the kitchen had run out so we all chose the salmon. We decided to have coffee, they were offering dessert and coffee for $7.50, so we ordered dessert too. It was house made and excellent.
The dining room is very basic and noisy as there was a party in another room but the food was good. Would go again for a mid week meal, when we return to Rutherglen.

We didn't stay at the motel attached to this pub but we did eat there tonight. Nothing special about the dining room but the food was reasonably priced and tasty. I enjoyed my bruschetta and my wife was very pleased with her vegetarian pasta.The rest of the menu and the specials of the day looked promising.

Standard motel of 3 star quality - very clean and well presented - TV too high (got a sore neck from having to look up all the time ) - motel in a great location. Unfortunately privacy is not good. All units are ground level and other guests who want to socialise have no option but to gather outside the doors. As the only window to the room is next to the door we had to put up with noisey party and couldnt open our window - very stuffy in unit with no fresh air. If we had wanted a camping ground exoperience we would have stayed in a camping ground. The situation was made worse by the frodge being fouled with stale milk. Strong smell filled room everytiome gfridge was opened. Despite several requests and some attempts by owners the situation remained for the whole of our stay. Do not recommend

Room Tip: The higher the room number the better chance of not having put up with noise from other guests

Could have been a lovely experience. Room was fine, meal fine, but after 900km one books a motel for the purpose of sleep which proved impossible. If we had been told we would have had the option not to book on this night. Hence the worst night in 20 years of motelling
