“Great service at affordable price!”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

Super friendly service, clean and comfy!
In a beautiful area, close to all amenities and tourist destinations
Room was nicely furnished, complimentary tea and coffee.
Air conditioner was already set and was at perfect temp when we walked through the door, perfect as it was freezing outside!

Nice and comfortable room, close to city center and parlement visible from the window. Interesting price regarding the localization and the quality of the room.
We would definitely choose this one again if we come around!

I have stayed here many times and it's my choice of hotel in Canberra. The standard of the room in relation to price is just too hard to beat.
My air conditioner was a little too noisy in the room I had this time.

We loved our stay! The staff was really friendly and we got a free upgrade too!
The room was clean and had enough towels for my family. The bathroom was spotless as well.
Buffet breakfast was good. Although, I think $19 was a bit too much. They presented it really nicely and coffee wasn't too bad either.
The location was very central. It was a good walk to Manuka and a quick drive to the lake.
All in all, we would stay here again if we do visit again.

Staff were very helpful and pleasant. The red brick exterior didn't bode well on arrival however we were pleasantly suprised by the interior as it was clean and spacious if a little dated. Beautiful location and quite too.

This hotel/apartments is one of Canberra's hidden gems -it's located in the very pretty and leafy suburb of Forrest and is very quiet, yet close to all that our capital has to offer. I've stayed here several times and it just keeps getting better and better! The family that owns it and the staff are just so welcoming and eager to assist the weary traveller. The beautiful restaurant has one of the nicest atmospheres - the attention to detail with the presentation of the buffet brekkie showed what thoughtful people work here. The accommodation itself is lovely - newly renovated, inside and out. But, the surprising thing is the value....contact the hotel direct and you'll see what I mean. And no, I have absolutely no affiliation with them....I don't even know their names! Over to you...

Very happy with the accommodation. Exactly what we needed at a much better price than elsewhere. Was out of the city centre so it was great to get around to places without going all the way into the centre.
