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.

What a little gem. It had big hotel amenities and more but little price. Kitchenette, luggage rack, couch, table and chairs. A real little home away from home right in the heart of Cowra, backing onto supermarket and bottle shop. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for 4 nights with a group of 25 (bowlers and partners). We booked the whole motel and couldn’t have been happier. For many of us it was a return visit having been there in 2018 with the previous owners. I booked for all of us and right from my first contact with Jan and later Belinda and Allana the whole experience was a pleasure. They could not have been more obliging and provided us with excellent service and spotlessly clean rooms. All rooms are spacious and have a well-equipped kitchenette making it easy to make our own breakfasts. The beds were comfortable, the showers hot and strong. I can honestly say I received not one negative comment from anyone in our group. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cowra Crest to others as in my opinion the quiet and convenient location, service, comfort and cleanliness levels were as close to perfect as we could have hoped for.

Friendly greeting by a lovely, courteous owner. Room was spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable. Special request for a comfortable lounge chair was wonderfully met by the inclusion of an electric recliner chair. Could not have asked for any better service. Our third stay here but the last was over 6 years ago under different owners. Current owners are doing a fantastic job. Thank you so much.😃

Part of a longer journey our stay was very brief but our group of 2 couples found the service, room facilities and cleanliness first class. On exploring eating option s on Sunday night, the advice was very helpful. The rating of 4+ is appropriate.

Although the room is very dated the room it was clean and ample crockery and cutlery was provided. However, the low star rating is probably an indication of the low level of service provided. I placed a card provided by management with instructions to Please Make Up My Room on the outside of our door before we left the motel for the day. I was very disappointed when we returned that evening to find the card still on the outside of the door and my request to make up our room had been totally ignored. Also, the complimentary milk and toiletries had not been replenished. The office was not opening again until 9am so I didn't know who to contact in order to get the items we needed and to find out why our room had not been made up.

We can only respond by saying that we are VERY disappointed at your comments and ratings which we believe are totally unfounded. You did not leave a make up my room sign out and I can assure you that both myself and my Head Cleaning member checked ALL the rooms that day for any servicing required. We also have an Information sheet in the welcome folder which clearly states that we provide initial milk/tea/coffee/toiletries etc but should you require any further items there is a Supermarket at our back gate - although in saying that we regularly give Guests additional supplies if asked. Our Reception was open 9am-7pm so no idea why you could not come and speak to us - AND we have a front doorbell for when the Reception is closed with a sign asking Guests to press it and wait and we would have come and spoken with you. We pride ourselves on the standard of service we provide to Guests and 99% of our Ratings reflect those -j ust disappointed that you could not speak face to face with us about any issues you may have had. Jan @ the Crest Motel Cowra

Clean, comfortable and pleasant place to stay. The room was spacious and well furnished, bed comfortable. Microwave, sink, crockery and cutlery toaster etc. - but no wine glasses! Bathroom and shower good - good pressure and temperature -although mirror in bathroom placed too high for me to see myself and I am 160cm. - a nuisance when trying to dry my hair, as the mirror in bedroom had no power point near it. Lthugh on main street, the rooms were set well back and traffic noise was inaudible. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Woolworth was 50 metres away - helpful for supplies and there were plenty of eating places nearby. Would stay there again.

This motel has some glowing reviews which did not quite match our experience. The good: The room appears to be spotless and everything works perfectly. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. Beds are comfortable and shower pressure is good. We had a lovely takeaway from Hong Kong Chinese just down the road. The not so good: The noise from the air conditioner might annoy some people. Rooms aren't serviced daily so you leave towels on the chair outside if you want new ones. The ugly: There is a notice above the sink about a black ant infestation affecting Cowra. As per instructions, my partner went to put our Chinese takeaway remnants in a garbage bag and take them to the skip bin at the back of the motel. He then discovered that the bin was still full of garbage from the previous occupants. He ended up taking both lots of rubbish to the skip. Overall: We had a very pleasant stay; however, if black ants are an issue, not emptying the previous occupants' rubbish and servicing daily would seem like carelessness. For that reason, I can't really recommend this motel and will stay elsewhere next time.

Responded 1 July 2022
We maintain a VERY high cleaning standard in line with the Covid Guidelines and I can only apologise for the bin issue - I have spoken to my Staff and have been assured it will not happen again and I now check rooms once cleaned. This has never happened in the 10 months we have been operating the Motel. As for the Ant issue - as the sign says it is a Cowra wide issue (one we inherited when we took over) and we have had the pest control in 4 times over the past 6 months - have not had any ants since! It is more to alert Guests not to leave food etc out. Also - we are always happy to Service rooms for longer stays and also on request but if you are only staying 1/2 or 3 days there is not generally a need to do this. You only had to ask or put your sign out on the door and it would have been done. Sad that after all our excellent reviews you have chosen to be very negative rather than coming into Reception and speaking to us whilst you were staying here and giving us the opportunity to address your complaints.

Jan is an excellent host, caring but not interfering, extremely helpful and kind! Clean! Quiet, Woolies/BWS/Chemist out the back gate (150 metres max). Couple of eateries within 5 min walk or great Chinese across the road! Great location, park out the front of your door!

We have stayed here several times and wouldn't change anything. It is a great location, very quiet and close to everything. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with a handy kitchenette and as always our room was spotlessly clean. New owners have taken over since our last visit and they have maintained the high standard and were very pleasant to deal with. We will back.
