good central spot within Canberra and one of the best prices that I could find in the center of Canberra. The bed was very comfortable and bathroom very accesible and modern.

Overall, a nice place to stay. The welcome was lukewarm - "I really don't care if you are here or not" attitude from staff member

Good, basic accommodation. Good restaurant, no fuss, staff. I don't like having to climb stairs for my room but still the place is popular so you have to book early for lower ground floor rooms
