We were traveling back to Melbourne, saw The Carrington from the road and booked in fairly late at night. Our host was very welcoming and saw to all our needs. He made sure the room was warm. We would like to stay there again.

Great for a weekend getaway. Close to everything you need in Bungendore. Room was neat and spacious, a little dated but still plenty of county charm - I believe the new owner is planning a refurb soon anyway. Comfy bed and good amenities. The restaurant is under going a refit so was not open but our package included Dinner at... More

rooms are very spacious and comfy, good strong hot shower, good TV , small kitchen with basic equipment. Nice quiet spot with easy walking to a variety of attractions/shops/eateries.We had not planned to stay here, in fact we were supposed to be camping but the heavens opened up for several days and the Carrington Inn became a very welcome refuge.

Our MX5 car club booked 13 rooms for the night. Check-in was handled efficiently, considering we all arrived at the same time! Rooms are very large and clean (ideal if travelling with a baby and portable cot), bed comfortable, and a small kitchette with fridge, microwave, toaster, plates & cutlery provided should you wish to bring breakfast. Cereal available for... More

Although the (closed) restaurant is on the main road, there is no signage indicating the existence of the motel. which we only found after wandering the verandahs of the restaurant and reading a small notice. No one was in Reception ... on either day... and we had to phone the owner to get our key. Pity the customer who doesn't... More

The staff were friendly. Rooms are charming and well priced. Everything was beautifully clean. Gardens are delightful. Situated in the centre of town, close to some excellent little cafes and shops. Will stay again. Highly recommended.

Average 80s accommodation; service and facilities acceptable. Bed ok; room a little dark as no main light. Small kitchen but no indoor table & chairs (some outside). Clean, tidy, fresh linen. Room could do with a freshen up - few dead bugs under the front door on arrival; otherwise clean. Located in centre of town; one block from pubs.

Dear CM67Melb. Fare comment about the 1980’s look. While we have been proud of that original natural wood look and high ceilings, we agree it is time for a refresh. Throughout 2014 we will be redecorating all our guest rooms to make them lighter and brighter. Sixty percent of the rooms will also be getting private patio gardens so guests... More

I booked accommodation here for my boss for a business trip recently for a two-night stay. As I'm more...savvy...with computers, I'm uploading her review.

Happened on the Carrington by chance on my way back to Melbourne from Sydney. Stayed for two nights and thoroughly satisfied with the excellence of a) the service from Edwina in reception, b) the condition of the room (spacious, clean, comfortable, warm, and all amenities in first-rate condition). Everything I needed for a welcome break. Highly recommend for any occasion!... More

We had high expectations for our stay, based on the Carrington's reputation when we lived near Canberra. Things have obviously changed since then. When we arrived reception was locked even though we arrived before 7PM. Edwina arrived very soon after our phone call and was very pleasant and helpful. However it was a real disappointment to find that the restaurant... More

Dear Criamora, I’m so sorry to read that your stay wasn't up to your expectation. It is true that our flagship restaurant is closed for refurbishment but we have made arrangements for other good restaurants within a block of the Inn, to look after our guests as we would ourselves.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Established in 1885, The Carrington Inn has enjoyed a colourful and adventurous life. Initially a coaching inn for travellers on the Cobb & Co route the Carrington has in its century and a half existence, also been a general store and a private residence. In the 1980's it was lovingly restored as the Inn's warm and hospitable dining restaurant and the cornerstone to our good conference and accommodation facilities on the five acre property. We are very proud to offer the Carrington to you as a homely place to celebrate, relax, unwind, or stay. Our specialty is to cater for meetings and celebrations of between 15 and 60 people. The Carrington Inn environment is perfect for events where it is important to stay focused and not distracted by external noise, intrusiveness, or unpleasantness. The Inn is a foundation piece of Bungendore, a thriving country town with good food, boutique shops, arts, crafts, and Australian heritage. It's a small town and easy to get around on foot, while being welcomed everywhere you go. The Carrington Inn is just 35 minutes by car from Parliament House and 30 minutes from Canberra International Airport. It is beautifully located so as to enjoy the museums and culture of our national capital, the wineries and crafts of the region, while having a base that is comfortable, safe and hospitable. It is the perfect staging post for adventures in the cool climate wine country of the Southern Tablelands, or trips to the coast (90 minutes - East), or the snow (3 hours - South). The Carrington Inn has 26 well-appointed rooms each with kitchenette, air conditioning, flat screen television, phone, and WiFi. Many of our rooms have private gardens and some have relaxing spa baths. Off-street parking is free. All our buildings and gardens support disabled access. PLEASE NOTE: OUR RESTAURANT IS CURRENTLY UNDERGOING REFURBISHMENT and is closed. It will reopen with an exciting new menu and decor later in the year. In the meantime, there are other lovely local restaurants and cafes who will treat Carrington Inn guests as we would ourselves. ... more   less
