Amazing hotel, thank you!! If I have to be very picky, the water comes out of the shower (under the glass door) and comes out to the drain in the middle of the bathroom. Big problem? not at all, put a towel outside the beautiful, huge, big shower head shower and problem no more. If I have to be more picky, such a beautiful hotel should have a grand piano in the corner somewhere!! Apart from that, great hotel, great room, great staff, great coffee. Highly recommended!

Very crowded at dinner and staff quite stressed - maybe understaffed?? Was able to get a meal from the bar.

My second stay here, a year after the first, was better - no cleanliness issues. It's a charming, character hotel that's exactly where I need it to be for my work. It's not really a great location otherwise. The area is very much an administrative business park rather than a residential or commercial one - which does make it quiet. The staff are only ok, especially given this is not a cheap hotel. With only a couple exceptions, they seem to be only 70% there in terms of service and friendliness. Do they ever smile? Both times I went to the bar, I had to wait several minutes for them to finish cleaning or administrative looking tasks. Yes, I do expect that one of the 3-4 people behind the bar puts down the glass they're drying or the pen they're writing with to take my order - not tell me, after I've been standing there for a while without them looking at me, that they'll be with me in a couple of minutes. Good mojitos, tho. The night before I checked out, I went to the desk to order a taxi for 5am. At 5.07 I asked the front desk about it and he checked the note the woman had written and assumed that meant it had been done. I asked him to please check and he called the cab company. The cab arrived at 5.15 and the driver said it had been a "immediate" pickup, not a booked one. I can't be sure who was telling the truth, but I think the hotel didn't book my cab as requested. Lucky that 5am isn't busy or I might have missed my plane. And again, nobody asked how my stay was.

Great hotel, close to Manuka which is a great shopping centre and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. It is only 10 minutes walk to Lake Burley Griffin, and icons such as Parliament House, the National Gallery and National Library. Our room looked into leafy trees and was very quiet and comfortable.
