We always try to experience something new on our weekends away and this one did not disappoint in the slightest. In fact it raised the bar on the standards for future holidays. Tanya and Paul were outstanding hosts and the weekend package staying in the 2 bedroom cottage was fantastic value for money. The 3 hr stretch limousine ride, included... More

We were among the first people to stay in this motel when it was built approx. 30 years ago and time has been kind, it is still in top condition and obviously been refurbished to a high standard. It is well located, quiet, spacious, well equipped, friendly staff and very reasonable rates and I highly recommend.

Nothing bad to say, the room was a family one with a separate bedroom for the kids. It was a standard motel re facilities, but very comfortable, quiet and the owners were fabulous - really helpful, chatty and friendly. Surprisingly given the chilly evening we didn't need the heater, the room stayed a good temperature. We were close to most... More

We are currently staying at this motel on the edge of Rutherglen. Each unit is more than comfortable with older style units maintained impeccably. New furniture and furnishings make this a home away from home with amenities including a lovely pool and BBQ area. Each unit has a back door onto a very pleasant recreation area. Tanya, the host, is... More

This was a last minute booking we had to make after other travel delays. The owners were friendly and flexible and didn't complain when we checked in at 11.30pm. The room was comfortable for our family of four, with the kids in a separate room. The free wifi worked and the small kitchenette was available for toast and coffee in... More
