Stayed here about 12 months ago when just taken over from previous owner. Refurbishment appears to be mostly complete with a couple of painters still around.
On both visits, booked through Accor website, details were lost or not or incomplete.
Once in the rooms have modern facilities with the period flavour of its origins.
Initially I was offered a room close to reception  which was small and the window overlooked by an external fire escape and an internal connecting walkway.
The requested change was fuss free and rooms anywhere along either side or rear would be recommended.
Breakfast was good although room service food quality [ steak ] was average. Eat in the bistro next time.
Room "make up" was good and check out efficient and professional.
Well located for car access to Canberra's sights but still possible to walk [ approx 20min ] to city centre if preferred.
Would stay again
