Tall trees is located in the quiet and leafy suburb of Ainslie, one of Canberra's oldest suburbs and is located about 5 kms from the city centre. ( 40 minute walk to the major shopping precinct of the Canberra Centre and surrounding businesses and restaurants). The Ainslie shops are a ten minute walk away, with a supermarket, bakery, chemist, popular corner bistro and 2 restaurants- including the renowned "Pulp Kitchen".
I booked us in for a weekend special deal which comprised Friday, Saturday and Sunday night for $115 per night.
Our room was comfortable with the following facilities: a medium sized bar fridge, a microwave, cutlery and crockery for two and an electric jug as well as a medium sized wall mounted TV with access to a number of Foxtel channels in addition to the usual free to air.
The bathroom was clean and modern with a plentiful supply of towels and the usual array of toiletries.
There were a few minor niggles - no detergent or small cloth for wiping down benches etc and no tea towel. If you are providing some self catering facilities it would seem a good idea to provide these items in the interest of the overall cleanliness of the unit. My other pet peeve - an overstocked minibar - was also evident. As usual, this meant there was no room for our supplies without rearranging the fridge and removing some of the contents elsewhere. I also found the reception staff a little offhand when we arrived. No welcoming smiles, and a slightly grumpy approach. On the other hand the cleaning staff were very pleasant and helpful.
The hotel has a bistro where breakfast is served and I noticed the menu for dinner seemed very reasonably priced. There is also a guest laundry with free washing machine use and a dryer available for a $2 charge.
The hotel was obviously very popular during our stay as all the car parking spaces were full and all of the rooms seemed to be occupied. Despite this the hotel was incredibly quiet and I enjoyed an excellent nights sleep each night.
I was very pleased with our choice of hotel overall and would definitely stay there again.
