Convenient location

Posted 22-Jul-2015
Pros: Convenient location to Manuka village and central to tourist attractions. The hotel is clean and well equipped and affordable.
Cons: A community room where people can use microwave facilities, with tea coffee machine, or simply relax on a lounge.
Location: Manuka village with its trendy shops and cafes is a short walk, perfect place for breakfast, lunch and dinners. Central to many attractions by car.
We were looking for an affordable place, close to tourist hotspots, viewing the hotel, reading the reviews and seeing the photos on Expedia, helped to confirm our decision to stay here. The hotel offered free cancellation up to a certain date which planning well in advance is a reassurance. A great place to stay,, well recommended. Thanks Expedia and thank you Forrest Hotel. You made our trip all the more memorable.

Beds too hard, too noisy

Posted 24-May-2015
Pros: Cleanliness.
While there are functional and clean rooms I will not stay here again. The beds are like boards and the rooms have very little in terms of noise dampening. Conversations in the next room could be heard and as the motel is only a few minutes walk from a restaurant and bar area the stream of returning revellers were easily heard.....and my stay was mid-week.

Good value near centre of Canberra

Posted 18-May-2015
This was perfect for what we wanted - easy access to museums and galleries. Reception staff were friendly and check in and out were painless. Plenty of tea and coffee, replenished daily.

Hotel in the centre of Canberra

Posted 07-May-2015
Close to everything in Canberra. Relatively quiet street and nice view on the autumn park. Good air cond. in the room. Friendly staff. Free parking space. Budget accommodation. A microwave oven in the room would be nice. A 10-15 min walk to a choice of restaurants and shopping.

Good for a brief overnight stop.

Posted 20-Apr-2015 on Wotif
Check in was efficient and friendly with good instructions to find our room. Room very clean and everything in good condition apart from the hand basin mixer tap which was hard to adjust and turn off. Everything appeared freshly painted, but the room was small with minimum furniture (no space for a chair to watch TV). The bathroom was very small and cramped. Hot water was good. Room was quiet. An added bonus was being able to park at the door.
