    Value for Money, friendly staff and good location. The outer building is quite dated. However the interiors were very tastefully renovated. Rooms and bathrooms very spacious Location very close to all Canberra key spots.

    We stayed in a spacious, 2 bedroom, older style apartment, with a full kitchen, and a clothes washer and dryer included. There is an in-house restaurant, and it is only a short walk to many other restaurants at Manuka shopping center.

    Studio apartment with all amenities including decent coffee. Good location, close to Franklin Street restaurants and shops. A stones throw from Parliament. Very clean. Comfy beds. Pet friendly with a grassy area for them to run about on. Off street parking.
