Travelled with my 95yr old Mum so booked a disability suite. Very happy with the modern two bedroom & very clean unit with great kitchen facility (well equipped too) & ample space in bathroom. (My Mum loved the shower) Lovely quiet surroundings & even though situated out of city with a car easy to navigate & travelling time was negligible...

We have stayed here several times over the years and it is still a great motel. Haven't been here for a few years now and was pleased to eye it is still so good. Great family motel or for a group function. Very clean and comfortable

A quiet room (except for hot-water service running outside the window), helpful staff, onsite parking, good value while accompanying someone for a hospital stay, disappointing that restaurant was closed, not close to shops etc. I will stay again if I need to stay in Canberra.

My family with 2kids stayed here during floriade and had to book a room here as it was a last minute decision. But it amazed us as we thought, being a budget room would be disappointing.It was an individual cottage(like the others they have) with a separate bedroom and 2 bunk beds in the common area. The room was well...

The accommodation was large and well equipped. Shower powerful and hot, location quiet. Everything you could want. The staff were fantastic and being 7km out of Canberra its a quieter area but next to hwys to get you anywhere you want fast. I got a hire car from the airport which is only a couple of km down the road....

Spacious, clean, quiet rooms. Clean laundry facilities on site. Wifi. Only missing hot plates in the room to fully meet our needs. Last street on the edge of the city, but at least parking doesn't cost anything!

We stayed here on a recent trip to Canberra and wanted something reasonable and good value. Found this was a great place for our needs. A short drive to all of the attractions and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked at the bistro for dinner and they were serving 100 school kids, so they put us in...

I love having full kitchen wherever we go. This place not only provides that, but a clean and spacious interior, your own entrance with plenty of parking at the front, easy access to Canberra and safe and secure environment for kids to ride bikes or just roam about. Recommended!

Not 5 star but suited us as it had space. Went to Kanga Cup in July with 4 boys. Its old and the shower wets the bathroom a bit, but if you want a cheap and spacious (big grounds) this is great. Could do laundry for $4 plus dryer for another $4. It was just what we needed.

Good, clean, well priced rooms. Close to the city. Even on a -3 morning, the room was still a nice temperature. Parking is close to your room. Small but adequate kitchenette facilities. Separate parents room.
