4/5 Good

Sparkling budget buster
We stayed 3 nights and whilst we did not met Wendy instructions were given for check in and communication was easy. This is a bungalow/studio that was very roomy and a great alternative to a hotel room. At this budget price you get a very clean space with room to move and a warm comfortable setting. (Heating and electric blankets kept us warm in the Canberra winter) Bed was comfortable and the basic kitchen was a plus to be able to self cater breakfast. Location is not what I would consider central as described in the description. It is on the outskirts but as mentioned everything is 10-15 minutes drive away in Canberra. Whilst not central the best part of the location and this made it ideal for us is that it is less than 5 minutes walk to the tram. This is two stops away to Dickson- which is full of restaurants and a supermarket. The tram also takes you straight to the city centre. Max time between service is 15 minutes. Since off street parking is provided on the premises, the tram is a great option as it’s easy and nearly everywhere in Canberra costs $$ to park. The only surprise here was that the description mentioned breakfast provisions. This was not enough of anything and was a little weird. It consisted of some sachets of jam, a small amount of vegemite in an open jar, some honey, 2 coffee pods and several UHT milk caps. This meant that we headed out upon arrival to ensure we got some bread, instant coffee, marg/butter and fresh milk. So breakfast provisions mentioned is a loose term. For the price of our stay though we cannot really complain. On the upside, a bottle of wine and a couple of chocolates were a welcome touch. Would we return, yes we would, this ended up being a FAB accomodation option at a brilliant price.

5/5 Excellent

Great place, great location and great host!
