Coonawarra Getaway
Max greeted us with enthusiasm & knowledge of the area by providing verbal & physical recommendations. The room was clean & nicely warmed for us on a cold Coonawarra/Penola day! The room was large in comparison to the newer hotels and had a lovely garden view through the glass sliding doors.
