Good for an overnight stay or a couple of days

Posted 24-Mar-2015
Pros: Pleasant surroundings. Not far from Manuka and the City if you have a car but, not so great if you don't (there was a bus service passing outside)
Cons: Door closers! Sound travels in the building and the doors close with a clunk. Guests seemed to have a door slamming competition between 7am and 8am.
Location: Pleasant surroundings but not much to do unless you are in Canberra for a particular purpose, which we were.
Good, quick check in. Larger than average room in a quiet part of the place. Room had been renovated fairly recently but had a few quirks resulting from its past (e.g. walls a bit out of square so the shower screen and new tiling had to be fitted in awkwardly... but it worked O.K.). The room was spacious, the bed comfortable, the decor attractive, and a writing desk if you need to do any work. Not much of an outlook to the building next door from the outside rooms, but rooms on the courtyard would have a garden outlook. We weren't after 5 star and got what we paid for (IMO good 4 star) Meals were good and reasonably priced. Take time choosing where you sit for breakfast if you don't want to get blinded as the sun or reflection from doors gets almost everyone in the morning.

A very good hotel

Posted 26-Feb-2015
I was very impressed with this place. While it has the standard motel layout, it feels like a hotel. The staff are exceptional, and you sense that this a well managed operation. Good restaurant on site, and while it is a way from Central Canberra, the bus stops outside.

Very disappointing, They took many from my credit card(as security deposit) but who knows when they are going to return.

Quiet base for trips to town

A bit far from town centre but ok the 3.6 is justified

Had everything we needed for a night

Posted 25-Jan-2015
Pros: Good, basic accommodation.
Cons: The buffet service.
Pleasant overnight stay. Clean and catered perfectly for 4 adults in a room. Buffet breakfast was reasonable, although the very friendly staff were madly running around trying to keep up with demand. I would stay again.

stopover

Posted 18-Jan-2015
Pros: Comfy beds, lovely staff. Nice little pool for cooling off on a hot day.
Cons: Poor shower. Pool seating area could be improved - some shade umbrellas? We were also glad we had our own pillows with us.
Location: Nowhere to eat in walking distance, but nothing's very far away to drive to in Canberra.
Good basic hotel/motel for a stopover of a couple of days. Clean room, comfortable beds, and a good breakfast was welcomed by the family.

3 night stay on short holiday

Posted 06-Jan-2015
Pros: Location, quiet area
Cons: It seems the motel has the potential to be very good but needs a facelift
Location: Easy to get to Manuka, City Centre, major attractions and Woden Shopping Complex. Traffic was very light at this time of the year and driving was easy
Booked hotel and then asked for an upgrade to a superior room which was available so had a spa room which was a bonus at a reasonable price. The motel was busy in this holiday period Motel was in a convenient location for our day trips in Canberra. We did not use dining room or bar area at all.

I stay at about 70 to 80 hotels a year and find this one of the best , staff were very good , rooms were clean and there was a large group of young people there yet the room was quiet. A+
