Nice hotel close to the city

Posted 06-Apr-2015
The staff are fabulous, full of information and willing to help. Room was clean and tidy. The only down side was the lack of insulation, could hear everything that went on around the room which led to a bad sleep.

Close to the city

Posted 05-Apr-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Asked everyone to respect other Guest and keep the noise down.
The room we got did not look like any of the photos we had seen. I think we got the oldest room clean but look like a motel from the 60s. VERY NOISY STAFF AND OTHER GUEST

great location, well appointed

Posted 26-Mar-2015
Pros: location, value, service
Cons: It's a fairly routine pleasant hotel room, perhaps a few more stylish touches.
Location: near the embassies and parlaiment house, 10 minutes from ANU by car.
I neede a one-night stop-over preferably close to parliament house so this was very well placed, very easy to get to various places I wanted to go to, by car. There is a restaurant, also offering breakfast, which I didnt use but glad to have it available. Reception lady was very cheerful and friendly.

Good position but my room was basic.

Posted 18-Mar-2015
Pros: Close to local cafes and restaurants.
Cons: Fittings seemed cheap.
Location: Great local cafes and easy drive to the major buildings in the Parliamentary triangle.
The hotel was full - it's in a good position. I looked in a room overlooking the park and it looked very pleasant but I had a pokey upstairs room for 2 adults with a cheap cupboard perched on the top of a bench. The shower recess was the smallest I've ever seen. I wouldn't go there again.

A great, good value place to stay in Canberra

Posted 12-Mar-2015
We have stayed at Forrest Inn on our last four trips to Canberra and have always been impressed by the friendly, courteous staff and the good value accommodation. On our most recent trip we stayed three nights to see Enlighten, the James Turrell Retrospective, the National Arboretum and exhibitions at the Museum of Australian Democracy, the ACT Museum and Gallery and the ACT Crafts Council. Forrest Inn is very conveniently located close to Manuka and Kingston for good shopping and restaurants. On this trip the hotel was fully booked, so parking spaces were a bit limited but we managed to find spots on site. It was a bit noisy on one morning when a group of bikers started up their Harleys but otherwise well up to the usual standard. we will definitely stay there again.
