Hey Sue, Thank you for taking the time out of your day write us a review. I'm sorry to hear that our snug room was not to your liking, we do have many other options in terms of rooms such as our Meandering Atrium room that we hope you will try some time. I hope you have a lovely day and we hope to see you again!

Love the vibe of Ovolo. Super trendy. Well equipped and comfy. Only downside is guest rooms are quite dark to try and work in…

Trendy and quirky accommodation in the heart of Canberra. Clean, modern and arty deco Parking is expensive and a bit of a hassle if you bring your own car.
