Stayed on the 9th level and was great to have nice view. Reception on arrival was very flat and very unwelcoming. The room was very clean and presentable. How ever the trip was soured by the lack of car spaces and so many 'reserved' spaces not being used. I had a lot of trouble finding a park, i was charged... More

Stayed here for a week for a conference in April - nothing spectacular but it was okay. You pay for what you get - and this place is pretty reasonable. I had a kettle/fridge in my room.

Stayed in a studio apartment for a one-night stay. Room is spacious and clean, and no bad smells. Bed was comfy. I didn't have the chance to use the kitchette but it was functional with stove, big fridge, pot & pans etc. Continental Breakfast was "hotel pricey" and the restaurant was packed. But the coffee was decent and you could... More

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for 2 nights for work. Apartment was spacious and had a fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer which was convenient. Room service was quick, however food not the tastiest. Clean and comfortable, nothing fancy. Overall pleasant stay.

Stayed in a hotel room for my latest trip to Canberra and the 'soft renovations' (new carpet etc) are great. Super comfortable stay at a great price due to the renos, with a complimentary bottle of wine thrown in. Fantastic value for money end so close to the CBD. Having a comfy chair in the room would make it 11/10.

Central, spacious, quiet and clean apartment. Put both air cons on and room warmed up nicely. Dine in meal not pleasant. Breakfast not great quality. Staff and service ok. Overall it was ok for one night but would eat elsewhere.
