As my wife was on crutches following hip tendon surgey we requested a ground floor room. This was provided in a very spacious and modern room. The proprietor was most helpful and friendly during our 2 night stay. Room was clean and continental breakfast provided to our room which had a jug and toaster, glasses etc all provided. Nice and...

Recently we did a road trip in Victoria and discovered this very clean and comfortable Motor Lodge . It's in Penola on the road to many of the Coonawarra vineyards. We stayed here to do some wine tasting. The room was spacious and modern and the owner very friendly and helpful. It also shared the main building with a very... More

Stay: 1 night The room had a queen and a single bed which were comfy. The bathroom was quite modern. Everything was clean. I liked that the air/con was away from the beds so you could keep it running during night. The value for money was very good. I would recommend this hotel and sleep there again if I come... More

Just on the edge of town so just a few minutes walk into the centre which has a great choice of places to eat for a small town (I suppose being on the southern edge of the Coonawarra wine region helps!). Everything we needed including WiFi and everyone was very friendly. Great base for heading north for the wines.

Halfway through our six month road trip we stayed here for six nights. Excellent welcome from Brooke on reception and the room turned out to be one of the very best. Although it was on the upper level it was ideal. King sized bed, balcony overlooking grassed BBQ and alfresco dining area and a fantastic cathedral ceiling. Very light and... More

The room was clean, large and nicely decorated and much more up to date than many of the motels we've stayed in. It was well equipped. Lovely garden that you could sit in. Good location. We didn't use the restaurant so I can't comment on that. The owner was very friendly. Lovely comfy bed and a good shower. The only... More

Some cutlery and crockery for use. A kettle and a toaster and mini bar fridge. Only a few minutes drive to the local Coonawarra wineries. Off street... More

Fantastic service and extremely spacious rooms, I wish all motels I stay in were this good. Great breakfast in the morning, and extremely clean. It would be hard to fault these guys! Also the room was very cheap! Would 100% stay there again as the Coonawarra is a great part of Oz.
