Quiet and away from noise and traffic although 8 minutes to Canberra centre and 12 minutes to Parliament House. Close to restaurants and shops at Dickson, 5 minutes to walk. Clean well kept and staff friendly. All requests and questions answered. Nice rooms with comfy beds and safe surroundings and lock up garage. Would stay here by myself and feel...

It was very clean, warm and ready for me no matter that I booked it in the last moment, for me 10 out of 10, so definitely will come back and recommend to others. My room had no view but hope the area is in growth... Thank you and see you soon again!!!

Stayed for a few days and the hotel was excellent value for money. Very reasonable price, and excellent value for money. A very convenient location for us. We stayed in a studio, 3 bed apartment which was clean and well kept. All amenities are available, and they even had a barbeque (which I saw people using!). This is more like...

We stayed here one night in transit when moving from Canberra to Victoria. we were in a two bedroom apartment. Unfortunetly, we arrived relatively late (around 1815) and left early so didn't get to enjoy the room as much as we would have liked. Likes: - room was well configured, clean, tidy and secure. - free parking (also undercover and...

We had a twin room, very reasonable price and really well designed (and big) with 2 sections and a kitchen area in between. Room had microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle etc which made self catering easy...though we ate out each night as there are loads of restaurants (mainly Asian options) with a short walk. Beds were perfect, decoration maybe a little...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days. Found it convenient and often walked to the local Dickson shops for groceries and dinner. The Ducks Nuts pub nearby was great for a Friday night drink. Free wifi was handy as well as the text message we received to check everything was OK. Good value for money. Apartment had everything we...

We went to this hotel after an horrific experience earlier in the day and found the welcoming friendly and reassuring. The young lass at reception was wonderful. The room was clean, tidy and welcoming, under cover parking was also a bonus as it was pouring rain outside. Plenty of amenities and a comfortable bed. The 11 AM check out was...

Great apartment and very friendly staff. The one bedroom apartment with kitchenette had everything we could need for a week stay. There was enough facilities to cook every night and we were pleasantly surprised to find a washing machine in the bathroom. The bed was super comfortable and the toiletries were restocked every time our room was serviced. I look...

We stayed one Saturday night. We had a 3 room suite, living room, bedroom & bathroom. The living room was spacious at the expense of the bedroom. The bed was kingsize in a small room meaning one had to walk around the bedroom door to get to the bed and the end of the wardrobe wasn't accessible due to the...
