    Good

    Location

    Too much construction going on around the appartments, very noisy, We were unable to use the restaurant (couldn't fit a table for 2 in apparently), No room service (i.e no change of bedding or cleaning occoured during the stay)

  • 7.4

    Exceptional

    The room was very comfortable and excellent value. Even though the room did not have any towels and the kettle did not work, the staff were very responsive to supply towels and a working kettle.

    Maybe a check on towels and ensure the kettle works (we were not worried (see above), but other guests may be upset by this). Tthe tiles were a bit cold, therefore during winter it would be good to have some mats.

    Good

    The proximity to Parliament House and Manuka Shops

    We stayed at some old apartments which they have taken over called Albany Apartments. For those Australians who remember the TV show Prisoner - it looked like Wentworthville Detention Centre - bleak and ghetto. Inside was basic, yet comfortable and the heater worked as did the electric blankets. Overpriced but it's Canberra!

    Fabulous

    The Location was the best aspect, followed by comfort and value for money.

    Internet access should be offered free of charge based on the low cost of this service in Australia.

    The apartment was very clean. It was old but comfortable. The area is very quiet yet within close proximity of everything I wanted to do. I have no complaints.

    the room was clean

    The noise of the the cleaners early morning banging the door of the cleaning room next to the bedroom and The smell of oil frying from the restaurant also the Exhaust fan from the restaurant was right beside the bathroom window, so the noise was unbearable at night

    The Location

    We stayed in room No. 119. We were disappointed with the false advertising on the website with the look of the rooms in comparsion with what it ended up looking like. There was a cold draft coming under the door to the room (the couch to sit on was directly in front of the door) - Canberra winters are cold. Not value for money. No heater in the bathroom. The heating was insufficient. The restaurant was not open all weekend. Room service was not available all weekend. Getting luggage to and from the car was a challenge because the driveway was very narrow - if cars turned up behind you - it was very difficult. You had to drive around the block to get to your accommodation.

    Fabulous

    Excellent price ! We stayed in a 2 bdrm apartment for $159/night. The room was in the back of the hotel, but very new and clean.
