“Budget cabins”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

We had expected better than what we found after reading the previous review. The Shiraz was clean on the inside but pretty tight for 2 couples - one couple having to leave their bags in the living area to be able to get around the bed. A major dissapointment was in that it states the cabin was air conditioned - technically it was but the a/c unit had a very hard time cooling the small living/dining/kitchen area even when set at max - it never got near getting down to 24 in the common area let alone cooling the bedrooms/bathroom. The ceiling fans were not any help so getting to sleep until the night cooled was hard. The beds were comfortable but the rest of the furniture is pretty cheap with the side tables falling apart when moved. We did not bother with the pool in spite of the heat as it and the rest of the grounds are all in need of TLC. The kitchen was fitted with a jumble of mismatched glasses & dishes.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

I recently stayed in the Shiraz Suite, one of the two 2 bedroom cabins, at the Walkabout Motel. The cabins were very clean and the beds very comfortable. The single bathroom was very spacious and included a spa. The kitchen facilities allowed us to cook breakfast or prepare a small meal. The living area included a dinning table, two couches TV and DVD player. Two couples could comfortably watch TV or eat a meal while discussing the days wine tasting. By Rutherglen standards the cost of the cabin was quite reasonable, for an extra charge breakfast could be arranged.
The Motel is about 400 m from the Rutherglen Estates winery and Tulleries Restaurant and Cafe. Another 400 m walk takes you to the centre of town.
We booked the cabin using the Motel website and found the management helpful and efficient. We would happily stay again.
