Excellent service

Posted 15-Feb-2015
Pros: Friendly family hotel, clean and efficient.
Cons: The hotel is somewhat isolated, so the highly restrictive opening hours of the hotel kitchen were surprising.
Location: Lots of things within a short bus ride (which you grab from nearby Manuka). It is out of the city, but Canberra is so spread out it barely matters.
I enjoyed my stay, although some of the noise management around the hotel was a bit rough. For example, having groundsmen start blowers at 730am is a bit rough! The hotel is not very central but is reasonably well-placed for Public TRansport. The staff didn't know about PT though, and I had to find out for myself - this would be a useful area for them to upskill in. Having the laundry open a little later at night would be great for busy travellers, and also because the dryers don't work quickly as such.

Small rooms with poor bedding.

Posted 27-Jan-2015
Pros: The staff.
Cons: Sound proof the room. Comfortable pillows and beds.
Location: Great location. Not far from parliment house.
This motel looks nicer and larger in the photo's. The rooms are tiny and cramped and it is very dated. The walls are thin and we can everything in the rooms around us. People smoke outside the rooms and the smoke drifts into the bathroom through the slightly open windows. The reasturant was not open in the evenings and I did not realise it was open for breakfast until the last day when I saw the sign outside in the drive way. The double bed sunk in the middle and was very uncomfortable. I could not fault either the staff or the cleaners because they were very helpful.

Great value family apartments heaps of room

Posted 25-Dec-2014
Pros: Close to everything, friendly staff, spacious well equipped rooms and second bedroom space for two big boys.
Cons: We couldn't think of anythong
Location: Parliament House is walking distance, Manaka oval and shops, Kingston restaurants
I booked a serviced apartment for my self, husband and two sons 17 and 20 on the way to family xmas. Best 3.5 star - heaps of room proper kitchen and fridge, boys bedroom spacious. Hot Breakfast buffet bright generous great value. Clever marquee so we ate semi outside in park-like surrounds. Outside balcony gave us more options for boys to watch TV while we had a nightcap outside.

Great location & well priced

Posted 23-Nov-2014
Pros: Forrest is full of tree lined streets, yet close to Parliament House and the city
Location: Outlook across the road to the park with lots of trees is refreshing. Regular week-day bus service to city and Woden
Good quiet location, close to the city, comfortable bed and good sized room with cooking facilities, bathroom while a little small was clean and usable, staff friendly & helpful, good inexpensive restaurant with lovely park view. Well priced and happy to return.

Find et andet sted!

Posted 16-Nov-2014 on Hotels.com
Dette værelse blev booket, efter at anmeldelserne på hotels.com var blevet gennemlæst, da disse var rigtig gode. Jeg tror dog ikke, at folk, der har anmeldt stedet, har været det samme sted som mig... Til at starte med kan jeg sige, at dette ikke har noget med hotel and apartments at gøre, da der er tale om er motel. Når man nævner stedet for de lokale i Canberra, siger de også motel. Der er ikke særlig meget godt at sige om værelset, da det var mega klamt. Der var ikke gjort ordentlig rent, og alle ting i rummet bar tydelig præg af, at det havde været brugt i 15 år for længe. Malingen skallede af flere steder på både vægge og døre, og der var bare klamt. Der var rigtig lydt, så når en bil startede på parkeringspladsen lød det som om, at man stod lige ved siden af den. Vil kraftigt anbefale, at man finder et andet hotel (f.eks. i deres finansdistrikt), hvor der sker lidt mere. Der er nemlig meget dødt i motellets område om aftenen. Dette motel blev primært booket pga. beliggenhed (ligger tæt på parlamentet), men det virker ikke som om, at man går så meget rundt i Canberra, da man kommer meget let rundt i bil. Jeg vil aldrig vælge dette hotel igen, hvis jeg kommer til Canberra igen.

Basic accommodation, you get what you pay for!

Posted 06-Nov-2014
Pros: It's cheap
Cons: Room could be bigger. Also when you open bathroom door it slams right into shower. It's all a bit cramped.
All good, no dramas, no frills, good location. There is really nothing else to say and i hate the fact that this system is asking me to write more and won't share the review unless I have so I am just making up words to make the system happy.

Underwhelmed and overpriced.

Posted 27-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
I won't be staying again. How you can class this as either hotel or apartmfnts is beyond me. The addition of a yoadyer to the kettle doesnt mske it an apartment. Abd tge style if the rooms is a cramped Motel. Grout in bathrooms missing, place beeds a repaint, the BBQ facilities are outside of motel complex, and youre given no equipment or cleaning products despite being listed as a facility. The towels/milk/coffee/biscuits are a one time drop off only, and i was there 3 days.
