I can safely say this is my last stay at an Ibis budget hotel. The floor of my room was sticky. The shower/toilet pod was mouldy. The bed was lumpy and uneven. I think I'm at the age where I can't put up with these places like I used to. I'd rather spend an extra $30 or so and go somewhere a bit nicer.

Hi Angela, Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to provide us with a 5 star review! We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel on your next visit to Canberra.

5 out of 5
A very accessible and easy to find hotel as you enter Canberra from the north, just off the Federal Highway. Nice little hotel room that's very clean with fluffy towels and comfortable bed. Small but functional bathroom with good water pressure. I really liked the sink next to the king sized bed. If you arrive during reception hours you'll be greeted with plenty of warmth and genuine hospitality and there are a range of food and snack options onsite. I would definitely stay here again.

Hi Anonymous, Thank you so much for staying with us and supporting us during these funny COVID times. I'm delighted to see that you had such a pleasant stay, though my sincerest apologies for the issues with the heater dial. I'm just grateful that the heater still worked considering how bloody cold it is in Canberra at the moment! Thank you again for sharing your experience and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Warm regards Patrick Gullotto General Manager
