Stayed only one night got upgraded to a new exec room which was very nice. Had everything I needed free wifi and a comfy bed. Nice bathroom area. Breakfast was included and was fine. Was a 15 min easy walk into city. Staff were polite and helpful. Area around hotel a little messy but overall was good value.

We stayed at this hotel whilst on our Canberra trip. We booked a King room for two people which was nicely renovated. The bed was absolutely amazing it was huge and very comfortable. The layout and size of the room was totally inappropriate for two people. There is a table with ONE chair!? so when you order in-room dining, one... More

My husband and I booked a "spacious king bed room" and it was far from acceptable. As we entered the room it was dimly lit by a single dull light, which looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. And the bed side lamps were just for show as neither were plugged in. On inspecting the bathroom the shower needed... More

We appreciate friendliness and professionalism of the hotel staff: check-in and check-out were fast and efficient, complimentary breakfast was good enough, we liked the gym and the pool as well. The only fact that could spoil overall impression is that the hotel needs immediate renovation: the rooms, corridors, lobby, public areas looked out-of-date and old.

Stayed several times at this place before moving to Canberra. The regular rooms are basic and a bit dated but clean and comfortable. Had an unexpected upgrade to presidential suite which was fantastic. The breakfast is quite good too. Good location with easy access to anywhere in Canberra. I find this is a very good place to stay in Canberra... More

Beds were good, we slept well. Breakfasts were included in price and were great with the usual basic... More

Great 2 bed unit - plenty of room and all you need for self-catering. Friendly and accommodating staff. Very comfortable bed and excellent black-out blinds. Attractive rates inclusive of buffet breakfast (good but nothing to write home about) and secure underground parking. Apartment serviced which I had not expected but did appreciate. Brilliant location. Coming from Sydney very easy to... More

Not only did i get a cheery greeting from the front desk staff but they upgraded my room which was completely unexpected. I stayed in one of their one bedroom apartments and it was spectacular. Highly spacious with a cute balcony, a large tv, comfy king size bed and a highly functional kitchen. The bathroom has a laundry tucked away... More
