Hotel was just as expected. Ibis standards...clean and quiet. For the price it was all right. Will be visiting Ibis Budget again. Perfect for a short get away, especially if you only need a place to sleep over as you busy with work or sightseeing.

The room was tiny and the bathroom was disgusting and could hardly fit one person. The service was of poor quality and the workers were disinterested and sometimes outright rude. Were supposed to stay two nights but spent the extra bit on a different hotel for the second night.

Stayed here for a single night after booking at late notice. The property was well positioned as your drive into Canberra on Federal Highway. Checkin was very quick, no security payment needed and no forms. Checkout was equally as quick. Room was quite small, had a mini fridge and a very small TV. The room offered a good nights sleep...

The staff were very friendly and welcoming... Almost like a family run business, where the staff greeted guests warmly. Great location and also nice and quiet The mini fridge was a good size and stored enough food to allow for my stay to be comfortable. I booked one of the quiet rooms & could not hear any of the trucks... More

From the walk in the door right through till we left 2 days later, it was GREAT! We were greeted by the biggest smile (I think she was the Manager), a warm and friendly smile, that made us immediately feel like we were walking in to a friends home. This carried on right through our stay. The room and hotel... More

Good position and good price but very small rooms. However good for a short time and if you need to stay close to the city. Aircon very noisy, Ibis standard is not the highest quality so you know what you get

In a nice and quiet setting we were welcomed by very friendly staff. The rooms were of an older style, but very efficient, fresh and clean. The bed is of very high quality. Breakfast was good, at a very reasonable price.

Front of house staff were pleasant and welcoming. Unfortunately the Summernats was on in Canberra after three days of my stay. The cleanliness of the rooms deterioriated rapidly even after a request for my room to be cleaned a little more! Stay away from this Motel if the Summernats is on in Canberra (7th -10th January this year)

Impolite management and staff. Porta cot not provided and not informed to us even though booking was made 20 days ahead. Had to buy a new one. Made temporary arrangements (couple of pillows on floor) for baby safety and access revoked, again no communication before doing this. Worst accommodation I have been to!I Know budget means budget, but in this... More
