Originally booked this hotel for one night as I hadn't stayed here before. Got a great deal on a Deluxe Room. The room was clean and comfortable so I extended my stay for another night. The rooms service was fantastic. Great food at reasonable prices and service was speedy. The only downfall seemed to be early in the morning when... More

At the time of writing the Pavilion is number 22 out of 52 hotels in Canberra. This probably says as much about hotels in Canberra as it does about the Pavilion. This is just an average hotel on one of the busiest streets in Canberra. I stayed only one night. As previous reviewers have noted it is currently undergoing serious... More

Stayed here for 2 nights for a work trip in a spa suite. Hotel is dated and is currently under renovation. Stayed in the apartment block. Rooms were spacious, however woke up with ants crawling all over the bed and on the headboard and on the floor near the bed. Was swapped to another room for the second night, which... More

Stayed here recently whilst visiting family in Canberra. I shared a room with my son. Bed comfy and room warm but bathroom very dated. No where to hang clothing or toilet bag. Ended up with clothes on the toilet and bag on the floor. Decided that the price for breakfast was too dear so are elsewhere. Gated parking handy but... More

Our second enjoyable stay in a well priced Deluxe Room at the Pavilion on Northbourne. Whilst not the newest or most modern hotel in town, it is a clean, comfortable and quiet place to stay for a few days. The restaurant is undergoing a complete renovation, so hopefully the rooms get an upgrade in the future too. The shower flow... More

Have stayed here many times in the past so when my daughter booked it for business I was happy to stay here to babysit for her. We were four generations travelling. I was thoroughly disappointed to see the extent of the renovations. The whole middle section of the hotel was guttered and barricade off but we could see from the... More

Stayed two nights on business. Sadly the hotel doesn't even look half way through its major reno. This means the lovely atrium bar/restaurant area doesn't exist at present. No appeal whatsoever except for the excellent service from front desk staff. I know it is hard for the hotel during such a big reno, but I would suggest elsewhere until it's... More

Just not a good experience. Nothing majorly wrong with the place but a few things will stop me from going back. When we arrived a quite friendly front desk clerk was offering the person in front of me a room upgrade for a cost that I thought sounded a bit much. He also told her it was usually more to... More

Being located on Northbourne Ave is a great help in Canberra. Is on the left coming from Sydney. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Although we faced the main road, there was no sound at all. Good size rooms. When entering behind security parking, insert card AND push the button if it does not open!! Restaurant is being renovated unfortunately,... More
