When parliament was sitting, and everything else was booked out, Lyneham Motor Inn came to our rescue. We checked in at 11:99 am (see photos), and were greeted by immaculate attention to detail... from the flawlessly repaired basin cracks (see photos) to the vinyl-cushioned leaning area. There was also a phone in the bathroom, in easy reach of the toilet...

You should get what you paid for and this trip away we are just staying in budget accomodation, so our expectations are not high. This motel had absolutely nothing going for it. From the lady who took our money at the front desk, who could not crack a smile or make one single comment to make me feel welcome to...

The WORST place on gods earth. Omg!!! The room was mouldy, full of pests, the shower curtain was black with mould, the bath was filthy, cobwebs everywhere, rusty fridge that I was afraid to open. Avoid at all cost. Stay at your own peril this so called hotel / council bin hasn't been updated or cleaned since the 1970's. The...

When I visit Canberra I try not to book over priced accommodation. This place is just Perfect located and reasonable priced clean and very quiet. It is closed to parks, shops and the trendy Restaurants.

I booked this accommodation because all others in my price range were already booked. This is a very old and dated motel. It does have parking and WiFi, that doesn't work. It also didn't have hand towels, shampoo or a toaster. Other than this it has all the basics. The room was quite, until heavy machinery started working right outside...

We lobbed into Canberra during peak season with Parliament sitting and Floriade festival in full swing so accommodation prices were through the roof and it was hard to find a room. Luckily the visitors centre found a room at the Lyneham Motor Inn for us which proved to be a very tranquil and relaxing place to spend a few days....

Last minute trip down to Canberra for the weekend and we booked this place online. The room was well equipped, clean, comfortable but not luxurious. The receptionist was happy and helpful. Location was great for us, we walked to Canberra Stadium and avoided the massive traffic queues. I'll definitely stay here next time.

Room is mould infested, television channels don't work because no reception, they offer wifi but it doesn't work at all, no toiletries on offer except a bar of soap that has been used by previous guests and just overall unhygienic.

I stayed here on Saturday night so I could go to GIO stadium to see Cronulla beat Canberra. I booked it due to proximity to the stadium. Pros: It was close to GIO stadium Easy to get to when coming from Sydney Cons: This motel is very old, and hasn't been updated in years. The heating has been pulled out...

Large motel close to the centre of Canberra. Motor inn style place. Always very busy. Clean comfortable and quiet rooms. Beds are new and comfortable. Free Wifi is available. Close to Canberra city, Belconnen and Gungahlin. Easy to get to when coming in from Sydney or Melbourne. Ample parking close to rooms. Excellent value for money.
