The best place to stay in Canberra! Great rooms with everything you need. We had a room with kitchen which was fantastic! Bedroom separate with huge bed & TV! Short walk to Manuka shops whether you want a meal, coffee, shopping or beer. Bus right outside that takes you into the city (2 or 3). Fantastic friendly staff and delicious...

This property remains a good 'value-for-money' option in the Capital Hill part of Canberra. Within walking distance (for fit people) of Parliament House & Manuka as well as other venues in the vicinity where meetings/conferences/etc are held. Facilities are basic & are getting old but are pretty well maintained & service is ok. This is not somewhere you take someone...

We recently spent three nights in the executive two bedroom apartment. The facilities was very clean and had everything we needed including a washing machine/dryer but it certainly didn't appear renovated recently, the blankets were old and thin, the brown quilt covers made the place looked dreary and you could hear the people in above apartment laughing, walking around and...

Front desk was not the nicest but the room and food surprised me. Everything from the bed to the fridge surprised me. I wasn't expecting this much for the price. Food was a-ma-zing. Haven't had such a good dinner in a while. Breakfast. Amazing. Wifi was a tad bit disappointing as was very expensive and only 500mb complimentary but good...
