Very nice, clean and comfortable rooms. Great place to stay in town and right behind the main street as well. Free austar and wifi is great. We would recommend highly to anyone coming to rutherglen. The rooms are very spacious and have everything you need

This is a clean, comfortable, well appointed well located Motel In Rutherglen. Room was spacious, clean with comfortable bed. Located adjacent to atmospheric Hotel with good well priced country style meals. Motel guests receive a 10% discount on Hotel purchases. Friendly and obliging hosts. Quiet location one block back from main street.

We dropped in on a trip from Melbourne to Sydney, a quick stop for my parents and myself. Our rooms were great and at a great price, greeted warmly by the owners, threw our things in our room and managed to take in about 5 wineries as the hotel is very closed to all that Rutherglen has to offer.

We arrived on a weekday without booking, which is a risk here, but were cheerfully met at Reception and efficiently booked into this (about) 10 unit motel. Room was modern, not trendy, but clean and very comfortable with all modern amenities inc WiFi. TV with Austar was a little smaller than expected but certainly not a deal breaker. Motel is... More

Nothing was too much trouble.the outdoor areas were well tended and welcoming, the large room was modern and comfortable. Fresh milk and larger than average towels was a bonus. The associated hotel offered room service... More

We had a lovely weekend in Rutherglen this weekend which in part was helped by the wonderful Jane who currently manages the Poachers Paradise motel. The motel itself is clean and adequate. The beds are good and the bathroom a decent size. The best thing about the motel is its location. It is at the back of the main street... More

Jane made us feel very welcome and booked a table for NewYear's Eve dinner and gave us a 10% discount to use at the hotel.(great food) Nothing is too hard for them, they just know who to call and confirm if stores are opened or not. We stayed in room 9,... More

Have stayed here several times. Very clean and comfortable with great hosts. Spacious rooms, large bathrooms with showers that actually work and stay hot. Poachers is not an ordinary Motel, Jane and the staff make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive and tend to your every need. It's like a home away from home and you will be... More
