The fact that Prime Ministers and MPs stayed here. I think it is a pity that there is not more parking for a hotel of this size.

Property reflects the history of Canberra and offers very adequate and comfortable accommodation. Still charging for some wifi service and for parking on the property is an irritation.

Modernised classical Canberra heritage hotel. Small rooms but in wonderful early Canberra style. Very close to all the venues in the parliamentary zone.

The room was lovely, bed was super comfy and the bathroom was super clean. It felt as thought the staff were under a lot of pressure nearly everyone looked unhappy and service was a little slow.
