“Huge room, clean, central, very helpful staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

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 very happy with the pub food. There was even a 10% discount for guests. The hostess even supplied a bunch of winery vouchers. Extremely helpful.

Room Tip: We had a queen non smoking and were very happy. All rooms seem to be on ground level, right next to...

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 chose to stay here for the package of Room with Spa, Winery Tour, chocolates, bottle of wine AND a cooked breakfast each morning! And i tell you what, im glad we stayed here. 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 package was for 2 nights, cost was $440, AND there was a voucher of $40 towards a meal in the bistro that backs onto the Motel. This pub is also a gateway onto the main street.
Such an awesome little getaway, winery tour was amazing! Loved loved loved it! Brought many wines to take home.

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 over the years. Jayne and John are now in charge of the motel and they ensure our comfort is paramount. Fluffy towels, good quality soap, shampoo and conditioner are supplied. They make time for a friendly chat, advise us what's on in town and ensure that we are happy and rested. This motel is close to all facilities but quietly situated for a good night's sleep. Thoroughly recommended.

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 for two nights. Would stay again.
