The service was terrible as it took them 20 min to carry the plates out...two plates at a time...terrible for function service.

Excellent hotel with newly renovated modern rooms. The beds are awesome! The hotel is in a perfect location with plenty of parking and a sumptuous buffet breakfast is included in the room rate. For an affordable, yet modern hotel this is an ideal place for a stay in Canberra

stayed there last week, pleasantly surprised, this hotel has been refurbished, WOW, love it. Reception staff greeted us with a smile, room was available at 1:30. Clean large room, with a small balcony. Breakfast was great with lots of choices, hot and cold. A definite keeper. Well done

Stayed here for 4 nights. Great big room, comfortable bed, modern and up-to-date. No noise from Northbourne Ave either which was great. Very friendly staff, and a fantastic buffet breakfast which was included in our rate. Food was pretty good quality too so definitely no complaints. Only concern was that the carpark, whilst free, didn't have too many spaces available...

I visited here this week and was pleasantly surprised at the refurbishment and how luxurious this hotel is now. Definitely worth a look if you need a hotel closer to Braddon or Dickson. I had the breakfast buffet both days also and that was very good value with a good and interesting selection of items including house made baked beans...

The Canberra Rex hotel was situated in the Main Street that made this place so easy to find. Very easy check in and out though it has a major parking problems coz not enough parking space. The place seems like it was recently renovated which makes it more modern and attractive and have a classy appeal. The unit was roomy...

The restaurant breakfast is great value with a large selection of cereals, fruit compotes and hot food. I also recommend the restaurant for dinner. The staff are friendly and attentive....

Stayed here for 2 nights which included breakfast. Really good value. Walking distance to Lonsdale street shops and the central plaza. Friendly staff and great facilities. Free parking which is a big plus in the middle of Canberra where parking seems to be at a premium. Friendly staff, very clean and comfortable bed. Nothing more to add. Would highly recommend...

Has been nicely renovated since the last time my wife and stayed here. We stayed in a king room and was very comfortable. The bed is one of those cloud beds, very comfy and the pillows were as good. Our room had a small balcony which was nice to go out of an afternoon for a wine and some fresh...
