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

Welcoming owners, Spacious clean rooms, good wifi.Close to everything. 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

Situated right behind the hotel with the same name (access from street one block behind). Large modern rooms, with large modern bathrooms. Beautifully clean and comfortable, with a great bed. My cooked breakfast was excellent. Walk straight through the back door into the hotel for good value meals from a quite extensive menu. I will not hesitate to stay there... More

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
