“Lovely”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Our family just spend 3 nights here in January 2013. The room was lovely for a family, beds were very comfortable, soft pillows and the bathroom was great. Max, the host was very helpful, suggesting wonderful local restaurants down the road for dinner as well. The fully cooked breakfast was delicious and cooked just for you, immediately when you arrived in the dining room. Thanks so much for the lovely time. The vegetable garden out the back was very homely as well.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our three day holiday in Jan 2013 at Milanda Lodge in Downer ACT.
Mark and his wife (Hosts) were very friendly and eager to please us.
It was a pleasure to stay at this lodge and is in a good location to access Canberras attractions.
Would recommend to anyone, looking for alace to stay while visiting Canberra
Well Done!!

We booked this for a couple of nights to allow us to visit the highlights of Canberra. We had a very warm welcome from Mark who read my thoughts and thrust a cold beer in my hand immediately. This is a purpose-built guest house and as such does lack some of the charm of some of the other houses we visited. However in other respects it could not be faulted - good breakfast, comfortable beds and convenient location and all at a perfectly reasonable price. We have no hesitation in recommending thi house to other tourists.

Despite the fact that this is a small B&B and its outdated furnishings, this place is a little gem. My room on the top level facing the street was big, with a desk and 2 tub chairs. I saw a room downstairs and it was smaller in size. Even though it faced Northbourne Ave, it was not noisy. Parking available on site or on the street.

There were enough storage space, extra pillows and blankets, enough hooks in the bathroom, working side table lamps and power points. Iron, ironing board and hairdryer were in the room
.
The breakfast was not fancy, 3 types of cereals, help yourself to the toast and a choice of fried or poached eggs, with bacon, sausages, baked beans & spaghetti. It was enough to sustain you for the morning.

For the price, it had a very clean room and nice shower. Only 1 towel per person provided, no hand towels and cheap soap and sachet of shampoo.

Good value for the price.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st floor seemed to be bigger. Or if you really want a quiet room, ask for the back roo...

A great conveniently located hotel. The room was spacious and equipped by everything including ironing board. Very clean. Included hot breakfast is excellent.
The hotel is family run and well maintained and clean. Mark, the owner is friendly, welcoming and very helpful.
The bus stop is in fount of the hotel so it is easy to commute. There are a lot of restaurants and supermarkets in five minutes work. Despite the hotel closed to road there is no noise. Even more in the back of the hotel you could see possums around midnight. Do not forget some bread for them.
Free Wifi is available

Room Tip: Ask a quiet room on the back of the hotel.

I stayed at Miranda lodge with my husband and a friend for one night when visiting Canberra for a concert. It was the best value accommodation I could find and I was very pleased with our stay. Rooms were clean and tidy and the manager was very friendly and served up a good breakfast. Also enjoyed my cuddles with Bebe, the resident persian cat. Adorable!

When I came home and was telling my parents about the lodge, I discovered that they have also stayed there numerous times. Seems like it's the accommodation choice for my family in the nation's capital.

We found Miranda Lodge to be extremely good value,in an otherwise expensive area.
Our hosts could not have been more accommodating,great breakfast.Very clean and terrific value for money.
