Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

This is our second time to Penola and to Cameron’s Cottage. It truly is a credit to the owners who have restored it after doing lots of research, being sympathetic to its origins and in keeping with the original. All the details are recorded for you to read about. I loved staying here it was cosy and homely whilst getting a feel for the history, a true gem! The breakfast is delicious I am sure we will come again.

Management response:

Thank you so much for your lovely review, yes we agree the cottage is quite a special place indeed. Looking forward to your return.

Reviewed 3 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This cottage was originally owned by the founder of Penola, Alexander Cameron.It has bern beautifully renovated and modernised without losing any of the ambience of such a historic place. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay there and found it was a great base for exploring further afield, down to Mt Gambier, across to Robe on the Coast, and of course the Coonawarra wineries.

Management response:

Thank you for reviewing Cameron's Cottage and we are so thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. The Limestone Coast certainly has a lot to offer and we try to make sure the cottage provides everything you need when away from home.
