Stayed in the Canberran building of the Blue & White Lodge. The building itself is quite old as were the furnishings in the room however all was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The ensuite must have been renovated at some point as it wasn't as old as the rest of the room and had a good size shower. Hosts were lovely and very helpful, rooms were serviced daily and breakfast very nice. Also good value for Canberra.
Location is handy and within walking distance of shopping centre and several restaurants and an easy drive to most of the city attractions. It is located on a major road so expect traffic noisy around peek hours.
Big problem we had was the noise from other guests but I suppose you should expect that at a lodge. People simply walking around in their rooms upstairs sounded like huge thuds to us in the downstairs room and there was an internal door in our room leading into the next room so we could hear every word the people next door were saying even though they were not speaking loudly. We heard what they were watching on tv and even heard them snoring so there isn't much privacy and we ended up whispering to talk as we knew if we could hear them they could hear us. Also made it hard to read quietly and sleep.
There are also only 4 car spaces around the back of the lodge and if there are more than 4 guests staying be prepared to park your car on the street if you don’t get in early enough at night to get one of the spots around the back.
Overall a nice enough clean room with lovely breakfast and friendly hosts and if you are a sound sleeper that can sleep through the sounds of other guests that sound like they are in the same room as you and don’t mind other guests being able to hear everything you say in your room than I would recommend staying here, but if you like your privacy and some quiet to sleep not a good idea.

located close to restaurants.
friendly staff and very helpful. They really look after you.

The only issue we had were the people in the next room, very noisy and could hear them walking up and down the stairs.

Rooms were spacious enough for 4 people and sportless.

As a B&B it is all you need unless you plan to sit in your room all day. Delightful staff, clean and very close to a plethora of eateries. Look, let's be fair, it is on the small side, a little old fashioned but it's all there and excellent value for being so close to Canberra central.

We have stayed at the Blue & White Lodge twice & now wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Canberra. Michael made us so welcome & our rooms have always been clean & comfortable. The tariff is very reasonable and the breakfasts, whether continental or cooked, are varied. Michael's speciality is scrambled eggs!! Also it is walking distance to Dickson & our favourite restaurant there!

The Blue and White Lodge is a lovely home away from home. My room was clean and had a safe, refrigerator, and a bathroom in the room. There was a balcony that looked toward the city and I had dinner there one night as the sun set. Michael, his sister and his aunt were interesting to talk to and they were knowledgeable about the area. There was a shopping center nearby with anything you could need, a grocery, post office, restaurants (even a Vegan one!) and a laundry mat. The bus stop was just a couple of minutes away and they ran frequently. Breakfast was lovely. Either cereal, fruit and yogurt or a full breakfast. I really enjoyed my stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.
