Accommodation was far better than expected for this price. Clean roomy and in perfect and easy to find location. Hassle free check in and check out. Great stay. Fantastic for the price. Have recommended to all my family. Spotlessly clean. Courteous staff. Will definitely stay here again when in Canberra.

I stayed here a couple of nights while visiting Canberra. I chose to stay here because I couldn't find vacancy anywhere else. I didn't like the place very much. The location is very convenient, not too far from the city center, but the quality of my room was quite poor. The room was chilly, the heater worked for five minutes,... More

Advertised with air con but it didn't work, three bar heater with two bars working, radio didn't work, meant to be twin doubles but got king and single. Single did not have electric blanket. No cutlery, no plates, no toaster. Shower dripped... More

Motel is in a good location and the room was spacious, clean and had a heater. It does need a little maintenance however because paint was peeling off the bathroom walls. We were able to park our car under cover outside the room. We were supplied with a toaster and plates so we could make our own breakfast. There is... More

Bathroom walls are flacking paint. Telephone doesn't work and is above toilet. Bed was so hard I couldn't sleep in it. Breakfast was apparently included in the price but the restaurant was never open to get breakfast. Service desk didn't open until 2 which was very inconvenient to ask questions like why is the restaurant closed!. Overall very disappointed with... More

A good old style motel right in the Capital. Was quite impressed with the place. Room was very clean and well maintained and equipped. You can park under cover right at the door of your room which is great when you have luggage. There is sports ovals behind the motel and across the road if you feel energetic, we kicked... More

This motel ticked all our boxes. Clean and tidy. Location is 10 out of 10 close to the city and restaurants and on the direct bus route to Belconnen. Few minutes walk to the restaurant mecca. Room is well equipped. Bed is comfortable. For the central location the room is very quiet and there is a green belt adjacent. Easy... More

OK, stayed here 2 nights as part of a sporting club trip to Canberra. Most other reviews talk about mould on the ceilings, stained carpets, wonky and noisy fridges etc. All very true. On the plus side, water pressure is good in the shower, linen was clean and rooms were serviced each day. Location is also central and convenient. The... More
