    I I stayed for 24 hours in transit for some meetings. The check in was efficient and the room a generous size with a separate lounge area. The bathroom is modern and functional. The cafe was more than adequate for breakfast and fairly typical buffet.

    Thank you for your kind review. It is the feeling of the rooms and the ambience in general that make University House a great place to stay. Apologies for the fire alarm. Hope to see you back again. TK Operations Manager

    Unihouse is a convenient location to see Canberra. The family rooms are large and have kitchen, dining room, etc. Beds are single beds though. It seemed reasonably priced for Canberra. The furnishings are reasonably quality although the rooms are really dated.
