    We have stayed here twice in the last couple of months. we avoided 'Boffins' this time as it is over-priced & you definitely do not get what you pay for. we ate at 'Fellows' which was very enjoyable & much better than 'Boffins'. The accommodation was clean, spacious & comfortable as usual.

    Good place to stay

    We stay here regularly as it is ideally situated for proximity to activities at ANU as well as close to town and is reasonably priced. Room comfortable and spacious. As always my complaint is always having two single beds rather than a shared bed plus the annoying heavy bathroom door which deliberately swings shut every time one goes in and out of it so filling up the kettle etc is more difficult than it needs to be. Our toilet was difficult to flush plus the tap handle for the shower came off in my hand when I showered. I reported these issues so hopefully they will get fixed. There isn't ever a power point at desk top level for the kettle so we always end up with it sitting down on the carpeted floor. I do think the management could supply an extension cord or improve the set up so that power points are available for use at desk top level. Bending down to floor level is a nuisance.and families with young children would need to be vigilant to prevent scalding injuries from boiling water.
