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

Stayed in Merlot Townhouse in 2008...so really late writing this! But having just recommended to a friend thought I should share our experience. We went in the off season and so cannot comment on any noise complaints as it was absolutely dead at that time of year. However, we thought it was just a terrific place. We were travelling with...

We stayed at the Merlot Townhouses on our Winery tour of South Australia. Great location, we shared this apartment with another couple and it was perfect. The bathroom and kitchen are of very high stardard. Would definitely recommend this place - loved it.

After staying at the Penola Caravan Park for the last time, we were looking for new accommodation in the area and decided to give Merlot & Verdelho a try. The first impression was good - the townhouse was spotless, and huge! The bathroom downstairs had one of the biggest spas we'd ever seen, and the open design of the rest... More

Very fortunate to find this accommodation - a great location in the centre of town and with lots of wineries/cellar doors to visit nearby. This is a duplex apartment with secure off-street parking. Inside is very spacious with high ceilings over the living and dining area. The kitchen is well appointed and a nice breakfast basket supplied. The main bedroom... More

The two modern apartments in this complex have been carefully designed for that 'wow' factor. They're loft style which means the bedroom is open over the living area. Not perfect if you are noise-conscious and want to sleep while your partner/friends are chatting or watching tv downstairs, but for most stayers it won't be a problem. The bed and bathroom... More

An amazing location, cleanliness, the owners were friendly and welcoming, fantastic facilities. We loved our stay in Penola and Coonawarra region, so much to see and do, we really enjoyed our 2 nights here and easily could have stayed longer. I have no hesitation in recommending Merlot and Verdelho Townhouses if you're looking for 5 star luxury in a central... More

Penola is a dump and is not worth visiting unless you are going to visit the wineries. There are hardly any shops or restaurants. Penola is normally recommended on the drive from Melbourne to Adelaide, instead stay in Mount Gambier. We stayed in Verdelho for one night. First impressions were that it was a clean, modern house. We only saw... More
