Staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Room was comfortable and clean. Great value for money with buffet breakfasts included each day. Located a moderate walk from Civic

24hr reception, friendly staff, excellent breakfast and clean room. Even with the ongoing renovations there were no issues. Have stayed with the kids before and it was just as good.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Rex. I was expecting a hotel that was well past its prime, and in truth it is a little tired. But if you can look past the slightly dated look you'll find a hotel that does the simple things very well. Comfy beds, Great location, Free parking, tasty fresh breakfast and friendly staff. For the price I don't think you'll find any better in the city. To summarise: If your in Canberra for a special occasion perhaps look elsewhere. But if your looking for comfort, value and a great location than this is the place!

Nice Hotel, shame the restuarant isn't open more for dinner as the food is fantastic as there is not alot of places to eat within walking distance

Paid $160: TV was analogue with reception only decent on 2 stations: have stated at cheaper places in Canberra with digital TVs. Breakfast buffet looked good, but food was luke warm (prob not within food safety guidelines) and coffee was tepid. Staff response was lacklustre - reception just told me that last time they got a coffee it was really hot, that didn't help me!

They are doing renovations and this is a great location and price. The beds are great and nice linen but the bathroom and shower needs work. Overall I would stay here again.

This Hotel is comfortable but old style and could do with some modernising in the rooms.

Very quiet in the rooms considering it is on Northbourne Avenue. Easy access to the driveway for entry to the motel plenty of onsite parking. Very helpful and friendly staff and the meals in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner were very nice and reasonably priced.

Reception friendly & welcoming. Dinner service a bit slow but we had an excellent "special" dinner with plenty of choice. Hope prices dont go up after refurbishing By the way,why are tomato & BBQ sauce with the fruit & muesli at breakfast ?

The room was good and spacious. The housekeeping was excellent could not be faulted. We spent 2 nights there and found it a great central location. The only down side was the restaurant not open on the weekends. The buffet breakfast was heavenly. We would certainly stay there again

I found the room clean with a pleasant outlook. At the Service Desk I was not given any information at all, just given a bill to sign. I don't think it would have taken more then 30 seconds to explain where the dining rooms were, what floor I was on, or if I needed a hand with my luggage. None of these questions were asked. I went to Canberra to work on Foreshore Festival, so when I booked in at 3.00pm I may not have looked the freshest, but I have walked into Sheraton On The Park in the same state and I was still treated like royalty, which made my experience there memorable for the right reasons. At no time did i wish to approach the Service Desk again at the Rex
