Good hotel for the south...

The room was well appointed & very clean but not overall roomy, I did have a couple of issues in a room & had to change rooms. Very obliging friendly team. Some areas e.g. curtains needed looking at but was very convenient to the Canberra hospital.

I chose the hotel mainly because it was available (attending a trade show during a Parliamentary sitting - not a wise idea!). However it turned out to be surprisingly easy to get to and from the city centre, and easy to get to from out of town (and to escape the city from at the end). Overall a quite convenient...

The hotel is 5 kilometers outside the city. This is a small two floor building (corridors are inside the building, unlike many BW hotels) based in a very quiet area. The hotel is quite modern. Within the room we saw a tear in the upholstery and some small stains on the carpet, but it sill looked luxurious. Upon online reservation...
