Great hotel situated near Manuka Oval

Hotel is in a great location. Spacious rooms and facilities. Downside being walls of each room too thin. Can hear phones ringing, people talking, bathroom noises etc. Wakeup call for guest two doors down heard distinctly at 5am.

One night stop-over on way to Sydney

We arrived late and were greeted by friendly staff. The room was lovely, clean and we slept really well. Location was great - we walked about in the morning and had a nice breakfast before heading on to Sydney.

Great place to stay for business

Very neat and comfortable hotel accommodation. The bar is a great place to catch an evening drink and quick meal at very good prices. Free WiFi was fast and reliable. The staff were very helpful and polite.
