Location, good parking, spacious unit. The downside was the bed, not comfortable and caused sleeplessness.

Have stayed at Sundown four or more times now. Always great value for money. However, the villas are starting to show their age and could do with some tender care. They look as if they last had a revamp some years ago, especially the bathrooms.

I liked that it was away from the busy part of Canberra but close enough to drive. The first few days were very hot and the aircon was noisy and not cool so I probably wouldn't stay in the hot months.

The place is clean and basic. Fine for a night if you don't ant to pay ridiculous gouging prices when parliament is sitting. But it is basically a country motel and caravan park, still only 10 minutes from the airport and the centre of Canberra.
