I stayed here a year ago and it was perfect then, and on my last trip, a week ago, it is still perfect. I was having trouble finding a shop and the wonderful lady on the front counter called them for me and helped me find it. Every one of their staff is friendly and helpful and everything is always...

Rooms well laid out and clean. The beds comfortable, Bathrooms starting to look a little tired especially the colour of wall tiles. Overall the staff and customer service you can't fault, however the building inside i.e restaurant dining area and pool surrounds and gym need a refresh.

This is a great hotel to enjoy while in Canberra. Free parking too:). Love the happy hour. Meals were fantastic, we didn't eat elsewhere. Bit disappointed in the size of pool, but other than that-fantastic!!
