We just got back today from a 3 night stay. This place is quiet and has the most prettiest tall trees. I loved how in the morning, the fog set in and it was really pretty. We stayed in a queen bed room and it was neat, tidy and the bed was really comfortable. We had issues with not being...

This motel is fairly new, clean and good value. Rooms are of average size but fine for a couple. Good wifi and a small restaurant. It is fairly close (short car trip, medium 10 minute walk) to the Dickson shopping area which has really developed in recent years. There you will find a wide range of restaurants, supermarket and other...

Family road trip to Coffs Harbour, stayed overnight purely to rest and revive. Rooms were ok, staff was pleasant. Breakfast was below average, would recommend eating breakfast elsewhere. Overall nothing to complain about but also nothing to rave about.

My husband and I stayed at the Best Western Tall Trees for one night over the weekend. It is a budget friendly accommodation option located in a suburban area of Canberra which is not far from most central attractions. The rooms are clean and tidy however if you are looking for fancy and luxurious rooms this is not the hotel...

Room clean no problem but very tired looking , dinner & breakfast especially disappointing, hot food very poorly presented , poached eggs many broken, runny yokes mixed in the water not great presentation. Great location some work needed guys. I have stayed here before previous visits much better.

We stayed in a downstairs queen room at Tall Trees while visiting the National Folk Festival. The site really does have amazing tall trees in its suburban street location well away from Northbourne Avenue. It was a place to 'crash' each night after returning from the music festival. Everything was ok until we decided to stay a couple extra days...

We had stayed at this motel about three years ago when it was in the middle of some overdue reservations. The web site indicated that the renovations had been completed, and as it was well located for the purposes of our visit we decided to give it another try. The paint, tiling and carpet had improved the appearance of the...

DennisJA Thank you for your review and it is disappointing to read that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Our standard rooms are compact yet still remaining functional. We are working on fixing the issues in the rooms from the relocation of the beds. The hotel does offer other room types that have larger bathrooms and living space,...

If you are looking for immaculate grounds and rooms, friendly staff and love quiet this is the place for you. Close enough to everything and in a residential area with the Ainsle and Dickson shops close by. The rooms are well laid out, and the bed was great. We toured the Parliament buildings and the war memorial in our one...

Clean motel accommodation located in quiet suburban setting, with virtually no traffic or industrial noise to disturb visit. Close to city area and numerous tourist attractions in National Capital. Good location for family visit.
