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.

Chosen because it was near where my son lives. Functional is the best I can say for it, but too pricey to be just functional. The bed was also way too soft (they knew, said they were replacing them). Nothing really to recommend it.

We had a very comfortable stay at this Abode hotel when we decided at the last minute to visit Floriade. By booking directly on the Abode website we received a discount. We booked a studio room and on arrival we were give a family studio . It was very spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. The room had a view over the golf course. It was a bit of a walk to our room but we got our steps up ! The room was quiet and very comfortable and sufficient for our needs. The hotel does use a fairly strong air freshener in its hallways , which may cause reactions to those who are sensitive to smells or suffer migraines . There is a large car park and it is next to a public golf course & 15 min to the centre of Canberra. It was only a 5 minute drive to Kingston. We would stay here again on our next visit to Canberra.

I'll start this review by acknowledging that the staff were both helpful and welcoming when I booked by phone, and upon check-in. That professionalism, unfortunately, didn't extend to the cleaning staff. 1. There was a dirty plate behind the door in the bedroom, along with wrappers and other food litter. Not the nicest thing to see when you close the door for some privacy. 2. The washing machine was full of dirty towels that my wife washed and dried so that we could use the machine. That was a more palatable option than having someone else's dirty towels in a pile on the floor. 3. There was a blob of something that can only be described as "black gunk" on the wall of the shower. It was absolutely repulsive. My wife told the lady in reception as we booked out, and was assured that it would be escalated. I left a review via the automated Abode Feedback email that I received and I received an email from management apologising and offering a discount next time I stayed. I would like to think that this was a one-off and that the cleaner was just having a bad day, but I've now seen other reviews of Abode in the Canberra region and it seems as though the problem is rife. Despite management's offer of a discount on my next visit, there will not be a next time. This experience really took the shine off what was to be an enjoyable family weekend. If you must stay there, my advice is to ask to see the room before you check in.

We stayed here for 2 nights visiting Canberra. We were overall very satisfied with our room. Had a good size and was very good with kitchen and washing machine. Wi-Fi was good and the hotel had a big free parking lot. Our only complaint is that a mistake had occurred when our room was cleaned before arrival. Some hotels have these doors in between rooms if you should like to have 2 rooms together. We only had one room but the door into the room beside our room wasn’t locked, so we could literally walk straight into some other peoples room. Luckily it was empty. We also missed a drying rack for all our clothes and maybe some decor on the long hallways Also notice that this hotel is not placed in walking distance to the attractions in Canberra All in all we were okay satisfied when we had the door locked by the receptionist (You had to use a key)

It was easy to book online. The place was easy to find. The parking was exceptionally easy (and it was free and there was plenty of it). The room was easy, roomy, very neat, nice and modern, sparkling clean, lots of conveniences (microwave, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, good size TV). Crisp linen on a soft bed. The staff was very friendly, There was a big gym (which we didn’t use, however was quite amazed by it). Very convenient to a lot of restaurants - eat in and takeaway. We had an elderly guest and the whole place was flat and easy to get around. There was also a pantry with vending machines

The room(s) I had both had a full kitchenette and washing and drying facilities in each room which was a huge advantage in my opinion. The rooms were extremely quiet with no noise from neighbours or outside traffic. The first room I stayed in the aircon was not working unfortunately. I didn't need it the first night, so I didn't realise it was broken. The next day whislt at work I contacted the hotel (I left before reception was open in the morning) albeit late in the day (around 4pm) to state that the aircon wasn't working and if something could be done to sort it out. I then arrived about 2 hours later and asked about the aircon to which they said it wasn't fixed, however come back to reception in 10 minutes after packing your room and we'll move you to another. So after 10 minutes, reception had the new room ready for me which was an upgrade to a bigger room with separate lounch and dining room. This new room was actually closer to the main road, but I still didn't hear any sound coming through, so their windows and sound proofing were great. The only downside to the new room was the aircon at first I didn't think was working, but it was just very slow to cool the room down (the room had all the curtains open on a 34 degree celsius day, so obviously heated up considerably). By the next morning the room temperature was comfortable. My only advice to Abode is to get the aircons services as one not working and the other working albeit very slowly isn't ideal. The hotel itself is right next to a gym, golf driving range, mini putt-putt, chip and putt and across the road from a public golf course. It's extremely close to the airport, only a 10 minute drive away. The only restuarant within walking distance is the Harmonie Club down the road which serves great German food, including really nice pork knuckles. Would stay in again.

Very expensive night for what it is. Room was clean and spacious with small kitchen area. No food available on site. Why a kitchen if no food nearby. Not even a minibar - you have to order that online. Has everything else but no food and no restaurant is annoying especially at the price I paid. Also I booked a Wed night and noted that the next night was half the price! Why?

Very pleasantly surprised at how well appointed room was. Well thought out layout. Plenty of storage, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer and even a small stove. Downstairs got decent frozen meals and snack options. I’d definitely recommend to others and happily stay here again. My first Abode hotel stay.

This hotel is exactly like it promises. It is weirdly shaped leading to some long walks to our room but that wasn’t really a problem for us. It is clean and comfortable with with good air conditioning and a great location. The accomodation is reasonably priced but provides limited services.

We were welcomed by a very pleasant receptionist who informed us of the hours reception was open and the procedure to gain entry to the hotel outside of those hours. She also explained about the Abode pantry. Our room on the ground floor was of good size and the king size bed was quite comfortable. With our room being away from the road there was very little traffic noise.
