We stayed over night at the cottage, 2 couples. The house was ideal for 2 or 3 couples with 3 good sized bedrooms and a good sized open kitchen dinning area. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean with all amenities. We were disappointed that when we asked about the breakfast that we were told it was not supplied... More

We stayed in Cameron's Cottage, which is a turn of the century cottage dating to the foundation of Penola. It is beautifully laid out yet in keeping with its age. There were sufficient provisions left for breakfast and a well stocked kitchen cupboard. The picture decorations were fascinating. The cottage is within easy access of Penola attractions. Definite recommendation.

My wife and I stayed here the weekend, as part of a touring group. What a wonderful place. Large, comfortable and spotlessly clean rooms, large flat screen tv, free wifi access and free breakfast in the rooms. Tip top stay!

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
