The Hotel is a lovely old Hotel with a lot of history. Unfortunately the Hotel has dismantled the dining room and the buffet breakfast is very disappointing. I wont stay there in the winter time as I don't want to go and find breakfast out somewhere before I start work.

The beds were large and comfortable, but the pillows, were all too soft. tossed all night. It was a long walk to our room, up a small set of stairs, no balconies. Couldn't tell what the weather was like unless you walked back all the way outside. A fair drive to get a decent coffee. There was a coffee machine... More

We were thrilled to be upgraded on our arrival. Our room was lovely - very clean and the bed was fantastic! Very quiet, easy to get to and close to all tourist attractions. Staff were very helpful and obliging

The hotel had undergone renovations since I was last there. The large, comfortable bed was really good and the bathroom, although not large, was good. The shabby carpet on the stairwells was a let-down and should be updated as a priority. It detracts from any the positive updates. It would be good if meals, particularly breakfast, could be available for... More

Good quiet location. The hotel is somewhat limited in its modernisation by its age. The superior room was a good size but diminished by the old noisy airconditioner, painted shut windows and no fan extractor in the bathroom

Room was good. Not quite spotlessly clean, but still quite acceptable. Bed was very comfortable, and exactly what I needed. (A place to place my head). Location is fantastic, close to Kingston eateries. Service from the 24hr front desk was exemplary. Quiet, Great location. Free parking is a plus.

We stayed for a long weekend in November. Loved the old fashioned feel of the hotel. The staff were friendly & helpful, the room was large, clean & comfortable. Parking is limited during the week, but after about 5pm on a Friday, a lot more spots become available. Great location in a quiet suburb, walking distance to many of Canberra's... More
