    This hotel is clean and very convenient with parking. It is close to parliament house and Manuka shops. The price is very reasonable, however the hotel/room is a bit old, so don't expect too much and it is more of a motel style.

    Clean, but very old hotel rooms. Old blankets, no quilts, worn dirty carpets, old uncomfy beds. Not a great place for a family stay. We ended up heading home to Sydney a night early as we were keen to get back to our own beds.
