Rooms need an update but we were very comfortable (and warm - important in Canberra). The hotel was a little further from the city centre than I would have liked but that's my fault for not checking the location. It's quite easy to get around...More

I hate giving poor reviews and realistically this hotel should be rated somewhere in 3.5+. But I am rating them at 2 stars as a direct kick up the backside of the owner / managers. I was greeted by a very freindly and professional staff...More

This hotel has good access and plenty of free parking. The rooms are well appointed and the staff are friendly and helpful. Food in the restaurant is good quality and the German Club is just next door if you want some pork and cabbage specialities

Fast check-in & check-out, very clean & sizable room, fresh towels, garden & swimming pool view and friendly staff. Room service for dinner was also great. Not a fancy location, but it doesn't matter if we have a car to drive around

I didn't notice any bike lockers either. The lift is really tiny. You won't fit a bike in there easily. The stairs isn't much better so make sure you stay on the ground floor.
