Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Right bang in the city. Plenty of dinning and shopping options around. Rooms are huge and they have everything you need. Located in one of the heritage building in Canberra. Have stayed few times due to its location. Hotel keeps improving little stuff which is good to see.

Very noisy elevator that could be heard from our room. No parking unless booked. Or available at a charge.This should be advertised in big print. Television did not work unless tuned in each time. The hotel had an excellent location

Thank you to the amazing staff…Ayush, Sabrtri, Farhan and the cleaners for making me feel safe and comfortable. Appreciate your willingness to help. Location…fantastic! It was a 3 minute walk to work. Restaurants as you walk out the front door, taxi rank, bus stop. I stayed a week and a half last month, returned for a day and I’ll definitely be back again.

This is a stock standard Quest apartment, with all the mod cons. It’s in a good location in the central city area. It’s an older building that has been renovated to house apartments, and whilst the apartments are modern, some of the lovely period features of the building have been maintained. The one bedroom executive suite has a large balcony. The air conditioning was very efficient and quite. The only downside is that any noise outside in the halls…other guests coming and going…can be very clearly heard. (In my case, several guests had returned and had a long, loud conversation in the hall, at midnight) You can also hear the noise from the outside restaurants and bars, but it wasn’t loud enough to impact my stay. Parking is a bit hit and miss, at the back of the building. It’s relatively inexpensive during the day and is free from 5pm-8.30am. I’d definitely stay here again. I recommend paying the extra for the executive apartment. It was well worth it.

Great location. Spacious room. We only stayed for one night on a saturday night. It's in a Lovely old building. The executive suites have large balconies overlooking the street. We parked on the street public parking is free on weekends and there are some spaces directly infront of hotel entrance which was very convenient. Minor issue wirh bathroom exhaust fan not functioning so smoke alarm kept triggering. I informed reception at check out. Bed was comfortable. Reception staff were good.

The room was pleasant, clean and had good facilities. I didn't have time to look around the area beyond the immediate vicinity, but there was a good number of restaurants to choose from. Unfortunately at 5.45 am some kind of construction work commenced outside near my room waking me up, but in no way do I blame the hotel for this. Curtains in the majority of hotels never seem to block the light, and this was no exception. The elevator sounded like a wounded dinosaur, and my room was unfortunately close by which was really only an issue in the morning.
