“Good location but a bit old”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Like most people reviewing the place, the apartments are large and comfortable. Our one-bedroom apartment was very decent. The furnishings were a bit old but the bed was decent. The place was clean and well-take care off. There is also plenty of secure parking which is nice.

The location is great though, and is a stones throw away from the Kingston shops, which is a great restaurant and bar area. If you wanted to venture further afield, you could easily walk to Manuka which has a range of great cafes and restaurants.

All in all, a decent place at a reasonable price for Canberra standards.

We had unit in block f so was ground floor so no major obstacle with accessibility.

Really roomy for a family group with full kitchen and bathroom plus ensuite in main.

Close to lots of restaurants & cafes + Coles is just up the street a bit.

However it is extremely noisy. There was a party or something upstairs on the Saturday night & was REALLY loud! In a general sense on the Friday night it wasn't too bad but you could hear front door slamming and heels being worn on tiled floor upstairs along with dragging out of dining chairs.

Not sure if I would bother staying again as there are so many places to stay in Canberra.

On our Internet booking we stated children ages and even though we had infant <1 the still gave us a rollaway bed rather than a cot, even though I rang the day before to confirm we would have a portacot (which we eventually got)

We stayed here over the Easter Weekend. Checked in on Good Friday afternoon. The apartment was lovely and big with two good size bedrooms a large lounge area and full kitchen and dining area. Lovely big balcony overlooking Eyre Street. The apartment was clean and airy with a separate laundry which had a full size washing machine and dryer also a clothes rack. The apartment we had had washing powder, dishing washing liquid and dishing washing power which was really appreciated. Beds were comfortable and plenty of pillows. These apartments are serviced on a Monday to Friday basis and not serviced on weekends or Public Holidays. We just washed the towels everyday and dried them in the dryer so that wasn't a problem. These apartments are a little older than some that we have stayed in and maybe some of the furniture may need updating they are clean and very comfortable. They are within walking distance of the restaurants at the Kingston shopping area and also Manuka shopping area. There is a little Aussie Rules Club within walking distance which has nice meals and very friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again when we are in Canberra. There is undercover carparking which is secure after 10.00p.m.

Room Tip: Apartments at the back maybe a little quieter rather than the one that face the street

I spent a night with my 3 daughters recently.....the 2 bedroom apartment was big with a good size balcony. The pool was a huge HIT !!. The finishes were a little dated and only 1 bathroom which was an issue with three girls (the dirty iron was annoying, but lucky I spotted it before I ironed my white shirt !!!!). BUT the location is amazing, 2 minute walk to Kingston shops which have a great selection of restaurants/bars plus only a 10min walk to Manuka.
I would def stay again if needed an apartment V's a hotel.

Easy to find and friendly staff. Close to restaurants and cafes. Apartment was big, light and clean. Had everything we needed for a weekend visiting galleries. Safe off street parking made this a great place to stay. Would definitely stay here again

I regularly stay here when visiting Canberra on business. The location is good - close to government buildings and the good restaurants of Kingston or Manuka. The 10 minute walk to the park or the lake makes a pleasant start to the day. It has a nice smallish swimming pool and a small tennis court. The staff are friendly. I've stayed in many different types of rooms there - on most occasions they have been quiet, apart from the one on the corner (traffic noise). All are spacious. The decor of some apartments is becoming a little worn, but I've stayed in worse around Canberra.
