Overnight Canberra
Nice room on 2nd floor clean and quiet. Had evening meal at restaurant price was acceptable and meal was good. Happy hour from 5.30 60 6.30 so had a few refreshing drinks with meal. Overall I would stay there again when we overnight in Canberra. Excellent staff at reception on arrival and departure. Restaurant staff were extremely nice as well. Would recommend to friends who do not want to stay in centre of Canberra. Plenty of parking on site and it's free.
