Central location

Posted 01-Sep-2014
Pros: Central location.
Cons: Water pressure in shower.
Location: A short drive to Parliament House, Australian War Memorial, Manuka Stadium and Lake Burley Griffin. Walking distance to quite a few restaurants.
Not a place for an extended family holiday, but for a short stay in Canberra it's fine. Centrally located in walking distance to restaurants and a short drive to many attractions, like Parliament House and the War Memorial. Rooms are pretty basic, but clean and comfortable, double bed was a bit on the small side for two adults, especially if you are accustomed to a Queen or King sized. Free 500mb of Wifi was handy and a decent TV. Water pressure in the shower was lacking a bit, but overall this place is fine. You get what you pay for and given the price, I'd probably stay there again.

A solid mid price hotel

Posted 31-May-2014 on Hotels.com
Stayed here in order to attend an event in Canberra over three days. A good solid place to sleep at night, however not really modern or much above basic room and tv. Great location - easy walking to Manuka shops and restaurants, and the staff were friendly and helpful.

A bit dated

The Hotel was comfortable and cheap but very much in need of an overhaul. It was probably quite nice back in the 70s.

Very nice comfortable Stay, Close to everything

Posted 12-May-2014
Pros: The Hotel was centered good, close to everything.
Cons: I would place a microwave in the smaller rooms as well especially for those nights we arrive late to heat up some soup.
Location: Maklin Place Sport Fields are close by as well as shopping centre. Then of couse the old and new Parliament Houses. The art gallery and the city.
Thank you our stay was wonderfull, friendly and helpfull staff. We were only there for a sports event but will definately stay here again on our next visit to do the sight seeing family holiday.
