We have just returned from a two night stay at the Walkabout. While the hotel itself appears a little dated, if you want excellent customer service then this is the place for you. Leading up to our stay I was dealing with Tanya via email who could not have been anymore helpful with planning our stay. Paige looked after us... More

Great service, relaxing, warm friendly. Lovely room with open fireplace & spa. The bed was extremely comfortable! Can't wait to get back to try their limo wine tour and outdoor spa and barbecue area in the warmer months. Thank you for such a pleasant stay.

Arrived pretty late at night. The air conditioning was that noisy that we had to turn it off as it felt like we were sleeping next to a truck with its fridge motor running. It's 2014 surely, for the price you pay the air cons should be upgraded to something from this century. We had booked this one based on... More

Stayed a Sat night whilst on a quick wine weekend stopover to the mountains. Multiple adults so worked out much cheaper than comparable separate hotel rooms or the nearby B&B's. Grounds & facilities looking tired, but cottages clean & comfortable with a passable kitchen - and plenty of room to pile up the wine bottles. Beds comfortable enough, although very... More

We stayed here for two nights in the supposed '2 Bedroom' Family unit. It's more like 1 bedroom, with a 2nd bed in the lounge room. Motel is dated and in need of some TLC. Service was horrible. Despite confirming accommodation and wine tour the day before, they then cancelled our tour 40mins before we were meant to depart. We... More

When you came back and said the afternoon wasn't suitable I phoned 3 other tour operators while you stood there and listened in reception while I tried to find... More

We recently stayed in the Sherry room for 2 nights and found it a bit tired and dated but it was very comfortable, had a great shower, a sofa and was roomy for the two of us. There was a toaster and microwave which we were able to use. Luckily we had our own plates, utensils etc. but it would... More

Happened to come across this Motel when I was looking for accommodation for a spur of the moment weekend trip to Rutherglen. Based on the selection criteria from my partner that the room had to have a spa I found the Champagne room (or Champers as it was written on the keys). This room not only had a spa but... More
