“Very average place”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

We stayed here for two nights this week. The positives about this place is it's location, close to shops and has a Tradies Club next door. Negatives are the beds are as hard as rock and so are the pillows!

Also the cleaning staff woke us up on both days at 8:30am continually knocking on our door to clean the room. Wouldn't recommend it because of the hard beds and pillows.

Stayed one night last night business trip with a spa room,after a 12 hour day got to the room,the room was very nice and had a spa. Decided to order room service- ordered 12 oyster kilpatrick ,bruschetta and salmon as a main with chips and salad.
What turned up to the room-6 oysters kilpatrick,a large plate of chips,no salad,over cooked salmon with prawns in mash potatoe which was very strange.
Breakfast - I ordered eggs benedict with hollandaise on the side as most places usually drown it in very fatty sauce,a coffee and also a takeaway coffee to get when I leave-quite simple again I thought. After I ordered I heard the cashier and cook laughing that I'd ordered the sauce on the side.the food turned up and was nice but no coffee to eat with and the takeaway coffee turned up 5 minutes after finishing my food and I needed to leave fast. Overall they need new staff with a new attitude . Also fix the wi fi on the 200 side of rooms.

Room Tip: Only one side of the buildings wi fi works

Currently staying here and even though work has paid for accommodation, they hold all the 3 nights accommodation plus $50 against my card. They need to give warning about this because not everyone would have that type of money spare. I won't be staying here again.

Stayed at Quest Dickson, for the reasons that I need accomm in Canberra and the hotel rated well on Trip Advisor. I wasn't disappointed. This hotel was in a good location, close (by car) to everything in Canberra. My 5yr old kid loved playing on the full sized vintage tram that's parked in the hotel lobby. Tried 'Tradies' for dinner one night - it wasnt bad. There are loads of other good restaurants near the hotel too.
Room was clean, spacious, well equipped. Parking is easy and onsite, and hotel room was very quiet. I would definitely return.

This was my 3rd stay in this hotel, and it is the one I choose when visiting Canberra whether for pleasure or not. The standard room is spacious with frig (no alcohol), kettle, toaster, microwave and crockery. The bed is quite comfortable and everything is clean. "Tradies" on the ground floor has a nice bistro with tasty and not expensive meals. Otherwise, the nearby Dickson shop area has a number of restaurants, Chinese, Thai, Indian, etc and a Woolworths.
The Canberra attractions (esp. Aust War Memorial) are only a short drive and the hotel is far enough off Northbourne Ave as not to have any traffic noise.

I had stayed here 18 months ago and was pleased the upkeep was still great. The room is clean, comfortable, good in size and a great bed. The room also contains a microwave which is not standard in most motels. The shower is a little cosy in size but very clean with good towelling. The rooms are detached from the club which assists in keeping the noise levels down. The restaurant is also detached from the room area. Being Canberra it is good value for money. Reception staff friendly and efficient.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the block furthest from reception.
