They have no kitchen?! No food. No bar. A tiny common space with 2 chairs for a social area. You need to get takeaway food and eat in your room. This is not a hotel - this is a motel make no mistake. Very over rated and over priced for what it is.

Hi Richard Thank you for your review. None of our guest rooms have kitchens but we do have our honour bar available for all guests to access. Should you wish to book a room with a kitchen I can highly recommend the Burbury Apartments located opposite Brassey Hotel.

So cold in Canberra but the aircon took 2hours to come good. Understand it was sucking in freezing air but the beds and facilities outstanding. Favourite digs when In Canberra

Dear Mr Guthrie Thank you for your feedback, it's disappointing to read that the way your reservation was entered into our system via the booking website made it difficult for the team to locate on arrival. The website entered your surname as your first name and your first name as your title. I hope this wont deter you from returning on a future stay and hope to welcome you back.
