The staff were friendly, and helpful. Rooms were of a good size, amenities were good. Canberra was cold, but the heating in the room easily coped, and our room stayed nice and cosy. Breakfast was middle of the road, and dinner menu was basic. Good location,very close to Parliament Buildings and surrounding attractions.

This was our second stay in a one bedroom apartment. The facilities inside the room are excellent. Far better quality than the outside appearance would lead you to expect. Room is very clean with great extras - the coffee machine is a real bonus - and everything works! The price per room is excellent as is the location. Reception is... More

With 12 of us having a special Family trip to Canberra, this beautifully placed Hotel and Apartments was ideal for us to have 3 renovated 2 bedroom apartments for 4 nights Beautifully appointed in the modern renovated apartments and a delightful garden area for the kids to play and throw a ball. Close to Manuka and all the sights of... More

We stayed in an executive 2br apartment. On the smaller side than what was expected as we were told it was the bigger unit. Renovated but still dated, toilet squeezed in with washer & dryer. Bit deceiving as the front of the motel looks quite nice as do the photos online. Would be okay in summer as had a nice... More

The rooms here are clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly. We had a room change as the room we originally were we could here too much noise and the staff were accommodating and moved us without a fuss. Great location for Canberra.

A very adequate room for the price. But the heater rattled and so we got an upgrade which meant we got more space than we needed. Breakfast buffet quite good and variable. Close to the Italian Club. Quiet area.

Recently stayed in a refurbished 2 bed apartment that was clean , although dated. New pillows would be a great addition as would a clothes airer for items not suitable for the dryer. The included WIFI of 500MB was ok but if staying for several days the limit didnt increase with length of stay , which was a disadvantage. The... More

WE enjoyed our stay, and especially the buffet breakfast. You need to walk up stairs to your apartment and car-park is away from the rooms, but we didn't mind this as we were appreciative of any exercise on our driving holiday! The State of Origin was on and because Qld won (it was the final game) we were very happy!!!... More

On a last minute getaway with friends we decided to visit Canberra. Very little choices on places to stay and we ended up at the Forrest Hotel in a 2 bedroom apartment. Very underwhelmed. From the pictures on booking.com we were excepting a clean fresh apartment, not an rundown building and a pretty grubby room. There was teenagers screaming and... More

While the room was basic, I did choose it to suit my budget at the time. However, the bed was comfortable and the room and bathroom were clean. I appreciated the free wifi allowance and free newspapers. The staff were so amazing, going above and beyond what would be expected, and certainly more helpful than the staff I have encountered...
