Each time when we are in Canberra we stay at the Blue and white Lodge. It is a friendly family run place with very friendly service. Although this establishment serves a delicious breakfast, this place does not have any lunch or dinner meals. For that one has to go to Dickson, a suburb which is just next door. The accommodation...

Best value in canberra. Walking distance to dickson shops and restaurants. Wont find a better value in canberra with ensuite. They offer breakfast as well. Without breakfast is $88 night. But there is cheaper rooms without ensuite.

This motel is a very nice budget motel. It is clean, inviting and just what we wanted. Somewhere to lay our heads at night. The service was excellent. The only disappointing part was that we had a room that could have been opened into another room if required and when that was booked with customers it was very annoying as... More

This is a very basic place. It's two separate buildings with en suite rooms. Everything you need is there but it's not fancy. It was noisy when people moved in next door. It's convenient to lots of restaurants and bakeries. The city bus is very close. Breakfast was OK, not great.

There were not many places of this ilk in Canberra so we booked it purely on reviews in Trip Advisor. It was situated on the outskirts of the CBD on a slip road to the the main Highway 23 but very close to shops and restaurants. Our arrival and registrations went well and we were very satisfied by our reception.... More

Enjoyed my stay at Blue & White Lodge. It was a pleasure to book as all e-mail queries were answered quickly and accurately. I had a street-facing room with a double bed, on-suite bathroom, small fridge, flat-panel TV, and plenty of cupboard space. The bedroom was spacious, bright and sunny. The bathroom (appreciated the fresh towels daily) was clean, with... More

Not many highly rated places in Canberra so stayed here based on reviews although we found it quite expensive. Rooms were clean although noisy from traffic and from room next door. Bed was also by the window where a draught was felt. Make sure you check you get an ensuite as there are some rooms with shared bathrooms.

Stayed in the Canberran building of the Blue & White Lodge. The building itself is quite old as were the furnishings in the room however all was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The ensuite must have been renovated at some point as it wasn't as old as the rest of the room and had a good size shower. Hosts were lovely... More

located close to restaurants. friendly staff and very helpful. They really look after you. The only issue we had were the people in the next room, very noisy and could hear them walking up and down the stairs. Rooms were spacious enough for 4 people and sportless.

As a B&B it is all you need unless you plan to sit in your room all day. Delightful staff, clean and very close to a plethora of eateries. Look, let's be fair, it is on the small side, a little old fashioned but it's all there and excellent value for being so close to Canberra central.
