Queanbeyan Riverfront Accommodation

Embrace the Queanbeyan riverfront & Capital Country landscape.

River Motel lets you get more value for your budget, providing affordable accommodation, across the river from Queanbeyan’s town centre.
Previously known as the convenient, comfortable and reasonably-priced Leagues Motel, our central, riverside location allows you to enjoy peaceful strolls along the riverfront to anywhere in Queanbeyan. Lined with parklands, cafes and activities, Queanbeyan River is accompanied by running & bike tracks; all at your front door, for a sunset stroll or morning jog.

River Motel is your ideally-located accommodation option for when you visit Canberra and its surrounding regions; only a 500m walk across the river to Queanbeyan Plaza. Enjoy staying in affordable accommodation, and our convenient location – positioned on Queanbeyan River walking & running tracks, 500m from Queanbeyan Golf Club, and across the river from Queanbeyan restaurants, cafes, local shops and more!

Our new suites &  convenient location let you stay just  a couple minutes from Queanbeyan Hospital & Canberra Hospital, 10 minutes from Canberra Airport and 20 minutes from all the things to do, attractions, and things to see in Canberra CBD. River Motel's friendly and welcoming atmosphere lets you enjoy your weekend getaway, corporate travel and vacation in heart of Capital Country.

Great stay here last minute, locked the key in the bedroom on a Friday around 7pm and got prompt help, had the key back in no time! Room was clean, with everything we needed. Good value!

We had a flying visit to Canberra and so glad we found River Motel. It was easy, no fuss booking and departing and reception was great, helpful and cheerful. The room was very clean and tidy, a great quiet location near the river and plenty of grassed area across the road for our pup to explore and do "his business" 🙂. All in all a fabulous little place and dog friendly. Thanks, will definitely stay again if needed. Cheers Russ, Ella and Louie 👍

The staff are always friendly and helpful. Our room was spotlessly clean, they have a microwave for reheating food which is handy. They supply cutlery, bowl, plate and cups. Very good shower pressure. Parking outside the room which we love. Slept well due to the area being quiet. The shops are very close. It is a beautiful walk along the river which is right across the road. 5 stars from us. Thank you to the team at River Motel Queanbeyan!

Perfect overnight stay! it's so quite! travelling with two dogs, the position of the motel, lovely walks along the river, an added plus was being dog friendly! The rooms were immaculate (clean tidy) no noise, you wouldn't know there had been dogs in the room. First time I've travelled from Wollongong for a dog competition, we will definitely be back! Thanks for a great stay River Motel, see you next time
