Stayed at the Breakfree again, another good experience, other than they were doing service work on the lift over the ANZAC long weekend, not sure that was a good idea.

We stayed on the 12 floor and the view are great the room was clean and in good order.

Room Tip: Aks for one of the lake side room on any floor above about 6

We stayed in a 12th floor apartment overlooking the lake with Parliament House in the distance. Great views! A very comfortable two bedroom two bathroom apartment! The autumn leaves were just beginning to fall but it was not too cold to explore the new Acton development. Very handy location and good service. We did leave a small list of required repairs for the owner of the apartment, but none of these small problems spoilt our very pleasant 4 night stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you request a lake view apartment

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with my wife and two children.
The apartment was completely adequate and had everything we needed.
Great views over Canberra.
The apartment looked a little bruised but if this were an apple you would probably still eat it.
If I was coming back to Canberra I would look to stay here again as the price was right!

What a shame! Right on the edge of the Parliamentary Triangle, close to the good restauants a shopping of Civic but spoiled by a lack of simple updates to the apartments and an obsession with rules...a book full of them in every apartment and more plastering the public area walls. The penny pinching attitudes included details like:
* not having enough keys for our party of four in the three bedroom apartment. ,
* not enough reading lights or power points.and
* insipid decor and time worn paintwork.

Although ideally placed for cycle touring, the towers is bike hostile: for example you are banned not only from taking your bike to the safety of your apartment but you are forbidden from refilling your waterbottle from the cooler in the foyer.
Wifi or Internet? What's that. Well you could buy one of our newspapers.
Gym? Only after seven am and before ten pm with another key.
Pool? Well, it will have to be uncovered.
We had the constant feeling that we were an imposition, that we were being blamed for wear and tear to their precious building.
On the positive side, the staff, when they appeared after seven in the morning were very helpful.
