My colleague and I recently stayed here for work. Don't be fooled by the aging exterior or the rattly old lifts. The rooms are comfortable, modern and well-appointed. There's not much close to the hotel itself but it does have a good restaurant and well-stocked breakfast buffet (with a hot breakfast option). I recommend booking the breakfast buffet online at the time of booking because you will receive a small discount.
I would certainly stay here again if I went to Canberra for business. It's well priced (for Canberra) and good quality. The only down side is that there aren't really any cafes, shops or restaurants nearby. The closest shop I found was a little suburban group of shops (including a small restaurant and cafe) 1.2km away. But, as I mentioned, the restaurant and breakfast buffet are good so you don't really need a shop.
