6/10 Good

A seriously budget hotel
This is a budget hotel and one needs to adjust expectations accordingly. But this is very seriously budget. However, the bed was small, soft but OK. The aircon was constantly noisy to maintain even a little heat in the Canberra winter. The shower, toilet, sink and desk space were all adequate. The floor was spartan. Lighting was incredibly basic. Very limited hanging space for clothes. No useful hooks. Nowhere to hang a damp towel. And it is a good distance from the centre so impractical if you need to return during the day. Also some distance from any eating places.

4/10 Fair

Staff were lovely but hotel is desperate. Shower and toilet in a weird little pod. Parents had an ‘accessible’ room which was the weirdest set up ever. Breakfast was expensive when you take into account what was on offer. Sorry to say would never stay there again.

2/10 Poor

The Rooms smelled like sewerage. The bathrooms are a glorified portaloo. The only thing worse than Canberra itself is this hotel.
