The Hotel was conveniently located for us and there was always a space available for our car. The staff were always smiling and friendly during our stay. They said to see them if we had trouble finding a car park. The room was a single room with a king bed. Room was very modern and clean. Definitely include the breakfast...

Recent renovation shows. Room, particularly bathroom, was excellent; very modern and well appointed. I ask for two main things in a hotel- good bed, good shower both passed with flying colours. Good breakfast. The only major complaint is the 10.00pm closing for room service- fortunately when I checked in at 9.52pm the receptionist assisted in ordering dinner before chef went...

Stayed here 5 years ago and the old girl was looking the worse for wear. They have refurbished and added another wing and it has much improved. Old rooms are still small but now in much better condition. Breakfast, well if I had my time over, I would skip. Staff very friendly. New light rail will be on the doorstep...

We were extremely happy with our choice of Canberra hotel for our stay over Easter. The hotel has been completely refurbished and is very comfortable. We booked a King Suite which was lovely. Our only complaint was the high temperature in the breakfast room. It was far too hot. Breakfast is included in the room rate and was a very...

Stayed here on two separate nights with my nine year old son. Check was easy and friendly. All the staff we encountered were friendly. Only ten minutes or so from the airport. We had a standard room the first night, and when we came back a few days later a junior suite. Both lovely but the suite - wow!! Buffet...

We had a wonderful stay. Clean, bright and comfy! Only concern with our room, we returned back after a full day exploring and found our door open!!! The cleaners hadn't fully closed our door when leaving, it needed pulling to securely close it. We did explain to the receptionist on checkout without much concern on their behalf. It is a...

A family wedding in the capital lead us to book a night at the Rex and we were not disappointed. Not only does it offer great value for money, but the whole complex has had a generous makeover. Whilst the rooms are not large they are well appointed with a big flat screen TV, and a well laid bathroom with...

I may have to hand in my Hotel Reviewer’s Badge because I couldn’t fault the Rex, or its staff. Rooms were large, modern, functional and functioning, and very comfortable. Room size easily passed the suitcase tests, there was an Olympic sized shower with water-pressure sufficient to blast off the barnacles. Déjeuner was a comprehensive range of all things ‘breakfasty’ in...

Returned to the Rex along with other friends in a mini bus from interstate. Stayed in the hotel this time. Again did not disappoint, rooms lovely, breakfasts all you need, and the restaurant meals delicious. Ended up eating there most nights, with friendly Freddie and Fifi behind the bar. Had a little problem but the most delightful Giaurav and Victoria...
