Loved it, great first motel stay for the grandkids.

Had trouble with the TV but they went out of their way to fix the problem, the owner ended up fixing it. Lovely man, full of local info. Would stay again in a heartbeat. 

The Wifi was hard to navigate but I think it was more the nut behind the wheel than the service.

First time to Canberra and to Forrest hotel, will be back!

Did not know room came with kitchen, nice surprise! The washing and drying 2in1 machine was great for emergency laundry too. Another nice touch. Everything was sparkling clean, towels neatly stacked and ready. Kudos to the cleaning and room service crew.

Minor things- knives were a bit blunt. Icetray in freezer was not quite the right one.

Excellent Value

Great 2 bedroom apartment - modern and well equipped kitchen & bathroom. Comfy beds and nice linen. Great value for money. Was able to walk to Parliament House and also hired the tennis courts directly next door. In-house restaurant provided room service which was a nice bonus! Would stay again!

So Happy and Satisfied!

The apartment was clean and equipped with all the necessary items. Plenty of parking spaces were available near the apartment. Proximity to Manuka and Parliament house was a bonus!

Wonderful Experience, 10/10

Great location, picture perfect views, close to shops and restaurants. Clean, tidy, loads of space! Definitely returning! 

It took a long time to heat up, the aircon was barely noticeable, had to get extra blankets on the beds.

Very comfortable and the price was extremely good. Will be my choice next Canberra trip. 

Very clean both times I've travelled from Adelaide. Staff extremely friendly and very accessible for late arrival. I was also able to park my truck on-site.

Comfortable and Central

Great location central to everything...Manuka for breakfast was only four blocks away and few mins drive in any direction to sights, buildings, malls and food. Room had plenty of space and amenities. Staff were warm and helpful and restaurant though expensive for amount of food received made exceptional salt and pepper squid...best I've had in ages. Bathrooms are in awkward placement by front door and walkway out front.

"I was upgraded to a king bed and a newly renovated room which I think was renovated some time again. They did have some small bugs on the ceiling only in and around the small bathroom which I seen whilst showering. But it was comfortable we were only there to sleep."
