Besides being a little hard to find, once located we had a pleasant stay. We self catered using the facilities provided, and after 2 days wandering through the museums and up at 6am to see the balloon festival, we were glad to get back and relax on the balcong overlooking the park.
It provided exactly what we expected and can recommend it to fellow travellers for a pleasant stay.
What I would like to applaud is the honesty of the lady in reception who found my sapphire and diamond ring which I discovered was missing when I arrioved back in Sydney and after a frantic call to her, it was located under the table lamp in our room. It was posted back to me and has left me with fond memories of my stay in Canberra
