Comfortable but dated.
Booked in advance, accommodation was in a different building around the block from check-in. Signage to was difficult to find but we were provided with a map. Restaurant closed but take away food was available. Beds were comfortable and there was sufficient room in our two bedroom apartment, but it was very outdated and needed some upgrades. We are booked in again for return trip.

Quick visit to Canberra
The room was clean but pretty basic and old-fashioned, e.g. the main light in the room was a florescent plain tube. It is ok when you need a bed but not really if you need to spend more time in the room..

A nice and reasonable accommodation. I was woken up at 3 by the washing machine / dryer. It was torture for half an hour until it was in operation. We had Questacon & Corin Forest planned for the next day and then the drive back to Sydney too. Lack of sleep really didn’t help. Don’t book the ground floor if you can. The layer between the top and the ground floor must be very thin too.
