Average but worth it”

I chose this motel because of the restaurant however it wasnt open. I could (and did) order room service which costs around $6.00. (for the service) Food was good. The motel is aging and it shows with things like; haircracks in the sink, plaster patches not painted, power boards and cramped bedroom furniture. The blankets needed cleaning. Everything else was clean though. While helpful the receptionist staff were not friendly, not a smile between them. I had to borrow a USB charger (240 volt) from the desk because the one in my room wasnt working. The room is small and a little cramped but the bed was comfortable, the TV worked (no internet stations) the air-con worked and the motels free internet was good. Id stay here again.

A very pleasant stay and experience”

I recently needed to stay for a single night in Canberra and a friend was staying at Forrest Hotel and Apartments, so I just went ahead a booked a room also. The experience and stay was very good - the administration and contact with staff was pleasant, friendly and efficient. The room was quiet, peaceful and clean. Most certainly fit for purpose of sleeping well and having privacy and all that was needed for my brief stay. I would stay here again and I recommend this accomodation to anyone who needs a place to stay in Canberra.

We stayed in an apartment for 4 nights. Being from QLD, and in winter, we thought we would freeze. The room was very warm, and the bed had electric blankets and extra blankets. The room was lovely and clean, and only about 1km away from parliament house.

Great stay, friendly staff”

Welcoming reception staff. Great location for us for a local hospital appointment. Rooms are clean and cosy. Free parking a real bonus as most of the hotels in Canberra charge a fee. Would definitely recommend based on value for money and friendly staff.
