Pleasant Historic Hotel.

Posted Dec 16, 2014
Pros: Older style, warm and friendly.
Cons: The coffee in the breakfast room. Instant coffee in a packet? Not quite good enough I'm afraid.
Location: Nothing in Canberra is very far from anything else. I stayed in Braddon because I was attending a wedding there.
Checked in, booking was via Expedia and room rate very reasonable. However, I had requested 2 beds and the room I was given was little larger than a walk in wardrobe with one queen bed in it. I had to stand in the shower recess to shut the bathroom door. So, back down to reception, explained I was with my son and needed 2 beds. Had to pay a small per night upgrade but was given a new room, no fuss, the new room consisted of 2 rooms so I guess it was a suite really.

Old world charm

Posted Nov 7, 2014
Pros: The History of the building, the architecture..
Cons: Needs refurbishment in a sympathetic way,maintaining historic perspective but with a modern twist.. Could be a destination venue again.
Location: Easy walk to town centre. Close to tourist sites..
Enjoyed our room,centrally located,plenty of space. Enjoyed Juliette balcony opening on to courtyard.

Great Hotel and Great Room. Scored a free upgrade!

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Had a super late check in (1am) and the staff were very well accommodating and helpful throughout. The room was great, as was the location. The hotel design, being one of the first built in Canberra, is a little confusing to navigate, but other than that, it's a great place.

Bring your own mattress

Posted Oct 11, 2014
Pros: Friendly front desk staff and plenty of free parking.
Cons: Room was too small and poorly designed. Mattress was soft and lumpy.
Location: About 10 minutes walk from Canberra Centre so convenient to the city.
Very pleasant staff, particularly at the front desk. But the room was cramped, the mattress soft and lumpy, and the bathroom poorly designed. Parking was free and there was a lot of it. Kudos to staff who let me continue parking there for several hours after I checked out. Restaurant food choices were limited, not healthy and expensive.

Very disappointed on the paper thin walls and could hear next doors conversations, hearing them going to the toilet and showering. There was a constant leaking sound. We were a family of 4 and there was 3 towels, 2 knives and forks, 3 bowls. Friendly staff and grounds but disappointed on hotel
