good for passing by, not for tourists
the hotel is far away from the city center (20min by bus plus 8 min walking), though if your just passing by its convenient as its just next to the highway. the room had the minimal space required and you could hear a lot from the next rooms. The staff was quit helpful and the breakfast was good. There are no restaurants in a walking distance, just a gas station

Only a 1 nigt stay
We were disappointed when we arrived to have a problem with our booking, luckily we had our paperwork to confirm everything. But in the end it was all sorted out for us and the staff member was helpful about it One problem with staying here with small children is that they do not have cots for babies. In this day and age that is unheard of at any accommodation. so we had to have the baby sleep in the bed with his parents. The beds are not very comfortable but I guess you should expect this from such an inexpensive hotel. We had 3 rooms and the bathroom in one of the rooms had such a bad smell we didn't even use the shower, it was clean enough but just had an awful sewage smell. All in all we have stayed here before and will stay again as it is convenient for a one night stay on the way through Canberra, but wouldn't stay more than 1 night
