Great motel but NO wifi even though advertised.
Everything was good at this hotel BUT I am getting very tired of those hotels/motesl that advertise Wifi but is not useable when connecting. This is happening more and more. Either they should advertise and provide wifi or not advertise it at all. If they advertised wifi but cannot guarantee it they should say so. Motel itself was good BUT I am getting very tired of thosehotel and motel

Best for groups with own transport
For a large family like us, staying here is always the choice. We booked two large family cabins for our group of 20. Cabins are large enough to accommodate 10 people at a time with enough room to move around. Clean and comfortable. Grounds are spacious and quiet, away from the city. Best for groups on a budget who are in Canberra for the tourist attractions! Having your own car is amust though as it is a few kms from the town centre.
