The suite we had was really in need of, if not a total renovation, attention to the many light fittings that were either broken or loose, mildew in the bathroom and carpet stains and general wear and tear. Having said that the location and free parking are a bonus.

The reason I like coming back is the convenient situation of Capital Towers. It is right on the lake, and great for early morning walks. It is also very convenient for access to the Civic precinct - a 10 - 15 minute walk - and close to the University. It is right in the trendy New Acton precinct, with an... More

Previous reviewer described it as 'shabby' - that is spot on! Sorry to start with negatives ... The place needs a makeover. So many things inside did not work: the balcony door wouldn't close all the way and it couldn't be locked, the shower handle was broken, the lamp in the bedroom was broken, I found someone's sport socks in...

We really enjoyed our stay here. There is a full kitchen you can use in case you have got fed up with eating out all the time on holiday. The only thing missing was salt and pepper! There are two bedrooms, so room for a small family or two couples. The beds are comfortable, and there is enough storage space... More

The front reception staff were nice, however the room (302) was ordinary at best. On entry, the apartment smelt stale and looked dated. The fittings were worn and in need of some TLC. For example, the material on the curtains was that worn that you could still see the light come through even when they were fully drawn. The air... More

I booked more than a dozen apartments for the Tennis Seniors Assoc SA for the last 2 weeks, 1, 2 & 3 bedrooms while we competed in the Aust Seniors Champs.

The staff were great and the apartment was lovely......we had a great time and would recommend anyone to visit Canberra......lovely city. We stayed for 3 days, had lunch in Parliament House and a special ceremony for the lost soldiers in the War Memorial......furniture was modern, clean and comfortable.....I would definitely book here again.

We have stayed here twice but this time had a Lakeview. The captivating view was available from each of the three bedrooms and the dining/ lounge areas. It really is one of the best views in Canberra and can also be enjoyed from the large balcony. The main bedroom is large with a huge wardrobe and bathroom, although the shower... More

My friend and I spent three days here after being suggested by the Visitors Centre. The apartment was spacious and clean although it is getting tired in some areas like the bathroom. The shower is above the bath and my friend who is not very mobile found it difficult to climb in. However, it was attractively furnished and was a... More

Stayed for 5 days in a 3 bedroom apartment on 19th floor overlooking the lake - magnificent view and great for a family. Nice sized rooms with good balcony area. Rooms kept spotlessly clean by room service but the curtains looked tired (time to replace?). A minor maintenance issue was fixed immediately when reported. All staff very courteous and obliging,...
