This is a travelers' hotel in a recently renovated older building. it is on three levels with two wings and longish corridors. There are no elevators. Parking is not undercover and is difficult to locate on on the first visit, despite the use of GPS mapping. Some thought as to the adequacy of the address given for the Hotel is...

With Canberra buzzing with lots of visiting diplomats it was difficult to obtain a room anywhere for under $300 a night. We were able to secure a standard queen room for approx $250. For that price we had a tiny dark room with an semi renovated bathroom. The only windows were so high you couldn't reach them. That being said,...

We recently went to Canberra for the Versailles Exhibition. The Brassey hotel was great value for money as the package included tickets to the exhibition, breakfast, parking, a small bottle of Moet and a plate of macaroons! We went with another couple and made good use of a small lounge area to enjoy our drinks and nibbles. This hotel has...

We opted for a Superior Room for $20 extra and it was worth it - much more space. Friendly staff, but shame there isn't a restaurant onsite. But its central for the sights, and not far from Kingston where there are lots of eateries.

Had a comfortable stay at this hotel. Quiet room & very comfortable bed. There's a Nespresso machine in Foyer to use anytime which is nice. Staff very friendly and accomodating. Only complaint was housekeeping not leaving clean flannel or enough soap. We had to ask at desk.

The Hotel is a beautiful building in a great area, nice restaurants in walking distance and the Parlement House just up the road. Very friendly staff , daily room service, we stayed in a standard room with full en-suite, very comfortable bed, all in all we had a perfect long weekend at the Brassey Hotel in Canberra.

The hotel is very charming inside and outside. The room was adequate but two negatives. One: the hot water takes quite a while to heat up. Very wasteful of the water gushing down the drain. Two: It would be nice to be able to open windows to enjoy natural ventilation just once in a hotel without being plagued by insects....

The Brassey is located in Barton which is on the airport side of the City. You can walk to Lake Burley Griffin and a great foreshore development with pubs, cafes, and restaurants. Opposite the Brassey is also a great cafe called the Maple and Clove that prepare amazing brekfasts. Checkin was seemless,,the staff very attentive. Our room was clean, airy...

Stayed four nights in this old style hotel that is currently going through refurbishment. Room was large but poorly lit. King size bed comfortable. Daily room servicing was haphazard with poor attention to detail. Separate alcove area with small desk and wardrobe, but not suitable for doing any business/office work. Bathroom lacked sufficient lighting. Hallways are narrow, and dark. The...
