Good place to stay in Canberra, pleasant area and close to desirable attractions including Manuka and Kingston. I would stay again. Contact with staff is minimal in this place but you are well informed in advance of entry conditions and other information.

Comfortable enough but a little bit old. The kitchenette was well equipped. The double bed sagged in the middle. There were fly screens but mosquitos got in through the pipes in the bathroom. Convenient location.

On first opening the door to the room I was greeted by some strange smell, not overpowering, but it was always present every time I came back to the room. The room was just a little too small, the bed too short, the taps in the bathroom were always leaking. The only redeeming features is that it was quiet and close to public transport, although you have to know which bus stop to use for each different time you travel.

It consisted of all the basic necessities for a short term stay. It should have supplied enough loo paper for the whole stay. The terms of cleaning on leaving and check out seemed a little over the top. $15 for every 15mins spend after 10am check out! The noise coming from the upstairs apartment was very loud as they would thump about. Very frustrating especially on a Saturday or Sunday morning or late at night.

Doors on units needed adjusting as the doors to units had to be slammed to close them. Not good when you are trying to sleep at 6AM & other people are slamming doors at that hour.

This accommodation will suit those who have a car and want to be close to Kingston and Manuka. Very comfortable for a short stay. The building is looking a bit tired but is very clean and easily accessible. Bed was good which is an essential aspect in assessing the quality of accommodation. Would certainly recommend to friends.

The only thing that desperately needs updating is the bathroom. It is not done to have a shower head over a bath tub that needs a step of about 40 cm. It's downright dangerous and impossible to use if you're not so agile anymore. I have sent an e-mail about this to Danele and got a prompt reply, which was very much appreciated..

"I really enjoyed my visit to Canberra and my accommodation was great"
06/30/15 towey10
I recently stayed with Canberra Short Term and Holiday Accommodation and enjoyed my stay. My partner and I stayed in a standard two bedroom unit which was excellent value for money. the location is very central and the unit had everything we needed.our stay was very comfortable and warm and the staff were helpful and pleasant. Il be recommending this to my family and friends that may visit canberra.

"Adequate"
03/27/15 Markos2012 Perth, Australia
I had 8 hours to get from the airport to the room and get some sleep before a very busy day. It would have been much easier if I had received the text giving me the address and details to access the room. This oversight was a problem I didn't need and the person at the end of the phone was abrupt; far less than pleasant. Fair enough it was late, though she wasn't the one paying the cab to meander aimlessly through the suburbs! The room itself (once I managed to get in) was adequate for the purpose and about right price wise. I am sure there is better service elsewhere.

"I liked it"
02/26/15 Anne W Sydney, Australia
had a 8 day stay in January and was very happy with the accommodation and the friendliness of the staff. Definitely would go back as I thought it was great value and close to Fyschwick where I was working. First time in Canberra and pleasantly surprised at how close everything was. Discovered Manuka which was a treat. Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which had everything which I required for cooking when I felt like it which was not to often after discovering Manuka restaurants.

We stayed over 3 weeks and our stay was excellent as we found all want we need as a family with young children. ..location was great as short drive to the city and walking distance to shops and more.. self contained facilities where great as we where able to make our own meals and very clean and lovely setting, very friendly staff and management too make a difference. Overall a good value for money and recommend to any one for short or long stay.

"A wonderful return"
05/26/14 314Jendom Brisbane, Australia
This was my second stay at this place and it was just as good if not better than my first.. Amazed that I was even remembered and was asked on booking if I would like a room on the same floor as before. The cleanliness of the accommodation was as good as before and this is one of the main criteria I look for in accommodation. Location was good for me as I was working at Fyshwick which was less than a 5 min drive and the restaurants in Manuka are great. Thanks to Haylie for organising my shopping for me prior to arrival. I would highly recommend this place

Fantastic value and great location. Unexpected stop over in Canberra ended up staying 4 nights once there found so much to do in Canberra. The accommodation was ideal with the self catering facilities being a great cost saver. The place was secure, comfortable and very well equipped. Special thank you to Saarah who provided us with all the info and local knowledge to make our stay very enjoyable.

"Best place to stay in Canberra"
03/25/14 Artak Z Canberra, Australia
We stayed at Canberra Short Term and Holiday Accommodation for around 30 days from December 2013 to January 2014. It became our first home in Australia. From the very first moment of booking till the last day of our stay we felt kind and warm hospitality towards us. The management of the hotel, in particular Ms. Saarah and Ms. Danny, were very welcome and ready to help with any issue within minutes. The room was clean (room N57) and comfortable, equipped with all the necessary things such as kitchenette, ironing board, iron, extra pillows, blankets and etc. There was a TV with popular channels and a built in DVD player as well. The hotel’s location is convenient. We used 2 bus routes to travel to all the required parts of Canberra – route number 200 going to Gungahlin via city center (the bus stop is located on the Canberra avenue, 4 minutes walking distance from the hotel) and route number 5 going to Woden (the bus stop is located on the Kootara Crescent, 3 minutes walking distance from the hotel). Being new in Australia, our first experience of living in this country was great! Thanks to Ms. Saarah, Ms. Danny and Canberra Short Term and Holiday Accommodation! If you are looking for a budget accommodation in Canberra do not go any further. Just book! Highly recommended!

"Budget accommodation not great"
03/21/14 Sharon H Jilliby
Stayed in a larger studio. On entering the building it smelt stale and looked like it needed a good vacuum.Not a good first impression. Our room had new furniture,however the carpet was worn and dirty. Bed spread a terrible brown nylon,however sheets and towels okay. Not at all like the picture on the internet. The bathroom smelt like drain and was so small you can hardly move to dry yourself. Goodness knows how a large person would manage. The toilet had poo splashed under the seat. Gross!! The kitchenette was clean and well stocked with crockery and cooking utensils, cleaning products. The air conditioner was not working properly and smelt sour after it was on for a while. Maybe we got an older room,as my daughter had stayed prior to us and said her room looked like the picture. So maybe a good idea to request a room that looks like the picture on the internet or one that has been renovated.

"Budget Accommodation at its best"
03/10/14 AtStarwood Sheffield, Australia
We stayed in a Larger Studio Unit at their Griffith location for three nights in February. During our stay Canberra was experiencing a heat wave and the air conditioner in our studio worked to perfection and we were very comfortable. There was also a wall fan and a good extraction fan in the bathroom. We booked via their internet site with no problems. Everything was confirmed with full details promptly. However, we did not receive an email prior to our leaving home giving security entrance details. This is necessary as no receptionist is on site. A quick phone call to Canberra Holiday Accommodation was responded to by full text instructions to our mobile so all was well. We were very happy with our unit (#53 at the end of C Block) on the first floor overlooking McMillan Crescent. The building public areas were clean and the corridors very spacious. We did not hear any neighbour or road noise. Our room had a double and a single bed, a tall drawer unit, a wardrobe with plenty of coat hangers and a bedside table with a reading lamp. The dining table sat three. The flat screen TV had good reception. There were three interesting paintings not your usual generic hotel art. The kitchen deserves special mention as it was very well equipped with china and cookware. There was two hot plates, an electric fry pan, toaster oven, microwave oven, fridge etc. Everything you might need should you wish to self-cater. The bathroom had a good supply of towels, plenty of storage and prompt hot water to the good shower from your own unit hot water cylinder. The balcony (south east aspect) had a pleasant outlook over trees to a church. There was a table with two chairs and an electric BBQ. The pool was a short walk across the car park and looked clean and inviting. This is well managed, quiet accommodation in an excellent location at a great rate.
