“Comfortable, clean and quite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

My husband and I booked though a booking agent to stay at McMillan gardens. Obviously the price was great for our stay in Canberra over a sitting week. We found the accommodation to be very clean and very well equipped with everything we needed for a 7 night stay. I had a midweek service at a very reasonable rate of $50.00. The housekeeping girls were spot on, it was lovely to come back after a huge day to a unit the same as when we checked in (Thanks Yuri). We have decided this will be on the top of the list for our Canberra stays and we would highly recommend McMillan Gardens.

Room Tip: If you are on buisness and out all day, the standard studio units are perfect.

Stayed one night at McMillan. Whilst I knew I paid a reasonable rate (around AUD$120 per night), I felt I should have paid $10 more to stay for one of my usual hotels. The accommodation offered all you would expect from a $120 a night motel, reasonably clean, a kitchen with all utensils good enough for self-catering, a bathroom with reasonable amenities.
As one of the first review wrote, the noise was an issue for me too. I could hear every move of neibhouring occupants. I could hear them open/shut doors, them speak on their mobile phones, etc. It was hardly a peaceful night stay I had. I don't know what the management can do about this issue... If those occupants are permanent residents. After all, whilst I do appreciate a very user friendly price tag the management offers, I don't know if this institution will be one of my first choices when it comes to Canberra accommodation...

My partner and I recently booked through Wotif to stay at MacMillan Gardens Short-Term Accommodation, Griffith (www.canbhol.com.au) between 3rd Jan and 8th Jan. While it was clean and well-equipped, we would just like to let you know that we had to leave one day early and check in to another motel because our unit was directly below a unit owned by a person whose every footfall and movement could be heard throughout the night, including the very early hours of the morning, and thus preventing us from sleep.

Having contacted MacMillan Gardens after this first occurred, we were advised to speak with the resident above, and he was also contacted by MacMillan Gardens. However, the noise continued for two more nights. When we finally decided to leave early, MacMillan Gardens refused to reimburse us for the final day of our booking, simply stating to “see the terms and conditions”, and that our room could not be changed due to being booked out.

It is worth noting that any future visitors to the particular unit we were given will experience much the same disturbance from the occupant upstairs (he is a permanent resident), and that the construction of the building is such that this will continue unless mitigation is provisioned (eg carpeting the floorboards).
