Away with Friends

We had a 2 room apartment shared by two couples and located in the older red brick buildings at the rear of the main complex. Found it had all what we needed being well located, clean and reasonably equipped. Great shared BBQ area in the courtyard (though we did not use), undercover parking. Who needs 4 Star when you can stay here at a very reasonable cost. Close to everything, easy to find

very helpful staff, good value

We arrived at the hotel just before midnight, the night manager was very welcoming and accommodating, who helped us finding a secure place to park our car with a big trailer. apart from the air conditioning was a little noisy, the room was cleaning and comfortable.

friends getaway

A very good hotel in a good location to a lot of Canberra attractions.Staff were helpful and as we had 4 rooms there was room for all of us to sit outside all together. You may not be able to park outside your room but there is ample parking.

Great breakfast but poor room cleaning

The breakfast is extremely good but very disappointed with cleaning staff. Check that used wet towels are replaced. Ours were put back as new clean ones. This act spoilt our stay.

Good value

Excellent location for southside of Lake activities. Staff helpful in mailing item left behind. Car spaces need to be marked with room numbers to avoid situation of first in best dressed leaving later arrivals no parking places near room.

Pleasant stay

We were disappointed not to have access to the restaurant for dinner until 7.30 pm the five nights we were there so we did not eat there. Bus loads of people were given priority.
