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...

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...

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...

Stayed in a family room for 2 nights to attend a family birthday at a very close location and was very happy with our choice of accomodation. As someone who was in the accomodation industry for 14 years and knows the importance of good staff together with clean rooms ,it was lovely to find the same at The Statesman. A...

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. Later on it began raining in Canberra and the gutters were overflowing through a spout designed for a downpour but even...

This is a nice hotel with value for money and close to all the consulates and cbd. No microwave sink etc but you have room service and there is a Coles literally next door. Can recommend to stay if you need a clean budget place. Like others have noted no stairs here but even the third floor climb with a...
