The pool and hot tub are clean and well maintained. There are many eating houses within walking distance. Walkabout Motel is the ideal base if you wish to explore the wonderful Rutherglen wine...

We stayed for one night. We were impressed by the friendly staff at reception who even at our late arrival time had plenty of advice on the region. The room was clean and very good value for money. Definitely worth the visit!
