“Surprised!”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

I only stayed here one night between flights home. It was a rushed booking and i hadn't done much research on the hotel. On the way I checked tripadvisor and the reviews were all fairly poor which had my sister and i worried. However, upon arrival the hotel had a beautiful lobby, staff with great customer service and great food from room service!

Stayed in the Domion Suite - quiet and excellent accommodation. Well appointed bathroom and bed a luxury to sleep in. The suite had a small kitchen, only issue is not enough forks and one of the frypans was dirty.
The wooden venetians also need a little updating as some did not allow any adjustment.
Breakfast was included - the food was excellent and very filling.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large though the lower floor may be a little too close to the Bar on ground floor...

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights, the room was huge but a little bit dated, there is a strange sink in the lounge room (suppose to be a kitchenette?), there was no toaster or free biscuits :( I think to encourage you to order room service or eat at the restaurant.
Bathroom was huuuuggeee.
The buffet breakfast was substantial, but the poached eggs were abit hit and miss.
Staff were lovely.
Wifi was not strong in our room.
Overall a nice hotel.

Stayed here overnight, and whilst the hotel did seem a bit dated, it wasn't trying to be anything it's not. It's a decent hotel with good rooms and service, and obviously a good location. However, as mentioned, it's nothing to rave about. Stay because it's consistent, but that's about it.

We stayed here twice in 3 weeks. Both times the service and staff were very pleasant and cooperative. We stayed here 12 months ago and my report on the food was quite negative, but it can honestly say that in July 2014, the food was perfect. The rooms are big ( but a little dated) and everything was clean and worked well.

The ladies at the front desk were fantastic! The really accommodated my 6yo daughter. The rooms were very spacious and modern. The bathroom was dated but we tend not to spend too much time in there. The food was good. Staying there broke up the trip to the snow.

First impressions - Fabulous, we were greeted by "Georgie" who was very experienced at her job and helped us breeze through check in.
Around the hotel - Every staff member we me were very friendly and professional. This hotel is very spacious, has fast wireless internet for free, a pool a Gym and a great bar with fabulous happy hour from 5.00pm. The bar has great little lounge areas, big screen tv's and often has live entertainment.
The Room - The room we had on the 3rd floor was very clean, spacious and the bed was AMAZING.
Location - Walking distance to Restaurants and shops in beautiful Manuka. 5 mins to Parliament House, War Memorial and National Galleries.
We had a great stay for 3 nights and could not fault the hotel or staff. Thanks guys, full marks.
