Stayed a 3 nights in a standard room, that was very comfortable and well maintained. The reception staff were very friendly and efficient, and organised a wake up call and taxi for an early checkout. Very convenient for a conference at the National Convention Centre.

Spent a most enjoyable 3 days / 2 nights in our Capital doing all the things we haven't done since school days. Visited Parliament House and sat in on question time in the House of Reps, went to Old Parliament House and sat in the Prime Minister's Office, looked at Blue Poles at the National Art Gallery, listened to the...

As an IHG Rewards Club member, this hotel was our first consideration on a recent visit to Canberra, and its location in the heart of Canberra Civic, and very reasonable prices, confirmed it as a good choice. We arrived around midday and were advised we had an upgrade, though I'm not really sure what we were upgraded from or to,...

Great service, great location - excellent value for money. Hubby and I stayed with our 2 children. Good size room - the four of us were comfortable. The bathroom could do with an upgrade - otherwise, very nice. Lovely view of the park. Breakfast buffet was lovely - good selection. The staff very friendly and attentive to the children (which...

This hotel is situated in the centre of Canberra, close to shops and restaurants. Staff are friendly and helpful, and room was well presented. The hotel car park was typical of such sites - small spaces and limited room to manoeuvre. We stayed 2 nights, but glasses were not washed, and nor was rubbish removed. A bit disappointing for such...

A conference and a wedding five weeks apart in Canberra caused us to stay twice at this hotel recently. We have probably stayed at this property more than 20 times over the years and we keep coming back when we can get a good price for a room which we always book via the IHG website. I wouldn't keep coming...

spent 2 nights here while visiting my son. I couldn't fault the service, be it at check-in, check-out, concierge or getting a take away coffee. The rooms were clean, generous size and well appointed. The bathroom could do with a make over but all in all for the rates I got, you can't complain. A ggod solid 4 star rating.

Who designed this place? we felt like we were staying in a private hospital with room service. Our room, a suite overlooking the park, could only be reached by traversing the endless v-shaped balcony walkway, through it's pointless bend to the other side of the building. Why is there no aerial walkway? Or a second set of lifts on the...

I had a rushed trip so booked late. They provided two room options which was friendly and unexpected. Staff are terrific, engaging and supporting. The room itself was well presented, quite large and clean. It is 4 star but pleasant. Everything you need or expect is there and in place.
