My mum loved the hotel and she is hard to please ;) The hotel was well furnished, clean and quite! The bath was roomy and would have been perfect for...

Hi Pinkpinkann, Thank you for your lovely review! Nothing makes us happier then hearing our guests have enjoyed their stay with us, especially tough critics ;) We would love to have you (and your Mum) come to stay again - perhaps you can try our Sauna Suite the next time! Best Regards, Jackie

Cannot fault the place. Free upgrade to gorgeous Crown Suite. Extremely gorgeous inside as per photos. Warm reception. Would return! Views not ideal from window but when your room is so clean and sexy who wants to look outside anyway =)

I booked my 20 & 15 year old boys in for 3 nights and I was blown away by how they were treated. The kids thoroughly enjoyed their stay. They could walk to town and my boys said that not only was it a great place to stay but they felt as though they received special treatment! Well done Canberra...

Spent the last 1.5 months on-off in Canberra for work and was staying at Rex Hotel (1 night) and apartment (total of 15 nights). Well, I could compare only with the 'motel' P******** down the road and Rex wins a few levels up! Everything here is almost perfect: pool, interior, quality of apartment, level of comfort, service, pool, etc. Definitely,...

My family & I stayed here for 5 nights. Apart from its great location which is walking distance to the main shops, it is well kept & clean with friendly staff at reception. The two bedroom unit we stayed in unfortunately only had the 1 shower but 2 toilets. Great balcony with district views but lacked any outdoor furniture which...

I have stayed at the Rex many times over the years, and love the recent renovations. The rooms are still spacious, but very modern and well designed. The staff as always are friendly, very helpful and made our stay most enjoyable. The best part is, the location. Close to Braddon and the city centre, easy walking distance. They also include...

I think I am like most travellers is that when you stay somewhere you want it to be clean and have friendly helpful staff. The Rex has all of that in spades. Stayed overnight recently on a motorbike road trip. The staff were very helpful from the start and noting was an issue in regards to accomodating my additional requests...

Early January in Canberra is taken over by the spectacular Summernats car show. We managed to get a King room for the weekend at the Rex which is on the main drag into town from the Showgrounds. The Rex has had a refurbishment and update since we last stayed here. We had a nice quiet room and weren't disturbed by...
