The Clifton suites are a perfectly serviceable choice for extended business or holiday stays in Canberra. My wife and I stayed for a total of two weeks. The suites are well located, being close to major roads and bus transport as well as being within 3 blocks of Canberra Centre and the rest of the CBD. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and have most of the furniture and equipment required for an extended stay. The rooms are also serviced daily.
Newspapers are made available for guests and there are plenty of parking spaces in the basement. There is also a pool and a small gym in the building.
My only comments are that our apartment required a few more items to make our stay more comfortable. These included a coffee plunger (we ended up buying one), ceramic cooking dishes, a decent frypan (the one from apartment was poor quality and simply burned the food) and a clothes stand for drying the washing.
One other comment is that whilst there are 2 lifts, these are separated and at different ends of the building. This means that you effectively have only one lift at your end of the building servicing 8 floors of apartments. With extended stays, this means you spend a lot of time waiting for the lift even though you see the one in the distance, at the other end stopping at your floor. This is poor design and a 3rd lift should have been incorporated adjacent to one of the others (although too late now).
These comments aside, if you are looking for apartment accommodation on the northern side of Canberra, the Clifton Suites are a good choice.
