We had two nights in this hotel which is well situated to visit all the main sights in Canberra. Dickson is a self cotained suburb of Canberra about 10-15 minutes driving time from the main sights. Unusually for a capital city, there is plenty of parking in the centre of Canberra and the vast majority of it is free, traffic is also light so there is no incentive not to bring your vehicle. The hotel is situated on a small side street which is usually quiet and we booked a 1 bedroom unit with ensuite bathroom (which contained a washing machine), seperate lounge and well equipped kitchen (off the living room). The room was well prepared, clean and aired. There were nice attentions to detail such as complimentary washing powder for the first wash and bottles of mineral water. There is plenty of on site parking, most of it in a basement garage which has a lift to all floors and which is secured over night. The only negative point would be that the furniture in the lounge was quite heavy and dark coloured and there was not a lot of natural daylight in our lounge so it all appeared a little dark. As the title states this is no longer a Best Western but it is still a good hotel and well situated . I would stay there again should I wish to visit Canberra.
