Paid a little extra and upgraded, the mattress was divine and I slept like a log. Unfortunately the lighting in the lounge area was shocking, one dim light for a large area. Had dinner in my room and the steak was excellent and so it should have been at $43!! The bathroom was huge with a spa, BUT the air... More

Despite completing the “Impressions are important to us” form and also sending an email to the hotel after our June stay I have still not received a response from a hotel representative to address the issues we experienced.

Dear Geez1449, I appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback from your recent stay. The hotel was busy during the school holiday period and as I am sure you can appreciate, it is difficult at breakfast time to know when our guests will come to the restaurant and at times, everyone does come at once. This does result in... More

I stayed at this hotel about 10 years ago and it was looking a little dated then. It's at the parliament end of Canberra which is good if you want to visit some of the sites, Questacon etc are close by, but there's not much around it for an evening walk to cafe's and it's competing with some very nice...
