The tale of how Belconnen Way was born…


In 1972, the surroundings of the Russell family’s property were nothing more than a few scattered gumtrees without any street lights or homes nearby.


Despite this, the local GP Bill Russell and his wife Yula had a vision to create a home away from home for travellers, and they set about building a small family-run hotel. Their dream was to offer guests a comfortable, easy-going environment with regular guests, caring staff, and cozy rooms.


The Russell family’s vision has been thriving for over 50 years, evolving alongside the suburb, guests, and trends. Today, we strive to be the leading provider of quality mid-level accommodation with an unmatched reputation for delivering exceptional customer service.


Our Board of Managers is dedicated to upholding the family legacy, and our management approach focuses on finding solutions rather than faults. Our staff understands the value of helping others, knowing that it also benefits themselves.


We take pride in providing comfort with every bed, creating a welcoming atmosphere where guests feel at home from the moment they walk through our doors.
