“Lovely Winery Escape”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Poachers Paradise for our wine weekend. Jane and her team couldn't do enough for us and the accommodation is first class. We enjoyed the use of the BBQ area and the premises has a very relaxed feel. The central location made it easy to cover the area and the packaged wine excursion in the limousine was informative and a heap of fun. Well worth the stay! Thanks Jane

Excellent customer service from the lady on the front desk. Especially when we were getting wine deliveries after our cycling tour. The family room was plenty large enough. The motel is very centrally located and an easy walk to the Main Street. There was some noise on the Saturday night from the pub (only heard in the second bedroom) and done noise from other motel guests smoking out the front of their rooms. But overall it was good.

This motel is centrally located in Rutherglen, which is why we decided to stay here. lose to walk to good food and short journey to cellar door wineries.
We stayed for two nights, and having stayed in many motels this one was definitely one of the best. It was clean, fresh and modern.
We had the breakfast delivered to our room one morning which was excellent value for money. The receptionist was very friendly. The motel is directly behind the pub, though there were no noise disturbances. Would stay again!

We stayed at this motel and from the moment we stepped out of our car we were greeted with a welcoming smile. The rooms were very clean, great location within walking distance of Town. Nothing was to much trouble for the owners, everything was done with a smile. Would highly recommend and would certainly visit again.

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.
