Quaint, quiet hotel in the heart of the university with a great little library and lushious green gardens. Fabulous cafe at Fellows Bar with reasonably priced breakfast and great coffee. Within walking distance to the city, New Acton and Lake Burley Griffen walking/cycling trail. A comforrable, cosy stay. Would definately stay here again.
