While not at the high end of cost for Canberra, this hotel saw better days 50 years ago and seems stuck at that point in time. Floor was so dirty on arrival I had to request a thorough cleaning in order to continue sleeping there. The restaurant serves well-cooked meals but in an atmosphere redolent of 60's chic-ness that has...

The rooms are pretty basic with limited hanging and drawer space and a pretty small bathroom (shower isn't very deep and for a larger person it's tough to have room to close the door to the toilet), but after telling the reception staff that the floor was dirty and very dusty and that we needed it well-cleaned we came back...

We have used this hotel a few times as it is close to friends especially if they are booked out for family functions! It isn’t expensive as we were there over the Christmas period however the restaurant and bar were closed. It is 2 storey so no lift if you are disabled however ramps on the ground floor. We didn’t...

We required urgent accommodation after two family members were involved in an accident and flown to Canberra hospital- we rang at 7am asking if we could take a room straight away so we could shower and then get back to the hospital - no problem at all with no additional cost. Later when additional family members arrived they quickly and...

All went well just about sums it up. The booking was uncomplicated, the price was reasonable, the room was very comfortable and clean, the staff were friendly and helpful. Oh - there were plenty of options for eating and drinking (even for gambling for those inclined that way). The nearby shopping center is home to one of Canberras best second...

I could not believe it. The stairway carpet looked a bit tired, but what a surprise when I entered my room. It was a decent size, very clean, well laid out. The bathroom was spotless, no mould in the shower. I will definitely stay there again, and it is only 10 minutes into the city centre. The bed was very...

The receptionist was very nice and explained clearly all the rules (checkin time, checkout time... etc). Room was clean and quiet. Hopefully one day they will upgrade the TVset (very small screen and far from bed, hard to watch). Location of the motel is near a pub, where we could find good food and plenty beer.

This was my first time staying here and I had a deluxe balcony room. On the positive side - the room was quite spacious and had a decent-sized balcony for sitting outside. The rooms are a bit dated but, given the price, that didn't bother me. I found mine quite spacious. (Some new pillows though would be a good idea,...

Our room is on the 2nd storey, so we have to carry the luggages to the room. We managed to get this room with 2 beds. The room is big and spacious and the beds are more than comfortable to rest our tired bodies after a 3hr plus journey. The heater is strong enough to keep us warm throughout the...

We were in Canberra for a family wedding and found this hotel to be inexpensive and well located. Taxi fares to and from venues in the city were reasonable. The breakfasts (not included in tariff) were excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. Teabags, etc were topped up daily. The rooms were comfortable and spotless. The hotel is right...
