Despite the fact there was a large wedding in the venue the night of our stay, our room was very quiet. We faced a garden so no view to speak of. While this is a hotel clearly built in the early days of the establishment of Canberra with some atmosphere of those times remaining, the overall effect somehow just misses.
Our room was large but curiously laid out, with a SMALL screen TV a very long way from the bed. Until that problem is dealt with the hotel is in real danger of falling into the 3 and a half star category. The hotel advertising says it is a short walk from the National Art Gallery, Manuka shops and restaurants, and other major destinations. Short is in fact about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on your age and shoes.
