I'll be upfront here and say this isn't our usual place - we watch our budget and this would normally be too expensive for us. But we saved for a special night out in Canberra, minus the kids, and gosh I'm glad we chose this place to stay at.
The apartments are just beautiful. King size bed. Mugs as well as cups. Coffee machine with pods provided. Room service. Really lovely furniture in the rooms - I wanted to take the bedroom armchair home with me! Great views over Canberra. Big bathrooms, nice strong shower. The toiletries were gorgeous, none of your run of the mill cheapie "conditioning shampoo".
The room was very quiet, no noise from next door or the corridor.
The service was absolutely perfect. Very welcoming, helpful and cheerful.
The bar staff were also terrific, the wine list was great with a good mix of local, foreign, reasonable and expensive wines. The one cocktail I had was absolutely delicious.
This is not where we'd stay if we travelled to Canberra all the time, just because it's not our usual market, but for a special, romantic night out - absolute bliss.
