Looks ok on the outside but you get what you pay for. Small room, hard bed, dripping toilet and shower in a cupboard with the toilet beside. No bath mat so spare towel placed on the floor to stand on. As for breakfast starting at 7am the area was locked off and no one in site is I went to... More

We stopped here on our way down to Melbourne just overnight , for the price we had nothing to complain about good value for money really. Easy to find not far from the highway, staff are friendly, the room was a bit small and the bathroom was tiny but all very clean and we knew at this price it wasn't... More

Lodging is expensive in Canberra, so if you're looking for just a place to sleep and wash up, this will definitely work. The rooms are tiny (imagine a cabin on a cruise ship), with a modular bathroom (toilet and shower in a single enclosure). There are no amenities other than TV. But the bed was comfortable and the room was... More

We stayed here overnight on the way from Sydney to the snow to break up the journey. We chose this place because it was a decent price and on our route. The room was tiny and smelt like a dirty toilet, the bathroom was worse and i would liken it to the size of a plane toilet. There was only... More

Was heading to Melbourne and we stayed in Canberra over night, was a great little room, perfect for a few nights rest. About the only issue was seeing as it was winter the A/C was playing up a bit and would randomly switch to cold.

Stayed there 2 nights in mid-June. Pleasantly surprised that the room was maintained in good condition, quite clean and nothing broken or faulty. Bed was comfortable enough. I only wished the bathroom was slightly larger and had some accessories like hooks etc.
