      Quiet and Convenient”

      Affordable, recently refurbished, clean and comfortable.

      Hotels in Canberra are rather overpriced, so if you are not a spendthrift and just need a room for a good night's sleep, then this motel is to be highly recommended. It is in the northern edge of Canberra, in a quiet spot in Watson, even though it is just off the Federal Hwy (which becomes Northbourne Ave). We had 3 nights there and slept in every morning. There is no restaurant, but our room had a good refrigerator, microwave oven as well as the usual tea/coffee making facility.

      Location near but off main road, quiet suburban location

      We had stayed at Red Cedars Motel several years ago, In some ways this time it did not quite live up to our expectations, but in important matters it did. Disappointing that breakfasts were an additional expense, motel style on trays. We had only cereal/milk and toast. Last night a bit of noise from adjoining or upstairs unit but acceptable. Standard motel services like tea/coffee/biscuits and TV were very satisfactory. Shower cubicle did not have a screen or curtain so wet bathroom floor,

      Clean, quiet and good value. ”

      Good service, great value for money. Clean and very quiet.

      although the motel is not in the centre of canberra, it is very convenient to the dickson shops where there is a wide variety of restaurants. there were many asian fusion eateries and we had a really wonderful time deciding on where to eat..and a great meal too. if you have a car, travel to any part of canberra is not a problem from here. it was especially nice and quiet as it was off the main road.
