Should you find yourself needing accommodation in the southern Canberra satellite township of Tuggeranong, about 20km south of the city, the choices are few. A friend’s wedding recently required us to overnight there, so we stayed at the Country Comfort Greenway.
In style, the motel is best described as “modern corporate”, with 100 rooms (all non-smoking) spread over a rambling two storey complex, also a restaurant, sauna, swimming pool, wireless internet, etc. All we needed was a comfortable room! If you are staying as a tourist, try for a room looking toward the river and hills.
Our room was at ground level, near the carpark and set up for disabled occupants. The significance of that was that the shower had no screen, just a half curtain to separate it from the toilet – plus disabled persons fittings. But water from the shower went everywhere! In one of those curious things, Pauline found that the cord on the hairdryer was too short to allow the dryer to be used in front of the mirror. Aside from those little quibbles, and the counter staff not asking if we wanted breakfast next day (we didn’t, but you do need to advise the previous evening), our stay was quite comfortable if somewhat “corporate”.

Unique Quality: You will find this motel in Rowland Rees Crescent, Greenway, tucked away behind the Tuggeranong Vikings Bowling Club and the offices of the Department of Social Security. That doesn’t sound very impressive, but the club is not noisy and as the motel overlooks the parkland along the Murrumbidgee River with uninterrupted views across to the Brindabella Range, the setting would be hard to beat. What’s more, the Tuggeranong Town Centre is only a five minute walk away.
