A friend's recommendation took us to the East Hotel. It isn't easy finding accommodation for two adults and four children and this newly established hotel in Manuka is going to make it hard to find anywhere else in the country that can live up to its standard for family accommodation. The rooms are perfectly laid out for children. The bunk room with the xbox, tables and chairs, colouring equipment and own kitchenette and bathroom gave us the opportunity to close the door and have a rest knowing the kids were safe. The Hotel is located within minutes of Manuka's key restaurants and attractions which allowed us to walk everywhere (even though it was mid-winter). The restaurant in the hotel books very quickly - a trick for new players as we missed out two nights in a row. The staff were all very pleasant and more than willing to help and more than anything weren't phased by large families and multiple kids. It is a bit pricy compared to other accommodation in Canberra but at the end of a four day stay it was worth every cent.
