Stayed at this Motel recently with a group that I organise and was completely blown away by the standard and quality of this accommodation, as was all my group. Fantastic!! The rooms are generous in size and the bathroom is unbelievable, would recommend this Motel to anyone as a great place to stay.

So we arrived 20 minutes before the 1 in 50 year storm hit. No power, no hot water, no phone reception, no heating and a downright miserable night. None of this of course has anything to do with the quality of this place. They did everything that they could to help the situation. It's a spacious and very comfortable place...

This motel features clean and spacious rooms and bathrooms. Convenient for visiting the Coonawarra wine region. Friendly service and free wifi. DIY continental breakfast in your room was adequate. Just 300m from Pipers of Penola so we were able to walk to and from our dinner and enjoy wine with it without worrying about driving.
