I booked the 4 person room, but on arrival realised it would be too small for our group of 4 adults (it would suit a family with young children though it is at the front of the motel). Checked with the office - the staff member could not have been more helpful. Moved us to the five person room at... More

This was quite a good motel. We were greeted by friendly smiling people who were eager to help. Rooms were nice and big and clean. I have been to a lot of motels and I am still puzzled as to why 99% of them have the same ugly 70s bedspreads. I am assuming it's becasue they only need to wash... More

Sorry it took so long to respond. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree about the bedspreads as we have changed 15 out of our 19 rooms, unfortunately we still have 4 to do as funds allow, but yes we will have them changed as well soon. Hopefully if you come back for a visit in the future... More

just spent three night at Aalana whilst in Cowra for a family event. I had three great nights sleep. The beds are comfortable and the rooms spacious and clean. The hosts are helpful and friendly. The location is also very good. Great to see the Foxtel and free wifi also. Recommend staying when in Cowra.

Stayed here for one night. IT was a VERY cold day so I appreciated the efficient (and whisper quiet) heating as well as the electric blanket. Close to town, next door to a KFC and other food choices were across the road. Even though this motel is on the main road, I didn't hear any traffic noise at night and... More

We were very happy with our choice of the Aalana for our two-night stay in Cowra. Location is excellent - we walked one short block to the Services' Club for dinner.
