We stayed for a couple of nights while we explored Canberra. , Comfortable bed, room very clean with tea-making facilities which were nice when we got back tired after a day's sight-seeing. Also very handy for a whole row of restaurants and cafes' for breakfast and an evening meal. Staff very helpful as were the bus drivers in Canberra -... More

Stayed there for couple of nights during the Cricket World Cup. It's close to the Canberra Cricket stadium and that made it easier for me. Hotel provides you an exit through its back gate which makes its easier to get to the nearest restaurants and the shopping centre.It's a clean hotel but no character. My aim was to find a... More

Twin share room, neat and tidy with well equipped kitchen facilities including toaster and well stocked bathroom. Close to Kingston shopping centre, Manuka Oval and shops, restaurants and Eastlake Football Social Club. Price a little dearer than some other accommodation but comfortable beds and quiet location. Would consider staying again..

We stayed one night on our way to Sydney - had to search a while in Canberra to find any available rooms - maybe due to an election ongoing. The rooms were good and the location was ok, near shops, pubs and restaurants. The price we paid was the highest of all places we stayed between Sydney and Melbourne. Staff... More

Rooms were modern and clean. Area was quite but very close to shops and restaurants. Was concerned that I would have trouble sleeping as the bed was in a room that opened directly onto the corridor but curtains effectively cut out all outside light.

In a fabulous position with direct access to the Kingston shops and cafés. It looks very ordinary from the outside but the rooms were fabulous with all amenities required for a comfortable stay. My room had a very comfortable queen bed and single bed and included a microwave and free wifi. Ample size for 1 and cosy for 2 people.... More

We love our location and have tried to make our rooms as comfortable and functional as possible (including a few extras like microwave and free wifi) on top of a full room refurbishment. So glad you were happy with your stay and hope to see you again soon. Graham (Owner) More

I was only staying one night which had been organised by a friend. The outside of the motel looked tired but was pleasantly surprised in the room. The room was lovely and clean. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. I would highly recommend this motel.

Thanks Felicity. You get it!! Nobody sleeps on the outside of a motel! We have maintained the original exterior or our 1960s built motel and spent a lot of money renovating and improving the rooms...where our guests spend their time. You can spent a lot of time and effort to dress up an older building but it is the rooms... More

I booked here after a last minute wedding invite and was just looking for somewhere cheap. Aside from being very affordable, the motel complex is clean and tidy. The room was very clean, with a comfortable large bed and good amenities. We were treated with a friendly good morning by the staff and the room was serviced daily. Great value... More

I did not book my room, it was for work. The room was tiny, but it was enough for what was needed. The room was cosy and clean. On check in the lady advised that she had turned on the air conditioner for me, which was fantastic as it had been a hot day. The room had everything needed, TV,... More

Hi Nicole and thanks for the great review. We have tried to cover most things in our rooms to make guests feel at home. We have a special rate for some smaller rooms for one person (Business Single rate) which suits some budgets and this is what was booked for you. As you state is ok for a single person... More
