Long awaited & planned weekend in Canberra
I hadn't been to Canberra for about 5 years and was looking forward to the well planned full weekend visits to the National Gallery for the Versailles Exhibition, Australian War Memorial, a family catch-up, then watch the AFL Womens footy match Saturday evening. I planned to stay near Manuka Oval to walk to & from the game.
I was disappointed with my stay. I like a very comfy bed that is the most important thing to me, but this hotel's bed was so very hard that sleep was impossible. The room was above the restaurant where late night noise from the outdoor deck was a problem. Cockroaches can be a problem anywhere, unfortunately I had to kill one on the wall near the television. The bathroom was lovely, newly renovated with thick fluffy towels. Internet service was good. I had to try to get some sleep so on the second night I I folded both blankets to make a thick pad & put this under the bottom sheet to give a padded area for sleeping on my side. This allowed me to get some sleep as I had a long drive back home the next day.
