“Very clean, good location, caring staff”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We booked outside Canberra because everything reasonable was booked. Very lucky, Queanbeyan turned out to be a nice town, Leagues Motel has a very good location, just on the bank of quite picturesque river at the bridge, Leagues Club across the river, shopping center across, on the other side of the bridge, park. Our room (#12) was very clean, a lot of mirrors, nice bed, kitchenette with sink, fridge, microwave, kettle, tee coffee, milk, biscuits, set of plates/cutlery for two, big tv, two seater, chair and coffee table. Everything in good condition and very clean. The lady at the reception called us to warn about the road closure on the day of our arrival (175 years of the town celebration) and then called again to let us know that the road is open. We stayed just one night, did not check other services. I can only say that they are pet friendly, and it's 15 min. drive to Canberra. In comparison to Canberra central location prices, this is very good value for money. Walk along the river is very nice. I will be back

Glad you took the time to write a review. Thanks for your complimentary comments regarding Motel and staff. All comments will be passed on to staff. We have tried to ensure guests are as comfortable as possible. Agree we are in a prime location, close to town yet being on the river gives a country feel.
Thanks again look forward to meeting you both again.

Yes we are back again, and rooms and staff are still great. Prices still very reasonable and main plus is proximity to Canberra. Once again we went to eat at Leagues Club, but we left and found canton Chinese around the corner. See review for this restaurant. Food at club was more expensive than before stick to special nights, if they still have them. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants within a couple of hundred metres of hotel over the river. Take time and take the small walk.
Rooms have all that you need. Only complaint is , the water in the showers run everywhere, so DON'T put anything on the floor. Kitchenette is very handy and has all you need for a couple of night. Beds are comfy and rooms are quiet.
We will return. Only 15 minutes to Canberra central and 10 minutes to airport. 2 and half hours to Jindabyne.

Room Tip: We have only stayed on ground floor since refurb last year.

This motel room is compact, with a lovely modern bathroom and kitchenette area. Very comfy beds, large TV. Very friendly staff, nice welcome. Very clean with quality bed linen. There is a microwave, cutlery, plates, bowls etc. kettle, toaster, fridge, milk supplied, along with t bags coffee, biscuits etc.
For an overnight stay this motel is more than adequate. There is a park opposite which was good for our toddler to explore after we arrived. We drove to the main shops tho you could walk over the bridge. We ate at The Strip, which is a wildfire pizza restaurant on the main high street and would recommend this as a place to dine. There is a coles just over the footbridge in the main shopping centre open till late,
Our only minor negative comment would be the location. I got a feeling that this part of the town is not the best ( tho I could be wrong). The car park and complex was also quite open and felt a bit exposed. But for an over night or two night stay ( which we did) this motel is a good find and I would recommend it to others.

Very nice room in handy location on edge of town. 5 minute walk across bridge to Leagues Club for dinner. The price may seem a bit steep, but everywhere is in the Canberra area, so on Canberra standards, this is good value. I will go there again next time.

I stayed here for work and I found it to be very clean and in a good location for Queanbeyan. The amenities were excellent. Everything was in good repair. It was clean, neat, tidy and quiet. It is in a good location very close to the Queanbeyan RSL where I ate a nice dinner. The motel staff were friendly, the breakfast was excellent with a very comprehensive menu. The food was delicious and I highly recommend it as a good place to stay if you are looking for a clean, quiet and well maintained motel.

Room Tip: I stayed on the top floor and faced away from the river so it was very quiet. The river side faces t...

We have been staying here on and off for about 35 years. They are in middle of refurb and ensuring there are no inconveniences to quests. New rooms are very well set up and first class. As usual , staff were very friendly and helpful. Room rates are much cheaper than Canberra, and it is only about 15 minutes to centre of town. One big advantage of location is that you just walk across footbridge to Leagues Club for great meals. We were there for SPECIAL schnitzel night and it was packed. And we soon found out why. The meals were huge.
As always there are plenty of attractions in Canberra that should be visited and are so close.
Across the footbridge there is a large shopping centre where you can buy anything you may need.
This hotel is in a great position to break journey to the snowfields. Only about 2 and half hours to Jindabyne.
Must sees in Canberra, War Memorial (leave several hours if you can), Telstra Black Mountain Tower, New and Old Parliament House, Zoo, and we love the National Film Archives. Of course The National Art Gallery and High Court, and I could go on and on there is SO much to do in Canberra. don't just drive through, stop and enjoy.

Room Tip: We had a new refurb room on ground floor
