We stayed for two nights in a double room, which had kitchen and laundry. The location is good you can walk to the local shops which have cafes and grocery stores. the rooms are OK, they need a bit of a freshen up but are clean and functional. We decided to skip the room service however I took the towels...

We had a spa suit, it was a bit disappointing that the bed was a zip together (uncomfortable to sleep on). Otherwise the room was comfortable. Could do with a bit of an update. Loved the "Green Option".

The staff were very helpful and we found our stay very nice. It's close to everything. We needed more room and thought we had booked a room with a kitchen and washing machine so they upgraded us for free for the inconvenience. I will definitely stay here again. The furniture is a bit tired but other than that we found...

Stayed here as a stopover for one night, on previous visits to Canberra we found it difficult to get around however we found this place with no trouble. Room was spacious and clean. Decor was lovely. It had opening windows which is a must for me, and the cool Canberra breeze was perfect after a hot day travelling. Good extractor...

Terrible! Old and not so clean rooms. Air conditioner was only for display. It was not swinging properly and far from beds. Beds are not with good quality. We were there for 7 days and for 3 days housekeeping was absent. Trash was flooding. Yaak! They were not ready to change our room. No views from the rooms. And creepy...

Neat, fresh, comfortable accommodation with useful services such as undercover parking included, and in-apartment washing machine. Just the accommodation you need when you have several days of business in North Canberra.

We found the apartment very convenient and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped although the furniture in the living area was a bit tired . The bed was comfortable and it the side tables and reading light good. The bath room was a bit old fashioned but there was plenty of room to put toiletries. However the exhaust fan was...

Tidy room inside a secure courtyard which is good for groups that want a motel type hotel but still have hotel type security. Ample underground parking. The only thing is that the room's lighting was too dim for my liking as a business traveller and I felt as if I was working hard to see. The bed was comfortable and...

Good quiet location, short walk or 2 min drive from the free card access undercover carpark (a bonus in Canberra especially in winter) to the Dickson shopping and restaurant precinct where every type of shop, takeaway and cafe/restaurants await you. Reception was quick and efficient and my ground floor room was clean and well equipped for a short or long...

A fantastic stay in a well appointed apartment, perfect for our group over the weekend. The only downside was that the carpets throughout the apartment were filthy, which is a big let-down when travelling with an infant.
