Liked the pool as well. The rooms are generous, very clean and have a stocked bar. Comfortable sleeping arrangments and really nice operators. One niggle only was that chairs allow for adjoining guests to sit and smoke outside your window, a little intrusive. Still an ideal base with which to launch your wine tours!

Great location. Excellent service from the owners who also knew all the local eateries and opening and closing times over the holiday period. Lovely pool and surrounds. Spacious rooms with new bathrooms. I'm trying to find an issue ... had a fantastic stay.

Staying here again (Dec 28th 2014) for 3rd time in 6 years and to be honest if this is not the best Motel in AUS it is in the grand final. The wife and I have stayed in so many Motels and none in this category even come close to this place. Immaculately presented, offers so much for a rural... More

Stayed here September 13th while exploring Rutherglen. Friendly, helpful on site owners. Clean and basic but comfortable rooms. Centrally located in town, just walking distance to restaurants and an easy drive to many wineries.

Stayed here as part of a girls bike riding weekend. Jo the owner was very understanding and accommodating on our change of dates, she was also very helpful and knowledgable about bike riding trails and made bookings on our behalf. The property is beautifully maintained and a real credit to them. The gardens look beautiful, the pool clean and surrounds... More

We stayed in this motel as part of a getaway with friends. The motel is clean and the owners extremely friendly and helpful. The location of this hotel is ideal being near all the local resturants, winerys and a short walk to the tourist information centre. The pool is brilliant for a quick swim when the temperature soars but not... More

My dear old Nanna always told me if it looks good on the outside it is normally just as good on the inside and that is true when it comes to this motel.

Good tv, bed, bathroom, fridge (little freezer), even the option of room service. Good location in town & close to wineries (Rutherglen cellar door across the... More

We stayed one night and were impressed by the service. We were able to check in early which allowed us to change our clothes as we were attending a funeral.
