Canberra Lyneham Motor Inn

Reviewed July 23, 2014

Accommodation was far better than expected for this price. Clean roomy and in perfect and easy to find location. Hassle free check in and check out. Great stay. Fantastic for the price. Have recommended to all my family. Spotlessly clean. Courteous staff. Will definitely stay here again when in Canberra.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are very quiet and peaceful.

I stayed here a couple of nights while visiting Canberra.

I chose to stay here because I couldn't find vacancy anywhere else.

I didn't like the place very much. The location is very convenient, not too far from the city center, but the quality of my room was quite poor.

The room was chilly, the heater worked for five minutes, died, and after a while started working again for another five minutes. The bathroom was OK, apart from the fact that the toilet was held together with adhesive tape.

I don't feel like recommending this place to other people and I'm pretty sure I won't stay here again.

This was a horrible place to stay. Chose it for convenience and heating as it's middle of winter. Advertised with air con but it didn't work, three bar heater with two bars working, radio didn't work, meant to be twin doubles but got king and single. Single did not have electric blanket. No cutlery, no plates, no toaster. Shower dripped - in addition there seemed a leak, perhaps from the roof? Cracked toilet bowl.... Should I go on? Avoid this one.

Motel is in a good location and the room was spacious, clean and had a heater. It does need a little maintenance however because paint was peeling off the bathroom walls. We were able to park our car under cover outside the room. We were supplied with a toaster and plates so we could make our own breakfast. There is also a microwave in the room to heat up takeaways instead of going to a restaurant for dinner.

Bathroom walls are flacking paint. Telephone doesn't work and is above toilet. Bed was so hard I couldn't sleep in it. Breakfast was apparently included in the price but the restaurant was never open to get breakfast. Service desk didn't open until 2 which was very inconvenient to ask questions like why is the restaurant closed!. Overall very disappointed with this hotel

A good old style motel right in the Capital. Was quite impressed with the place. Room was very clean and well maintained and equipped. You can park under cover right at the door of your room which is great when you have luggage. There is sports ovals behind the motel and across the road if you feel energetic, we kicked the footy around for a bit? We walked to the Tradies Club where they have a great bistro. Heating is good in the room and there was electric blankets as well which we appreciated. I would definitely stay here next time we come thru Canberra.

This motel ticked all our boxes. Clean and tidy. Location is 10 out of 10 close to the city and restaurants and on the direct bus route to Belconnen. Few minutes walk to the restaurant mecca. Room is well equipped. Bed is comfortable. For the central location the room is very quiet and there is a green belt adjacent. Easy to find and access. Staff are extremely helpful. And of course the price is excellent. Would recommend. Pretty good.
