We enjoyed our stay here pretty affordable and was quiet spacious. We liked that we could cook our own meals. The pool was great, as was the playground. It was also a good location. Friendly staff and almost nearby to all the attractions. Would definitely recommend to other people and love to stay again.

For the price, I didn't find it value for money. The rooms had a cheap feel about them. Clean and tidy, friendly staff. Our room looked onto the side of an adjoining house, the view was of their window. The room was next to a hallway, which you could hear people talking and closing doors, a bit noisy.

We enjoyed our stay here when we wanted to stay somewhere affordable for a family. We liked that we could cook our own meals. Having a separate bedroom away from the children's was a bonus. We would have liked to have had a bath in the room though. The pool was great, as was the playground. It was also a...

Stayed with my family for 2 nights at the end of December because we used to stay here many years ago when it was part of Best Western. Upon arrival my mother was rudely spoken to by a female safe member who told her if she broke anything she would have to pay and questioned over whether the credit card...

A quiet room (except for hot-water service running outside the window), helpful staff, onsite parking, good value while accompanying someone for a hospital stay, disappointing that restaurant was closed, not close to shops etc. I will stay again if I need to stay in Canberra.

My family with 2kids stayed here during floriade and had to book a room here as it was a last minute decision. But it amazed us as we thought, being a budget room would be disappointing.It was an individual cottage(like the others they have) with a separate bedroom and 2 bunk beds in the common area. The room was well...

The accommodation was large and well equipped. Shower powerful and hot, location quiet. Everything you could want. The staff were fantastic and being 7km out of Canberra its a quieter area but next to hwys to get you anywhere you want fast. I got a hire car from the airport which is only a couple of km down the road....

Spacious, clean, quiet rooms. Clean laundry facilities on site. Wifi. Only missing hot plates in the room to fully meet our needs. Last street on the edge of the city, but at least parking doesn't cost anything!
