We stayed in a 1 bed apartment with 2 kids aged 9 and 11 for 2 nights. The kitchen was very well furnished, loved having the nespresso machine. There was a washing machine and tumble drier. There was 1 king bed and a sofa bed - this only suited us because we had camping gear with us and were able to set up a bed for one of the kids with the other on the sofa bed. The decor throughout was gorgeous and the public areas also. The restaurant was good but nothing for kids unless they have sophisticated tastes. I suggest walking 10 minutes up the road where there is about 10 restaurants in all cuisine styles. The hotel is very central and you can walk/cycle through Telopia Park to the lake. Overall I would say that it is a great place to stay for a couple of days of if you are working in Canberra....fabulous!
