My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Forrest Hotel in March. We paid $145 per night for the privilege. The room was adequate for our needs but it was starting to show its age in general wear and tear. The bathroom was "compact" to say the least. On the positive side it has a great location. The Manuka restaurant area is only a 10 minute walk away and it is only a 3 minute drive to the parliament section of Canberra----National Gallery of Art, The High Court, Archives Musuem, old and new parliament house etc. The room had a double door access to the adjacent room-- my unlocked door opened easily so I assume so does the other.-- security could be an issue.
Would stay there again but only for central location.
