Coonawarra Motor Lodge, Penola
Comfortable, Large Clean Room
Friendly hosts, large clean and confortable room.
Geoff, au1 night trip
Coonawarra Motor Lodge, Penola
Cheap, but consider somewhere quieter
The room was spacious, well-priced and convenient to Penola, Coonawarra, Naracoorte and Mt Gambier which meant wine-tasting, heritage walks, world heritage caves and the beautiful Blue Lake and coast beyond on day trips. We stayed 4 nights and at times it was very noisy. We hadn't realised that Church Street is actually the Riddell Highway and our room was second closest to the road. The on-site restaurant photographed is closed.
