We just spent an amazing weekend at The Carrington, celebrating a reunion with friends. We were all young adults in '80s Canberra and experienced The Carrington in its glamorous heyday. I am thrilled to report the beauty is back. Edwina the manager was so welcoming and ensured our weekend was perfect. We had dinner at The Wintergarden restaurant, stunningly decorated,... More

Well equipped room with small kitchenette and full size bath. A peaceful and calm atmosphere with great facilities and a nice manager. Safe and handy parking with easy access to Canberra, Goulburn or the South Coast of NSW.

A lovely old worldly inn with traditional style food and service. Delightful ambience. We had a lovely meal. Lamb shank, gnocchi and mutton stew which was tender and delicious. Located in the centre of Bungendore the Carrington Inn offers a delightful luncheon menu. Recommended.

We stayed overnight after a night out at Le Tres Bon, a local restaurant, rather than drive home after our anniversary dinner. Large room, good shower. Heater was on when we arrived, making the room welcoming and warm.

We stayed here for 1 night. The motel is very quiet with beautiful well lit gardens. The motel restaurant wasn't open during our stay but it is only a short walk to the other restaurants/pubs. The staff were very helpful and the spa room was very clean.

We had a great stay in a family room at The Carrington. Great sized room with courtyard which would be brilliant in the warmer months.

Thank you Ms K. Very kind of you to take the time to review. Your suggestion of drawers for the family to unpack is a very good suggestion and we will take action on it.

Stayed for 2 nights at The Carrington Inn. The staff was so friendly and hospitable. The gardens are beautiful and being so close to the delightful town made the get away from city hustle and bustle so much more enjoyable.

We really enjoyed our three night stay at the Carrington Inn. The room was spacious and comfortable and the staff very friendly and keen to help.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Established in 1885, The Carrington Inn has enjoyed a colourful and adventurous life. Initially a coaching inn for travellers on the Cobb & Co route the Carrington has in its century and a half existence, also been a general store and a private residence. In the 1980's it was lovingly restored as the Inn's warm and hospitable dining restaurant and the cornerstone to our good conference and accommodation facilities on the five acre property. We are very proud to offer the Carrington to you as a homely place to celebrate, relax, unwind, or stay. Our specialty is to cater for meetings and celebrations of between 15 and 60 people. The Carrington Inn environment is perfect for events where it is important to stay focused and not distracted by external noise, intrusiveness, or unpleasantness. The Inn is a foundation piece of Bungendore, a thriving country town with good food, boutique shops, arts, crafts, and Australian heritage. It's a small town and easy to get around on foot, while being welcomed everywhere you go. The Carrington Inn is just 20 minutes by car from Parliament House and 25 minutes from Canberra International Airport. It is beautifully located so as to enjoy the museums and culture of our national capital, the wineries and crafts of the region, while having a base that is comfortable, safe and hospitable. It is the perfect staging post for adventures in the cool climate wine country of the Southern Tablelands, or trips to the coast (90 minutes - East), or the snow (3 hours - South). The Carrington Inn has 26 well-appointed rooms each with kitchenette, air conditioning, flat screen television, and WiFi. Many of our rooms have private gardens and some have relaxing spa baths. Off-street parking is free. All our buildings and gardens support disabled access. PLEASE NOTE: OUR RESTAURANT IS CURRENTLY UNDERGOING REFURBISHMENT and is closed. It will reopen with an exciting new menu and decor later in the year. In the meantime, there are other lovely local restaurants and cafes who will treat Carrington Inn guests as we would ourselves. ... more   less
