Nice Canberra hotel - good value
Nice, seemed relatively new hotel, well located near the Press Club. Easy walk to old parliament house where the balloons launched. Good bar with snacks that is well patronised. Reception was large but only one person working. Outstanding gym facility. Unlike many rooms still provided a mini bar

Modern, luxurious, excellent breakfast!
Amazing modern, luxurious hotel in the heart of Barton. We had a little family staycation on New Years Eve and had a great experience at the hotel. Check-in was smooth, room was large, and Breakfast was delicious and offered a large selection! Highly recommended.

Nice room, Service could be better
The room itself was clean and comfortable. The tablet system was a great idea and seemed to be a convenience however I had to place three orders for items and call reception before I actually received any of the items requested. I was also told that housekeeping would be delivering an item but on discussing it with the housekeeping team, they had not been advised. We also cancelled a room service order but the order still turned up. There seems to be a need to increase the communication between teams to ensure that any requests from guests are fulfilled. The last issue that we had was that the lift/foyer area on level 3 had a rather strong smell of a garbage dumpster. This was advised to reception on multiple occasions. The restaurant was good but the drinks that I purchased were inconsistently made.

great hotel, not great service
A great hotel, great breakfast, good location comfortable beds and rooms. However the service was poor. Breakfast staff would take plates with food on them away every time you got up to get newspaper or drink etc it was so wasteful and frustrating! We asked several times for them to please leave them. In the room they had wastefully put one glass and one cup in the dishwasher cycle! Calling room service for afternoon tea at 3.30pm was impossible and the girl was very unhelpful, so we went to East Hotel to get a lovely afternoon tea. We have stayed with this hotel group for years but unfortunately now we will stay elsewhere because we didnt enjoy it because of the young unskilled unfriendly staff. Just simple manners like smiling and eye contact at front desk would be advantageous for your hotel.
