Any accom recommendations for this weekend?


Based on most of the reviews I have read on here, accom in Canberra looks overpriced and disappointing. Does anyone have any recommendations for a nights or two for 2A and 2children? Doesn't have to be self contained.

I suggest starting with wotif or need a room to see if there is anything left. with both the NGA Masterpieces exhibition and the National Folk Festival happening, Canberra is going to be packed out this weekend.

www.visitcanberra.com.au also has a long list of accommodation and you will just have to work through all their websites to see if there is any availability.

You might also try Queanbeyan

I wish you luck!

Another great place when travelling with kids is the Rydges Eaglehawk Resort - pool, tennis courts playground and room to run around. Not in the CBD but probably a lot better value than any of the hotels in the CBD. Unfortunately Canberra is not reknown for great accommodation of any kind.

Also - a lot of the suburban motels can be quite good at a much better prices than the CBD. Depends what you are going for and if you particularly have to be close by anything.
