We stayed here overnight recently and it was everything that was promised and more. Exceptionally clean and well maintained; good, big room and bathroom. Friendly and very efficient service; well located - just a walk to the main shopping area and the pub for a meal.

Just got back from a weekend staying here. Best accommodation in Penola! Marine and her team did a great job looking after us and making us feel welcome. As we are from Victoria, we forgot about the time differences. Marine went over and above by contacting our bus driver and sorting times out. Bonus! Overall the rooms are well appointed,... More

NIce modern rooms with a great location. Close to all the wineries.The owner was extremely friendly and helpful with suggestions for a restaurant in this small town with limited choices. If you want to visit an area with great wineries, a small town feel, this motel will not disappoint you.

My husband and I pulled in here on our way back to Adelaide from the Great Ocean Road. The welcome was lovely! They were so willing to go the extra mile, pulling the BBQ around to our room so that we could have a BBQ. They are located right next to the IGA, so it was a cinch to pick... More

Stayed for two nights in searing heat of January 2014. Clean, comfortable, conveniently next to the IGA (though not disturbed by it). Easy walk to restaurants. Friendly and helpful service. Our girls loved the little dog the owner has.

This motel was perfectly adequate for our 3-day, 2 night stay in the Coonawarra region. Our room was large and clean, although not exactly well appointed. A typical motel, I suppose but rather better than some others that we stayed at. A few basic items were provided in the room fridge for a mini breakfast, but very little in the... More

Stayed three nights here. The rooms are all very large, and loved the convenience of having a kitchenette. Spotlessly clean and well maintained. We enjoyed sitting in the shade overlooking the grounds on a evening, sipping our new wine purchases. The town has everything you would need, historical trail, restaurants, cafes and pubs, Visitor Centre. The motel is next to... More

If you are looking for a clean, friendly, quite, well priced Motel - then the Alexander Cameron in Penola is for you. Walking distance to all the shops, café, restaurants and a very short drive to the wineries. Enjoy the Coonawarra....

This is a well located motel with large rooms. The neighbouring supermarket is convenient. The welcome shown at check in was warm and friendly. Decor in the room is a little dated but it's serviceable and most importantly clean which is at the top of my priority list when it comes to accommodation. We had a room with patio door... More

So glad you enjoyed your stay, we also have some wonderful attractions in the area, such as Blue Lake and The Heritage Naracoorte Caves. All within driving distance, I sure hope we will see you again after all with 26 wineries in the area you may need a few days :) Warm Regards Marnee & The Girls More

I have stayed with my family for a night for my wine trip from Adelaide to Melbourne. This motel is conveniently located in Penola. It takes less than 10 mins to get to the wine region, Coonawarra. You will not be disappointed with the Cabernet Sauvignon at those famous wineries such as Katnook, Majella and Balnaves. We travelled as a... More
