Our room was very comfortable and clean. We were supplied with ample breakfast items and a coffee machine. Located at the end of the main strip, it is very close to cafes, restaurants and pubs and right next door to a supermarket. It is also very close to Mary McKillop Centre and Petticoat Lane and opposite a great walking track that stretches through grazing land and park land. It is a very short drive from the Coonawarra cellar doors so it is handy to everything.

I could not rate this motel more highly for a central place to stay in Penola to explore the Mary MacKillop experience and of course access to the Coonawarra wine region. First thing I noticed was the abundance of car parks right outside each room, so no lugging bags around. The rooms were clean and massive with king sized bed, dining table, couch, desk space, excellent free wifi and the bathroom with walk in shower is bigger than some rooms I have stayed in during my worldly travels. Continental breakfast is provided in the room with cereals, yoghurt, bread (with toaster included) and a Nespresso coffee maker with pods. Housekeeping was excellent, I really can't fault this property. For a meal, one of the two local pubs is only five minutes walk up the road, along with the IGA supermarket. Thank you so much Paul & Tania, this property is a credit to you.

Paul went above and beyond and picked up a take way dinner for me whilst I was isolating awaiting a Covid test result after crossing the border. The rooms are large and clean and the motel is a great stopover on the way to Adelaide from Vic

We have been trying to get to Penola for 35 years and finally we make it after several missed opportunities. After much research we decided on staying at this motel for 2 nights and couldn’t be happier the two hosts Paul and Tania were very accommodating and couldn’t be more helpful. We stayed in the south side Queen deluxe room which was very spacious. There was Two seat lounge and plenty of desk space luggage space and kitchenette which was well supplied with a coffee maker etc. The bathroom was large with plenty of great lighting throughout. The towels are very large and soft and of cause the bed was soft which is a must when travelling. We Highly recommend that you book direct and get a free bottle of wine on arrival as we missed this because we booked through a third party. 😖 Mark and Anne Sydney Australia
