Don't, unless you're on a bus tour

Posted 21-Sep-2017
Pros: nothing much
Cons: everything pretty much but its an old '70'S building so don't hold your breath
Location: in the south eastern 'burbs of Canberra.
Thinnest walls, loudest banging doors, echoes EVERYWHERE. Don't, unless its included in your bus tour.

Great choice but needs new curtains!

Posted 20-Sep-2017
Great staff, good facilities and really excellent included breakfast. A very nice experience overal except for a huge flaw - my room only had a thin lace curtain that you could easily see through. I was worried about my privacy because it seemed like almost the entire room could be seen through the curtain from the outside, and there were buildings only a couple of metres away next door

The toilet paper holder was broken and came down on your hand every time you went for paper the first thing we saw when we walked into the room was a broken bent screen it looked like someone had tried to break in we were so tired we got a pizza from the restaurant which was a pathetic excuse for a pizza you had to search for toppings and when you found them they were so small and thin you couldn't even taste it

Amenities were fantastic, especially the smart TV. Issue with lack of parking when arriving back from a function and buses parking in incorrect areas. Security was fantastic, were little risk of being disturbed by any trouble makers.

On the first night of my stay I had to wait for 40 minutes for Secuirty to let me in as my key would not work. Second night key did not work again. I would love to speak to a manager but they don't work weekends

Stylish comfort with friendly staff

Posted 07-Sep-2017
Affordable yet stylish, we enjoyed our 2-night stay - made all the more enjoyable by friendly, efficient staff. We were in Canberra for Aboriginal cultural reasons, and I applaud the hotel management for displaying the hand-crafted Acknowledgement of Country in the lobby, as well as the Aboriginal, and Torre Strait Islander flags. These aspects of Indigenous culture made us feel more at home. Congratulations to the staff responsible. Displaying authentic Indigenous art at your property would also be a great initiative. Thank you.

I recently stayed at this hotel and the staff were very pleasant and extremely helpful. Had dinner in the restaurant and breakfast and all the staff were wonderful, and smiling which was great. Room was very clean and was a great place to stay

Pretty good. Breakfast they need name tags in open buffet. Parking space is very poor. Overall very family oriented. 4/5 easy access to everywhere with public transport or car

perfect for the price

Posted 24-Aug-2017
Pros: walking distance to the german club for schnitzel
Cons: Get rid of smoking near the entrance to each wings. Make it closer to a sewer.
great sized room - loved it. Plenty of space for us and our bikes, which we put on the balcony.

Very clean and staff friendly

We stayed one night but it was great. My daughter ordered a pizza that turned out not what she expected and they made her what she wanted for free. Thanks so much.
