Hi Matt W, Thank you kindly for your recent review. Of course the free wine in July was/is to celebrate our Month of Cellar Dweller where most of the Cellar doors here in Coonawarra have Vintage wines for tasting. To encourage our clients to book through our website, we offered them and only them, a nice bottle of Coonawarra Wine.... More

Stayed one night at Alexander Cameron for business. My colleagues had recommended it as being the best place in Penola. Did not get disappointed. Overall the motel is modern and well-maintained. Check in was friendly with good information about local restaurants. Rooms are spacious, modern, well-maintained, clean with a good sized bathroom. A great service is the breakfast in fridge...

Lovely quiet, clean motel - great location for Penola town. 'starter pack' of bread, butter, jams, milk, yogurt, cereals - all appreciated! Friendly, obliging Management and staff - nothing a problem.

Clean, spacious, quiet, well priced. I will be staying again. The bed was comfortable, shower was hot & all the facility's worked as they should. Close to town and easy drive to Coonawarra wine region. Hassle free weekend in a great area.......

A regular motel for my business needs Has recently changed hands however the same excellent service spotlessly clean rooms and continental breakfast is provided. The new owners seem to be trying to promote business travellers by offering a good discount.

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.
