        Forrest Hotel And Apartments Reviews

        Guest reviews are submitted by our customers after their stay at Forrest Hotel And Apartments

        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The room was very comfortable and excellent value. Even though the room did not have any towels and the kettle did not work, the staff were very responsive to supply towels and a working kettle.

          Maybe a check on towels and ensure the kettle works (we were not worried (see above), but other guests may be upset by this). Tthe tiles were a bit cold, therefore during winter it would be good to have some mats.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          The proximity to Parliament House and Manuka Shops

          We stayed at some old apartments which they have taken over called Albany Apartments. For those Australians who remember the TV show Prisoner - it looked like Wentworthville Detention Centre - bleak and ghetto. Inside was basic, yet comfortable and the heater worked as did the electric blankets. Overpriced but it's Canberra!

        • Family with children
          7.8

          The Location was the best aspect, followed by comfort and value for money.

          Internet access should be offered free of charge based on the low cost of this service in Australia.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Quietness of venue, proximity to city/facilities

          Pillows were uncomfortable

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          It was in a easy location to get too the city and all site seeing sites

        • Family with children
          9.2

          The apartment was very clean. It was old but comfortable. The area is very quiet yet within close proximity of everything I wanted to do. I have no complaints.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          the room was clean

          The noise of the the cleaners early morning banging the door of the cleaning room next to the bedroom and The smell of oil frying from the restaurant also the Exhaust fan from the restaurant was right beside the bathroom window, so the noise was unbearable at night

        • Family with children
          4.6

          The Location

          We stayed in room No. 119. We were disappointed with the false advertising on the website with the look of the rooms in comparsion with what it ended up looking like. There was a cold draft coming under the door to the room (the couch to sit on was directly in front of the door) - Canberra winters are cold. Not value for money. No heater in the bathroom. The heating was insufficient. The restaurant was not open all weekend. Room service was not available all weekend. Getting luggage to and from the car was a challenge because the driveway was very narrow - if cars turned up behind you - it was very difficult. You had to drive around the block to get to your accommodation.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Excellent price ! We stayed in a 2 bdrm apartment for $159/night. The room was in the back of the hotel, but very new and clean.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Great location, 5-10 minutes easy walk from Manuka shops and eateries.

          Could do with more off street parking

        • Couple
          7.8

          Close to the city.

          Not enough onsite parking, is more motel than hotel.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          The restaurant staff were very helpful when we purchased coffee/hot chocolate - out of hours. They greeted us with a friendly smile and a helpful attitude. Thanks

          Basic room that is only average in size. Close to National Press Club but not to the main drag of Canberra. You need a car to get anywhere.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          The proximity to most things in we wanted to go to and the price.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Convenient and quiet location. Premises was well kept and comfortable.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          Location was excellent with an easy 10 minute stroll to shops, cafe, cinema, supermarket

          Could do with a bit of a facelift with updated fixture/furnishing and a more reliable heater
