"Ibis Styles, Narrabundah"
The room was basic, but good enough for the cost. It was quite clean on our arrival, but it was not cleaned very well on our second day. The food was reasonable, but the dining room was understaffed. The person in attendance was run off his feet on both nights of our stay, but he did an excellent job. We normally stay closer into town, but we would […] stay there again as it suits our purpose as far as location and budget goes. We would recommend it to others with a warning that it is not a first rate hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"IBIS and Expedia - shameful - Never Again!"
I have never stayed in a more ill-kept, smelly and overall disappointing hotel in my long professional travelling life. The owners of this hotel should be ashamed. Rarely does a hotel "smell" well -this one does. The advertising - lovely room - see the glistening pool - gets you a room facing generally the back of the hotel featuring a car park from […] the 50's unsealed and a major dumpster. The pool, well that is old, pretty much invisible from anywhere other than the lobby. Interesting is the feature small pool with the art fountain. Nice if you like mold, mess and a non existent gardener. I attempted to cancel my 2nd night reservation - trust Expedia - no help, non-incountry call center put me on hold - twice! and well, lets say they forgot to get back to me as they were "busy helping other clients, just like me" So no more IBIS, no more expedia - very disappointing.

Rooms in need of renovations e.g curtains falling off hooks, stained carpets, security doors don't close properly. Bathroom, beds and free breakfast good. OK for the price paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
comfortable and the staff were pleasant. The restaurant was over priced and it was not near any other shopsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room had been refurbished and was very comfortable, only down side was the liquid soap - poor quality and difficult to extract. I prefer real soap..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very accommodating staff. Comfortable room even though hotel on the older side. Neat & clean. Breakfast was included and very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"My stay in ibis Styles Canberra Narrabundah"
I found the check in was great. Room and it's facilities good. Access to shower was not easy. Shower was over bath, however one could not reach taps to turn them on unless you were standing in the bath. This meant you were showered with cold water. If the opening of the sliding screen door was changed this would not happen. This would not be easy as […] the toilet is down that end of the shower. The taps need to be placed in a different position. I had trouble with the electronic entry tag. It didn't work properly. When I tried to access the main entrance to get assistance at 8.30 pm at night. The main front door would not open from the outside. The premises was in great order and the staff were excellent.

Service good, I found the bed a bit hardGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This venue has the potential to be good, however it lacks staff cohesion and enthusiasm. Service was adequate, but lacklustre and there was no hint of the desire to help. Stains on the carpets in more than one room are not the best welcome.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We found our room to be quite spacious.The security for the building was good as you needed two keys( one for the building and one for your room) .Our room was clean and comfortable, and bathroom was good but only thing wrong in bathroom was the shower head, it was a bit low and small,great as a massage on the shoulders though.Would stay there agai […] n.

"IBIS RATED 3"
We stayed in Room 613 which was right near Reception. Everyone that passed by made alot of noise and the noise from Reception and dining room kept us awake. The showers were cold and the Room Service was served in a paper bag with cardboard containers and plastic knives and forks. DISGUSTING..... Very disappointing on the Room Service front...meals […] were very overpriced for the quality and quantity. No choice in A-La-Carte Menu for breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
all good, but toilet tissue sheets in the bathroom ...? Really?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very dissapointed with hotel restaurant. Very expensive for very average food. Breakfast ok though we discovered that if we had have booked direct with the hotel, once breakfast was included, we would have been better off financially.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Average Hotel - room service disaster"
Booked this Hotel by looking on the website, it appeared to be a large Hotel with great amenities on the internet. However, it is quite an old Hotel (formerly the Heritage Hotel) with a group of units attached to the back. The unit allocated to me was right at the back which mean't that l needed to walk through the parking areas and road to reach the […] unit. Not pleasant when you are a woman on her own. The room itself was painted brick walls, however it had been very nicely redecorated and the bathroom had received a total makeover. It was quite lovely. The room service menu was quite revolting. I had delivered a pizza through room service which appeared to be a frozen pizza heated and a bottle of wine. $55.00 for this. Seemed a lot for the quality. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Canberra Meetings on behalf of the AAvHF"
Hectic but successful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and cheap"
An aging hotel in a semi-rural setting. The premises are ground and first floor, with stairs only. It is efficient, functional, clean and has an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and conference facilities. Stayed 4 nights in March 2013. The room was spacious, with a larger than average hotel refrigerator (no bar stock). There was plentiful tea, coffee, […] long life milk and a bottle of water each per day. The heating/cooling system was quiet and efficient. The groundfloor room and large, re-furbished bathroom was set up to allow for wheelchair access. The room lighting was adequate with reading lights at the bedside. The carpet was very stained. Off street parking is plentiful and free. The hotel is situated about ten minutes from the City Centre and attractions around the city. It is advisable to have a car as transport is limited and there are no shops or facilities nearby. The price was very competative. There is a sitting area, bar and combined dining/breakfast area at the front of the complex. The downside to this accommodation was noise. Not traffic but doors banging early morning (5.00a.m.) and night. There are external doors to get into each wing and the door to your room and they are very noisy and every one 'bangs' shut. There was also a loud 'water dripping' noise heard over our bedhead and seemed to be coming from the floor above. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is a good place to stay - the only issue I had was that the TV did not work on local stations and I could not watch the Local or International News. THe hotel was full when we were there and you really did not notice they handled to crowd well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ibis Style Hotel Three Star"
Hotel was ok, probably rate this as a three star hotel. Shorthanded on staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay!"
Very convenient, clean and tidy. Great breakfast! A little noisy when people enter the common areas to get to rooms but overall we had a great stay! We would definitely stay here again :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"4 Star ? Nope"
This is rated 4 star - not in my view The furniture is dated Breakfast was so busy the overflow was across the pool area in a dated conference room with plastic cups for juice and paper coffee mugs. Coffee was in an urn Furnishings were grey and 1970s Cost was $160 including an ordinary breakfast Won't be backGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good overall with nice people"
Reception staff were excerllent, Room is clean. Breakfast is Good. The only drawback Was that one of the lamp wasn't working, but they couldn't even change it straight away. It was a lamp only, you don't have to ask your guest wait for a technician to come and fix it tommorrow.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Value accommodation .for car travellers"
Pleasant, venues within easy reach. Room clean and pleasant with minor shortcomings-central ceiling light not functioning and not replacable replacable same day. Second breakfast room, to which we were directed not up to standard-. no tablecloths, rotary toaster not toasting properly- more like a business workingb session environment.. Parking good.. Nevertheless, […] staff excellent and overall value for money Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good honest value"
I can recommend this hotel. My wife & I stayed for 2 nights in March '13. It's more motel-like in style, so you can park close (and free) to your room. There are many rooms so it can feel as though you are one of many. The room was fine; modern art on the wall and had a new bathroom which had high quality fittings. The bed linen was of excellent quality. […] The overall experience was good, though the free wi-fi signal strength was low and the connection a bit quirky (however Telstra's Mobile signal was excellent). We didn't use the hotel's restaurent. Instead, we found excellent choice & value at a suburb 5 mins drive North (Bougainville St, Manuka) where there were over 10 great restaurants to pick from, inc McDonalds! The view from the room was what you'd expect for a hotel located in a quiet city suburb. So, overall, a good experience if you have a car and what you want is a decent, clean room and a good night's sleep. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A good budget experience"
My stay was for one night and overall the room was OK but it was a bit smelly- either form the carpet cleaning fluid or the odd smell from the bathroom, the fan in the bathroom was really noisy and had to be used with light.Genuine Expedia guest review
"hotel with motel standard"
We booked a standard room but to our surprise the room is like a motel rather than a hotel. Carpet is a bit smelly. Bed is a but old and need to be changed. Bfast is very standard. But we cant complain because the price is good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was expecting a little more from a 4 star hotel it reminded me of the dormitory blocks at UNE where the students reside. The decor in the rooms was okay however the paintings and beheads are cheap. When we returned to our room it smelt of sewerage and the area where we had to park was scary. It was poorly lit and full of pot holes. The breakfast room […] was very ordinary. The window over looking the pool looked like a misty film was on it and the table and chairs in the breakfast area need updating. The art on the walls looked like it was purchased from coper art. The receptionist was very helpful she moved us to another room and the breakfast was good. We got lost as the signage to the hotel is misleading we ended up in Narrundah shops we were lucky to escape from there unharmed it was like stumling into the back streets of the bronx as it turns out the hotel was only a short distance from these shops no one knew where the hotel was . Goyder is not the easiest street to find. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fantastic value for money"
This hotel is fantastic value for money. After browsing sooo many Canberra hotels and otehr accommodation, booking and canelling two, we finally found this one at such a great price. We thought there would be something wrong. There wasn't. Noisy guests in the middle of the night, but so the sound proofing's not great. Has to be something at this price. […] Even an excellent continental breakfast included. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ibis Styles Hotel Canberra"
Basic, but quite acceptable. Good value for money.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were very pleased with the hotel. It was great value and the breakfast included was really good. The bathroom was renovated and modern. The lovely thick towels, large TV screen, very comfortable bed and decent sized frig were all appreciated.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but pictures misleading"
I mostly enjoyed my stay at the Ibis Styles in Canberra and the few staff were great but the pictures are misleading. You arrive thinking you've booked a normal hotel only to find yourself in small brick motel blocks with minimal staffing. I work in TV but even I could not imagine what lens the hotel had used to make its pool look so vast and the building […] behind it gleaming and modern. In fact the pool is small without normal poolside facilties (just upright chairs) and the building behind is squat and brick. You're warned there's no-one on reception at night. That's fine but what they don't say is that sometimes no-one is on duty by day either. I had people phoning me who could not get through for more than an hour because neither the switchboard nor the reservations number was answered. My room was spotless and the bed comfortable with nice tea/coffee facilities but it looked onto a back alley. AC and shower were unusually good though no bathtub. Breakfast was fine but they don't offer lunch and the buffet dinner was expensive at $28 considering that the main dish every day was the same - rather dire pasta. You could have meat or fish but at a price. I guess prices reflect the fact that without a car you have no choice. A taxi to the nearest restaurant would have doubled the price. Helpful as they were and though I was happy with my room, I wouldn't stay there again because I resent a hotel using misleading pictures, even unintentionally.

"A Good Experience"
Despite some room renovations this hotel made our brief stay in Canberra an enjoyable one. Clean modernised room, ample parking, extremely helpful wait staff and a very substantial morning breakfast. A good choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"GREAT VALUE IN THE CAPITAL"
While the hotel is on the fringe if Canberra in the suburbs, it is easy to get to with just a scant knowledge of Canberra's road system. The rooms are clean, simple and of good value and if you get a breakfast included the value is very goodGenuine Expedia guest review
Ibis Styles is very convenient if you need to stay on the southern side of Canberra.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel did everything that was expected, plus it was clean and beds were comfortable. Not mentioned by anyone is it that backs onto Capital Golf course and has a driving range nearby, which is a bonus for those into golf! It is located in a way that you would want a car to get around. However I'd apply that to Canberra in general...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Need a car to get around"
This property currently appears to be under renovation. Somethings looked old and tired and others completely brand new. (our ensuite) Breakfast was overcrowded and staff could not keep up with the demand for food. There is nothing close by to walk to, shops etc. so a car is definitely needed. Rooms were quiet, however, housekeeping left a bit to be […] desired with hallways/entrances needing a good sweep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for young families."
Nice hotel for young families during summer. The pool was clean and my boys used it all afternoon. No joining rooms so we all slept in the one room which had two double beds. My kids are still young enough to share a bed but it might be a problem in a few years. We did not have a balcony, so the adults retired at the same time as the kids. Complimentary […] upgrade on the breakfast was a nice touch and appreciated. A gps in your car is necessary as it is easy to get lost in Canberra suburbs. Free parking and quiet.

"Just about makes it as a great place for the money"
A little tired, but generally comfortable for the price. Staff great. Dining in? Breakfast upgrade is good value. Diner is another story. Eat your own arm before you order the chicken casserole. The place was full, so what do I know.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quality room - bigger than average"
We had two rooms for 6 adults. One was slightly wider than the other which made it feel really roomy but even the smaller room was slightly larger than standard. The rooms were exceptionally clean with modern facilities and quality finishes. The continental breakfast which was included was a nice bonus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and Quiet"
Great . Clean and Quiet . Affordable. Friendly staff Close to Manuka to grab a biteGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great night sleep but need a car...."
This was a very nice hotel. It was not near the University which is where we were meeting so a car was necessary. However, parking was free, breakfast was nicer than normal, and bed was good. After 10 days on the road, this was the nicest hotel and lowered my stress level.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
