Great Stay!
We stayed here for three nights and were extremely happy with all aspects of this hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was modern, comfortable and well maintained. The restaurant menu offered a good variety for all meals at reasonable prices. Would definitely stay here again!

Nice and clean
Nice and clean room. Only stayed the one night and the staff were happy to accommodate the request for a cot in our room as well and they didn't charge us extra. Not far from the city and lots of parking on site.

Chain hotels
Check in... Happy hour... Parking
Our stay was rather unremarkable, although the man at check in did a great job of reorganizing our booking as we had somehow managed to end up booked at two best westerns in Canberra, on the same night. The room was small and typical of any budget hotel worldwide, although the dining room was rather expensive at a hundred dollars for a meal for two, sans alcohol or desert In the end, we stayed the one pre booked night, then packed up and moved to the Burberry in Barton , although there was even discussion of blowing off the pre booked room and loosing the deposit. No way would I recommend this hotel, to anyone other than a budget traveler, booking online, and In would further recommend dining out asthe food was both below average in flavor ( cooking) and expensive

Friendly clean comfortable
As above
The staff member, Joe, was so welcoming despite the late hour we arrived. The room was comfortable and breakfast included was fantastic. Fresh fruit, muesli, cereals, cooked breakfast with the lot. Good value
