“Terrible awful and won't ever be back”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Bathroom walls are flacking paint. Telephone doesn't work and is above toilet. Bed was so hard I couldn't sleep in it. Breakfast was apparently included in the price but the restaurant was never open to get breakfast. Service desk didn't open until 2 which was very inconvenient to ask questions like why is the restaurant closed!. Overall very disappointed with this hotel

A good old style motel right in the Capital. Was quite impressed with the place. Room was very clean and well maintained and equipped. You can park under cover right at the door of your room which is great when you have luggage. There is sports ovals behind the motel and across the road if you feel energetic, we kicked the footy around for a bit? We walked to the Tradies Club where they have a great bistro. Heating is good in the room and there was electric blankets as well which we appreciated. I would definitely stay here next time we come thru Canberra.

This motel ticked all our boxes. Clean and tidy. Location is 10 out of 10 close to the city and restaurants and on the direct bus route to Belconnen. Few minutes walk to the restaurant mecca. Room is well equipped. Bed is comfortable. For the central location the room is very quiet and there is a green belt adjacent. Easy to find and access. Staff are extremely helpful. And of course the price is excellent. Would recommend. Pretty good.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are very comfortable and quiet

Not usually a fussy traveller, but this place was revolting!!! Specifically asked for late check in, as had driven from SA, office was closed when we got there. Someone came after 45 min wait. Had lost our booking. Have us a key to our room.... Already people in that room!!!!! Had to call the office staff BACK AGAIN!!! Finally got to our room, were given an "upgrade". Blood stained linen, mouse eaten and torn, dirty carpet. Mouldy shower.
Like I said, I'm not usually to fussy, but even this was too much!!!! My parents room was actually an OH&S nightmare!!! Paint bubbling and falling from the roof! Tiles chipped and left very sharp!
Don't stay here, even if on a budget, not worth it at all!!

I've stayed in a few hotels in my working life but this 1 would have to be the worst of all
Where do you start dirty mouldy paint falling off stained linen.
I got the feeling as I drove in that It's like a place for a quick 1 hour stay
Best part of this hotel if I could find any would have to be the driveway out of here
3 Star rating you have to be kidding me

OK, stayed here 2 nights as part of a sporting club trip to Canberra. Most other reviews talk about mould on the ceilings, stained carpets, wonky and noisy fridges etc. All very true. On the plus side, water pressure is good in the shower, linen was clean and rooms were serviced each day. Location is also central and convenient. The Ritz it ain't but you get what you pay for.

Excellent. After the long trip down from the sunshine state we really needed somewhere comfortable to stay and we were really happy with our choice. My cousin had recommended it after she stayed here on a hockey trip and she did well. Our room was a good size and though the furnishings are older it is well cared or and has a really comfortable feel to it. It was very clean. On the first night we slept for about 10 hours straight. The location is lovely within leafy reserve area and playing fields all around. The only noise you hear is the birds. Plenty of parking. Close to the city and other sites of interest. In all we stayed 5 nights and could happily have stayed longer. I'm sure we will be back. Great little place, keep up the good work.
