Good location to access Canberra sights.
Posted Sep 5, 2016
The hotel is on a fairly main road which is a good road to branch off from to see the various well known sights in Canberra. Parking out the front is not accessible even though there are spots. They seem to be taken up with cabs and the cars that can't read the 'no parking' signs, but there is an underground valet parking carpark, albeit hard to find initially.
The room was nice, 2 queen beds that accommodated our family of 2 adults and 2 children (10 and 16 who were OK to share the bed). The hotel offered to bring up a trundle if the queen bed was going to cause problems with sharing and whilst the room would have been cosy, it would have fit easily. They don't offer a queen and two singles.
The buffet breakfast that was included in the room price was an awesome one. The staff were helpful and friendly. The newspapers were abundant and there was a great coffee machine that, with one push of a button, served mochas, cappuccinos and hot chocolate as well as normal coffee. The food selection was enormous with fruits, cereal and juice, toast, pancakes and muffins as well as a hot selection which included bacon, eggs, snags, mushroom, tomato, baked beans, Asian noodles and congee. The atmosphere is friendly and family friendly.
