Very disappointed. Overpriced for a very rundown hotel. Only booked for the heated pool for the kids but it didn’t look clean enough for them to swim in unfortunately. Also didn’t realise it was located in a rough part of Canberra. Better value elsewhere.

Thank you for your review. We are in a delightful inner city part of Canberra... not rough at all.... although there is a busker at the local shops lol

Stayed eight nights, and the one bedroom apartment was very comfortable, clean and well maintained. Staff were also friendly, polite and helpful. Only ten minutes walk to the Dickson shops and buses; and 15 minute walk to the Northbourne tram. Would stay there again.

The property was very tired. While cost effective, the cleanliness was a lot to be desired.

Dear Anonymous. When somebody wants anonymity it suggests a malicious review as we are placed in a position where we cannot verify differing recollections of your stay
