We've stayed often at The Brassey because we find it's close to everything and yet you feel like you're in the suburbs. Staff always helpful and the rooms nice. Bar is great and you can easily strike up a decent conversation there. Low key and relaxed charm

This is an "old" hotel with plenty of character. Some refurbishment is underway. The rooms are large, with large beds and the bathroom is more than adequate. The air conditioner wasn't fantastic though. The hotel is close to good restaurants and the shopping area is only a 5-10 minute walk. Car parking space seems to be limited, but where else...

We had made our booking a few hours before arriving. Reception was most pleasant and our subsequent request for a lower floor room met instantly - we didn't want to lug our heavy bags upstairs . Easy distance to attractions and restaurants.

Dear tezabbot Thank you for your feedback. You are absolutely correct that our brand new gym is currently having its finishing touches completed as I write. We are hoping to have it open by month end for a great addition to the hotel. For future reference, a vending machine full of items traditionally found in a minibar is located in...

What a wonderful night we had at the Brassy hotel. It was just a one night stay in Canberra, but I was pleasantly surprised at this gem of a hotel. Apparently the building is about 90 years old, and it looks beautiful. The inside has been totally renovated and is very nice. Our room was very large, with a king...

Dear Gunner do Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. As a heritage property, we don't have a lift, however, we can accommodate ground floor preferences, simply request this when you are making your reservation. You can avoid the credit card surcharge by either booking directly with the hotel or by paying by cash or Eftpos. Great to...

Situated close to Parliament House in a leafy green suburb this hotel is a remnant of an older time. The room was spacious, very clean and tidy, and the king bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was on the small side, and the water ran hot and cold in the small shower, but for those with a sense of nostalgia...
