    ok for work in canberra”

    In need of a little TLC in the rooms. older building which is showing it's age, it could do with a refurbishment. The bathroom downstairs near the dining room is better than in the bedrooms. very convenient location, great car park, very extensive breakfast.

    Nice room, restaurant very good. ”

    I did pay for the room in full before I arrived and they did have my card details but still wanted another $100 when I arrived. ??? Never had that before at any hotel and I travel quite a bit. Other than that it was a very pleasant stay.

    Stayed here for one night with some colleague. Whilst the beds were huge, the room is in need of a renovation. The bathrooms downstairs near the conference rooms were much nicer than my room. It’s an older style hotel, so had to look under desks for PowerPoints. Ample parking which is a plus, I would stay here again for business, not for a holiday.

    Enjoyed my stay”

    Great clean hotel, was really happy with my stay here. Would recommend to others for the price I payed for the room. The room I had was spacious clean and tidy. Breakfast was good pre purchased it after I booked the room ( by requesting one day in advance breakfast was $ 20.00 ) Hotel was very close to the bus stop so was able to get to just about anywhere ... If you choose to use the public bus to get around may pay to get a day ticket round $ 9.10 which allows you to hop on hop off ... If you want to do the major tourist bits and pieces maybe look for bus 81 check with one of the bus drivers in the city or their transit office as routes can change over time.. Everyone is very helpful ... you only have to ask.. Would look at staying in this hotel again & Visit Canberra.. Australian War Memorial is worthy of a visit lots to see ( take one of the free guided tours its well worth it as a bit of knowledge about the place is a real insight ) Hope this helps like minded travellers. .....................

    Staff were sweet and kind, no awkwardness. Young Indian man on reception speaking perfect American English. A great breakfast as an optional extra. An intriguing decor, looks like an extra makeover of a once tired 70's motel. Not tired anymore. Huge internal canopy, potted plants.

    Very well presented motel, open and relaxing atmosphere inside, with all staff very pleasant and helpful, from the reception staff to the room make-up staff. Good food in good surroundings. Secure parking so no worries there. Probably the 'nicest' Australian motel that I have stayed in to date, surprisingly good value for money. (I booked online via Trivago)

    I was attending the funeral of a life long friend- I live in Sydney - so the whole event was distressing. Also- my husband had recent eye surgery so was unable to do any driving. I did the entire three hours or more up and back in the mist and rain. It was great to be able to relax in lovely surroundings. My only query is that I booked through Trivago- booking .com- some days prior. I paid $139 for the room. A day before I noticed that I could have paid $119 for the same room if I had booked directly with the hotel. Thus saving $20. When I asked for this price on booking in I learned that no alternate payment cold be made as I had booked through an outside resource. How does one ensure that one gets the best price for such?

    Perfect location, QUIET yet 3 minute drive from EVERYTHING. ”

    A lovely clean Hotel. Love the atrium in the middle, the pavillion makes the building cooler and enhances the quiet of the place. It is literally a 3 minute drive, cab from CBD and all the local tourist destinations. The service is impecable, the rooms have everything you need. Even though it faces the main road and our room faced the road, it was super quiet, and I had the window open about an inch and still the glazing blocked all the heat (It was 43 degrees over the weekend) and the road noise. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel and will definitely be coming back.

    Whilst it has a slightly dated feel, the facilities are excellent. The room décor however, seems a little tired. Staff were on the ball though. I had an issue with some plumbing noise in my room and was immediately moved to a room in another part of the hotel and simultaneously upgraded.

    Nice clean hotel, slightly in need of a makeover. Hotel is small and convenient if you drive. It is not walking distance to any facilities. Staff was very friendly and helpful. the rooms were quite basic and interior was as in older houses, more motel than hotel. Anyway, for a quick business trip, it suits fine.

    This is a nicely presented hotel. Comfortable beds but didn't sleep well as room got too hot overnight. Was disappointed with tv.. movies require payment but they are missing signal for free to air channels such as channel 10 and 9 life. Disappointing to have to pay extra to find something I would like to watch to relax after a day's work.
