Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A group of us were in Penola for a dinner at a local restaurant. The suites are very central and I was so pleased I booked this accommodation. The room was spacious and well appointed. Very comfortable bed with great pillows. Bathroom also spacious with all amenities. Continental breakfast in the tariff with quality products. A great experience, will definitely stay again if over that way.

Stayed here one night on our way to great ocean road. Lovely big rooms, clean, small area to sit out in front and back. Lots of noisy birds around, mainly dawn & dusk. Friendly staff. Great value stop over. Breakfast provided in the fridge, not the best but adequate.

A very good experience from the time we checked in to when we left. A very large and comfortable room with an excellent bathroom. Because we had booked direct for two nights we received a complimentary bottle of Coonawarra red wine. There was also a complimemtary continental breakfast each morning.

Without question, this is one of the best regional motels we’ve ever stayed at. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean, absolutely comfortable in every way. Quality appliances (kettle, toaster, hair dryer) were such a nice change from the usual ‘cheapest will do’ approach. The included continental breakfast was the usual components but all very nice and most generous too. Can’t recommend this lovely accommodation highly enough.

Ideal accommodation in a pretty garden setting in the heart of Penola. My Queen suite was exceptionally clean and surprisingly spacious. The bathroom was also very large and spotless, with lovely soft towels. Generous continental breakfast included along with a supply of bottled water, tea, coffee and fresh milk. Paul and Tania are very welcoming and friendly hosts. Thank you! Catherine M.

After several days on the road from WA what a joy it was staying at Alexander Cameron. Very spacious well appointed suite, excellent management and staff who provided great advice regarding walking distance from a great pub Royal Oak and an even better restaurant Pipers of Penola. Not to mention several well known wineries within walking distance as well. Alexander Cameron’s beds were fabulous equipped with electric blankets . A continental breakfast was also provided. Throughly recommended.
