We loved staying at Cameron's Cottage and will certainly look at staying there again in the future. Thank you for supplying cereal/bread, spread and some fruit for a breakfast. Although we didn’t eat it, as we had already brought along our own food and I am gluten intolerant - it was a lovely gesture and one guests would appreciate, especially if they arrive after the IGA closes (another perk, having the IGA up the road). The garden was absolutely beautiful and even though we stayed during Winter (icy cold evenings/mornings) we rugged up and were still able to sit outside and read during the day; so many little nooks and crannies. We can only imagine how lovely it would be in Spring/Summer. Loved the little sitting room for breakfast too. We deliberately came during Winter as it’s our favourite time of year and rugging up in the cold is easy to do. The entire cottage has been renovated so well and was decked out beautifully and the history of the cottage was also a very interesting read. This, along with other little welcoming touches through the whole cottage were much appreciated. The town centre is very easy walking distance and offers so many gorgeous shops and coffee stops! Jill's Vintage was a definite favourite! Coonawarra Experiences also picked us up from our doorstep for a lovely day at the Coonawarra, hassle free. Thank you Cate for your exceptional communication. We loved it!

Arrived here last Tuesday for a three night stay and could not have been happier with our accommodation. Clean, spacious and complete with all the amenities that we would want in a self contained space. Wifi works brilliantly. Shower hot and full. Close to all that Penola and the Coonawarra has to offer. Was particularly impressed with their booking process and the emails to let us know before we arrived that the key would be in our room and we had no need to check in. Brilliant during these Covid19 times. Excellent stay.

A MUST is a cracking good spot to spend a night or two when visiting the Coonawarra. The MUST team is welcoming, the rooms deliver a comfortable stay and Penola is a great stop. We chose the added touch of a bottle of chilled wine for our arrival. Great idea!

My wife and I stayed booked this place based on great reviews on Tripadvisor and Google. We weren't disappointed. We were made most welcome by the owner (sorry I didn't get your name) and the rooms were extremely comfortable with plenty of space. They have everything in them you could possibly expect and we couldn't have asked for anywhere better to stay. And it is so well located. We couldn't recommend it more hightly.
