“What a great find!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

What a great find..... apartment hotel only minutes from Canberra's CBD. Wonderfully appointed one bedroom apartment (although there a two bedroom apartments also available). Quiet, clean and with everything you would need for a extended stay in Canberra. Unfortunately only stayed two nights. Will most definitely stay longer next time ...in this great little apartment/hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for the first time on the weekend, and I was very impressed. It is in a quiet location but close to shops and restaurants. We had originally booked a standard room, but we were updated to a one room apartment, which was very nice. The room was modern and well fitted. The bedroom is a bit tight but the bed was comfortable and the shower was fantastic. Would definitely stay at this hotel for every visit to Canberra from now on.

Spent one night here with my fiancee, on the way down from Syd to Melb by car. I consider it to be quite good value for money, as mid-range hotels go: it's new, clean, and comfortable. The complementary underground parking is big and secure. A great hotel option if you have a car, for the parking and for its proximity to the city centre (although it's a bit too long to comfortably walk to the centre, if you don't have a car). Reception and room service are courteous, although the service here is nothing jaw-dropping. Would stay here again.

Very good staff, very helpful. Rooms are okay, simple furniture, comfortable bed, not very large, good secure underground parking. A little difficult to find because it's on a side street and not well signed. Cafe in lobby with restaurant option available across a parking lot at another hotel.

Check-in and check-out were very easy (20secs each), the room was bland but clean (as I'd expect from this kind of a hotel). 15min walk to lots of restaurants. Off street parking. All up it was what I expected for the type of hotel in the area. Would stay there again if I'm ever in Canberra again.

Must say I was expecting much more given the Trip Advisor rating and also having just stayed at East Hotel.
Can't fault Reception staff who were very helpful and moved us from our first dingy room which suffered from some sort of air conditioning machine noise from across the street.
Second one bed apartment ( corner room) seemed a bit more spacious but still gloomy but they just aren't comfortable and user friendly given their rating here.

Carpet was dirty and compared to East little personal touches like complimentary decent tea, coffee, bathroom products etc definitely very poor quality.

Located a fair walk away from shops

I had a stay here once for three nights. The lift here was scary, room was very average and had a very small bathroom. I liked the open area for dining. This hotel in on Northbourne road but the market is not an easy walk from here.
