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

Return visit and always very happy with value for money. Had a quiet corner room with Queen bed, only small window with no outlook. Very clean. It really suited us as at night room very dark and no outside lights to see coming in. Window opened and air con worked. Bonus was a spa bath. Short walk to bars and restaurants. Recommend Turkish Turquoise restaurant, fabulous food and service.

WOW! As first time guests at this establishment, we were most impressed. Housekeeping, presentation and inclusions were superb. Big capital city hotels could learn valuable lessons from this motel. Bed was very comfy, night was quiet and location is ideal to wander along the river bank. Plenty of beverage supplies in the unit; and a lovely new clean kettle. We judge a room for cleanliness by the smell of the room. Highly scented means cleaning is not en par, hence fragrance to cover offensive odour. This room was not masked by fragrance and smelt and looked clean. We certainly do recommend this establishment to all guests.

Room was exactly as advertised. Basic but Very clean and tidy. Advantages room was pet friendly. Loved the clean fresh fragrance in the room. There were no staff onsite but staff answered phone to assist with queries. I’d happily stay there again is very close to shops and restaurants and is a fair price .

Great room size, would appreciate if the air conditioning control could be lowered on the wall as it is too high, was not able to reach, especially as it over the bench area, had to use an implement to press the controls. Appreciated the housekeeping person offering to change our towels and provide more milk for our 2nd night. Housekeeping lady very polite. Unfortunately the shower leaks and the bathroom floor gets quite wet, however is an excellent size shower. Love having crockery, cutlery and wine glasses. Great location close to shops and eating places. Also quiet compared to the motels on the main road. Will definitely stay again
