“Comfortable value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

We recently stayed here as a family. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff friendly and the convenience to the near by shops were a bonus.

We stayed here for 1 night in March 2012 while our house was being renovated.

I didn't expect much for $130 but was hoping it was clean. Thankfully it was clean. The bathroom looked like it had been recently refurnished and was quite acceptable.

The furniture is what you would expect of a cheaper hotel - outdated and not that comfertable. Beds could use updating (could feel springs etc).

It did have a slightly musty smell to it,but an open window dealt with most of that.

Quite acceptable if looking for cheap accomodation (not my normal standard when holidaying).

If we had been in a position to inspect first, we would have made an offer of $60 for night, in desperation. As it was, we (wife and I) were charged $190 for a "double room" - as the last available room - and found ourselves in a dingy, dirty setting, Television not working and unable to be fixed by night manager, lounge chair with wet greenish "blob" that the manager apologised for, turned cushion over and said he "would write up in the book" (didn't seem surprised by things, and suggested we make our criticisms known strongly in the morning), lounge would not have been accepted by St Vinnies - dirty and ragged, shampoo sachet opened/used and left for next unfortunate traveller, garbage bag emptied and left in middle of floor, no milk - longlife or fresh. Torn carpet to trip up in the dark. Never again. Sleeping in the street would be cleaner.

I was forced to stay here as a result of a last minute requirement to be in Canberra; Parliament was sitting and there was just no other option. Where to start...
The room is dark, dank and smells;
Lightbulbs that don't work;
Blinds that don't close properly;
A shower that is so 1970s it has a curtain (dirty) rather than a shower door;
The room stinks of smoke even though it is "Non-smoking".
A half-ironing board (really? in 2011?);
A Tv screen that is smaller than my laptop;
Dial-up interet access, and only limited wireless access;
No change of towels, replacement of soap and shampoo, nor replacement of used coffee sachets.
Seriously - if you have to stay here, delay your trip, or bring a tent and find a nice paddock. This place should be bull-dozed and rebuilt.

Room Tip: Choose a room in a different hotel.

I stayed a couple of nights, there wasn't any other option as parliament was sitting.
The room was dingy, which made the nicotine coloured walls even more unpalatable.
The bedspread was dirty and the non-smoking room stunk of cigarettes.
Don't confuse this Belconnen hotel with the other Premier Inn, which is much more modern and clean.

I was booked here for 3 nights at a cost of $465. This is far more than a motel room in this type of location is worth, but it seems to be the reality of "sitting week" in Canberra that they can charge these rates.

On the positive side, my room was spacious, generally clean and reasonably comfortable, there was free wi-fi which worked more than half the time, and everything I tried worked (except the phone). The bathroom was fresh, basic amenities provided, and the towels were particularly good.

However the room smelt of years of industrial cleaning products trying to mask an overall staleness - probably from the ancient carpet (which had a hole in it). I overcame this by leaving the window partly open, despite overnight low temperatures of around 0ºC.

Lighting was poor - two wall lights were fitted with "daylight" fluorescent bulbs, which provided a strange blue-ish light that was insufficient to illuminate the further reaches of the room, and made ironing on the little table-top ironing board provided rather difficult.

The motel has a restaurant, but it was not operational - breakfast was available to take to the room in a paper bag.

The lift was old, slow and noisy - avoid the rooms next to it. I wouldn't normally use the lift for 2 floors, but the stairwell was unlit when I checked it out so stairs weren't really an option.

Reception was attended from 7am until an unspecified time (understood to be about 2am), but if you required assistance to access the building at other times there was a $50 charge.

Although the motel is located in a shopping centre, it is only a small suburban centre (not the main Belconnen shops), and the only stores open when I arrived were a liquor store and a KFC. This is a long way from anything and public transport is very limited - I was really glad I had hired a car and I would not recommend staying here without one.

In short, this is an ordinary motel deep in the suburbs and while my room was OK, it was seriously overpriced. So the sign on the back of the door asking guests to assist with straightening the beds "to enable us to continue with reduced rates" did make me laugh...

The location is very good with adjourning shops and Club facilities at front of the complex. Parking was excellent. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The apartments were old but clean. Everything one needed was there. The place was very quiet.
