My friend and I had travelled from Coffs harbour to take a break for the night which upon I was greeted with a very snotty nosed receptionist who treated me with complete disrespect. I had gotten a call asking for payment through my card I had booked with, to which I had declined because I was using cash, he said... More

We stayed for six nights to enjoy Canberra so the location was a good choice. Reception was pleasant enough but the room was badly planned. Twin beds pushed together are unnecessary and take up most of the room. The aircon in the corner blew hot air into one spot only and left the rest cold. The shower was so tight... More

Hotel in good location with good room size. However, the bathroom was quite small and the shower floor was filthy. The tiles and grout on the walls in the shower were clean but something is seriously wrong with the cleaning of the shower floor.

This was a great find and we will definitely stay here again. The location was perfect for our purposes and the office staff were very helpful for directions etc. We could walk to restaurants, pictures and cafes - Very happy :-)

The apartments at Forrest offer very affordable and comfortable accommodation. Apartments have all necessary basic amenities including washing machine/dryer. The apartment was warm, quiet with plentiful hot water. While the bed was a little small, and the shower outlet low, my husband being unusually tall found it a little difficult, however, it was quite comfortable and definitely well worth the... More

The motel was in a great location, close to all attractions and a short walk to the shops and restaurants at Manuka.The room was clean and tidy with a comfy bed fitted with an electric blanket that was great for the cold night.The breakfast at the motel was great.

At first glance, the room looked great - double bed, lounging area, kitchenette and bathroom. Unfortunately, the bathroom was a 'wedge' and using the toilet was uncomfortable. There was no space for toiletries at the wash basin, and very little hanging space and no drawers in the 'bedroom' area. I was glad that we only stayed for two nights. There... More
