We had a problem with the airconditioner not working in our suite - the fantastic reception lady tried everything she knew to get it going, but with no success. We had resigned ourselves to a miserable cold night, when she came in with a brand new high capacity blower-heater, which had us toasty in no time. Apparently she'd gone to... More

this quiet cluster of apartments looks like just another motel, but what a surprise - a huge room and enormous bathroom - the biggest I've ever seen!!! Well fitted out, with kitchen, utensils, good heating, large TV, and comfortable bed. Located near the local IGA, and close to the town centre, it was a good base for our trips to... More

We had the king size room and even though we got in late received great service. The room was just the best we thought. Even given a continental breakfast set up in the room. So relaxing. The setting was well set out and beautifully looked after. Our room had a patio which is ideal for relaxing before setting off.

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
