What a nightmare! This motel is infested with bed bugs, the rooms are deffinetly not worth what you pay for, rooms are infested with bed bugs, not to mention it looks nothing as advertised on the internet, motel is rundown all the furniture is old and outdated.

Stayed with two kids. Good pool and facilities. Quiet clean freshly painted rooms. Resort seems a bit old but as it is well maintained then only an observation. A/C in room old and noisy wall unit but otherwise well equipped room. We stayed on the weekend so the restaurant was not open. However only a short drive to Manuka with... More

We recently had a 4 night long weekend here. The rooms were clean, beds were made every day, fresh towels, pleasant staff and close to the city centre. One minor thing, we unfortunately had noisy neighbours so beware the walls are pretty thin! I would stay here again though.

We have stayed here numerous times, from one to fives nights in a row. Always clean and tidy, we feel quite at home here. We know the area well now and it's situated close to all the shops we like to visit. Its quiet location is also a plus. We always enjoy our stay at the Sundown..

Stayed here the night of the 13th December for a nearby meeting. The motel is quite unique in the sense that the rooms are units reminiscent of a retirement village. You have parking directly in front of your unit. The room itself is very modern, clean and comfortable with carpeting and large tiles. There is limited kitchen facilities including a... More

My partner and I stayed here last weekend for one night whilst visiting the ACT for a soccer match. The layout of the motel resort is well thought out, with each room being a separate single-storey unit, all apart from each other for maximum privacy (as opposed to your usual joint motel where rooms are only separated with a paper-thin...

This motel feels like a reject retirement village. The design of the unit I stayed in was terrible. The bathroom was accessed through the main bedroom which would be annoying for more than a couple staying. The very small bathroom was completely internal to the unit and there was only a wall (not ceiling) mounted extraction fan which simply couldn't... More

very relaxing stay in a nice location with everything i needed in the room for a short stay. the location is pretty close to the cbd and does not take long to get to the other side of canberra as the in town road network is very easy to navigate.

Pros: clean, spacious unit with a good bathroom and kitchen. Reasonably priced. Cons: the air conditioner was not effective in either heating or cooling the room. Wifi very slow to load. Despite being on the very edge of town, the traffic noise was quite disturbing: even an aircraft at around 4 am! Dated decor does not concern me, but the... More
