The best service I have ever received! From the moment we arrived Jane treated us like family. She made it a memorable and enjoyable experience. The room was clean and comfortable. The spa was bigger that expected. The food at the pub was among the best pub food we have had. Have recommended to all of our friends and family.... More

Located at the rear of the Poachers Hotel this was a motel style room that was accessed via a rear street. Immaculate presentation with WiFi, ironed and pleated pillow slips, and a short 30 second stroll to the adjoining pub. We were there on a Monday night in midwinter where there weren't many places open for dinner but we were... More

Enjoyed the location & service could not be questioned. Received intro offers to some wineries, discount at the pub on the main street. Warm & dry. Heating was quiet. Room was clean & spacious. Could not really ask for much more

We enjoyed this great clean motel with kind helpful hosts. Very clean and comfortable room with everything one needs for a motel. Situated close to pub with good food and in a quiet location. We would recommend again.

Very welcoming reception, easy setup for wifi, nice neat clean room and Jane and her husband really looked after us. Oh i didn't mention that this... More

We have stayed at Poacher's on many occasions over a period of ten years or more and have always been very happy with the quality of the accommodation. But it is not just the comfortable bed, the very clean room and the well appointed bathroom that makes us return; it is the warm welcome we have received from the proprietors... More

Very clean comfortable room and within easy walking distance to pub for evening meal. Very easy to deal with Jane at reception - pleasant personality. Had travelled all day from Moama in rain so nice to put feet up with a chilled refresher in nice surroundings. We will go back !

stayed with family in a family suite (1 x queen, 2 x singles in separate room) for two nights. Clean and comfortable. Sofa bed available but not used. We ate out at the many restaurants only a very short walk away so did not use room service. Some noise at night from the hotel (dance music), but ok. Cost $330... More

My brother and I stayed here for two separate nights (Monday and Thursday) as part of a round trip tour of the region. Because we had arrived from two different cities (Melbourne and Canberra) with two cars, Jane at reception kindly allowed us to keep one of the cars in the staff car park for the two nights we were...

If you are looking for a clean, comfortable and friendly stay, this is the place to be. We stayed at Poachers Paradise for three nights in January for a wedding. From our first contact with Jane she was friendly, approachable and accommodating and was so lovely in person. She really does go the extra mile to make you feel at... More
