We felt that this hotel was disappointing for Canberra we expected more for the cost of $150 per night. The hot tub was smelly and didn't work properly and the amenities around the pool were minimal. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Booked 2 rooms double rooms. Bathroom has been updated and was of a good size. Beds are super comfy and rooms are very quiet and very clean. We used the swimming pool which provided some pool toys for the kids. The hotel is in walking distance to Manuka shops. This is my 2nd time that we have stayed here and...

Dear Emelia29, It was very disappointing to read your comments regarding the hotel and in particular your comment regarding the rooms being tiny. Our lead in room is 32 square metres, which on average is larger than the majority of hotel rooms in Canberra. Our bathrooms are in the process of being fully renovated, it is unfortunate that you were...

Good place for couples to stay and enjoy the breakfast. Not as great for families unless they are young as the rooms are smallish, but overall a good place. We booked through wotif and like many places always search for deals.

The hotel is in a great location, only a few minutes' walk from Manuka where there are lots of places to eat. There is an underground car park, a bit cramped and hard to manoeuvre a large car around! The days I were there were very hot, and the air-conditioning on level 3 was not keeping up. The friendly receptionist...

Dear Tonymf, Thanks so much for your comments from your recent stay. Canberra has been suffering through some unusually hot days so far this year but I am pleased that you were able to enjoy the air conditioning in the rooms.

Rooms are a bit dated and daggy but a good size and good lay out. Room service food took over an hour, after being told when ordering it would only be half an hour. The food that eventually arrived was pretty ordinary.. A smaller than entree sized ravioli for $26!!!!!.... Way too expensive for what it is! Had a similar...

Stayed for 2 night in a Embassy Suite. There were 5 of us and the room was very spacious although with kids a table and chairs would have been good to eat at. We only had 1 chair between 5 of us. Buffet breakfast was great with a good selection. The Restaurant for dinner had a very limited menu with...

Stayed here the few days between Xmas and New Year. First impression upon eventually getting into our room was "it's brown". The carpet was brown, the walls are brown, the bedding is brown, the curtains are brown, the coffee and side table are brown, extremely underwhelming really. After reveling in all of the brown-ness I thought that a brown frothy...
