We stayed there after a late arrival at the airport. The place was clean and comfortable. Big room. The breakfast was quite average and the lift is very small and slow. Friendly service. Tip: I couldn't find the tissues in the bathroom until they were pointed out to me mounted high on the wall.

We stayed here again because we had a positive experience the same time last year. We were again happy with the room comfort/cleanliness and the friendly, helpful staff. Our daughter loved the pool and my husband made use of the gym. The hotel space and rooms provide free wifi, which, in our opinion, should be free at all hotels but...

This is a nice, well appointed, very comfortable motel in a slightly inconvenient part of southern Canberra. If you have a car, it's within 10 minutes of Manuka and Kingston, so inconvenience is minimal. The rooms are excellent. Beds are comfortable and, even though I had a room facing the main road, rooms are quiet. There's a nice bar and...

This hotel is located in South Canberra within a few minutes’ drive from all that Canberra has to offer. It is comfortable, and reasonably priced. The reception and restaurant staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable with free internet access. The swimming pool is great in the summer months and parking is free and plentiful....

From the moment I walked in, to the moment I left, the experience was fantastic at this hotel. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Everything inside the room worked as it should and the bed was very comfortable.

Great hotel with Beautiful Friendly staff who are always ready to help you, which is somewhat hard to find these days. My experience here has and still is fantastic, with comfortable beds and generously sized rooms, bathrooms are a little tight but still very functional. The location is also great, close to the city and shops. If you stay here...

I stayed here for two nights with my wife so we could catch up with friends. Although this hotel is not located in the CBD, it is only around $20 Aust in a taxi to Civic. Not bad if you are going to have a few drinks as the AFP are hot on drink driving. The hotel staff are pleasant...

We stayed for three nights here in January and really liked this hotel. It is convenient to get to if you have a car. We found it easy to drive everywhere around Canberra from here. It is not far to the attractions and a short drive to restaurants. Our room was large and comfortable. We didn't have any issues with...

Good quality hotel close enough to get into Canberra if driving. Very good amenities, clean room, plenty of space in the room and serviced well. Recommended for an affordable, clean stay in a convenient location.
