A short drive from the Canberra airport the motel is located in a quiet outlying suburb, the very edge bordering on the rural margins and provides very basic, comfortable and clean rooms. The buildings and grounds are a little dated. Parking is directly outside of the rooms. I tried the bistro only once, the 'big' breakfast was lukewarm and not... More

I am not one to normally write a review however I do believe I should make the effort in this case. I have stayed at this motel several times and every time I have been greeted with a friendly smile and a warm welcome, even when I have arrived late at night. The staff must look at their records to... More

The hotel was great value for money with two bedrooms, kitchen and comfy beds. Used senior card to get value for money. Bit out of the way but quiet. Will def stay there again. Roomy and great beds. Thanks

A quiet spot, close to where I had a meeting. Not up to usual Best Western. A series of small buildings provided some privacy. Shower was excellent, bed comfortable. Kitchen had right stuff. not near restaurants, menu of their bistro uninteresting. You need to bring the food to cook or spend minimum $30 on home delivered plus a $10 delivery... More

This is a very very good motel complex. From the initial service at the desk to the final check out the staff at the Sundowner couldn't be more friendly. The rooms are very spacious, air con & heaters & it was very quiet. We would DEFINATELY stay there again

I have stayed at a number of motels all around Australia and always just after something basic but all needs covered. This place has gone well beyond that! The staff are all so accommodating, rooms so clean and spacious, heating facilities, tennis court and super comfort. There are a lot of places to choose from across Canberra however for price...

Stayed for two nights over long weekend. Great price. Clean tidy. Friendly staff. Nice pool for kids to swim in. Just far enough from middle of canberra to not be busy but close enough to easily travel back and forth only 5-10 mins drive. Recommend for families on a budget.

The owner is fantastic in the way that she greets you and goes out of her way to help you. My husband and i have not been here for 5 years with the most noticeable thing being: everything is just as well cared for as it was 5 years ago. Would recommend this place to anyone!

The Sundown Motel is not a flashy resort but it does have a lot going for it. The rooms were spacious, very clean and have kitchen facilities which always make a family holiday a bit cheaper. The unit has a separate room with a queen bed. The main room has two single beds, a lounge, dinning table and the kitchen.... More

Very basic on the edge of town. The room we were in, 229, had a hot water service on the other side of the wall which made it very hard to sleep. Pokey drive way with garden up to both side car doors of our landcruiser ( large car to be fair) . Staff were pleasant, check in and out... More
