            The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, I found no difficulties in calling taxi. They offered the best service that I ever had, the hotel staff gave me assistance when I found difficulties in turning on the heater. I felt satisfied for privacy and safety. I will come and stay in this hotel.

            The bed was comfortable and the room was clean

            The shower was not satisfactory poor water pressure, the cleaner just walked into my room in the morning without knocking and I my physically fitness was certainly challenged lugging my bags up from the car park to my room - the wheel has been invented and a trolley would have been helpful.

          • Family with children

            We love the location of the Motel which is only 10 mins from the City. The staff were friendly and the facilites were modern and new. It gave us a relaxing feeling. The entry and exit from the back door was a good idea and provided privacy.

            The room was small & crowded for 3 people, we were disappointed when we were charged an extra $40 over 2 nights because we had our 10yrs old daughter with us even though we weren't either provided with an extra bed nor bath towel. If the room was catered for 3 people then why only 2 people were covered for breakfast?. We had to pay for our 2 children at breakfast over the 2-day stay.

            We enjoyed our stay at the best Western Garden City very much and would stay again without hesitation. The rooms were nice and warm, the staff were friendly and helpful, the dining room was pleasant with a good range of menu options, and it was very quiet at night.

            The service was very good, we did not use any amenties during our stay.

            We thought the room was very small and the bathroom / toilet could have been better placed. The shower was good, Our visit was to spend time with family there. The pillows are very hard on the bed!

            Clean and happy staff. Good meals too.

            Foxtel and better waterpressure in the shower would be good. But not a serious issue. Car spaces a bit tight for a family sedan, but otherwise pretty good!

            I booked the room for the close proximity to Canberra Private hospital.We thought we were staying for 2 nights but my husband was discharged 1 day early. I was happy to pay for the second night even though we came home but they did not charge us for it.
