My 19 year old daughter and I did a road trip from near Ballarat to Adelaide via overnights in the Coonawarra. Our suite was spotless and comfortable and the in room DIY breakfast included French Press coffee! (in Australia I usually travel with my own). Small thoughtful touches place this brief stop on our must return list: first bottle of...

We just love Penola, the rooms are the most spacious we have ever stayed in and very comfy beds with a fantastic bathroom. Dined at the "Pipers Restaurant", the meal was beautiful and the service second to none topped of with a "Parker wine" 2010 Terra Rossa, doesn't get much better than that !

We were impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the rooms and grounds, there were also plenty of soap and shampoo in the dispenser. Breakfast consisted of boxes of cereal and yoghurt along with fruit juice and toast which were served in...

This is a Motel. The name infers something else, but it is a lovely convenient spacious motel. Great parking outside great rooms. Microwave and basic breakfast supplies. Enormous bathroom. Supermarket next door open 7am-7pm. Easy walk up to main road shops and cafes. 5 mins drive to Coonawarra. Clean and pleasant. Efficient if not effusive reception.

We first stayed here when it opened 12 years ago and have been back numerous times since. The service and rooms are consistently fantastic. Great location for the wineries too. Once you have experienced the Alexander Cameron Suites you will look forward to returning time and time again.

We had not been to Penola for many years and were passing through on our way home, so we pre booked Alexander Cameron Suites. We were very impressed, but be warned - if you are a lover of small cramped rooms and tiny showers and toilets - these are not the rooms you are you are looking for. The rooms...

Penola is a wonderful little town and this motel is a real gem. Excellent facilities, lovely outlook to central garden and very friendly hosts. The standard of the rooms is exceptional and you will have to be hard to please to find fault. The town has some excellent restaurants and off course you are surrounded by the famed Coonawarra vineyards....

Stayed at this Motel recently with a group that I organise and was completely blown away by the standard and quality of this accommodation, as was all my group. Fantastic!! The rooms are generous in size and the bathroom is unbelievable, would recommend this Motel to anyone as a great place to stay.
