My family just stayed at the Forrest Hotel & Apartments. Had heard good reviews for the hotel & at $189 per night was looking forward to staying. The staff at Reception were lovely & the location was great. Sadly, the same could not be said for the apartment. Worst bed & pillows ever - I regret not taking my pillow from home. The bathroom was so small - the door opened outwards; when you sat on the toilet, your head was 2 inches away from the glass shower door; the sink was so tiny & jammed into the corner of the wall & the shower that you could barely fit to brush your teeth & there was mould on the sink & mould spots on the tiles & ants were a common find in the bathroom as well - especially around our toothbrushes! The toaster burnt the toast even when on the lowest setting & the powerpoints were a worry to use with the face plate missing on one of them & a dodgy switch on another. I was looking forward to enjoying our time in Canberra & we did, however, we will never recommend Forrest Hotel & Apartments to anyone wanting to stay in the apartments...
