We booked here for two people the room was clean and even though construction was being done at the hotel it was still comfortable. Considering we booked for two people it would have been nice to have two chairs in the room and a little table to eat at as we had to eat on the bed. There is no...

I stayed at the Brassey Hotel for one night with something like a 40% discount. My comments take into account that pricing. The Brassey is for you if you like; 1) Hotels that look great from the outside and have a gym. 2) Quits and then a sheet on beds so on hot nights it’s all or nothing. 3) Noisy...

Dear Snarper, Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay. Great to hear you enjoyed the large traditional rooms and found the renovations did not impact your stay. Some of your comments do surprise me however, in particular that of our location. The Brassey Hotel is centrally located in our parliamentary district, and is one of the closest...

Stayed for the weekend - we got a great deal on the room and were impressed with how clean, spacious and comfortable the room was. The only issue was parking could be limited at times but that was due to the current renovations.

We visit Canberra a few times a year to view exhibitions, to catch up with friends or family members or to catch the plane or just passing through to other destinations. We stay usually for two days. We recently discovered the Brassey Hotel situated near our desired spots of interest, nestled in the green peaceful area. This hotel has no...

Hi Marielund, Thanks for your wonderful review. It is great to hear you enjoyed the property, including the upgrades we are continuing to unveil! Buvette is one our favourite new addition also, and has been thoroughly enjoyed as a breakfast, lunch and dinner option with chargeback facility. Once fuelled with good food bikes are a fantastic way to explore the...

Arrived with some trepidation at Brassey Hotel, as I remember this place from many years ago when it seemed run down. Quite a surprise as it's been refurbished and there is still some residual work being completed in and around the hotel currently and the workmen are onsite from 7am. Clean rooms with comfortable beds, slightly stuffy even with aircon...

We were given an upgrade which was really nice, huge room, separate dressing room and of course bathroom with kingsize bed. It made the flat screen TV seem rather small but then again, we weren't expecting a home theatre! The bathroom could have done with a good clean, there was soap scum on the tiles near the shower head and...

We had the kids with us this time and booked a family room. They went all out! The kids had their own room adjoining ours with bunk beds made up with special linen, toys and little table in room! Beautiful!

Quick overnight work stay means you are often a relaxed about the little things. The hotel is a old remodeled building which makes it a little quirky.
