Reasonably priced, clean unit
Unit was smallish. No washer dryer or dishwasher. Other units had been remodeled with these items added, so this one may e in line for the addition.

Nice stay, close to parliament.
Well-loved but clean and spacious apartment. Kitchen well equipped, with a little instant espresso maker. Quiet, laundry in apartment unit, short walk to shops and parliament building. Plenty of parking.

All the details right..just not near other retail.
This place has all the amenities one expects in a business hotel plus a good on site restaurant/bar. Conveniently located near the central government offices, there is a lack of other retail, like restaurants or stores, nearby. The room with its queen bed, table and chairs seemed a little tight to move around, but was clean and comfy. Great value for the price. Overall thumbs up.

Just a room to stay in
Used the Forrest because it was close to home whilst we packed up house and cleaned. Hotel is quite old and dated. Also found the beds and pillows to be rather uncomfortable. Location was convenient and the pricing reasonable.
