We spent a week at this place and actually felt quite at home. What set the right tone was that in addition to instructions emailed to us earlier, on the day we were due to check in we received a text message confirming that they were expecting us and giving us our security codes to get into the building and so on. This sort of personalised things as well as allowing us to go straight to our accommodation without the usual check-in rigmarole. We found the unit to be very clean which was important because I am very fussy about that as most people are. One of the reasons we chose this place was that the unit had its own cooking facilities which saved us a lot of money and, apart from cost, we get tired of restaurant and takeaway food. The unit had a double bed and a lounge which pulled out to a bed although we just used it as a lounge which made for a bit more comfort. The bed had a decent mattress which was good but the first night was marred by a dripping tap in the kitchenette. I eventually put a dish cloth under it which quietened it and when I rang the management in the morning to complain about it they apologized profusely and sent the maintenance man straight around to fix it so that was not too much of a problem. This place is quite close to Parliament House and various places of interest such as the National Gallery and War Museum and so on and is in a side street so there was very little street noise. The accommodation was not five star but it was clean, comfortable, secure and well located and the price was very moderate by Canberra standards. In fact it was the cheapest we could find for the dates we wanted and given that it also enabled us to self cater we got good value for what we paid.
