We stayed for a night with the kids & it was perfect for us. The hotel is a bit run down but had a lot of character which we all enjoyed. Staff were lovely & accommodating. The meals were good & the kids loved the dinosaurs displayed between the floors!

It started with a lovely receptionist to check us in and it was such an easy process. Parking was free which was even better. Hot buffet breakfast was in the deal too and this was a big improvement on the continental breakfast on offer in other hotels. Cost was great value, room clean and modern with good tv reception across...

It was very noisy because of undergoing renovations (no information about it). We ordered a room with balcony and there was no balcony but the roof of the entrance area in front of our window towards a noisy street.

Hotel was clean and comfortable, slightly dated. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. Book library was a nice touch and treat table was too tempting. Only criticism was that there was no safe in room.

Welcoming staff upon arrival, comfortable & quiet room (except for the TV being left to automatically blast the unsuspecting guest awake at stupid o'clock in the morning!), super attentive staff & delicious food from the restaurant...all in a central location

Good location for what we wanted to do and see. Staff very friendly whilst we were there and very helpful on our arrival with the location of restaurants shops etc. Room was good and the bed provided a good nights sleep The only irritation was the lack of milk for our coffee /tea on the second day

Cons: Carpets and furniture in general require an update. Nice building structure in need of some reno to modernise it. Pros: Super friendly staff and a very convenient location as well as free parking.

The hotel is away from shops but central for commuting to most parts of Canberra. Hotel is about to be refurbished so it should rate higher in the future. Staff were quick to accommodate my requests. Bed was comfortable.

needs to be refreshed ..looking very tired, stayed there a couple of years ago and you could notice the difference this time, good location but needs to be modernised., rooms are a good size and beds were comfortable, just needs a coat of paint.
