I stayed here on the night of the 100 mile dinner when guests (who purchase a ticket) are seated at tables which are set up in the Main Street and all food served comes from within a 100 mile radius) and was very impressed. It may not be hip and furnished in the minimalist style common to many city hotels... More

After staying at this FABULOUS motel for the 100 Mile Dinner at Canowindra and then reading the reviews, I am of the opinion that Jovan K must have had an ulterior motive for rubbishing the place. Perhaps he has shares in this other place in Canowindra that he mentions? I stayed with a friend for two nights. 100% on the... More

Stayed here twice this month (once in the riverview cottage and then in the motel section). Rooms are very clean ans spacious. It is a walk to the main street and staff are very friendly and helpful, with a great price to match. I would recommend staying here.

My experience differs from the other reviewers. To be as objective as possible, I have waited several days before I wrote this. For my $95 - I had no hot water available when I needed it for a shower at 2am. While running the tap to try to get some hot water to start flowing, a septic smell started emanating... More

I attended the room immediately to investigate the hot water and smell issue with the gentleman in toe. The hot water worked and there was no smell. It became clear the allegations were not passing the smell test as our cleaning staff commence work at 9am.(not 6.30) I am happy to accept constructive criticism however this is just unreasonable.

We were part of a larger group that was staying at the Riverview Motel whilst visiting the Age of Fishes museum and Balloon Joy Flights in Canowindra. The rooms were beautifully clean and the continental breakfasts, which were delivered the night before, consisted of a few choices of cereal, bread to toast, jam, margarine and juice. Other meals were not... More

What a great find, clean, modern, roomy. The beds and pillows must be new, so comfortable had Electric blankets and Aircon that runs quietly which was a bonus. Had the best sleep. Friendly staff value for money wouldn't bother looking else where, I have tried others in Canowindra but will come back here. Easy walk down main street for cafés... More

Beautiful large rooms and very clean. Nothing too much trouble. Well worth staying. Family stayed as our son was celebrating his 40th birthday so had a number of rooms booked which were all of a high standard. Shame city hotel rooms are not of the same high standard!

What a little gem. Stayed here in July 2014 on a business trip as I did not want to stay in Cowra. Glad I decided to stay here. Rooms were very clean and the customer service, simply awesome. Canowindra is a quiet little town, however you will hear the odd heavy vehicle passby at times, but don't let that deter... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The air conditioning heated the room well and was very quiet. Electric blanket were very much appreciated at this time of the year. The usual facilities - tea/coffee making, fresh milk (no long life stuff - yeah!), fridge and the microwave was a great bonus. Short walk... More
