I could go on and on.. but the reviewers before have been spot on.
Luba & Chris are the most wonderful hosts, giving you your space but at the same time are lovely and charming and interested in what you are in Canberra for.
The room is perfect... it is huge, spotlessly clean, and you feel like you are staying in your own home rather than someone else's. This is because Luba and Chris have thought of everything! The bathroom cabinet had more essentials than I have at home! :-)
Other than being delightfully comfortable and furnished, the location is superb for Canberra.. with so much to see only minutes away.
The house is in one of the quietest streets in Australia, and the whole property is just a delight.
I've stayed on the other side of Canberra and can not believe how expensive it all is.
Do yourself a favour.. and only ever stay here. It is cheaper, cleaner and much nicer than any swanky hotel down the road!
Things worth doing in Canberra....
Questacon.. great for kids, they will go nuts.. left me and hubby a bit bored tho.
Do yourself a favour.. save the money and take the W.O.W tour at the zoo ( which is less than 10 mins away from the B&B). you will never ever regret it!!! It was the most brilliant day I have ever experienced!
If you like Thai food.. Lemongrass over on the civic side is yummo and still cheap considering the prices of eateries around it.
All in all.. look forward to finding a reason to go back to Canberra.. we had such a great time!
