My expectations were surely exceeded, especially when I looked at the price and the location. This occurs rarely for me so when I am planning to travel to our nations capital I know where to stray. You will not be disappointed.

A good priced hotel nice and quiet. They had no breakfast facility but there are places a short walk away. Manuka also has great little eating places . One needs a car to get around though. Close to Parliament and easy access to all of the Canberra sights. Parking can be a slight struggle although there was extra parking at...

We've stayed often at The Brassey because we find it's close to everything and yet you feel like you're in the suburbs. Staff always helpful and the rooms nice. Bar is great and you can easily strike up a decent conversation there. Low key and relaxed charm

This is an "old" hotel with plenty of character. Some refurbishment is underway. The rooms are large, with large beds and the bathroom is more than adequate. The air conditioner wasn't fantastic though. The hotel is close to good restaurants and the shopping area is only a 5-10 minute walk. Car parking space seems to be limited, but where else...

We had made our booking a few hours before arriving. Reception was most pleasant and our subsequent request for a lower floor room met instantly - we didn't want to lug our heavy bags upstairs . Easy distance to attractions and restaurants.

What a wonderful night we had at the Brassy hotel. It was just a one night stay in Canberra, but I was pleasantly surprised at this gem of a hotel. Apparently the building is about 90 years old, and it looks beautiful. The inside has been totally renovated and is very nice. Our room was very large, with a king...
