Fresh,Clean,comfortable and good value.We loved that they had blankets for the bed,which we personally find a lot more comfortable and heat adjustable than a hot Doona. Pleasant ,friendly staff . Our second stay and equally happy. Can genuinely recommend to others.

The Statesman provides a very good level of budget accommodation with everything you could want including a restaurant, hotel, bottle shop and within ten minutes of the centre of town. The room was quite good, especially the shower, and there was secure parking right below the room. Recommended but dont bother with the cooked breakfast.

This was my second time in Canberra, and both times I have chosen the Statesman for my stay. It is conveniently located, closed to Embassies and close to shops and restaurants. The hotel is a bit tired but caters for both business and family travellers. My room was comfortable with good bed, and well set bathroom and shower. The front... More

I had three nights back at the Statesman, where I had stayed previously. Still same old tired look, carpets etc in need of replacement, rooms old style but clean, beds fine and comfortable, good amenities, small but hot shower, usual tea and coffee facilities, micro wave, fridge. It is 5 minutes drive from my grandchildren, convenient shops nearby, great coffee... More

Our rooms were very comfortable with not much outside noise. The stairs (no lift) were entertaining for our daughter but thankfully we only went up and down them a few times. We ordered room service from the attached restaurant and it arrived quickly and was delicious. Our daughter left behind a precious toy and on phoning the evening after we... More

We had an emergency dash from the far South Coast of NSW to Canberra Hospital. We phoned the Hotel well after 11 O'clock at night after leaving the Hospital and the Night Manager was able to arrange a room for us. They usually keep a couple of rooms on the ground floor for such occasions. The A/C was on and... More

This is not a forum for personal vendettas. Your review is false and damaging toward the Hotel and our guests and our records show you have never stayed with us at the Hotel. Any such concerns or allegations should first be brought to the Managers attention and then to be treated as a police matter. Your comment has been reported... More

For the price and star rating, I really wasn't expecting anything other than a bed to sleep on and a roof over my head. I was really pleasantly surprised. It's in a quiet location with plenty of parking. The lobby is clean and attached to a pub/bistro, which is right next door to a Coles. In the room was a... More

The walls are extremely thin and you can hear every word the people in the next room are saying. Particularly when they come home late. The secure parking is a fenced in area! Basic hotel at budget rate. Difficult to find from the centre of Canberra.
