We booked here as the motel was closer to the town centre than some and less costly. Very pleased with the accommodation -comfortable beds and good space in the room. Breakfast was included and again was good value for the price. The owners were most helpful, changing our room which was booked at the lower price to a better one... More

A comfortable and well-equipped motel near the centre of Penola, on the Riddoch Highway where most of the cellar doors are located. There is an adjacent restaurant which serves good but pricey meals and can deliver breakfast. If you prefer self-catering, the town has a decent supermarket.

Coonawarra motor lodge has very spacious rooms and really comfortable beds. The owners make guests feel very welcome and cook sensational meals, including morning tea! It's a short walk from penola township. Great for those who enjoy some country peace and hospitality.

We stayed here for 8 nights and it was fantastic! Management were lovely and were always helpful. The rooms are very large and clean -which is all that we needed. Great location, only minutes drive to the wineries and Penola. I would not hesitate to book here again!

The Coonawarra Motor Lodge is conveniently located on the road from Adelaide into Penola. It is close enough to the village to walk everywhere. The room was clean and comfortable, and there was an on-site quality restaurant which also had a take away menu. You can walk easily round the heritage trail and to the Mary MacKillop Centre. There's a... More

Stayed here overnight and enjoyed our stay. The management were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a family room, which was great! The room was clean and comfortable. We ate at the restaurant onsite and it was lovely.

One night stay with 2 of us and 2 kids enroute to Adelaide. We stayed in a family room which was upstairs, had own balcony and bunk beds for the kids. Friendly people, comfortable large and clean room and great restaurant and bar next door. What more could you ask for? Cheers!

We stayed here for just a night--but we all loved it. Rooms are basic (huge)--clean, slightly out-dated in terms of furniture, but everything is clean and in good condition. I had a second story room with a great balcony, those staying on the bottom floor had great access to the lawn. Our group enjoyed a game of bocci ball, various... More

We Only stayed the one night at the Coonawarra lodge with no complaints from us. Lady at the front desk was helpful and very friendly. Room was neat and clean and all that we needed - would defiantly stay again when visiting Penola. Try on the upstairs rooms which have better views. If you love red wines then it's a... More
