Adorned by an extremely well kept garden (loved it, was so adorable), spotless rooms with all the necessities. The outdoor swimming pool looked quite inviting, however we did not use it as it was a bit too cool for us during our stay. Modern heat pump, so quiet that we almost forgot we had it on!

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...

What an excellent choice we made for our overnight stop in Rutherglen. The room was very well appointed and we wanted for nothing....we were even handed a small bottle of FRESH milk when we arrived. Breakfast delivered to our room was freshly cooked and excellent. Lots of helpful info on the area was given. Highly recommend.

Great location. One of the best beds we have slept on. The owner was extremely helpful with suggestions where to dine and places of interest to travel to. An added plus was the fresh milk in a glass jar. Would definitely recommend this motel to anyone visiting the area.

We have stayed in a few of the regions hotels and motels and thought we would try this one. We usually expect accommodation to be clean and in working order. Woongarra was all that and more. The owner greeted us and what has left us with a memorable visit was his friendly nature and his willingness to chat to us...
