Close to the venue we were attending, hotel had signs saying that staff would enter the room to turn off the aircon/heater if we left it on while we were out. The room was so cold due to a gap in the doorframe.

The main problem was the air conditioning. Outside temperature never got over 8 degrees but air conditioner was on a timer and set at 22 degrees. Bed was comfortable. No electric blanket although it was written that all beds are supplied with them. Great location in regards to town centre. Everything within walking distance. Room definitely needs some TLC. Front door was sticking and hard to open. Don’t agree with sink (washbasin) outside bathroom. No spoon or other type of cutlery to stir your coffee. Plumbing in shower very loud. Room okay if staying overnight. No good for long stays. Staff very friendly and helpful. Even supplied with a very nice port on my birthday.

Good location

Pros: Attention to detail including windscreen cleaning tools
Cons: Higher kitchen tap so kettle does not need to be filled with shower head
Location: Western end of shops and across the road from Rutherglen Tuileries Winery
We had standard queen room which was good size and plenty of space to spread out

Overnight Stay for Family Function

Pros: Comfortable & clean.
Cons: Happy with what we had.
Location: Easy to find and most of what we needed was close by including a very good café/coffee shop.
Nice clean room with plenty of space. Everything clean with no dust anywhere. Comfortable king-size bed although room info folder stated electric blankets were on all beds which was not the case. Very good cooked breakfast at reasonable price.

Thank you Paul for your review of Motel Woongarra. We apologise that you did not find an electric blanket on your bed. We have had some issues with the Electric Blankets recently and have made the decision to remove them from the rooms. We are in the process of updating the room folders. Whilst our air conditioning systems are over size for the rooms we do have hot water bottles available for Guests should they wish. Again thank you for your review and we look forward to having you stay again when you have a family function in Rutherglen.

Great familly accommodation

The 2 bedroom unit at Motel Woongarra was great for our family's stopover in Rutherglen. The separate rooms for us and the kids was great, and good value for money. Room had everything we needed. Check in was quick and easy and the owner was very friendly and helpful with local businesses. Loves his Holdens too!! We all had a perfect night's sleep. Thanks Motel Woongarra. Highly recommended..
