I like to tell it how it is! Previous comments show the hotel has a very diverse reputation! My opinion is that is correct. We would not class it as four and a half star - more three and a half as it lacked the little things a four and a half is known for! What we liked was the...

Great atmosphere without any hassle. Early check in and late check out were no problem and all facilities were clean and well-maintained. Accessible to the city and Dickson for an extremely reasonable price. Will definitely stay again!

This establishment needs updating. We upgraded to an apartment to ensure a walk in shower which was fine with ample hot water on demand. There were no utensils or crockery, no microwave, the jug had to be filled at the handbasin via a glass and in places the carpet was bare. Comfortable bed and working air-conditioning. Breakfast was adequate with...

Stayed at the Pavilion for 5 weeks while in Canberra for work. Good basic accomodation, but nothing special. The indoor garden with hundreds of assorted tropical plants and a fish pond was a highlight. Rooms comfortable and spacious. Bathrooms will need an upgrade in a couple of years.

Secure easy parking. Friendly staff. Very clean. Comfortable bed. We have stayed here several times. Bathrooms a bit dated eg step over bath for the shower. Quiet despite work on light rail on Northbourne. Lovely bistro area for a quiet drink coffee or light snack. Formal dinning available.

Great location. The pool is a saviour in summer. Staff attentive and helpful. Air conditioning in the rooms struggles - the pedestal fan that was requested was provided promptly. Had to train house keeping that towels thrown in the bath need to be replaced with fresh ones - we got there

Great 3 night stay in January 2016 in Suite 250, looking out on the main road (Northbourne Avenue) I had no trouble with road noise, a good room and bed. Had 3 excellent breakfasts, all staff were friendly and helpfull. Free secure parking was a bonus and with a few minutes drive to the city centre, 4 km. A bus...

A very pleasant hotel with excellent meals. The pool was a little difficult for anyone with a disability such as knee problems and the hotel was quite a distance from the CBD. The shuttle was good but limited so taxi fares added a lot to our stay. Overall a very nice place to stay with helpful staff

Love this place, our home away from home, have stayed here many times over many years and it has always been great. Used the pool for the first time in January, it was lovely. Good to see Dan back, we missed him on our last stay. Love the Restaruant and staff are always so friendly. We will return.
