Overall a comfortable hotel downside was the staff not very helpful or informative, we arrived and found major renovations ongoing so car parking space VERY limited. Hotel has no dining facilities or a bar - when we asked given vague directions to a "sister"hotel for food and drinks

Most comfortably furnished room was marvellous to return to after a day visiting Canberra's attractions. Luxurious feather ? bed was perfect for a good night's rest. Large lounge chairs meant relaxed television viewing. Fresh apples in room appreciated upon arrival. Most welcoming staff; efficient online check in as well as at hotel.

This is a budget hotel. When you view it as such then you will be satisfied. It has no correlation to the other Doma hotels in standard. Which are usually very good. Rooms large but dated. No bar, cafe or restaurant on site. Your room doesn't even have a mini bar - just a few tea bags and a kettle.... More

When travelling for business I have (I think) pretty simple needs - clean, comfortable bed, adequate air conditioning and a decent pressure in the shower. The Brassey doesn't stack up for me. I'll start with the positives - generously sized room, old world charm, moderate prices, good location and parking. Unfortunately these are outweighed by uncomfortable bed (pushed together singles...

The hotel has preserved its old world charm but our stay would have been greatly enhanced by modern conveniences like hooks on the back of the ensiute door, more shelf space in the ensuite and stronger wifi (very weak in #378).

An older style hotel in a newly developed precinct, this offers a nice balance to your stay. The rooms are comfortably furbished - with the same amazing beds as sister Domo hotels nearby, the staff professional and friendly, and only 100m to a number of cafes, restaurants and bars. It's also often better value for money than it's neighbors -... More

Good price on booking.com so went for it. All good before arriving. Lots of renovation going on including in room which smelt of fresh sealant, not so good. Not sure upgrade was worth it. But on plus side bed very comfortable and position ideal for all I wanted to do.
