Hello to anyone who is looking for accommodation for Floriade or for that matter at any time I would like to recommend the place I have just stayed in 2 weekends past. Nagee Prestige Apartments we stayed at the New Ascot Apartments. I usually go to Floriade about every 2 years and last time we stayed at Rydges Lakeside it is close enough to walk to the park but when we stayed two years ago it was in dire need of renovation but some had began at that time I thought it would be complete but to my amazement they have only just began to do the rooms now according to comments on tripadvisor so we gave them a wide berth and i began to look elsewhere.
I wanted an apartment style as we had our adult daughter with us i had sort of decided on one in Northbourne Ave but they where all around $380 to 390 per night for 2 bedrooms. The night I was going to book I stumbled across Nagee Apartments and when I clicked the site I was on I saw they have many Apartments in Canberra, The New Ascot Apartments is where we stayed was just behind Rydges in Marcus Clarke Ave we had seen it being built on our last visit it was only $240.
I can only say that it was fantastic it had two double bedrooms the main with ensuite walk in wardrobe and full floor to ceiling windows. The other double can be made to two singles is just across from the main bathroom. It has full kitchen with fab appliances, laundry in a little cupboard in the hallway and the lounge dining area is superb with leather lounge and dining suite and the same floor to ceiling windows as the bedrooms offering uninterrupted views of the lake and hills we were directly across from Parliament house barring the lake ofcourse fantastic. There was basement parking for two included in the cost something very necessary in Canberra as they are very user pay down there so this saved money also.
We could not be more happy with our trip. I'm sorry to say I would like to put a Review on but I can't as this company doesn't seem to have registered itself with Tripadvisor I looked and saw that you have to have someone on site at all times in the establishment to be included in there registration.
This sadly is the only gripe I have with the Nagee Prestige Apartment company as you have to go to Manuka to pickup and return the keys for the apartment. it was a bit of a bother when we first picked them up as we didn't know where we were going but the return was easy and we saw Manuka and there are great restaurants and shops there we ate at one Bambusa it was also great.
All in all we had a fab time in Canberra and this apartment was one of the highlights. I really recommend that you look up these apartments if ours was anything to go by I'm sure they would all be great some of the others even had pools and if I go back i would look at one of those weather permitting a swim.
