The room while not large, was very nice, comfortable, clean and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the Motel itself was in an excellent location for site seeing. Wifi was reasonable, and there was plenty of parking, although some of it was in a poorly lit section at the back.

Lovely room, clean and updated. Breakfast was included and was good. The only drawback was the size of the bathroom - way too small for the room. There were tea and coffee making facilities but no milk provided so we had to go out and buy milk on the 2nd day - first night we had none.

It was a clean hotel with a great location. However the layout of the bathroom is less that convenient with having to squeeze your legs under the basin to sit on the toilet!! Breakfast is ok but often things are stale. It's meant to be a best west 'plus' but it's more on the basic level for accommodation. ok value...

Didn't want to stay in the center of the city and this place was ideal. Booked an overnight stay and was very pleased with the motel. Good parking area. It was very clean, neat and welcoming - impressive. Bathrobes and hairdryer were in the closet. Room was on the busy road side but was surprisingly quiet. Beds were very comfortable....

This was an average motel room. We stayed only one night and that was enough. There was no bathrobe in the closet. Continental breakfast was included but very limited. Restaurant very pricey which we believe makes people go elsewhere to eat. Not close to Canberra and not too many restaurants nearby.

An excellent hotel that was very comfortable, very spacious and comfortable room and had a tremendous view and great bed. Loved the convenience of the location and seeing a giant flock of cockatoos landing in the trees across the yard in the morning was a bonus!

My daughter and I recently stayed 1 night when visiting the Bus Depot Markets. This hotel is not situated in the centre of Canberra however it was central to our needs and offers excellent value for money. Our room was clean and comfortable with ample parking. We had a free continental breakfast which provided a variety of cereal options, fresh...

The bathroom looks a little tired. There is rust seeping from behind the vanity mirror.The bathrobe was missing from the closet. A room service menu item I ordered wasn't available but was substituted with a very nice meal. How old is this property? The bottom of the swimming pool has worn paint on it. Could they get International cable TV,...

very good stay, slightly out of the main centre, but was good for us for where we wanted to go to. Canberra needs a car to get around as distances are far. Room was large enough and the shower was terrific.
