Rooms are dated but if you can overlook, great value for money. Also found the staff exceptionally helpful, had one issue where head of maintenance spent nearly hour going above and beyond when providing assistance. Pool and gym though don't expect to get a challenging workout done. Family friendly, convenient location. Free internet with inbuilt family mode, but whomever set...

This was my second stay in three weeks. I was impressed the first visit, hence the second stay. I really appreciated the safe underground car parking. The indoor pool was the perfect temperature for an after National Gallery visit. My husband said it was difficult to decide on which of the many restaurants in Dickson to choose from, but all...

We only stayed for the one night, and there was comfort in knowing that the car park was secure in the basement with security key card access. This is my second stay in this hotel and it does need a bit of renovation. There was a strong smell of chlorine upon entering the bedroom which emanated from the bathroom. A...

I had an apartment room which included a good-sized lounge/dining area and well-equipped kitchenette, bedroom with a comfortable king-sized bed and bathroom/laundry with washing machine and sink. The décor is definitely dated but generally clean, except for the carpet which is stained and needs to be replaced. The hotel is located in Dickson, on the north side of the city,...

We stayed in a so called 3 room Apartment, what a joke, it is only "ONE ROOM" with a cupboard between the king size bed and single bed, the carpet was so filthy walls and dust on vent in bathroom was so think it was falling off it, although the staff were nice, but the service part of the apartment...

Stayed in Canberra for a fortnight in various hotels. This sadly came last. The positives are nice witty staff. Good work in a trying environment. The negative - the room - oh the room. What were they thinking. Really words cant describe the basic nature of the room. The blandness.The sloppy maintenance. The outdated decor. The utilitarian bathroom. Everything (Except...

Reception staff welcoming and check in quick and fuss free. Room was clean with excellent amenities, appreciated the washing machine and the kitchen facilities were good. Access to free wifi was a definite plus and log in simple. Overall a quiet, well equipped and extremely convenient place to stay.

The apartments are plain but meet all needs, and for the price are good value. Spacious, clean, quiet, bed comfortable, covered car park (free), wifi (free, sometimes a little slow). Microwave, kettle, toaster. No microwave dishes other than serving dishes...we always travel with one glass bowl to use in microwaves, so no problem for us, but be aware. Crockery and...

My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment for 2 nights. The room was spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. Secure underground parking is included. We had everything we needed including a washing machine and dishwasher. The staff were friendly and helpful. We noticed a leak in both the washing machine and dishwasher which were fixed immediately by the...

We only stayed here for a night and one night was enough!! After a very rude and unwelcoming arrival from the Manager (we accessed the car park entrance without checking in first)... we checked into the 3 bedroom family room. The room was spacious, the indoor pool was warm and fairly big for a hotel pool. Unfortunately the bathroom was...
