Under renovation
The Rex has had a facelift and is beautifully appointed with a couple of unplanned errors. We booked at a good rate but would not have been happy at full price. The rooms still need some tweaking. Our room had a shower head that fell forward with the weight of the water when turned on. The power points have bright blue led lights to indicate they are in use, blinding at night as thy illuminated the room. The glass table tops on the bedside table are not anchored and could be disastrous, especially if children are involved. Pleasant stay but not if you were paying the full Tarif

Perfect location for hockey venue
Location for attendance at hockey competition at Lyneham was ideal as well as being walkable into Canberra itself. Recent redecoration are stylish, bed very comfortable and good quality along with bed linen and towels.

Romantic getaway
The room size, the sauna in the room, and accommodating staff.
This was a surprise getaway for my husband, so it was nice to see the change of the rooms, compared to when we had stayed there over 15 years ago. We did notice that we could hear the people in the next room, as they were rather loud, but didn't worry about it that much. We walked into the city to attend the multicultural festival that was on over the weekend. This was about 2km, so about a 20 minute walk, which was quite nice, walking from the rear of the hotel, through the pine trees. I did have an issue with the bed, as it was a little on the firm side for my liking, but managed to deal put up with it... Would definitely come back to stay.

we enjoyed our stay at the Rex
wonderful bed, wonderful pillows, great new bathroom
The hotel is a walk from the centre of town and a short drive to Ainslie shops where we found a wonderful French café where we sat out in the balmy night and enjoyed excellent food and wine. There was a wedding on but our room was very quiet, totally undisturbed. we will definitely stay again.
