I had a one bed room, ground level, unit which was large enough for a one week business stay in Canberra. The property is well located just off busy roads; there is a shopping centre within 500m walk, with a good selection of restaurants, plus a hotel with bottle shop across the road. There is good under cover parking.
The unit is not the most modern - but most things work. The iron didn't, and was replaced same day. The cooking facilities and kitchen inventory are sufficient if you are not doing gourmet cooking or entertaining - a microwave and a combined benchtop hotplate and oven. There was no exhaust fan in the unit, so had to be careful with the stove. The unit had split system air conditioners in each room, so you were not at the mercy of a centralised system - they worked well, fortunately, as I was there during a very cold period.
The property does have WiFi - I didn't use it, as it was too expensive. Setting up a mobile phone as a "hot spot" would be a cheaper option.
A couple of minor design faults - the major one was the combined spa bath and shower had no shower curtain or screen, leading to a very wet floor and a potentially slippery exit from the shower. This could be fixed, with a little thought.
Overall, I'd stay there again; it was not over-the-top with high end furnishings, but it was cost effective, had everything required at a moderate level and was close to the business I was visiting.
The rooms at street level have a nice walled courtyard, with a locked gate permitting direct access...
