Stayed for two nights over Xmas, while visiting family, in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment. The location is good - only a short walk from Civic. The rooms were a good size, clean and quite well (if simply) furnished. Basic toiletries in the bathroom. Ample supply of towels etc. Has a surprisingly nice pool. The lifts are inadequate for such a large complex - they got very busy especially when people were checking out. I would stay there again.

Was most impressed with the 2 bedroom apartment (was upgraded from 1 bedroom). Absolutely spotless & comfortable, with good size balcony. Car park was easy to access & free parking is always a big bonus. A very short walk to coffee shops, cafes, hotel & bottle shops & walking distance to city centre. Only problem I found was desk lamp didn't work.

Our kids were so looking forward to a swim as soon as we arrived and we were not disappointed when our room was closest to the pool. Plenty of room space for us adults and three kids, cooked ourselves with more then enough kitchen equipment. Well recommended and we will be back.

The apartments are well located, close to the city centre on busy Northbourne Avenue.
The 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in was quite a good size, reasonably but unimaginatively furnished and adequately equipped with kitchen equipment. Linen was of good quality.
The tariff is not cheap and for this price it is very disappointing that there is air conditioning only in the living areas and not in the bedrooms. With the window open in the bedrooms on a warm night, the noise from Northbourne Avenue traffic was quite loud.
We hired a fold away bed and were charged a massive $45 extra for the privilege!

Clifton Suites is an overpriced dump - pricing is for a 5 star hotel but construction standard and service is equivalent to a 1 star motel.

To get between the room we were allocated, in the rear portion of the building, and reception required us going through the carpark. To get back into our room from outside required us to come in through the carpark entry doors and duck cars coming and going.

Whilst our 1 bedroom suite was quite large it had only one air-conditioning outlet in the sitting area and had NO air conditioning outlet in the separate bedroom - totally inappropriate for Canberra where it can be very hot in summer and freezing in winter.

Room Tip: Stay in another hotel - anyone booking into this hotel is an idiot.

Walking distance to Central Canberra. Great service and rooms and everything supplied. Prepaid "Quickbeds" cost $95 more than booking with hotel direct !! They gave us a room upgrade to compensate Thanx

Have stayed here before - mainly chose it because of the location and because it has a pool.
The rooms are fairly bland, but comfortable. They have full cooking facilities, and in fact we had to move from the room we had originally booked because it reeked of cooking odours, but this was fine with us, as we were relocated to a superior room.
No complaints, really. I wouldn't choose it for a romantic weekend, but fine for a family trip.
