We have stayed here five times in recent years. While we enjoy the hotel’s comfort and location, parking has been an issue the last three visits due to the large events held at the hotel. Perhaps allocating one parking space per room would help to ensure equitable access to parking for guests.

Hi Elizabeth,Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I apologise that you have had difficulty with the parking, unfortunately, we do not have enough parking spaces to reserve one for each room and for this reason, we do not charge for parking. Should you require assistance in locating alternative parking our staff are more than happy to assist you. We hope to see you again soon.Kindest Regards,AllyFront Office Supervisor

We were given a room with a internal adjoining door. You could hear the people in the next room, talking, using their bathroom and sneezing until 3am in the morning. It was very uncomfortable and I didn't get a lot of sleep. We paid double for this room on a busy night in Canberra.
