I recently stayed at the Forrest Hotel and it was good value for the money in Canberra.
The hotel is an older style hotel that has undergone a “modernisation”. I stayed in a second floor room that was freshly painted, new carpets and furniture and TV. It seemed cleaned. The makeover of the bathroom was limited to the suite with the tiles and shower remaining from before the makeover. It was still a neat, small and seemingly clean bathroom. The bed was ok and I slept through the night.
The location was good for me, however I did have a car. The hotel has views of Parliament House across a park. It would be about a 20 minute walk to Manuka.
The staff were friendly at both check in and check out. Hotel prices in Canberra are high so I was happy with the value for the price.
I would stay here again.
