Family holiday

Clean, basic, tidy rooms. Kitchen catered for 6. One aircon for whole unit could make it hot in summer - were able to open windows which helped. Good for what we wanted - somewhere to sleep and do washing. Good sized BBQ area. Good sized lounge. Pod coffee maker a bonus! Was close to Parliament area. Civic about 5 minutes drive. Supermarket and shops/restaurants/cafes 5 minutes walk away.

Need to book dining especially in Civic as all busy. Main attractions good to do on weekdays as extra busy on weekends.

enjoyed the stay

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, everything was as described. Great location, comfortable, quiet and roomy. Staff were very helpful. Only two criticisms are that the sheets felt old (but were clean) and toilet and shower doors had frosted glass windows without curtains/blinds. Overall enjoyed the visit and would stay again.

school reunion

location was perfect to attend reunion and easy to find for an out of towner like me using maps not a GPS. Was excellent access to reunion venue at Royal Canberra Golf Club. Enjoyed the practicality of the room. Old building but quite nicely set up. Lovely quiet street outlook and peaceful. Great for a base for holiday to Canberra, central to many places of interest and good restaurants very close.

Visiting family in Canberra

Forrest Hotel was certainly a disapointment- we would rate it as "basic".- minimal conveniences & amenities. . Problems encountered........ Very poor lighting in small units - lampshades with broken liners - diningroom not open one night due to 2 coaches - a request for ' mortein ' to fix fleas / mosquitoes was an ungracious difficulty to supply - chipped cups in diningroom. On the middle day of our stay on returning @ 6.0pm to find our room had not been cleaned or bed made up .Reception advised us that housekeeping went home at @2.pm-alternative - "do it yourself "! no apology or assistance offered.I later spoke with the ownerwho apologised when I expressed my annoyance. we felt some compensation could have been offered- it later transpired that the owner was a friend of our daughter"s. so we did not press the matter.It is unlikley that we would be booking there again.

Clean and comfortable

Great location. Spotless throughout. Bathroom and laundry were dated, otherwise the apartment was comfortable. We would stay there again for the right price.
