The room was located in the quiet part of the town and thus our night stay was a pleasant one. We had a good night sleep after driving up from Melbourne. Recep was friendly and gave us directions on where to grab a simple dinner. The room was spacious and clean. Highly recommends it to anyone who visits Penola.

Our stay here was an absolute pleasure. The staff were very courteous and helpful throughout our stay. The rooms were larger than expected, clean and comfortable with all the modern amenities you would expect. One of the nicest country town motels I have stayed in in a long time. Very close to town (easily walk-able) and right next to an... More

A good place to stay while visiting the Coonawarra area. The continental breakfasts left in the fridge each day were ideal. Quieter than we'd experienced at our previous Penola motel choice, as the trucks aren't flying past at quite the same rate this close to town. It was good for 3 adults, but the design/layout of the unit was "interesting".... More

We arrived expecting just another motel room but were very pleasantly surprised by the space, attention to detail and overall impression. Having breakfast included and provided in the fridge was a great touch and the well stocked fridge and larder available for purchase made the stay even better. Lovely room with lots of light and great shower too. Highly recommend... More

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
