The unit being set back from the road did not suffer from vehicle noise.Of the four nights we stayed there, only once were we woken early by a flock of birds. The included breakfast was bread for toast with butter and jam/marmalade or Vegemite, pack of breakfast cereal and fruit...

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 !

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.
