“Mark is pretty darn great!”
Reviewed May 11, 2011

I came to Canberra for a job interview and brought the whole family so we could have a mini vacay to see the Brumbies, war memorial, etc. We found the Miranda Lodge in the evening. I have to say from the first moment Mark and his lovely wife were had the best customer service from anywhere I have stayed. Might I add that in a formal life I was a freelance photographer and have traveled all over the world staying and all kinds of places. The room was very functional for my young children. It was very quiet, even though the place was full. Breakfast was great. We liked it so much we decided to stay an extra night. Thank you Mark! We truly had fun in Canberra and you were part of that! P.S. It is very close to the shops and nice places to eat. We didn't have to wander too far for dinner. Bonus!

Although the Miranda Lodge is in need of a bit of maintenance, I found this B & B to have a good sized room, clean good sized bathroom, big TV and mini fridge etc. The staff were very friendly and nice and the cooked breakfast (choice of bacon, eggs, sausages, toast, cereal, tea, coffee, juice etc.) to be a really great start to the day. As I said it needs a little maintenance, but the rooms, staff and breakfast make up for it!

Technically there was nothing technically wrong with the Miranda Lodge. However the entire place needed a good cleaning and painting. The particle board furniture in our room looked like it had seen better days -- several years ago. The breakfast provided consisted of toast, a couple varieties cereal and canned peaches. Overall I felt like I was staying at a sleazy highway hotel.

The owner Mark was very nice and informative but his requirement of payment at check-in made his establishment feel low class.

We had an international sporting event we wanted to see in Canberra on a cold saturday night. Internet researcg found Miranda Lodge in the area that we wanted, Downer. Close to the AIS. I booked by phone and found the owner manager, Mark very ageeable. The price given was the discounted amount. Upon arrival Mark was there and a very nice host, he supplied all relevevant information on our stay and also offered local information on things to do ect. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Also a must in the cold Canberra winter the room was warm via its central heating. The cooked breakfast was supplied as part of the overnight tariff. It was cooked on order and a very pleasant start to the day. I would stay here again without a second thought. It also provided free wireless internet.
