If you have a car and you aren't looking for something luxurious, this is a great place to stay for the price. Short drive to Questacon, the zoo, War Memorial and the Wig & Pen. But then again, everywhere in Canberra is a short drive away! Therefore if you have a car, why wouldn't you stay somewhere really cheap as...

We stopped over Canberra for an overnight stay on the way to Perisher. We have stayed at a number of Ibis Budget (Coffs Harbour, Enfield, Campbellfield, formerly Hotel Formula 1) and I must say that this is by far the best of the ones we have stayed, in terms of room size and amenities. We were pleasantly surprised that the...

Good stop over if you have an early appointment in Canberra and want to arrive refreshed. Basic no frills accommodation, all I needed was a secure place to spend the night. The heater warmed the room up a treat and I had to turn it down as it got too hot. Good for a couple of adults and a child....

First impressions of this hotel was from reviews and pictures. I was expecting VERY BASIC accommodation in a small dingy hotel. The hotel was a lot bigger than I first thought and I was pleasantly surprised with the standard of the room. The room itself was spotless and bed was comfortable.

Great value. Easy to find coming from Sydney at night. Reasonable soundproofing. Rooms easily accommodate 2 adults + 1 child, if 1 is able to climb to the top bunk. There's wifi too but my laptop security didn't like it and I couldn't be bothered getting a login, sleep more
