This hotel is 5 minutes drive from Parliament House and offers good value for money as far as Canberra hotels go. There is undercover parking but if you arrive late it is more likely your vehicle would be outside. Both are free of charge. The rooms are spacious and both the bed and the pillows were very comfortable, something I'm a tad fussy about. I'd recommend a room on the third (top) floor as the rooms are situated around the perimeter of the breakfast and lounge areas. I am a very light sleeper and I could hear traffic from Camberra Avenue but it was not 'loud'. The bathroom was very clean and well-equipped with shampoo, grooming kits etc.
Breakfast was $18 and $22 if you wished to include hot food from the buffet. Staff were very helpful and,apart from an error made on my bill calculation, couldn't have gone out of their way more.
The carpet is a dull green but otherwise it is a pleasant place to stay and I would recommend it for business stays rather than families with young children due to the layout of the hotel.
I didn't get to use the gym but the usual facilities are available in this hotel.
