Highly recommend this hotel if staying in Penola. The rooms are spacious and perfectly clean and well maintained. Bathrooms are large and the in room kitchenette is very handy. The continental breakfast was great and more than we expected so overall the hotel is great value and a nice place to stay as you enjoy the local wineries. Easy parking...

The manager was extremely helpful, all the recommendations on places to eat and which wineries to visit were very good. If I ever visit the area again,...

Penola is my preferred stopover point when driving from Adelaide to Melbourne or vice versa. I have stayed in a number of places in Penola, some more luxurious than this property, some cheaper than this property, but none with better wheelchair access or better value. The wheelchair accessible room has a queen and single bed, kitchenette and bathroom with roll-in...

We spent 2 nights here so that we could spend some time visiting the local wineries. Penola is such a lovely little town.

We stayed in this motel while coming from Adelaide returning to Melbourne. It is situated next to a supermarket on the main road however it was a quiet location. The rooms and bathroom were very big.
