After moving house all day, rolled up for a meal at 8.30 pm on Sunday night (14 May 2017). Receptionist says the dining room closed at 8.00. OK, it was sort of a long shot - we'll go and have a drink. All the doors to the main bar are locked. Barman comes out and says he decided to close...

Passing through Canberra, and needed a place to stay for one night. I booked The Statesman Hotel on the actual morning i was arriving as it was a last minute stopover. It's located in a great location in Curtin, literally a 20 metre walk from Coles. The woman on reception was super polite and nice, she was organized and knew...

It was long weekend most hotel are fully booked. I booked a room two weeks ago in different hotel I didn't realize it was wrong date. Then I tried to find a room from hotels.com /tripadvisor websites etc but all booked out. I called this hotel directly I was lucky they still have the last room, they didn't charged normal...

I just don't understand why the free wifi offered by most motels and mid range hotels are non existent. The room was comfortable. The bathroom towels were a bit worn but overall we accepted the condition as we were here for one night.

Been here a couple of times for dinner. Don't let the sports bar put you off if you walk through that way - keep going to the main bar and bistro. The beer is good (most important) and the food is surprisingly good for the money (next important). As it is now my local I will be back.

A fairly last minute booking had me going to this 1960s hotel in the suburb of Curtin. While it was not as central as I'd like, I think the taxi from the airport was about $32 which isn't much more than to more central options. All reception staff I encountered were friendly and service minded. The room was clean and...

While not at the high end of cost for Canberra, this hotel saw better days 50 years ago and seems stuck at that point in time. Floor was so dirty on arrival I had to request a thorough cleaning in order to continue sleeping there. The restaurant serves well-cooked meals but in an atmosphere redolent of 60's chic-ness that has...

The rooms are pretty basic with limited hanging and drawer space and a pretty small bathroom (shower isn't very deep and for a larger person it's tough to have room to close the door to the toilet), but after telling the reception staff that the floor was dirty and very dusty and that we needed it well-cleaned we came back...

We have used this hotel a few times as it is close to friends especially if they are booked out for family functions! It isn’t expensive as we were there over the Christmas period however the restaurant and bar were closed. It is 2 storey so no lift if you are disabled however ramps on the ground floor. We didn’t...
