We first stayed here in 2015. Was towing a camper trailer and didn't feel like setting it up for 1 night. Staff were very accommodating and found room for our trailer. The rooms are very clean & tidy, and buffet breakfast was lovely. Have stayed a couple of times since then.

After a full day at work and the drive down from Sydney it is always nice to receive a warm welcome from Joe and Raelene at reception, even remembering which drink I like!. In the dining room Jessica always gives a welcome, and also knows that I like my sauce on the side. Not only is the Hotel clean, and...

Hotel is located a bit far from city and attractions. Breakfast is good however not much choice (variety) of food. Internet speed is good, staff is friendly, although small services of equipment need to be done. In general it is good value for money for short stay,

All round good hotel, clean and comfy one bed apartment (albeit a bit dark due to poor lighting). Staff were great - helpful and really friendly. Restaurant was great for both dinner and breakfast, also accommodating for our 11 mth old, inc. had high chairs. Location was great, close to Kingston Foreshore and most of the sites.

Reception staff were welcoming and provided fresh milk for our cup of tea. Buffet breakfast was good but had to wait a while for poached eggs. Good location not far from local shops and restaurants. Would stay here again next time we are in Canberra.

Very comfortable and clean room. Nice modern feel to the hotel and very good value. Free parking and far enough away from the main road to have a peaceful nights sleep. Plenty of choice for breakfast.
