Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was a bit disconcerting to arrive here at 4.15 to find the Reception closed and a notice on the door giving a phone number to ring 'if urgent.' Having hung around for a while we finally rang the number and were then advised of our room number. Just a suggestion but it would be more reassuring if the message read 'if you have a reservation, please ring this number.' Apart from that, the motel is clean, comfortable spacious and good quality. We'd stay here again.

Stayed here last night while in town for the Anderson Winery dinner, which was just a short walk away at the Pickled Sisters. Great place to stay - nice and central to town, just one block away from main st of rutherglen. Because of that it was nice and quiet. Room was great (and clean) and had everything you would need. Heating worked well and beds were extremely comfortable so had great nights sleep. Staff were very welcoming. Will definitely stay here again on future trips to rutherglen!

Very close to town. Large rooms which was surprising for a motel. Clean. Friendly hosts. Discount at pub! Inexpensive. Definitely come back. Close to several wineries. Quaint little town with lots to explore.

We have stayed at this motel several times over the past 15 years, and I congratulate the current owners for presenting a comfortable, clean, and well-equipped motel room in a great location. The beds are now really comfortable; a large TV with Foxtel and 'on demand' available provides more than enough viewing options, a spacious bathroom compliments the large bedroom, A microwave, toaster, kettle and a small quantity of cutlery and crockery are sufficient for making your own breakfast. The motel is located at the back of the Poachers hotel and so away from the main street which can be busy and noisy. A very well-maintained motel providing an enjoyable stay.

Great little hotel in the centre of Rutherglen. It is at the back of the Poachers Hotel (which when open, you can walk through to the other side of the street) Studio room was spacious. It had a Queen bed, lounge, coffee table and small table. Lots of bench space in the room. Good sized wardrobe. Microwave, Fridge, Kettle, cups, some bowls, knives, and forks as well as tea / coffee making facilities. The bathroom was also very spacious with plenty of bench room for your toiletries. The bed was comfortable and there were extra pillows etc available. Foxtel was on the TV and parking was right out the front of my room. The staff were very friendly and easy to communicate with. They also turned the air con on in advance for me, so the room was nice and warm when I arrived later in the evening. For the geographically challenged, please note that your GPS will take you to the front of the hotel and not the Motel entrance. So put Murray Street in your GPS or it will take you to Main Street (which is around the corner). I would definitely recommend staying here and would do so again.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Rooms are spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable, lots of storage and the bathroom was large. Toaster, bar fridge, kettle, microwave with bowls, plates etc - just what you need for breakfast. Parking at the door and an outdoor undercover area that we utilised for pre dinner drinks. Walk through the pub and your on the main street of Rutherglen. The only noise we heard was on 2 very early mornings from trucks delivering to cafes. Would stay here again and recommend to others.

Stayed at the Poachers Paradise Motel in Rutherglen. Had quite a nice stay here had a slight problem with the wi fi but was helped by reception staff. Needed only a couple of things to make this place a big improvement. They still had a shower curtain in the bathroom which i found a bit odd these days and needed a blind for the front window, a bit dated they need to spend a small amount of money to modernize this place. Nice people and good place and top location.

Hi - thanks for response - we have changed our modem after power surge and have had no issues with Wifi - due to different age of guests a shower screen would need a step up into shower - new curtains and blinds are awaiting delivery and installation - we have updated the motel since taking over last year - including new mattresses / carpet / painting of inside walls / linen / lamps / gardening / paintings to reflect heritage of local area and we will continue to upgrade as needed - we trade as a country heritage motel - your Hosts Kerry and Greg

This Motel is set back off any main roads so nice & quiet with plenty of parking. There is a big park & public outdoor swimming pool directly across the road. The rooms are spacious & has everything you would expect from a quality motel. All restaurants, cafes & shops are a very short walk.
