“Country hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Stayed for one week while on business. Great friendly service and comfortable rooms. Breakfast provided each day and IGA right next door for those last minute needs. Will definitely definitely stay again when visiting the region.

After a less than satisfying experience on the Murray Princess we were delighted to find this little gem in Penola on our way home to Melbourne. The room was clean and spacious, the bed was extremely comfortable and the location was excellent - close to everything yet very quiet.

The manager was very obliging, we would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends without hesitation

It really is an excellent motel. I would recommend it to my friends. Manager was very pleasant and helpful, breakfast was very good, bed good, perhaps brighter lighting would have been good because I am a sewer

We recently stayed at Alexander Cameron for 3 nights and we were greeted by a friendly, happy face when we arrived. Nothing was to much of a problem as we were arriving late and there was the suggestion of several places for dinner. The room was spacious, clean and warm. The continental breakfast in our room was fantastic and a great way to start a day wine tasting. The suggest to improve to rooms is a heater in the bathrooms on a cold winters morning. Other wise we are really glad we found this place as we visit Penola every year in July and we will defiantly be back.

Lovely cozy rooms but very spacious and clean. generous amounts of space and a good set up. car parking easy and close to units.
Staff are lovely and friendly. plenty of info on local attractions and places to eat and drink.
I used these units for a day at a time each few months for a few years. each visit was always great.

I will return and recommend it to family friends and work colleagues.

We stayed one night, arriving late and leaving early. It was nice to arrive with the lights on and the room warm. I liked the spacious room and breakfast was all ok. Everything we needed was there. Could do with a heater in the bathroom on a frosty Penola morning!

We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite at the Alexander Cameron Motel for two nights. We were pleasantly surprised at how roomy the suite was. Plenty of room for two couples without getting in each others way. The suite was very roomy, clean and quiet. The continental breakfast was more than enough for us to start the day.

The local IGA supermarket (with very friendly staff) is located next door. The motel is a pleasant walk into the main street of Penola. Although it is located at the other end of Penola, it is still well situated for visiting the wonderful Coonawarra wineries.

I would like to thank you so much for your kind comments on Trip Advisor by offing you a free upgrade on your next visit or if you require the 2 bed room unit again a $10 per night discount. Thanks to people like you we have an increased occupancy.
