We stayed here in January 2013 by default as we were flooded out of our accommodation we were staying in over at Hawker for a softball competition. I have to say that the care and compassion shown by the owners of the Golden Age Motor Inn was exceptional. They found us a room which was amazing and assisted us with all of our personal needs to get us settled in. I wanted to express my sincere thanks for your outstanding service that you showed. I have no hesitation in recommending your motor inn to anyone who wants superior service and comfort. Thanks for coming to our rescue.

I was privileged to stay at the Golden Age Motor Inn, while working in Queanbeyan in 2013.

I found the service friendly, the rooms very comfortable and I felt safe staying there. It felt like it was a bit like home.

The restaurant was extremely handy - especially after a long day's work. I enjoyed the Lamb Shanks!

A great location. Short walk to the Leagues Club for Dinner. Close to the beautiful walks along the Queanbeyan River.

As a Sydney person - I was delighted to find a great place to stay near Canberra. I will be definitely staying at the Golden Age Motel Inn when I next want to visit the latest exhibitions at the National Art Gallery.

When my mother came to visit me over the weekend - and we enjoyed a spacious, comfortable room. Then we enjoyed the Continental Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday in the pleasant Breakfast room.

I strongly recommend the Golden Age Motor Inn.

I travel to Canberra frequently with a big group of people and from the minute we arrive the team at the Golden Age make me and the team feel VERY welcome. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The rooms have character which make it feel like a 'home away from home'. The food in the restaurant is superb and is served promptly with a smile which you appreciate after a hard day! But the best thing about it is the cooked breakfast... Cooked with love! I recommend this motel to anyone traveling to Canberra for work or pleasure.

I stayed here during the first week of August 2013, in winter, and winter isn't my favourite time of year to be travelling to Canberra.I must admit to not having any input into the choice of accommodation as this was chosen by my company.

The sign out the front indicates that the facilities have a four-star (4 star) rating, which I don't think is 100% accurate for the room that I stayed in, and advertised that they had Foxtel, which I couldn't find either on the television or in the in-room guide.

The bed was soft, but not saggy (there is a difference, and this was the soft-in-a-good-way kind), however for a traveler with a bad back this isn't always ideal. I didn't wake up the next day not being able to walk, so that is positive.

The room I was in (Rm 21) could do with a little updating - but from what I saw, I believe that this may be in the works (there was barricading on the verandah a little further down from my room, and it appeared that there was construction work going on), so this may be null and void very soon.

I was a little surprised to find a doona / duvet / quilt just heaped on the couch when I walked in, but the sheets had definitely been changed so that wasn't the end of the world. The floor was clean, the bed clean, the desk and coffee table clean, in fact the whole place was clean - that's a real must for me, and I was not disappointed. Thank you so much to the staff for that, because my OCD-tendencies won't let me sleep if I'm wondering how clean the room is.

The room was certainly quite large - there was a queen bed AND a couch, along with a desk (free wired internet available - pay a deposit if you need a cable and it is refunded when you return it) AND coffee table, so there is more than enough space for a single business traveler, couple, or even family with a small child or two.

I ordered room service, and this arrived in record time - which is quite impressive. The dinner was acceptable (I wasn't overly hungry), and the portion size was larger than expected.
Breakfast was included in the room rate that was booked, and the lady in the breakfast room (who had cooked and was recording room numbers) was friendly and approachable. A full buffet breakfast at the beginning of a long day is very welcome. The hot dishes were varied and still hot - the only suggestion I would make is perhaps a few more pairs of tongs to handle the bread to make toast. This wasn't an issue for me (I was the only person in the breakfast room on the day I was there), but I had to use the tongs placed for picking up sausages and bacon from the bain marie - if the breakfast room was busy, I could see this resulting in people using their hands (and again, this doesn't work with my OCD-tendencies).

The toiletries supplied were basic - soap, shower cap, shampoo/conditioner in a sachet - but I question the logic in leaving 3 x cotton buds bare (no wrapping, just sitting in with the shampoo sachet) and the 2 x home brand band-aids in among the toiletries - that had me a little confused, as I'm not sure if this was an attempt at providing "a little bit more" that missed the mark, or if these were left by the former occupant.

The place is situated on quite a busy road - there was no road noise in my room, but the walls are a little thin, and I could hear (loud enough to be confusing at first, but still low) the television from the room next door. It confused me at first as I thought a radio may have been on, but I was able to determine that it was the television next door.

The staff that I had dealings with were very happy, courteous and polite, so no trouble whatsoever in recommending this place.

I am the Manager of QBN RSL Memorial Bowling Club and I would sincerly like to thank Golden Age for their considerate hospitality. Recently one of our young members sadly passed away and Golden Age was THAT wonderful they took in this members family during their greif whilst they had to come here to finalise matters. Golden Age was kind enough to give accomodation and breakfast on their behalf of which all the members and the board of QBN RSL Memorial Bowling Club truly appreciated. The owners are very friendly and passionate for the people. This was a truly thoughtful thing to offer to one of our members during a terrible period and one less cost that they had to worry about during this time.I would like everyone to know what sort of people run this hotel as it truely shows the heart that comes out from Golden Age Motor Inn.
