Beautiful building well appointed with amazing bathrooms and a comfortable bed. The TV was difficult to operate and was old technology - not what was expected in luxury accomodation. Having stayed in other luxury units, this place could definitely improve attention to detail and provide more value for money. No wine and chocolates for us either!

We stayed 2 nights in Merlot, of Merlot and Verdelho Townhouses in Penola. You have to call before you arrive to get the combination to open both the gate for parking, and the townhouse itself. (The parking gate closes automatically after a certain amount of time). We did not see the owner(s) of this townhouse the whole time we were... More

My husband and I spent a night in Merlot recently and found the townhouse very comfortable. After an enjoyable afternoon wine tasting, we returned to prepare to go out for dinner only to have our host knock on the door at 5pm with our breakfast provisions!! Very poor time management on their behalf and annoying for us. Especially after paying... More

Very modern and well equipped, the two townhouses were perfect for our weekend away. Six couples were well accommodated with plenty of room and facilities. Having an adjoining doorway between the two homes was perfect. We held a murder mystery night in one side, had a local chef from Mount Gambier in to cook and a great night was had... More

Our honeymoon was just a delight ... spending six weeks travelling. A friend recommended these townhouses and they were REALLY amazing. Wineries close by and wonderful restaurants and a supermarket nearby. The pubs were lovely and had good meals. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Completely surprised to find such a sophisticated apartment in such a small country town. The bedroom and bathrooms were a real treat. Situated in the middle of town it was easy to get to the local shops and restaurants. This was an overnight stop on the way to Adelaide so we didn't have time to explore the surrounding area, but...

We stopped Overnight in Penola. The Town house for 2 couples was Great. The downstairs bathroom was Fabulous the only problem was the water spray more like a fine mist difficult to get wet. Location 1 minute to town centre and very close to Coonawarra.

My other half and another couple stayed here for 4 nights in September to explore the Coonawarra wineries. It was the perfect base and we were delighted when we arrived at the standard of accommodation we'd booked. The townhouse is perfect for 2 or 3 couples with a huge living area, bathrooms to die for and a very well equipped... More

I had to make a cancellation at Merlot & Verdello. I was going to rebook, but after the unfriendly service I did not make another booking. Customer service was lacking. I cancelled only three days after making the booking due to unforeseen work changes. I was going to be charged 50 per cent of my total amount. I made the... More
