When driving here I was worried about where we were going. But I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are clean and the bed was great, staff were friendly. Joust 5 min down the road is a shopping centre, and lots of little cafes to sit and have a coffee. Nowhere is very far in

Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay overnight in Canberra. Easy to get to and from the city and easy to get out of when leaving. Beds were comfortable, shower had excellent hot water. A place I’ll definitely come back to.

I was recommended this hotel by a good friend, it was booked in less then 1 minute. Very comfortable bed, very easy check in and check out. Quiet location, away from the hustle and bustle. Would gladly stay again.

This accommodation was excellent in position to the main Canberra area. The restaurant food was excellent. The staff were very accommodating and I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to the Canberra area. Uber taxi like service in the area was very prompt.

Over the years my husband and I have stayed at this hotel many times. We have always found it to be clean and quiet. It is also in a good location for us as it is close to Woden and Tuggeranong which is where we usually need to be. Also the location is quiet - no traffic

I didn't notice any bike lockers either. The lift is really tiny. You won't fit a bike in there easily. The stairs isn't much better so make sure you stay on the ground floor.

Hi, I am travelling with my husband with his guide dog. Do you accomodate service dogs in your place?
By law they have to accommodate guide dogs. Call them to advise of the situation and they will look after you

is it close to war museum
Both of the above are correct, but beware, the roadworks at present could add a few minutes to the travelling time, especially if you are unfamiliar with Canberra.

Hi, Is there undercover parking for a very valuable motorcycle?
Hi Jean, We do have undercover parking available on both sides of our building. Harry W mentioned only four spaces, however there are many more on the other side of the building. The undercover parking is not 'secure' in the sense that it is not locked, however if you are only requiring shelter for your bike, this will not be a problem. Feel free to be in touch with our General Manager William Warner on 02 6295 3322 if you would like to discuss options further. Kind regards Ryan Deebank Sales & Marketing Manager
