My husband and I originally booked for 4 nights and after the first extended our getaway for another 4 nights. Jane and John run a beautiful establishment that we could not fault. The room was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. The staff are friendly and polite. Jane arranged for a Limousine to take us to the wineries which... More

Just a quick stop over on the way through from Melbourne. The room was exceptionally clean, the staff were warm and inviting, and you received a 10% discount if you ate in the hotel. The shower pressure was a little low but otherwise great value.

We stayed here in a family room. The room was very spacious, quiet and spotlessly clean. The motel is right in the centre of Rutherglen, so an easy walk to the shops. Dinner in the Poachers Paradise Hotel on the Friday night was awesome! Everyone thought it was the best pub meal they had ever had - the $20 rib... More

We booked two rooms for five people at short notice, and Poacher's Paradise was everything we needed. Large, comfortable rooms, off the main street but an easy walk to everything. There is a lovely green park and lake across the road. The rooms are slightly dated but they are clean and tidy, with little extras to make you feel at... More

Stayed here for one night with my husband and 3 children and very happy. My parents were in a room next door and they too enjoyed the stay. Spotless rooms, very roomy and so quite and the pub/hotel is attached for easy access to a great family friendly bistro.

Great quiet location. Central to shops, cafes & wineries. Welcoming and professional staff with a bit of country flair. Great meal deal with local pub (10% off). Rooms spacious, clean and comfortable. Bathtooms large and bright. Highly recommend. I will be back!

We walked into the Poacher Paradise at lunchtime. Friendly Bar Staff, good lunchtime menu and good food. There were many other patrons in the Hotels - locals and tourists which was a good sign. Would recommend this Hotel for a light lunchtime meal.

The service is excellent, the room very clean and large. It is located in the centre of the city and I consider it to be luxurious accomodation. It is very easy to find and it was so good to be able to walk in the town, enjoy a good meal, at Treats, and just walk home!

We recently had an overnight stay at this motel while exploring the Rutherglen wine area en route to Melbourne. Centrally located behind the main street, this motel is a hidden gem. The room was spacious with plenty of thoughtful touches for travellers such as wine and champagne glasses, corkscrew, chilled water and plentiful toiletries. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful... More
