Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is an affordable, comfortable and quiet country motel within walking distance of restaurants, pubs etc. We were on a road trip, so we appreciated the helpful touches of a fridge, fresh milk for tea and coffee, microwave, crockery, cutlery etc, so that we could self cater breakfast and make lunch packs. The hotel also offers substantial breakfast packs. We would not hesitate to return.

So often the Accessible Accommodation is tucked away, the worst room in the motel but not here! Often when the accessible factor might comply with wheelchair needs, it presents major difficulties to the Ambulatory impaired, but not here! The Accessible room was great!! There was a lovely grassy area outside with table and chairs. The bed was high (important when you don't have leg strength to push up). The walk in shower had a shower seat available, a non-slip mat, plenty of grab rails and great drainage and a long shower curtain that meant the whole floor was not wet and slippery after use. The toilet was a good height with plenty of grab bars. While the room/motel may be old, they have done so many smart updates (love the powerpoint and phone chargers above the bed). So often for us "walking distance to restaurants" doesn't apply but here it did : there is a fantastic chinese across the road. A lovely stay.

Room was very clean. Bed was comfortable & plenty of hot water for showers. Cowra was freezing on the weekend but the room air con kept it toasty warm and electric blankets on bed a lovely extra touch. Tea & coffee facilities. In main street so walking distance to everything.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights over Christmas. We chose this motel over others we’ve stayed at in Cowra, because they offered breakfast. Except when we checked in, we found out that they weren’t offering breakfast because the cook was away. Fortunately, we had time for a quick trip to the supermarket (conveniently located) to get supplies, and the motel provided crockery and cutlery. The room servicing was also pretty perfunctory - scaled down service because of Christmas, but I don’t think prices were scaled down. On the plus side, it’s in a good location, decent sized rooms, aircon and wifi both worked well, and the shower has good water pressure.

The room had a strange smell, almost like a dog type of smell. However after being in it for a while, one didn't notice it any more. For some reason I got charged $10 more than the internet rate when I booked over the phone. Oh well, that must be the price I thought, but left a bad impression of the standard of hospitality. The room, which was near the back of the property, was warm and very quiet and I could sleep pretty well. The room had a connecting door to the next room and I could clearly hear the neighbours. Luckily they went to sleep early otherwise it would have been very annoying. It's OK for a night's sleep but not the sort of place you'd want to spend much time. Would look elsewhere next time

This is our second stay at the Aalana Motor Inn. On a return trip to Cowra, we had no hesitation in staying there. It has everything you need in a motel....microwave, cutlery, crockery, tea/coffee etc but our priority when staying overnight somewhere is the bed. The Alaana certainly has the best beds without a doubt. We stayed in Room 3 this time and Room 2 last time. The mattress has a topper which ensures a good night's sleep. The motel is in the main street but there is absolutely no noise heard in the units. Will most certainly stay again when next in Cowra.

Not a great start with the motel refusing to accept the $50 NSW Accommodation Vouchers. Very uncomfortable mattress. The shower was suitable for a dwarf but an average size person had to squat down to take advantage of the stream. Would not stay here again.

The location of Aalana Motor Inn is very convenient for families - it is very close to shops, churches and the peace bell. Although the design is somewhat old, our room was very clean and the kids slept really well.
Check-in and check out was really smooth, too.

We didn't expect a heatwave when we planned our trip to Cowra. Thankfully the Aalana motel had very efficient air conditioning. The room was very clean, the shower was terrific and the bed was super comfortable. The room was quiet-the brick structure keeps the noise from the next door rooms to a zero..a bonus.. Although we were there for 3 nights, the shampoo, conditioner and body wash dispensers were not filled, during service, and a couple were empty for our last morning shower. No worries..we had our own to fall back on. This is a well above average motel and we would recommend it.

We booked 2 rooms as I had elderly parents with me. The rooms were generous, clean and well set out. The owner put in a grab rail for my parents bathroom which was terrific. I would suggest they get another one so that the toilet and shower can have a grab rail making it safer for people with a mobility problem. I commend them on at least having one however.
Breakfast was not great hence 4 stars not 5.
I would definitely choose to stay there again if I travel to Cowra in the future.
