I travel to Canberra on regular basis on business trips,I was excited when I found out that there is a new hotel in town! I decided to try it out, my first impression was the lobby was nice and modern however the staff at the front desk were not friendly and made me feel pretty cold inside.. Even though it was my first time staying there they didnt go through the services and I didnt feel welcome.. When I ordered room service that night, I had to wait 1.5 hours and nothing, after I made a call the food arrived 20 mintues later. Next morning my tray was still outside of my room which is one of the things I hate.. That morning I needed to grab a coffee to go, around 10:00am from the cafe shop on the ground floor when I was told that they dont serve coffee after 10:00 and that section is closed, so unless you get down there for breakfast dont expect to get a coffee...I guess in a way it was good because I drove to Kingston and got a great coffee from a beautiful cafe! So to summarise my comments: Nice accommodation, but no serivce and the mattress is hard so in my books this hotel has failed.
