I stay here every Tuesday and the staff are excellent from reception to the restaurant and bar staff, a very family friendly hotel or great for business stays. The restaurant food is superb my only criticism is that the menu does not change often enough to cater for the regular guests. Overall though I give them 5 stars out of... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

First, was the hotel easy to find? Yes. I must say, a GPS helps but for all of that, it was quite visible. There is nothing worse than driving about, tired, looking for a hotel "tucked away" somewhere. The building appeared new, crisp and well looked after. Reception was as it should be. Friendly, helpful, in short, excellent. The desk... More

The hotel is modern, clean and very comfortable. Customer service at the front desk is excellent. Free wifi and parking adds extra value to your stay. A bit farther from the city centre than other hotels but still an easy 10-15min drive to anywhere.

We spent the weekend visiting Floriade, the War Museum and lots of other landmarks on our bikes. The hotel is very well situated, clean and friendly. Have been there 3 times now, each time was the same. The food was great, room clean and tidy etc. etc.

In the past, I hadn't associated the Best Western name with great accommodation, but two recent stays at Best Western Plus properties have completely changed my mind, and it's now one of my preferred brands. This place was a pleasure to stay at. Don't expect the formality of some city 5 star hotels, but staff were without exception pleasant, and... More

Dear Suzn1234, Best Western has recently launched an additional two types of hotels to complement our existing offering. We now have PREMIER hotels (super-snazzy and indulgent!) and PLUS hotels (a genuine step up in terms of service, room quality and facilities) and I'm thrilled that you have had the opportunity to test out our BEST WESTERN PLUS range. We are... More

Nice hotel. Free car parking, free wi fi and free continental breakfast. The $5 upgrade to a hot breakfast is worth it! Staff are very friendly and the happy hour at the bar was popular and well priced. Rooms were ok bathrooms need a little work. Shame this hotel is so far out of town!!!!

Dear Missb781, Our sensational Breakfast Chef does a fantastic job of cooking up some tummy-warming goodies each morning and I'm glad you had a chance to enjoy a hearty start to your morning. We are just under 10km from the CBD, but as one of our other reviewers here has pointed out, the southside is buzzing with activity and our... More

I booked the mystery hotel on lastminute.com.au and was pleasantly surprised with the Best Western Garden City hotel. We got an executive suite (2 rooms) on the pool side of the hotel for an extremely reasonable price. It was quiet, very clean, the staff were very helpful and there were three clubs right next door. We've only ever stayed on... More

Dear Maria, Thanks for staying with us recently; our One Bedroom Suites are very popular with our guests requiring a little extra space. I am also glad you have had a chance to explore the inner-south of Canberra. We have a vibrant dining and cultural scene on this side of town (I'm biased, perhaps, but I think we leave our... More

It has free wi-fi and free car park. The surrounding is quite. It has a small pool for summer time. It's close to Questacon Science Museum. There is an air-conditioner which can also be used as a heater.

A good place for an overnight stay coming home to Sydney from a weekend away at the snow. We arrived late-ish Sunday night, but the staff were welcoming and helpful. After a comfortable night's sleep, woke to a tasty buffet breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

This motel was good value and easy to find for a motorcyclist travelling from the coast. Staff were helpful, happy hour appreciated as was the option of dining at the in-house restaurant.

Dear Ian, We enjoy the company of many touring motorcyclists. Best Western has recently launched a partnership with the Harley Owners Group to extend a discount to all members. Of course we love all of our motorcyclist guests, regardless of the brand of their machine, and we'd be happy to look after you again next time you are in Canberra.... More
