        • Plus delightful pool/outdoor area and nice hotel. Clean , helpful staff and comfortable bed. Breakfast was good value.

          On a freezing cold Canberra night and room small. The prices of the mini bar were very high for the items and our sheets were not changed.

        • Good location for our needs, pleasant decor and reasonable prices. Clean and happy staff, receptionist was lovely and helpful, also 2 days appeared the room was not cleaned very well at all. Bar looked worth a visit, as did the pool and garden, the restaurant was very nice.

          A bit far away from the city centre, handy to cafes etc_ Breakfast a little expensive at hotel and the water could not be regulated. Toilet could have been better placed.
