Hotel Brassey was in a great area and was a great price but we got what we paid for! When we arrived it was very warm in our room. The airconditioning made no difference. We had a maintenance man come in who said the airconditioning supplied numerous rooms who had it on warm so that was the way it would...

We spent a night here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was modern, large and comfortable and there were ample restaurants on site for dinner and breakfast. The hotel was only a few minutes' drive from Parliament House and was in a quiet residential-type area. The staff were friendly and efficient. Parking could be an issue as there is...

We were looking for somewhere to stay for a night and we found a gem at a very reasonable price. Located very near Parliament House and to many restaurants in Manuka and Kingston, it suited us perfectly as a base. It is an older hotel that has been well renovated and has very comfortable beds! Service was friendly, and we...

We stayed 2 nights in April and believe we got good value for money. Check in was easy although we we were lucky as there was only 1 parking spot available at the front of the hotel. We found out later that there is public parking at the back but this is limited to 2 hours from 9.00 to 5.00....

I'd rate staff -very good, environment is clean - garden could be improved and night lights would greatly add to the ambiance. I would give this heritage hotel another chance should we need to go back for another family event.
