Our touring party of 30 stayed overnight at Penola (wish we had planed for extra day) and the Alexander Cameron Motel was a real pleasure. Mine hosts ensured we were met and shown to our rooms (already pre-heated), which were quite large, very comfortable - a home away from home at quite realistic prices.We would certainly stay there again.

After a hiccup with our booking that was resolved quickly and graciously, we spent 2 nights in absolute comfort. We have stayed there before and found it to be first class accommodation, managed by friendly and helpful people. We would unhesitatingly stay there again.

Stayed three nights in a suite on the east side of the property. It was very spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and the all usual amenities were provided. A reasonable in room continental breakfast was included in the price. The balcony at the back of the suite is large and has a view pleasant (despite the paddock behind... More

Hi McKay2015, So glad you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully the truckload of dirt out the back will resemble a green paddock again with lovely gum trees like it used to look. The owner of the block is waiting to organize the flattening of all the dirt, which will initially look bare, but hopefully when the grass grows again, all will... More

The suites are very spacious with modern well appointed bathrooms. The East, North and South suites open onto the central courtyard/garden. The East side suites also have a rear door opening onto a balcony with a rural aspect, although it appears some development is about to commence on this land. The units are modern and are very spic and span.... More

Stayed 3 nights in one of the suites which has its own patio at the rear, divided from your neighbours by a trellis with some greenery on it. Unfortunately at the moment the view is rather poor, with "slag" heaps of large stones being dumped there from the bypass road being built nearby. However the hosts tell me that once... More

Stayed a night in one of the "luxury" suites and found it to be spacious and well equipped with comfy bed and the included breakfast goodies in the fridge. It's also pretty quiet here, a short distance way back from the main highway. The only thing we would criticise is the very old-school soap and shampoo dispenser on the shower... More
