    the view is spectacular, the living area and kitchen spacious. Laundry well appointed

    no comfort items inrooms, eg cushions on lounge. Only one pillow per person. Only 2 keys between 3 adults. Inadequate secure parking. No coffee plunger - expected in self-contained place at this price. Windows not double glazed, so noisy from traffic and 7 day/week construction below. basics such as tea and sugar not replaced unless requested.

    Superb

    We loved the location and the easy access to all the attractions. We found the facilities excellent for a family with plenty of room and the staff very helpful. So much so that we booked an extra night.

    Some of the furniture was getting worn and old. Perhaps some of it is in need of refurbishment.

    I liked the views, the comfort of the beds, the spaciousness of the living area and the laundry facilities. Staff was courteous and intelligent. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The room was clean, smelled fresh, and was a comfort from the moment we walked in.

    There was no one there when we went to check in, but only for a few moments. I would have liked to know exact check in times in advance. This was minor and the only thing I can think of that qualifies for the "didn't like" category.

    Very good

    The location is excellent, walking distance from the centre of Civic, and the views (when up high enough) were great. The staff were friendly and happy to help. Rooms were quiet and well-equipped with laundry and a decent kitchen.

    The fit and finish of the apartment wasn't what one would expect from a hotel with this many stars. It seemed a bit shabby and oddly designed.

    We requested a 2 bedroom, and were upgraded to a nice, very spacious 3 bedroom. Easy walk to many restaurants and shops. Next to walking bridge to lakefront walk and bike paths. Parking was included and handy.

    We didn't realize there was a boiler and managed to run out of hot water. Not a real problem. The pool was not attractive to use in the winter (June). It was covered and suggested to be cold. Didn't try.

    Very good

    good location, views, nice decor and paintings in apartments - plenty of cushions and pillows. pleasant cleaning staff etc.

    Few minor repairs required in room - tap in kitchen sink loose and leaking; slightly worn kitchen units; curtains so thin they did not block any daylight. ,Reception staff looked bored!

    Very good

    Very convenient to go to Floriade and also for shopping and seeing the other sights.Free parking.Friendly staff who were very obliging. When we asked if we could email them tickets to be printed as we had no printer, very happy to do so. When we asked if it was possible to have a coffee plunger in our apartment, a new one was sent up immediately.Spacious rooms and wonderful views of the lake and beyond.

    No Internet connection available at all. Place is getting tired looking. Stains on carpets and old fashioned bathrooms. Blunt kitchen knives

    The staff were exceptional.we asked for the pool to be uncovered so we could swim and they even made the pool toys available for use. The pool was clean and warmed to about 28 degrees so it made for some tired kids, not bad for Canberra in September. Beds very comfortable and the kitchen well appointed.appreciated that the car was securely locked up.made use of the laundry facility, much appreciated. Will recommend and we will return thank you

    The dryer had come off he wall and was resting on top of the water service, not very safe for getting clothes in or out. I dropped a sock and it was just abut impossible to retrieve, jammed behind washer and water service

    Superb

    Excellent apartment, well appointed kitchen and bathrooms. comfortable beds and sensational views over Lake Burley Griffing to Parliament house.

    Desk staff were not able to provide information re public transport and attractions. I had to ask for a receipt when leaving, and although it was provided, I was made to feel that this was an unreasonable request.

    Superb

    The apartment ( Room 1901) was spacious in its living/dining area, with magnificent views over Lake Burley Griffen & Parliament House, however the main bathroom ( we had a 3 -bedroom apartment) used by 3 people was not appropriate. The glass shield over the bath was almost non-existent, making showering a very difficult,messy & therefore dangerous event. There were insufficient towel racks in this bathroom for an apartment of this size, and those there needed repair. For an apartment this size, a separate toilet outside the main bathroom would have been more appropriate. The main bedroom with ensuite was very satisfactory however, and very spacious. Bedroom 3 had no cupboards whatsoever, making it difficult to unpack/hang clothes.

    IAs above - I did not like the shower srceen ( or lack therof) that was over the bath in the main bathroom, the lack of towel hanging space, and the lack of cupboards in bedroom 3. Two of the ceramic hotplates on the cook top in the kitchen were badly cracked and could not be used. Maintenance of the apartment seemed lacking.
