    We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were friendly & helpful, and the hotel had an overall nice feeling about it. The room had everything we needed and was most comfortable - we only wished we could stay longer!

    Quiet hotel with character and spacious feel. A warm welcome as you enter from friendly staff.

    I would suggest that the "breakfast" package includes a fully cooked breakfast. We stayed over the weekend and our package we found after arriving was for continental only. We noted that not may used the cooked buffet breakfast and so a lot of food was wasted.

    The gentleman on reception was very helpful and accomodating. The room was comfortable and had free internet service. Internet service is very important to me when choosing a hotel.

    Staff are most courteous and efficient

    The Breakfast situation of $20 for a "full" breakfast .(in line with ordinary hotels.....what happened to the menu based breakfast.?...that was something I looked forward to as it was different to other hotels, more personal service...If you do decide to go to the $20 hot breakfast buffet then it needs to have a wider choice .for the money( not my preferred option)...

    We found this hotel many years ago and find it a great location for visiting all the interesting places in Canberra.

    The airconditioning only blew cold.Surprised they didn't serve vegetables with their meals.

    The service was excellent. No request was difficult, staff met requests in a professional and & empathetic manner; a sincere service.

    I can only speak for the room I was in. There were carpet stains and that was it really.

  • Single
    5.0

    The restaurant was open a reasonable time and the food good enough. There is plenty of free parking available.

    Internet was very poor, the room (1008) was very noisy from some generator or something that kept kicking in, and there was lots of noise from the adjacent kitchen and dining room.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    On entering the room we immediately smelt cigarette smoke. We considered calling front desk but as it was late we showered and went to bed. Even the sheets smelt of smoke. The next am we noticed two cigarette buts on the balcony in an ashtray. I know we should have said something the night before but.... Not good enough. We did make comment and the helpful reception suggested we should have called.
