We stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the top floor. Secure basement parking, fairly nice unit with kitchen and laundry facilities and a corner spa.There is also a small north facing courtyard that doesnt have any views.

The worst thing though is if you are on the top floor, there is no lift, only stairs. So if you come from your car in the basement, you have to walk up a total of 7 flights of stairs! It doesn't sound like much, but when you have to do it several times with luggage, it is not much fun. If you are on the top floor, make sure that you are fairly fit,or happy to have a workout every time you return from your car.

Stayed: September 2012, traveled with family

Anyone familiar with Canberra knows the hotel prices vary depending on whether Parliament is sitting.
If you are flexbile with dates and times, I'd always suggest visiting in times other than sitting days - this will give better options for both flight and hotel costs
The Bentley is always a good option if you don't need the style and design of a couple of the newer hotels or the older world charn of the Hyatt.
It is normally excellent value particularly if you need a 2 bedroom apartment and it is close to Manuka and most attractions.
It normally satisfies most needs and is spacious with most amenities you would needd.

We recently stayed at the Bentley Suites in Canberra in a 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor. As there are no lifts, the four flights of stairs gave me a great workout (especially with luggage and food for the kitchen). Our apartment was great with 2 bathroom, but I was left disappointed with the overall cleanliness. The grill was filthy, the cutlery, plates etc all needed re-washing; the dishwasher didn't clean the dishes and attention to detail was missing. It is located in a very convenient location, walking distance to Manuka but for $280.00 per night, I expected a higher standard.

Room Tip: chose a room ground level on the northern side.

On a cold Canberra afternoon we arrived at the Bentley Suites just a short walk from Manuka with great restaurants and shopping.

We had organized a two bedroom apartment as my BIL was staying with us and we all found the apartment to be spacious, clean and comfortable .

We also were given an apartment which did not front onto Canberrra Avenue and therefore not subject to road noise.

It was a short walk to Manuka where once again we enjoyed a meal at Saffron.

The price for the apartment was execellent in particular compared with where we usually stay at either Aria or Clifton Suites, infact they were over $100 more expensive.

would happily recommend the bentley Suites based on our stay.

The apartments are fairly easy to locate. They can be a little overpriced considering their state but that may relate to a fairly late booking and a major sporting event on the same weekend.

We stayed on a Saturday night and were pleasantly surprised when we saw the size of the apartment. The room we stayed in had 2 bedrooms (one with an ensuite) and a separate bathroom. The main bathroom was adorned with the malfunctioning fan but aside from that was adequate. We also had a balcony but unfortunately it was on the busy Canberra Ave so you would keep the door closed for most of the time.

The lounge area is homely and the apartments are definitely a place that you can enjoy for a few days. Parking is underground which adds to safety.

These apartments are a suitable base to visit the attractions of Canberra. You also have the option of staying in. I would recommend them but price is the only factor as we paid $270 for a Saturday night.

We have stayed here before over the years, but they are badly in need of refurbishment. Walked in to a cockroach in lounge, hairs in bathroom and sticky kitchen floor. Booked this because two en-suites and full kitchen as staying with Mum and Dad.
The location is good and parking no extra.Also a laundry which is good if staying for a few days.
They need to get some good maintenance as taps dripping and bins and kettle need replacing badly, and cleaning is questionable.
We paid over $510 for two nights which is about average in price. We asked for an apartment on ground floor so perhaps this impacted on the quality. Managment need to make some cosmetic changes urgently.

We had a two bedroom, two bathroom suite which was perfect - very large living area and full kitchen and good sized bathrooms. It was easy to find and very close to Kingston and Manuka village shops (Manuka has much better shops and restaurants). There's undercover parking and a fully equipped laundry. I especially appreciated that there was absolutely everything provided that you could need, from toiletries and tea and coffee to dishwashing and laundry detergent. Not all serviced apartments have this level of attention.

A few minor things about our stay - the access key cards are easily wiped if stored next to your mobile phone. The air conditioning/heating unit is only in the living area so the bedrooms were quite cold but there were extra quilts in the wardrobe.

Overall though, it was a great place and I would definitely stay here again. Reception was very friendly and helpful!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, request a suite with the bedrooms facing away from Canberra Ave.
