3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was dreary, the shower dripped, there was a lot of internal noise and the television picture was very poor. On the plus side the bed was very comfortable (I like them firm), the atrium was nice and there was parking. The Pavilion probably works better as business accommodation rather than for families. Wifi was expensive.

We stayed in 109, right next to the offending door and heard absolutely nothing. The reception desk staffer was unfailingly polite, friendly and professional. We booked through Booking.com, paid by credit card and received the discount offer. The room was a little tired looking but spotlessly neat and clean, what more could you ask. We had a great night's sleep... More

We stumbled upon this wonderful motel as the one we usually stayed in was booked out. This was the next closest to the Dickson restaurants and Thoroughbred Park racetrack. We were very impressed with the presentation, pleasant and helpful staff, freebies - newspapers, magazines and complimentary bottle of bubbly! And fantastic buffet breakfast included in the very reasonable price. What's... More

I've stayed at the Pavilion several times. Most recently I stayed there on the 29th of December 2014 and the 18th of January 2015. My stays there have been of mixed quality, but the place definitely seems to be going downhill, and it wasn't far up the hill to begin with. I won't be returning. First of all, I chose... More

The Pavilion is an excellent hotel, the hotel is in a great location, and the price is very reasonable. The food at the restaurant and room service is delicious. We always have a lovely stay! Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice and relaxing stay in Canberra.

Our family trip this year took us via Canberra for a 3-day, 2 night stopover. We had a two bedroom apartment at the southern end, overlooking the car parking. Very spacious, clean and accessible via the lift. We found the Pavilion on Northbourne to be quite central to family activities planned. The facilities, whilst perhaps somewhat dated, were well maintained,... More

While the actual room was on the old side it was clean and a good size. The down stairs are is newly renovated and has a lovely tropical feel with small areas for drinking and eating. The dinner we had was very enjoyable.

While the rooms are fine there was a loud humming noise that made sleep difficult. Further, while there were openning windows allowing fresh air there were no screens to stop mosquitos getting in so we had to close the windows. Bathroom in the two bedroom we stayed in was fine. Beds were fine. So while normally I'd normally rate this... More
