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.

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

We travelled to Rutherglen for the Tastes of Rutherglen wine and food weekend. We had a fantastic weekend made even better by having great accommodation. The room was great and nothing was too much trouble. I needed an extra bed at short notice and it was made up and ready. I left my car there for the day after I... More

We booked a one night stay at Poachers Paradise the day of the Day on the Green concert at All Saints Estate. Thankfully Jane could accomodate us due to a cancellation. She went above and beyond to ensure that we got to and from the concert. It was great to see that great customer service is alive and well in... More
