This hotel is very clean, warm and easy to find. A great little hotel for a stop over and have a rest when you are traveling long distance. The staff were very helpful. Would stay there again. The price of the room was great.

My husband and I only stayed there for one night. It was a good value for the price we paid. We had a good night's sleep, though the mattress was a bit hard. There is not much to do in the motel's area, but the drive to the city is only about 5-10 minutes. If we travel to Canberra again,... More

I came to stay at the Ibis as I was on a work trip, and it is closest to Epic park where I worked all weekend. Great value for the price. Clean, private facilities and a fridge and T.v in the room. If you were holidaying I would pay more and go for a bit more luxury. If you are... More

Stayed four nights recently. All we wanted was a comfortable bed and steaming hot shower after a hard day at the Canberra Show exhibiting livestock. The photo's on the internet were exact, the room was a 14 sq room to accommodate 3 adults. The room was small with the shower and toilet was tucked in the corner. Air con worked... More

Stayed here overnight for stopover to break up trip from sydney to Jindabyne a few weeks ago . Whilst it was nothing fantastic I thought it was well worth it price wise as it had everything you needed for the night bed was comfy etc . The toilet shower whilst compact was functional . The staff were friendly and efficient

The little rooms were clean & comfortable. We were lucky enough to stay over the Valentines weekend. The staff were lovely & warm. They decorated the breakfast area & gave us treats such as muffins & chocolates. We lost our key & without a fuss (or extra charge) were given a new one. A very nice experience.
