A group of 10 people from Melbourne occupying 5 rooms over a period of 5 nights, gathered once again at the Coonawarra Lodge in Penola, SA. Mine hosts, Max and Dianne once again exceeded all expectations as they made us all feel at home and even found time to socialize with us. If there is an award for best hosts, they would win hands down. Facilities at the motel are excellent. Plenty of on site parking. Whilst we stayed for 5 nights, it is the perfect location (half-way) between Adelaide and Melbourne to break your journey. I would recommend this motel at the drop of a hat.

Room tip: All rooms are equally located within the complex.

A big thanks for the review and so pleased your time spent with us was enjoyable.
It was a pleasure to host such happy and welcoming group and we certainly appreciate the invitation to join in and the friendships developed over the few days.

Hope you enjoy your fine collection of Reds

We stayed here for one night and had a very pleasant stay. The room is quite large, the bed comfortable and we had a great shower. There is plenty of tea and coffee provided and a toaster for hot toast in the morning. We ordered room service for breakfast and it arrived on time and hot - and was very nice too! Our room was downstairs and we could not hear any noise from other guests or the road.

The "Pick of the Bunch" ... this lovely Limestone Coast Motel continues to offer wonderful, spotless accommodation. Our outstanding hosts Max and Dianne, provide excellent service from the first phone call/email to the last wave goodbye as we leave. Penola is filled with history, culture, architecture, heritage, great places to eat and lots to do. Visit soon.....you won't be disappointed

We decided to stop in Penola on our way to the Clare valley and on our way back from the Clare valley. This meant we would break our journey from Melbourne to Clare and return.
The motel is currently up for lease but still our room was clean and comfortable and we were made feel welcome.- Meals are no longer available but there are some snacks in the fridge. The shower was great , parking easy and the position of the motel is very good for access to the township and the many wineries.
Also the staff were friendly and helpful

Room tip: We stayed in a room on the first floor and then a room on the ground floor - Both largish and comfortable

We stayed here one night on our way to Adelaide. This was a great little hotel to stay in on our way to Adelaide. The person on check in was helpful and suggested some places to eat down the road. The room was very clean and inviting to stay in. The hotel had good internet access. The town has a bottle shop, some cafe's to eat in and a grocery store. I would stay here again.
