Room was great- quiet and clean. Very impressed with continental breakfast- very reasonably priced and only a little extra if you want a hot breakfast. Good location near a light rail stop

The Rex is in a wonderful location, right on Northbourne Avenue. For non-locals/those not familiar with Canberra is this is great spot - close to the great restaurants in the city and nearby Dickson, and very easy to find. The room we had (King Suite) was spacious - with a separate living area - which was a godsend for a long stay. The room was cleaned well each day. The breakfast was well-done given the circumstances in Covid-19. A selection of cold items (individuals packed) were available, along with a full hot breakfast on request. The breakfast team led by Sarah was great - remembering unique meal requests each day without prompting ad offering very useful tips for exploring Canberra.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rex. I travel to canberra often, as I am a cancer patient. The room was well stocked and clean. I would definitely stay again. Great value for money.
