Small room and an even smaller toilet/shower put if your like us and just want somewhere to sleep it's perfect. But I have to say that the location is very far... More

Rooms are a bit small along with the shower/toilet closet. Be careful with clothes in the shower as they do get wet. We did have an issue with a card not working to open the room door. But for all intense and purposes is suffice for a single night although with the location it is a $30 cab ride so... More

Exactly what every other ibis budget is like. Decent rooms with small showers. The only issue I really found was its in the middle of nowhere basically. Attractions are a decent drive away. Still at the end of the day the beds are good and that's what matters most.

The room was a lot smaller than we expected but was perfect for one night. The bed was comfortable and the shower worked well. It was nice having coffee and tea available in the reception. The hotel was clean and orderly and well maintained. We will stay here again if we came to canberra.

Basic but clean room, simple continental breakfast, and the desk staff were very nice. I'd stay here again for a night or two quite happily. For the price I thought it was great. Easy and simple access to all of Canberra.

I have stayed in few different hotels in Canberra, paid double the price and was not as happy as a customer compared with my experience of this hotel. The hotel is easy accessible, 10 minutes drive from the centre, walking distance from... More

The hotel is under 10 minutes drive to the city centre, It is located just off the highway with easy access. Great rates,comfortable rooms and helpful staff. There is a 24 Hr Service station behind the hotel and a short 5 minute drive to Dickson Shops were you will find a variety of restaurants, woolworths and stores.
