A total of 10 friends visiting the Penola/Coonawarra area from July 5th to 11th for the annual Cellar Dwellers month in July. We all stayed at the Alexander Cameron Suites and enjoyed warm hospitality, large and well appointed clean and well kept rooms.

We stayed there for one night when travelling from Adelaide SA to Melbourne Vic. The property is well maintained by a couple who show an interest in their property. Room was large and the bed comfortable. Breakfast (included in cost) was in room when we arrived. It was sufficient for what we needed in the morning. It also allows those... More

Very helpful staff at reception. The rooms are quite large by motel standards, with an extra large bathroom, which would be suitable for a person with mobility issues. The a/c was great especially as it was so cold, warmed the room up quite quickly. Breakfast provisions available in the room - cereal, milk, juice, yoghurt & bread for toast, butter,... More

The location is fantastic for the vineyards and the little town. There's a pub on the corner and a great restaurant nearby. The room was nice and sufficient. The only thing that people may want to note is that the water is incredibly soft (so it may be difficult to wash long hair!) but of course this isn't something that... More

We spent two nights at this reasonably modern motel. Access was easy and it was a three minute walk to the centre of town. The rooms were spacious and generally well presented but there was no 'comfy chair' to sit at to read or watch television - you either used the bed or an uncomfortable desk chair. A generous breakfast... More
