“Great location - friendly staff - accommodation a little tired”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Went in Term 1 Holidays (Autumn) with my 2 young boys. The location is great - very central - and near local shops. Reception Staff friendly and very accommodating... we arrived early and was able to check in as our room was ready.

We had the two bed apartment on the top floor - so we had lots of sun and space - including bedrooms. Large kitchen and mostly new equipment. Although one of the rings was not working.

Included TV in living and Master bed room - nice - mini stereo, DVD and video players.

Rooms were in ok condition. A little bit dirty - not vacuumed properly. External doors paintwork was chipped and tired - a pity as it detracted from the property.

Otherwise, not a lot else to complain. Since the weather was not too hot or cold, we did not really test out the heating or cooling - as this seems to be a recurring complaint about the Apartments.

We enjoyed the Apartments - although I think we paid a little more than it was worth.

We would be happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: Top floor apartments have back and front door so nicely ventilated and lots of light.

All modern conveniences. Since last stay new air-conditioning has been installed which now makes these apartments first class. Excellent location, friendly staff, cleanliness first class, very comfortable.

We would certainly stay again.

Room Tip: 2 minutes to Canberra's top restaurants, Cinemas and shopping centre. Few minutes drive to Parli...

We stayed over the weekend in a top floor 2 bedroom apartment.
The apartment looked recently refurbished and was well equipped.
It was quiet and was well occupied at the time.
We would stay again. Close to Manuka restaurants, shops and the Kingston Hotel.
We enjoyed our stay.

We have stayed at the Manuka Apartments on a number of occasions in winter and have always enjoyed the apartments as they are well presented and close to many of Canberra's main attractions and good eating places. Unfortunately our most recent visit was in summer and the air conditioning was very poor which resulted in a very poor night's sleep.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Arrived on a hot evening which is typical of Canberra in summer. The living room temperature was ok but the old air con unit was as noisy as a jumbo jet. The 2 bedrooms were very hot with no cool air reaching them. I went to check the air con thermostat but a sticker next to it 'thermostat disconnected'. About 9pm the old unit gave in & was blowing warm air out. I rang reception & the helpful staff member investigated & told me 20 minutes later the boiler that ran the 'air con' had overheated & turned off. She fixed this & brought a portable evaporative cooler for the bedroom but the combined noise of the 2 units resulted in no sleep that night.
I tried opening the window but the noise from the 2 pubs across the street was very loud. Given that they had portable cooling units on hand & there was a pedestal fan in the cupboard, tells me this is a common complaint & they should not be advertised as being air conditioned - honesty is the best policy so that customers expectations are met. You can book much better places in Canberra for the price charged here.

Room Tip: Definitely not one on the top floor as extra hot & 3 flights stairs to carry luggage up, no lift

only stayed one night in two bedroom apartment for a day at the cricket. Fantastic location, oval itself just across the road and good food and pubs almost as close. Apartment was clean and well laid out and pool was great, especially during a hot day. Thought it might of been noisy but this was not the case with each apartment having its own sense of privacy. Okay, aircon a little noisy but not a big deal at all, will definitely consider staying again next time we visit for sport.

we stayed here for 3 nights, these apartments are probably on the very tired side of life though very clean. they are in a fantastic spot close to everything, and the Kingston cafes etc are great, especially after a hot busy day.
not sure if the air conditioning was working 100% or whether it just could nt cope with the heat. we found the aparment got very hot especially the bedroom.
the only issue we had was I burnt myself on the hot water in the bathroom, I have never had such hot water before, had it been a child it could have been very dangerous, it was so hot my hand was sore even after using ice.

Room Tip: these apartments are on multi levels no lift so difficult if you have heavy or a lot of luggage. be...
