Reviewed March 6, 2013

Canberra suffers from a lack of nice hotels and unfortunately I am now adding the Pavilion to the mediocre list. The biggest frustration was the A/C system in the room which I was unable to turn off and was a frigid down draft on my bed all night. The bed was as tired as I was.

I recently travelled here for the Toulouse-Latrec exhbition and stayed in a one bedroom apartment with a friend. We were put in the Orchid Suite which was reasonably priced and very spacious. Our room was fully kitted out with all we needed for the one night and had a fantastic shower. Parking was secure (in a gated area) and easy to find and the staff were quick to respond to any requests. Comfy beds and nice to have so much space just for the two of us. Good location. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you can get a good deal on an apartment - do so! You can cook breakfast in the morning and save y...

We had to find a room for one night passing through, it was late and hard to find a room. Was costly for what we had.

The room was ok, all the way at the back of the property. It was comfortable and good parking.

On the downside the room felt a little cramped. The bathroom was narrow and did not vent the steam well making us wonder if we would set off any fire alarms.

Central location. Nothing fancy but nothing horrid either. Had a quiet room with all the basics. Staff were really friendly and added in breakfast for free.
Plenty of free car parking with security gate. Free newspaper each morning.
Handy spot for breakfast with a basic but nice selection.
Comfy beds but the pillows were horrible!
Yes I'd stay there again!

Stayed for 1 night & had a very enjoyable stay. The facilities were wonderfully fresh & clean, & the meals at the atrium resteraunt & buffet breafast were very good. Staff were professional without being stuffy. Will definitely be returning.

Stayed for 3 nights in Feb 2013 - was glad they had a pool however disappointed there were no sun lounges so my vision of lying by the pool with a book were unfulfilled. Just a quick dip and out, there was nothing but a kitchen chair to sit on and no shade or umbrellas.
Coffee in the atrium was undrinkable, the bed was so hard I had to request a mattress topper after the first sleepless night. Staff were, in the main, indifferent - with the exception of the very pleasant lady at the front desk. Bathroom was tiny and tired, functional but certainly not 4 star. The hotel is a bit tired and dated. There must be better hotels in Canberra for the price? Look around for them would be my recommendation.

Room Tip: A room at the back of the hotel away from noisy Northbourne Avenue is preferable
