Fair 4,0
Wifi was not usable with no fix available. Room was lovely and spacious.
Michelle, au1 night trip

Choose hotel not apartment
The attached hotel is wonderful, the apartments aren’t really part of the hotel, and aren’t of the same quality. The Hotel is very generously staffed and the service is great. The apartment was only serviced/cleaned every 3 days and did not feel 5 star at all.... its was like an Airbnb which is not what we were after.

Don’t park there don’t eat there
Parking is a cash grab restaurant has the worst menu I have see in years , everything else is perfect
Glenn, au1 night romance trip
Good 6,0
Uncomfortable in hot weather. No aircon.
I booked a room for a friend. In a very hot Canberra her room without air conditioning was uncomfortable. She didn't want to spend another night there, and the hotel to be fair did offer a room with aircon. But she had had enough, and we couldn't change the booking, so we didn't use the alternative room, losing 2 nights. Will be more thorough researching the room next time.

Avoid in Summer
No air conditioning in any rooms was not something I normally check for. It was extremely uncomfortable during the hot summer night and I had to have several cold showers to cool down so I could go back to sleep. I am happy about he eco-friendly attempt but it doesn't work in Summer in Canberra.

Murdoch stay
The accommodation was excellent. The view of the lake was a highlight. We didnt know that payment for onsite parking was an additional cost otherwise we would have stayed elsewhere. We're currently waiting for a refund of our $200 bond
Andrew, au2 night family trip
Exceptional 10,0
If you love edgy design—and I do—this is the place for you. If your tastes run toward the more traditional, think about trying something new. I wish my stay were longer to have an opportunity to get even more comfortable. The apartment was spacious and well-appointed with a view that could be enjoyed from a large balcony. If you don’t get lost in the apartment, hop down to the restaurant/bar or the on-site theater.

Great Place
Great place and great service - only thing lacking is the apartments don't have aircon. However they do tell you this during booking.

Bring back the G&T Sorbet
I love this part of Canberra and this is a great hotel to stay in. The only negative is they were no longer doing the Gin & Tonic sorbet in the restaurant but I am told it will be back.
Giles, au1 night business trip

Lovely hotel on edge of the CBD. Overlooking lake. Very funky place - lots of art. Nice vibe.
