Good inexpensive accomodation and very handy to city and main attractions.

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Feb 2024
This was an inexpensive motel and although the room size reflected that, it was adequate for our needs as regards the comfort of the bedding, the WiFi, the air-conditioning, the shower etc. The bathroom required some careful planning to use, but did the job, and there was not a lot of room for cases in the main room. The guests upstairs spent the early morning dragging furniture around so a rude awakening but free parking near the room and a good price.

The room was tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable with all amenities required. Nice touches include a hairdryer and ironing board and good quality electrical appliances. Location is great, walk to Manuka for a great selection of eating places. Quiet and peaceful with on site parking right outside your door. Good service. Good quality takeaway meals are available if you too tired to venture out. Loads of info on Canberra and what's on.
Very pleasant stay and I will be coming back.

The accommodation at the forest is simple but it's reliable. It is great value for money a inconvenient to Manuka, Civic and Parliament House. There is great barbecue area. The rooms are clean and well thought out. From the reception staff to the cleaning staff they do everything possible to make your stay wonderful. There is a laundry in the Hotel with dryers.

Stayed two nights with the Wall2Wall group. Lovely clean well appointed rooms. It's great that the restaurant is still open for takeaway and room delivery. Would be lovely to dine in too but maybe that will return as an option again in the future. Very convenient to shops, Manuka Oval, the National Police Memorial and many other venues. Guest laundry onsite. Staff are very friendly.

Good value and location.
Clean apartment and nice and quiet.
Booked for 2 nights and had to leave after 1 night.
They were very understanding and refunded without any dramas.
Would stay again if back in Canberra.

Was there for one night in early September.

Room was nice and clean, beds (as mentioned in other reviews) are on the had side, but I knew this and bought a doona with me and slept on that. No problems.

Bathroom was spotless, shower was good. Was pretty quiet all night and even though the temp outside was -2 in the morning the room stayed quite warm overnight with no need for me to put the heater/air-cond on.

Parking is "first-in" basis, note the hotel is busy so beware of this. I had no problems.

Reception has good hours and staff are friendly.

I'd stay there again for sure. It's a very convenient location near my family.

Note - it is an older hotel, but I knew this and that is fine, but it may not suit some travellers.
