Reviewed yesterday NEW

Comfortable beds, helpful manager, lovely breakfast for three by the pool, short walk to excellent pub food and very close to the local wineries. We three agreed that this was one of the best motel experiences we have had - in a very pretty country town.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 January 2017

The owner has some much knowledge of the area. Woongarra was spotlessly clean and comfortable. A very friendly welcome and it didn't stop there. The pool was emaculate and crystal Clean beautiful short walk into town. We travelled with a group 11 people and nothing was a problem. Where to eat what wineries to visit. I will definitely stay there...

Our room was quite spacious, king size bed and a sitting area. Pillows and linen were lovely. Various outdoor areas to sit and enjoy the evening or have a swim in the pool Great position, easy walk into town for meals and shopping.

We had the pleasure of staying last night at Motel Woongarra in Rutherglen Victoria. The room was extremely clean, the bed amazingly comfortable and we got a real bottle of milk for our morning cup of tea, no small containers of UHT milk, perfect addition to the stay. The manager was very friendly. I would willingly stay at Motel Woongarra...

Thank you Andrew for your review of Motel Woongarra. We agree that UHT milk is not pleasant when staying at a Star Rated Motel. We also believe that comfortable beds are just as important to ensure our Guests have a pleasant stay. We look forward to having you stay again next time you are in Rutherglen.

Always enjoy our stay here. The rooms are comfortable, roomy and well maintained. The owners are friendly and helpful. The pool is one of the best we've come across in our travels. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the area.

Thank you dalton1skiing for a comprehensive review of Motel Woongarra. We hate shower curtains as well and are happy to advise that our Supreme Rooms have glass doors on the showers.

We are pleased you chose to stay at Motel Woongarra 83debbi and appreciate your review of your stay. We also appreciate our location not only to the Rutherglen shops, restaurants and hotels but to the many features of North East Victoria. Rutherglen is certainly a great place to base yourself for a few days when visiting the region.

Excellent accommodation and location. Valued time by the pool and using the outdoor settings. Close to wineries and a very short walk to nearby eateries and shops. Would definitely choose to stay here again.
