We have stayed here a few times before and booked again for last weekend. The rooms are well appointed and spacious. The view on the lake side are wonderful. Would absolutely recommend this as a place to stay. The only negative thing was that we had arranged some groceries to be delivered through Woolworths online. They were delivered around 12... More

We found this hotel ticked all the boxes. Friendly staff. Spacious, clean, lovely room. Great view with tennis, squash, gym and pool (in the warmer months) available. Reasonable tariff and close to the centre of Canberra. We have 3 older children and they all LOVED staying here. Lots to do for everyone and a lovely room to come back to.... More

Chose this place because of close access to bike paths- excellent for riding either east or west around Lake Burley Griffen. Bike storage is secure and undercover! Our apartment (103) was large, clean & comfortable with 2 TV's and a great kitchen area. Easy walk into CBD area plus very close to restaurants in Newacton area. Would highly recommend Capital...

We stayed four nights in a two bedroom/two bathroom lakeside apartment. There were four of us, two couples, travelling together. This apartment was extremely comfortable, had all inclusions we needed and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The view from both bedrooms, dining room and lounge room was magnificent. We would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone seeking high... More

Staff friendly and helpful. Spacious apartment - we had two bedrooms with good living area. Clean and comfortable. Cooked in kitchen and had all we needed. Apartment seemed stuffy when been away and thermostat control didn't seem to change it, but had balcony so once opened door and used fan it was fine. We walked everywhere and it was close... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. The positives are that the apartment was a good size (we had a 2 bedroom city side) and it is in a good location, parliament, war memorial is only a five minute drive away. You can walk into the city centre within 10 minutes. There are lots of eating places close by. The only... More

So, good stuff first: 1. Everyone says it's great location. And it is. It is located in the trendiest part of the city with new cinemas, beautiful coffee shops, yoga classes, cafes and restaurants right outside the door. The lake and city are right there too. Location is unbeatable for the price (more on price to come...) 2. There is... More

Let's get the negatives out of the way first - the building is not new, the design and ambiance is 1980s. Some of the units' facilities may look 'tired' - In the bathrooms you may find patched and discoloured grout, for example. The free tea/coffee is not of the highest quality, nor are the bathroom supplies. The heating / cooling... More

My daughter and I recently stayed for 3 nights. Our stay was excellent. The room was clean, spacious and had balconies facing the river. The beds were really comfortable and the amenties excellent. The hotel is well situated to sights and city. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, would stay here again, highly recommended.
