I have stayed at The Brassey many times for business and it probably remains one of my picks to stay when visiting Canberra. Once again I had a good experience staying here. The rooms are comfortable and clean - and quiet. The separate bathroom is a good size. The hot water does take a little while to come through but... More

I've stayed at the Brassey many times over the past 7 or 8 years and it remains my favourite Canberra hotel. Clean, comfortable rooms (pay the extra for a larger room), a pleasant bar and good breakfasts. The restaurant is just ok (and closed on Sundays) but Manuka is an easy walk and has some really great restaurants. I've stayed... More

The history of this hotel has been used well to create a charming hotel in a sometimes cold and modernistic Canberra. Updates have ensured a good standard of fitout and maintenance. My room was spacious and included a double (didn't seem overly large) and single bed. Separate bathroom was also roomy but the electric bar heater was definitely needed in... More

Tucked away in a suburban street in Barton, the Brassey is a 15-minute walk from Parliament House. The hotel is tidy and unfussy but the 1990s panelled wood with brass fittings is looking a little tired. The bathroom has Victorian style tiles and toilet and was let down by mouldy grout in the shower. A few new pictures around the... More

The hotel reminded me of an English country estate. It had old fashioned styling and was very comfortable. The staff were friendly and efficient. If you want modern facilities then this place will disappoint you as most of the bedroom and bathroom appeared old and tired. However, if you like character, then this hotel is perfect. The rooms are overpriced... More

Stayed her two nights on recent business trip. Nice and close to parliamentary Triangle and also Kingston/Manuka shopping and restaurants. An older building renovated with smallish rooms/ensuites. The reception staff could have been friendlier - on a Sunday evening we encountered somebody behind reception who was only to eager to say she was new and could not help us with... More

Clean and friendly. Convenient location for that side of town. Easy walk to shops. Close to nice running tracks. Rooms are a good size. Breakfast was enjoyable with your usual travellers breakfast buffet selection. All very fresh though. Pillows were a bit worn (all 4 in my room and at least one other of the group travelling made the same... More

Stayed here for two nights for business. Got a good rate that included breakfast. Arrived on a stinking hot Canberra day, the aircon was on and my room was nice and cool. The hotel is old but has been nicely refurbished and was fine for a short stay with little time spent in the room. Lots of things close by,... More
