4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Good value for a large family (7 of us) Not far from most attractions in Canberra. Self contained kept the costs down and shops were not too far away. Good parking. Twin shower great when bathing little ones. Little bit cramped for 7 but you don't spend much time there anyway so not really a problem. Area was quiet at night. Only small criticism, kitchen needed a few items e.g plastic bowls, plates and cups (Ikea type) New toaster as it didn't fit in bread slices and a 4 slice one would be great) Knives needed sharpening. Linen was plentiful and clean. Overall we were happy with our accommodation and will stay again on our next visit to Canberra
