Great location near parks, river and shops. The rooms were nicely renovated and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend and dog friendly. Plenty of room for the tired pooch!

We recently stayed at The Golden Age Motel for a family wedding in Canberra and were so pleased with the service, cleanliness, and great staff at this motel! We arrived as a larger group (from Canada, NZ, and across Australia) and everyone was so impressed! Gavin, Sofi and Nicole went out of their way to make the wedding weekend special and it was much appreciated! All the small touches were noticed, and I doubt we would have received the same attention from a chain hotel in downtown Canberra! We enjoyed the walkability to coffee shops, restaurants and pubs (shout out to the Royal Queanbeyan!) and the easy access to all the sites in Canberra. The place looked to be recently renovated and was very very clean. Thanks to all for a memorable weekend!

This motel was very affordable so I was pleasantly surprised that the rooms were so large, so clean and lovely. Great location, short walk to shops & cafes. We did self-serve check in which went smoothly.
