We had a restful stopover here, a last minute decision to escape some terrible driving conditions on the way home from the snow. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and comfortable (although sadly lacking a microwave), the heater was effective (although rather noisy), the buffet breakfast was tasty and especially fun for the five...

At $118 per night the room (mid July 2016) was great value. The room was very clean and comfortable. The only shortcoming was the smallness of the bathroom. The central air-conditioning system worked well and I did not have to use the supplementary air-con unit available in the room although it was a frosty time of Canberra (mid-winter) with overnight...

Excellent value for money, really great customer service throughout my stay. Rooms are modern and comfortable. Location is average, parking can sometimes be tight but I managed to find a spot every night I was there. Also, while I appreciate the free WiFi, it is quite slow. Highly recommended.

Boring menu that hasn't changed in ages, though the food is fine. Very friendly staff and comfortable bed. Bathrooms are tiny and if your a large person you wouldnt fit.. Ask for if you dont like being squished.

The staff here are always friendly and welcoming. This hotel is easy to access, has plenty of parking and the rooms are all very tidy and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant every night and the food was all tasty and served with a smile.

I travel for a living, hotel to hotel, this is a strong 4 out of 5 as it has many things others don't in Australia. Very good location & ease of access with lots of free parking. Arrived on a Sunday late evening, warm reception at check in with lots of friendly advice. No food service on Sunday on site... More

Booked without a lot of knowledge about Canberra so was pleasantly surprised that hotel was not far from many of the sites we wished to see. Also close to train station for intercity connections. Nice friendly staff good large rooms and good restaurant. Will definitely stay here again.
