Old style hospitality standards in this modern world are a blessing to find. Friendly and helpful staff, clean and well equipped rooms, comfortable bed and reasonably priced. Highly recommend this property as all round good value

Stayed for the night. It was clean, modern and welcoming. The included Small breakfast (coffee and baked goods) went down a treat. Was affordable and competitively priced. Close to everything. Noise levels were pretty good for being next to a busy road. Will stay again. Thanks.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Golden Age Motel in Queanbeyan recently. Our stay was first class in all respects, ie reception, room etc. Having the complimentary coffee and pastries in reception was a nice touch also. We would recommend this establishment to all travellers.

Room was very spacious with a lounge. Bed was great and bathroom updated and modern. Wonderful lady at front counter. On busy road but was surprisingly very quiet, good location with easy pathway walk to local shops and club...cant go wrong staying here.

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!
