Good value for was paid but not 4* service levels.”

Excellent location, spacious and comfortable rooms, lovely hotel reception floor and enjoyed evening meal BUT

we only paid per night for 2 superior rooms so it was excellent value. i regularly stay in canberra as i work in parliament and it is clear this hotel is trying to save on costs. although the room and bathroom was very spacious and comfortable there were definite signs of ageing as well as wear and tear such as cracks on the fittings. - lack of towels. - water was barely warm enough to shower in in the morning. - poor room service food despite having a good restaurant called the fig tree. - when we asked for a cot as we have a three year old, reception said that there were only 2 staff working and that he would try to bring it up within the hour. - when we asked how to order an in-house movie at 8pm, we were told someone would be available to show us in the morning (which is when we were checking out!) its sister hotel at the rydges lakeside offers much better service and staffing and is currently being refurbished. perhaps rydges is planning to also refurbish this one soon or even sell this rydges hotel, which would explain why it isn't currently investing to keep this hotel up to date or in its service and staffing levels.

Very nice hotel, nice room, and friendly staf”

good, reasonably priced breakfast, very nice room with all the little touches that make a pleasant stay.

24hr reception was great for my late arrival. clean and comfortable room with all necessities. friendly staff and easy checkin. buffet breakfast was reasonably priced, plentiful with a large variety of food, very enjoyable and popular with guests. the hotel is a 20 min walk to national portrait gallery and national library. easy walking to attractions, bus system difficult without knowing the names of areas well however, everything is very close so its inexpensive to travel by taxi if walking is not an option. quick taxi ride to canberra centre the main shopping centre.

Good location”

A great location at Capital Hill with good public transport connections. Very comfortable beds and quiet rooms. No luxury giveaways like slippers but basic necessities. Friendly helpful staff. Good buffet breakfast. Not sure how a disabled person in a wheelchair would fair as bench heights were very high. Maybe there are other room options that would be more suitable.
