I will start with the what I did not like, as we were tired we decided to eat in the restaurant and though it was a Saturday night the only option was a Buffet, Beef, Chicken & Fish, mixed vegetables, tossed salad and what was supposed to be Coleslaw. Everything was room temperature even though they were in warming dishes, the tossed salad had a jug with dressing to go with it and it was OK however the Coleslaw well it was like no other I have ever seen or made, the cabbage was sliced in huge pieces with virtually noting else added and definitely not a coleslaw Mayonnaise - there had been something put on it which had an oil base but could not detect a flavour and for what we paid it was a huge disappointment. Breakfast the next morning was a lot better.
Yes the rooms were a little tired but that is the worst you could say, they were very clean and very, very comfortable beds, the shower was good and all in all for the price I can't complain about the room. On the whole the grounds were quite nice with a well maintained swimming pool and tennis court.
Though other reviewers have said the staff were surly etc I did not find this so, they were pleasant and helpful.
You are only about 10 minutes from the centre of Canberra and all in all quite a nice stay.
