There are many reviews here and all talk about the old rooms. Having stayed in both the renovated rooms and the old rooms as a regular guest I can fairly comment about what is and whats coming. The new rooms are small but immaculate- a total gut and refit with flat screen TV's and new beds. Currently only available on level 3 but more rooms on 1,2 and 3 are being done right now and should be available in the new year. Along with the foyer renovations that will men at least half the hotel will be renovated. The rest is not far away apparently from talking to the staff.
But the old rooms are OK too. Spotlessly clean and a little faded they still have big comfortable beds. The TV's could do with replacing- they really are hard to watch. But I guess there is no point changing them as the refits are coming. And the rates charged are very fair in comparison to the rest of Canberra. Its an expensive town and you'll be hard pressed to find cheaper this close to the city.
Parking is still a big issue- but there are plans to address this. All in all good value for money and friendly service
