We have stayed here many times and stayed again recently for four nights. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the bed comfortable with good quality linen. We always receive a friendly and generous welcome and would recommend the motel for location, comfort and convenience.

Staying for two nights in a queen room. I found that the room was roomy enough and the bathroom user friendly. Only concern is the water pressure when having a shower .... hardly enough pressure and temperature to wet and warm my toes. The room is clean and located one street off the main road. Easy walk to Rutherglen's restaurants,...

We absolutely loved our stay here. This is one of the best country motels that we have experienced. After a long day and in very cold weather we were so pleased to find that the owner was thoughtful enough to have the heating going. Before we arrived I rang to find out about restaurants as we would be a bit...

Had a nice trip to Rutherglen wineries and stayed in Poachers Paradise for two nights. Enjoyed relaxed time there and the dinner in their restaurant was superb with a great variety of wines. We would certainly recommend this place to our friends.

Stayed here for the Taste of Rutherglen festival. Jane, John and Bar staff are very friendly during our three-day stay. Close proximity to the main street and the Hotel/bar facilities came in very handy. I would recommend this to anyone going to Rutherglen. Will return in the future.
