Staying in Canberra for the weekend and wanted to be close to Manuka. East is only a two min walk to the Manuka shops and restaurants. We booked a package that included accom in a one bedroom apartment plus dinner and breakfast which was only $10 per night more than the discounted room rate! We thought we'd eat at the hotel the first night and go out the second night, however dinner at OX restaurant was excellent so we went both nights. The meal consisted of seven delicious courses plus sides, so much food, we couldn't eat it all. Good wine list and great service. Breakfast was light continental and I especially liked the soft boiled "dippy" eggs. The only gripe I have is that there are two sittings for dinner at the restaurant (which we weren't made aware of when booking) and we were booked in for 6pm both nights without consultation. Luckily the restaurant agreed to change us to the 8pm sitting. All we had to pay for was our wine. The apartment was excellent, spacious and modern, I could live there. The king bed was firm but super comfy. Very well equipped kitchen and decent glassware. No bath but lovely bathroom. We liked it so much we booked a third night. Highly recommend.
