We stayed here on a recent trip to Canberra and wanted something reasonable and good value. Found this was a great place for our needs. A short drive to all of the attractions and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked at the bistro for dinner and they were serving 100 school kids, so they put us in... More

I love having full kitchen wherever we go. This place not only provides that, but a clean and spacious interior, your own entrance with plenty of parking at the front, easy access to Canberra and safe and secure environment for kids to ride bikes or just roam about. Recommended!

Not 5 star but suited us as it had space. Went to Kanga Cup in July with 4 boys. Its old and the shower wets the bathroom a bit, but if you want a cheap and spacious (big grounds) this is great. Could do laundry for $4 plus dryer for another $4. It was just what we needed.

Good, clean, well priced rooms. Close to the city. Even on a -3 morning, the room was still a nice temperature. Parking is close to your room. Small but adequate kitchenette facilities. Separate parents room.

An ageing property but well maintained. Quiet and comfy but a bit far away from other venues so driving is a must to access entertainment or restaurants etc... KItchenette included and separate bedroom/bathroom.

A great place for families to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, self contained units with your own kitchenette. The kids loved they had their own bed in their own space. Lots of room for the kids to run around, there is also an outdoor swimming pool.

Unfortunately we stayed just for one night but it felt like home. The beds are comfortable, the rooms have a lot of space and a fitted kitchen and the atmosphere is pretty cosy. Bathroom, Kitchen and the rooms are clean! The staff is super friendly and we enjoyed our delicious breakfast! The selection was huge and we definitely recommend the... More

A little way from other properties but well maintained all ground floor units with adjacent parking . Would suit those who prefer to avoid stairs. Very quiet location. Staff at reception are efficient. I liked the rooms. No restaurant on weekends but I didn't need one. Wifi is free but not a good reception area. I would recommend for those... More

If you are looking for somewhere to stay that is a bit out of town I would recommend this place. The rooms have there own kitchen so you can cook (great for families to save some money). Nice and quite. The rooms seem a bit old but well maintained.

We stayed 4 nights. We had one meal in the restaurant which was OK and reasonably priced. It was a bit of a drive to central Canberra. Staff were very good, even replacing a bed that was partial broken. Pool are good. Would probably stay again.
