We booked a wotif secret room at a bargain price and were anxious to see what this hotel was like after so so reports on this forum. The hotel is a short drive just outside of the city area...very close to Parliment House. We were delighted at an upgrade at checkin...and indeed very surprised as it was peak time (summernats) in Canberra. The checkin staff were absolutely lovely. Our king room on the 3rd floor was extreemly spacious, clean and the bed truely sublime. The television could be updated to give the room a more modern feel..but otherwise we were very pleased. Our roomservice dinner was reasonable in price and very tasty and well presented...as was our room service breakfast. The indoor pool was much larger than most hotels and it had access to an outdoor area too. We have stayed at many many hotels both here in Australia and overseas and this hotel is by no means as bad as reported in some reviews in my opionion....Yes the hotel could use an update in parts...and a touch up to some cosmetic appearances would make a more modern looking hotel I'm sure. But overall we were very very happy with our stay....and yes we will be back.
