Okkkk.... But poor value for the price also VERY dated
- dark rooms
- too large (when I stay at an apartment I prefer something more homely)
- location is fine
- room is clean
- good kitchen facilities - full kitchen and fridge

My family and I travelled to Canberra as we were on the way to the snow. We chose Medina based on its prime location and heard good reviews from friends, I can say that our stay was beyond our expectations!

The room we had was perfect for a family of four enough room that we were not crowded but set out we could keep an eye on the kids.

The main reason our stay was so fantastic though was the front receptionist Sarah. Sarah is the type of staff member you want to have, she knows where to go, is beyond helpful and simply a beyond pleasant person to talk to.

So thank you Medina James Court and thank you Sarah for making a trip to Canberra a trip to remember!

We stayed at this hotel about five years ago and had an enjoyable stay. Total contrast to the recent one. The first room we were allocated had not been cleaned despite clean towels being in place and the bin being empty. No batteries in the remote control for the TV or the heating. We returned to the reception and waited behind two other couples who had complaints.
On allocation of a second room, we found this to be just as 'well worn' and dirty. Again, no batteries in any of the remote controls and two out of three lamps had blown lightbulbs.
I am not sure what the staff at reception are paid, but it's not enough to take the constant complaints. One customer had to go in her nightwear, carrying a toilet bag , to another room to have a shower. Tip to management, get a team with buckets of soapy water and wash the walls, replace the batteries in the remote controls and put some light bulbs in the rooms.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel

We stayed in a 2 bed apartment recently for 2 nights. Visiting on business with our 18yr old son, we booked here because for $170 per night for 3 people it seemed a good deal compared with what most city hotels were charging. (a 3rd person always costs so much extra and you're cramped up in one room with 1 bathroom!) This apartment had a very spacious living area - with dining alcove, sitting/tv area and still more space - outdoor balcony, HUGE kitchen, 2 bedrooms with Queen in one and 2 singles in the other, and TWO bathrooms - one being very roomy with washer and dryer also. Two flat screen tvs and modern air conditioners which heated up the apartment quickly for the early cold mornings. We only wished were could have made more use of this great apartment - with business commitments taking up every day, we really only slept there. For a family on holiday, this would be a great base - with room to move and relax when not out and about. Taking advice from other reviews, we requested a room away from the McDonalds drive thru - our room was high up overlooking the pool, so not bad views over the city too!

Room Tip: High up - overlooking pool

Medina is getting a little old but the rooms are large and comfortable. Great facilities if you want to prepare meals instead of eating out. Location is close to everything you need. Will keep coming back.
