This was my first time staying here and I had a deluxe balcony room. On the positive side - the room was quite spacious and had a decent-sized balcony for sitting outside. The rooms are a bit dated but, given the price, that didn't bother me. I found mine quite spacious. (Some new pillows though would be a good idea,... More

Our room is on the 2nd storey, so we have to carry the luggages to the room. We managed to get this room with 2 beds. The room is big and spacious and the beds are more than comfortable to rest our tired bodies after a 3hr plus journey. The heater is strong enough to keep us warm throughout the... More

We were in Canberra for a family wedding and found this hotel to be inexpensive and well located. Taxi fares to and from venues in the city were reasonable. The breakfasts (not included in tariff) were excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. Teabags, etc were topped up daily. The rooms were comfortable and spotless. The hotel is right...

Lovely hotel. I stayed in the King suite and it was very clean and comfortable. The cleaning staff are really lovely and professional as I had a chat with them while they were doing their rounds. Well priced and the location is great as there are parks nearby and a small shopping complex with a Coles next door. I also... More

This hotel is old, but clean and comfortable. Our room was spacious (apartment room 99). There was however insufficient car park spaces by night. We found that we would often go offsite for meals or the event we were attending to return late at night to a full car park and have to park on the street. We also experienced... More

Had a small self contained apartment for 5 nights. The well appointed kitchenette had everything you would need to cook a meal, although we only used it to make our breakfast. There was generous supply of tea, coffee, milo, milk and biscuits which was topped up everyday good. Beds comfortable. Small but comprehensive shopping centre right next door. Location was... More

Value for money is the verdict. Rooms are dated, worn but appear clean. Reception staff friendly but emphasis is motel and not hotel expectations. No safe in rooms. Limited extras apart from coffee and ironing board

We started our 3 day trip to Floriade in room 9 and I hardly slept a wink,The walls are extremely thin and you could hear every word the lady in the next room was saying whilst on her phone.
