“The best motel we've found!”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

We stayed at this lovely motel for just one night whilst passing thru northern Victoria but we were very impressed. We had a great welcome from the owner Jo and settled into an extremely comfortable room. Everything was provided and spotlessly clean. We had a slightly more expensive room with a little courtyard garden which was quiet and private but was still excellent value for money. There are very pretty gardens well maintained, the motel is in close proximity to a large winery and within walking distance of the town. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Our courtyard room was number 5

If it is service and a good property you are looking for this is it. The managers were fantastic and even spent time with us on two evenings as we sat around the pool and they also set up the BBQ and cleaned it for us on two nights and one morning. Rooms are very comfortable and there is plenty of room which made it easy for a little work that had to be done on one day. Very enjoyable 3 days away with all 4 couples delighted with the Wine Village Motor Inn and the friendly service extended.

Room Tip: There was no issue for any of the couples on our trip - all 4 rooms were similar.

Owners went out of their way to make our stay special. Pool, bbq (which they set up and cleaned for us) were great excellent value for money. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone, and we will definitely be back.

Had a great stay at the Wine Village Motor Inn even though it was only for two nights we found it to be great value for money, good sized room, and owners were lovely. Had a lovely pool area which we made use of and was close to wineries so travel was not an issue.

A last minute decision to stop in Rutherglen. Quick search on Tripadvisor made the choice of where to stay easy, and the Wine Village had a special rate the nite before new years eve.
Very well appointed good sized room, good bathroom, tiny area with fridge, toaster kettle made the room extra user friendly. Comfy bed helped too. Very pleasant garden setting and a small pool. Advice on where to eat was spot on. Only sour note was being monstered for smoking two yards away from the room with the door open. Otherwise, a great stay.

Stayed two nights in a the spa room as a special joint birthday celebration. Room was clean and inviting with the spa in the corner of the large room. Extra towels provided and presented well. Bed was clean and comfortable. Air conditioner worked perfectly even in temperatures in the high 30s outside. Location to main part of town is excellent for a quick walk for meals and other amenities.

Owners of the motel were friendly, although local knowledge of the moment was frustratingly inaccurate. On arrival we were advised what establishments were open for dinner on that Sunday night. Walking into town in the heat wasn't much fun, but we were more frustrated to find than only one of the pubs was open at all. One recommended restaurant had been closed for a while and only open again for take away food later in the week. This was annoying, but not a big issues. The only other issue was the restocking of towels on the 2nd day. The bath mat was taken but was replaced by a hand towel and two of the towels for the spa were also not replaced. I advised this on checkout so there were no concerns about us having taken the towles.

All in all a great stay. Pool was clean and accessible, close to lots of wineries and restaurants (when they are open!) lol.

Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your room and the environment that we have created.

We share your frustration when local businesses do not inform us that they will be closing outside of their normal trading hours, we have spoken to the visitor information centre and hope this can be rectified in the future.

We are proud of the high standard that our housekeepers strive towards and are sorry about the mix up with the bath mat and hand towel.

We look forward to seeing you next time you are in Rutherglen. Jo & Darren

Good:-
Good location,
Nice people,
Very clean,
Swim pool,
Garden setting entertaining area,

Not so Good:-
Bed is double, not queen size,
Sound travels through walls with noisy neighbour,
Bathroom vanity is in the room, not in the bathroom.
