    Very nice for the price
    Very nice hotel, they have given the hotel a lodge feel. Water pressure in the shower was amazing.

    Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant meals were very tasty (breakfast and dinner). The cleaning of my room was haphazard with benches not being wiped down in the bathroom, nor toiletries replaced. However, I would stay there again, based on comfort, functionality and the friendly staff.

    Older structure that could use some updating. We had a suite which was very spacious. Could have used a microwave. Dinner menu limited but food was good and plentiful. 50% off happy hour! Scarlet in the restaurant/bar was great!

    A little Gem
    The hotel turned out to be well above our expectations. Staff were very friendly. Our room was much bigger than we had imagined and was more than adequate for us all. All the linen was clean. Secured free basement parking was the added bonus along with the free wifi. Kids loved the games/books area by the restaurant. The hotel is a bit dated but that nicely sets it apart from other decent hotels as it gives it that special wao factor. Outdoor pool was closed due to the weather and though there was a gym and sauna we didn't get to explore them. At least for next time we don't have to worry about finding a hotel when we are in Canberra next.
