Great location! Just what we were looking for - large comfortable apartment, great layout with everything we needed, a short walk to shops and restaurants and helpful staff. Outside wall of apartment was all windows/sliding doors allowing beautiful views. Will definitely stay again!

The location was good, near restaurants and handy little shop/cafe. We were on the 8th floor and the view was wonderful. The reception staff were always helpful but the rooms were not up to the standard for the price charged. The bathrooms in particular badly needed upgrading. The lounge and dining areas were spacious and the balcony would be good... More

Great position and if you can get a lake view room, ours had views to the Parliament and over the lake. Our 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom apartment was great value, large lounge and full kitchen as well as free parking. We have now stayed here three times in the last few months, mostly bringing overseas visitors to Canberra for... More

Absolutely amazing! Fantastic value for money. Lovely modern apartment with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Unbeatable location and view over the lake to parliament house. Wonderful, helpful and friendly staff (especially Dylan and Joe!) thanks for a great stay.

Excellent location. One apartment was very good with beautiful views of Lake Burley Griffin, the other was basic and had a terrible smell. Customer service staff excellent. Overall if met our needs and I would recommend the hotel.

Last week (6-9 May 2015) we had the pleasure of staying at the Breakfree Capital Tower in Canberra. As we were going for three nights, and I had a conference to attend at the QT Hotel next door, we decided a two-bedroom apartment would be better than a hotel room - more space, no need to dress for breakfast, and...

I stay at Capital Tower for 1-2 weeks per month for work. The two and three bedroom apartments are far and away the best value accommodation in Canberra given the amenities (full kitchen, laundry, lounge, balcony) and location (on the lake, across from a grocery store and bottle shop, next to the New Acton restaurants and close to the city)....

High rise, beautiful view and spacious. We had a 3br on the 19th floor. Bathrooms quite mouldy, peeling paint in some areas. Bedrooms have no heating so bring your woolies! Reception staff welcoming. Location excellent and convenient to cafes, tourist attractions and shops.

Room and views (Lakeside, 16th floor) were exceptional. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms were well maintained, roomy and clean. Great underground parking and security. Small grocery store 50 metres away.Short walk over footbridge to lake shore and park. Fifteen minute walk to Canberra city centre.
