This is definitely NOT a 4 1/2 star hotel, and I don't know where they could possibly get the rating from.
Check-in and check-out was good, and the staff friendly.
The room I had was very small and not what I would expect from a 4 1/2 star hotel. The room was right on Jerrabomberra Avenue, and the noise from traffic on Jerra Avenue and Hindmarsh Drive was quite loud considering it is in an out of the way location.
The room on initial inspection, although out dated, looked clean, however before long I started to get an itchy throat and nose, which usually means it is dusty. On reflection, I think it must be the heavy curtains which contained the dust. I needed to take an anti-histamine to get me through the night, and I am not a regular taker of such things.
You will need a car to access this hotel, but in a reasonable location to reach most things in Canberra.
