“What a wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We arrived after closing time but they were still up and made it easy for us to checkin. Bent over backwards, nothing was too much of a problem, and one of the most hospitable hotels we have been to. The design of the rooms, however, is not enough for 3 people.

Room Tip: Beware that 3 floors and no lifts exist, so if disabled, you need a bottom floor.

This was a good place to stay, we slept well, the welcome was awesome, a lovely lady from our home country, treated us like family!! Even though it was on the main route into Canberra from the North, it was so quiet!! Clean tidy. great.

Staff here are very friendly & helpful. Cleanliness A++. Glad to see that this Ibis Budget actually clean their rooms properly. Bed was comfy nd linen lovely nd clean.
Is on the main road but is not affected by traffic noise.
This accommodation however is on the outskirts of Canberra but this suited us as we came in from Sydney end.

Room Tip: No lifts here

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. It was EXTREMELY quiet, which was lovely. The air con worked well and kept the room at ambient temp. The beds were very roomy and comfortable. The sheets were very crisp and clean. Towels were replaced daily and were fluffy. The shower had excellent pressure and always gave hot water. A bath mat would have been good .The staff were very friendly and helpful.

A few clothes hooks around the walls would have helped us keep our clothes off the floor and from being crushed in our bags. A common room with bar fridge and tea/coffee facilities would have been a nice addition, as rooms are very small and there is nowhere to sit but on the bed.
