“Happy Harry”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Genuinely dog-friendly accommodation is hard to come by, especially on the main travel routes, so it was a great relief to find this quiet hotel settled amongst the vines and hills of the central west. My little doggie and I were made to feel right at home with treats on arrival, a gorgeous outlook and a generous breakfast to start the next day. There was oodles of space both inside and out and there was no talk of kennels, leads, or dogs off the furniture. Bliss! With a pool to cool down in, a verandah to read a book on and vineyards and open space on all sides to exercise even the craziest pooch, this place was a animal traveller's dream!

Room Tip: There's just six rooms in this hotel set on a rise well away from the nearest road, so all the r...

It was delightful to have you and Harry stay with us, and we appreciated your lovely comments on Trip Advisor. We certainly hope you will stay with us again, and that you will tell all your friends and family about us - especially the 4 legged furry ones.

The most friendly hosts I have ever encountered when travelling. Superb location away from traffic -with only six suites extremely quiet and peaceful. First class facilities in all respects. Made to feel "one of the family" - Wendy and Ken most kind and for Maxine ( Labrador dog) nothing was a trouble - good exercise paddock. Highly recommended which I have already done.

Room Tip: All rooms have have two entrances - the second being on to a covered verandah with a ta ble and chai...

Wendy, you are a gem! Your hospitality was a god send. You made me feel welcome, comfortable and like a friend all at the same time. The complimentary breakfast was a treat. The room was clean and very spacious. I especially love the location. The Vineyard Motel Cowra is gorgeous!! Highly recommended and will certainly be back :)

Our second stay at The Vineyard was on a hot late December day so we made good use of the pool an bbq facilities. We came prepared, having bought meat at a local butcher, and salad and potatoes, which we par-cooked in our room's microwave before finishing off on the bbq. Wendy supplied everything else we needed - plates, bowls, cutlery, condiments, oil, etc, which made it all so easy.

The verandah was a nice shaded place to eat our tasty bbq, then back to the pool for an after-dinner swim. And our spacious room was comfortable and airy, with beautiful views front and back.

Our two stays so far have just been one-nighters on our way to northern NSW from Victoria, but we'll go back for a longer stay in a few months to enjoy the autumnal tones of the lovely location as well as many of the interesting things that Cowra has to offer.

Thank you Sue so very much for your kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to another stayover in the near future. It is about 40 degrees today, so I think your choice of coming in Autumn sounds wonderful - although I must admit the pool is just delicious.

What a delight it was to stay here! This is not your "run of the mill" motel. The Vineyard Motel is really quite picturesque, in an idyllic location only minutes from town, yet in a tranquil spot among the vines. Upon arrival, we humans and our kelpie crosses, Rupert and Douglas, were instantly made to feel at home by our warm and welcoming hostess, Wendy-Jane. We were immediately impressed when she was not perturbed by the usual raucous from our loutish brutes in the back of the car when we attempted to greet her. We were also grateful for the advice she gave us with regards to local eateries and portion sizes. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to returning with the rest of the family and hopefully staying a little longer!

Perfect spot amongst the vines to relax after a days driving in the Central West. Well positioned to enjoy the view of an afternoon over a drink or breakfast on the veranda in the morning while planning the day ahead. A few minutes drive from town and well recommended.

We were looking for somewhere relaxing, no airs and graces and a place to sit and enjoy. Being a dog owner we had the added pleasure of having our Cavalier King Charles, Baxter, staying with us. That in itself is a rare treat as finding pet friendly accommodation is not easy. The room was spacious and very comfortable and our host Wendy Jane was a treasure.
