We stayed in the Forrest Hotel and Apartments in February 2016 for a business meeting. It was a fair walk to the meeting venue, but the comfort of the Apartments made up for that. There were a number of us staying at the hotel, and colleagues had mixed reviews. I stayed in the BC Apartments, which we apparently roomier than... More

These apartments are well priced, however, they are dated and small. Car parking is across a small common, so if it's raining, you will get wet! Our room was on the first floor, so all our luggage had to be carted upstairs. The rooms are fitted with basic furniture and kitchen. All the usual cooking implements are provided. Unfortunately, the... More

My partner and I stayed here over the Australia Day Long Weekend and were happily surprised at the cleanliness and quality for the price we paid. We booked via Booking.com for a half price deal which was being held for that weekend. We paid $178 for two nights ($89 per night), which was much cheaper than every other hotel in... More

Good place to base yourself out of as it is an apartment with full kitchen. There was a courtyard with a BBQ but it is shared. It is close to parliament and some attractions but that's about it. Laundry facilities were good. Staff were lovely. Suited our needs

Great location when visiting Canberra. The staff were helpful and friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Parking space is tight and if you arrive late it could be a struggle to park close to your room, Restaurant meal was pretty good and reasonably priced. I would stay there again.

Would definitely be back. Have stayed in a number of motels and hotels during our trips to Canberra and this would have to rate in the top five. We will most definitely be letting our friends know about this place.

Would not stay here again. Was no where to park the car, was heaps of noise early in the morning , wouldn't recommend staying here and won't be coming back. Was the worst appartment I've ever stayed in.

This hotel experience reflects that unique "Canberra" touch - of quality, genuine friendliness and helpfulness toward visitors - something that seems to be diminishing from so many other cities. The Forrest and Canberra are a true breath of fresh air.

Great location. Easy stroll distance to Manuka for shops (Coles) and nice cafes and restaurants. Clean, quiet,.. really nice towels (tragic I know, but worked for me). Table in apartment was a bit small for 4 people but manageable. Lovely helpful staff.
