5 nights at Poachers Paradise Hotel

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Apr 2023
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 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!

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.

Room tip: There is plenty of parking out the front if your are towing trailers or caravans.
