We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was comfortable and clean. The bed and pillow were super comfy. The balcony was small and had nothing to sit on if you wanted to sit out, however it was overlooking the next building and so not desirable to go out there anyway. The parking is a bit tight. The breakfast was...

Visiting Canberra for the Versailles exhibition. Hotel was convenient for getting around. We had a room overlooking the back carpark and storage sheds and was noisy. Parking is limited and is used by non residents as well. WI/FI connection very poor. Only 1 chair in a double room which really irks me. Furnishings dusty and bathroom waste bin needs a...

The Hotel is undergoing a process of refurbishment which is being done to a very high standard., We had a suite which was superb, large, light and airy. The breakfast and evening meal were excellent and very much value for money. The location was perfect, on the main road into the City and an easy walk to the centre.

We enjoyed a one night stay at the Rex. Room was large and had everything we needed. Breakfast range catered for all tastes. The staff were very helpful and polite (Guarav in particular). Well stay there again when we are in Canberra

The Pros: The rooms are beautiful, the spa was great and the bed was very comfortable. The Cons: I wrote to the hotel in advance letting them know it was my 29th wedding anniversary hoping they might upgrade us or do something nice for us but when we arrived they did nothing for us, not even a bottle of wine...

Just a lovely place to stay. Rooms have been modernized with the most comfortable beds.Bathrooms are lovely, showers divine. The breakfasts are simply wonderful, one of the best I have ever had. Try the restaurant for dinner, very good food. The service in this hotel is excellent. It is close to everything.When we stayed there the value was excellent.

We stayed at the Rex for a one night break. This property has been overhauled and is very tastefully renovated to former glory. We had a suite which was very spacious and quite new. However! A few things I must mention: a few bad stains on our carpet; rubbish left in drawers and cupboards from previous guests! ; aircon very...

Nice place. Very clean, efficient check-in, nice rooms, and a sensational breakfast. Parking is easy, and it's close enough to the centre to walk pretty much everywhere. The view from our particular window was less than stellar, but I can live with that. Would stay again.

We stayed 2 nights here on a trip up to Sydney. The hotel has been recently updated and there was still some work going on but this was hardly noticeable. The King room is not large but is well equiped. Breakfast was included and this was a full buffet which was very nice. There was plenty of parking onsite but...
