Weekend visit to Canberra

We travel to Canberra for weekends 2-3 times a year and stay somewhere different each time, mostly staying in hotels.But next visit we will stay at the Best Western Motel Monaro for sure. Its in easy walking distance to the Kingston shops and restaurants and also lake Burley Griffin. Our room was clean,the bed was great and the shower was very good, lots of pressure. The air conditioner was easy to operate and worked very well, there was also a louver window above the door for fresh air which we liked.The tariff was very good value we thought.

A very pleasant stay

Although I stayed only one night, I found the room very comfortable and clean. Everything in the room worked well, and the shower had a good strong hot water supply. The lady owner was very helpful about the local area and in particular the restaurants. I chose this property originally due to its proximity to the Canberra Railway Station, about a half kilometre flat walk. The motel offers a full room service breakfast option as well as a $9.90 continental breakfast delivered to your room during the evening to allow for very early departures. I will happily stay here in any future trips to Canberra.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a handy back gate operated by the room key which opens to the Kingston Shopping Centre. There is a wide variety of cafes and restaurants within the centre, and I was very happy with my meal at the Kennedy Room.

We arrived late and arrangements

We arrived late and arrangements for the key had been made. Polite and efficient staff were available through the day time. The price was excellent comparatively within the area. & the room was spottlessly clean. These things helped make our weekend away just perfect!!

The service at the motel was very

The service at the motel was very good and the staff were eager to please. The only thing I would say is that it was a bit noisy but I understand you can't keep places quiet like that with guests coming and going at all hours of the night. This is just a comment, not a complaint. I was impressed with the hotel and the assistance given.
