Staff were helpful. Temperature control in rooms wasn't great, lounge room was warm, bedrooms were very cold, windows were whistling because of the wind. Great little kitchen area. hotel is close to all tourist attractions in Canberra.

Our apartment was also centrally located with a convenience store and cafe on the corner of our street and a superb bar and grill just next door. The city and the hop on hop off bus were an...

Apartment a little 'tired' but very spacious will all the necessities provided. WiFi available in the room which was great, as was the ability to purchase access to Foxtel, albeit not the channel I wanted! Great location and access to the walking bridge and tracks. Would definitely stay there again

Great location, walking distance to lots of things as well as great views of Canberra. Staff were friendly and easy to deal with, good size apartments and value but probably due for a refresh and wifi should be standard.

Loved the roominess of the apartment. All the basics were provided, but would have liked to have had WiFi available free to the room, not just reception area. Outstanding views. Reception staff, especially the young man who greeted us on arrival, were friendly & willing to help. All in all, a very pleasant stay and good value for money.
