We stayed for three nights here in January and really liked this hotel. It is convenient to get to if you have a car. We found it easy to drive everywhere around Canberra from here. It is not far to the attractions and a short drive to restaurants. Our room was large and comfortable. We didn't have any issues with...

Good quality hotel close enough to get into Canberra if driving. Very good amenities, clean room, plenty of space in the room and serviced well. Recommended for an affordable, clean stay in a convenient location.

Nice hotel. Rooms were clean and tidy. Bathrooms was a bit awkward as the toilet was very close to the hand basin. Restaurant was very good. Breakfast was plentiful and dinner meals were very large. Not right in the city centre but an easy 5-8 minute drive to the main attractions.

Hotel suited our needs as far as comfortability and location in relation to where we wanted to go. The room was std hotel room, big enough, great size TV. Bathroom lighting was a bit low and not much space to put stuff on but water pressure was good as was the hotness. Breakfast was a bit "how's ya father" and...

Booked directly online. Great experience all round from check-in to check-out. Only issue was the air conditioner was over the bed and a little noisy. Bed was very comfortable. Will definitely stay there again as it is great value for money.

The room was comfortable and reasonably clean and tidy. The bathroom was poorly designed and you have to sit sideways to use the toilet or your knees will hit the vanity. The bed was comfortable but the linen was threadbare and torn. The doona was filthy dirty, the bathmat was ripped as were the towels and the pillow cases. I...

There are three motels/self-contained units in this area. Don't quite know why as it's about 15 minutes from the CBD so it would not be advisable to stay here unless you were mobile. Typical big name motel room, not overly spacious, but adequate and reasonably priced. Clean and comfortable, friendly reception staff. Room was made up promptly. Has a restaurant...

This is a middle of the range motel, adequate but nothing special. The room was clean but the net curtain at the window was torn lengthwise in several places. Comfortable bed and quiet if you kept the window closed (noisy club nearby on the Saturday night we were there). Breakfast was to the usual motel standard - had the basics...

We stayed 3 nights in Canberra and had a nice and clean room. You can choose either continental or full breakfast, which was both fine. Staff is very friendly and it is very refreshing to use the outdoor pool after sightseeing. You can reach all Canberra sights easily by car.
