      1. Upon arrival, while I was waiting for check-in, the receptionist ignored me and was teaching a new staff on how to confirm bookings or other revenue management matters... It was a small flaw. 2. Our room is on the ground floor. We killed some big ants on carpet inside the room. 3. Facilities are old with timber/construction materials piled outside the room.. 4. Overall, I still recommend.

      Great place for stopover. Stopped overnight just to sleep late but was impressed as it ended up more”
      Expected just a cheap place to stop over whilst staying to sleep between Melbourne to Sydney. The staff were so friendly and wonderful breakfast. Offered cheap Cartier exhibition tickets for its last day which I’d had no idea about and place was scrupulously clean. Bathroom could be updated but for the price and location it was a lovely experience.

      Motel type accommodation in nice neighbourhood”
      We stayed 10 days. Chose the hotel mainly for the fact it offered free tennis facilities. The hotel is adjacent to a tennis club. There are 6 courts and friendly club members who made us welcome. The room we had was clean and although a little dated had all the kitchen facilities we required. The hotel is 10 minute walk from a lovely neighbourhood shopping centre with nice restaurants and bars (caked Manuka) but to get around the city attractions a car is needed. Parking at the hotel is free and plentiful. A bus service runs past the hotel on weekdays only. On weekends the area is deserted and no buses!!! Yes this is the capital city of Aussie. Staff at the hotel are very professional and most helpful. We would certainly stay here again if only for the tennis!!

      Worst experience ever”
      I booked and paid for stay on credit card. Requested early check in. Went to hotel and was told it would be another hour and to come back which I did. Was then given an envelope with cash and told my booking was canceled as they had maintenance issues.later I was told they were not allowing local residents (ACT) residence to stay as they had had issues with theft and drug use over the holidays and as I had ACT plates on my car they decided to cancel my booking. Mind you the car belongs to my son and I borrowed it to take my things to motel. . I am a58 yr old grandmother not some idiot that wants to steal things and do drugs . I am in town to have medical treatment and wanted an air conditioned place and somewhere quiet to recover after treatment . I am disgusted in the way I was treated and would never recommend this place to anyone even though I have stayed before and had no problems .

      Abit old on the outside but everything inside the room was functional . Good comfy bed. Running heater/aircon can be abit loud though if you're a light sleeper but thats my only complaint. Location wise area is really good. Walking distance to Manuka.

      If you travel by car great place also for families”
      Easy access and good point to start your trips into the environment. Very calm and a lot of Kakadou birds. Nearby a great place for children to play. Shopping centre and bars in 500 mtr vicinity. But don't exexpect too much it's an "adminstration" city. Big mall in the City. The Docks are a great place to relax in the evening. The ZOO is too expensiv and the exibition is small even with australian species

      Decent Hotel for Short Stay”
      My wife & I stayed a night here & we had a comfortable stay; parking was free but unfortunately the wifi had a 500 MB limit for free usage & more than that would be charged. While it's more motel or motor lodge than hotel or apartment, the place was located in a quiet & safe area, while still being in close driving distance to a factory outlet, Australian National University & restaurants.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was generally clean and comfortable, although we think the carpet has dust mites as we were itching from it. Anyways, it was complete with oven, induction stove, fridge, microwave and clothes washer/dryer. Customer service was excellent too. Parking was easy and close to shops, restaurant and attractions.

      I enjoyed my stay here during my short trip to Canberra. Though the hotel is quite far from CBD, it's still a bus ride to the city. It's close to the Capital Hill. The hotel is clean and i love my room, it's complete. I recommend this hotel.

      Great place for a short stay in Canberra”
      Free parking. Very good location - walking distance from the parliament. Friendly staff. I would definitely come here again if visiting Canberra in the future. The downsides are poor Wi-fi options (like with most Australian hotels) and the rooms don't appear to be very soundproof (but this didn't affect us that much).

      Price
      When we decided to spend a two-day trip wandering around the capital city of Australia, we found it to be a little bit difficult to find an accommodation with good price and location at the meantime - couldn't find a better option than the Forrest Hotel and Apartments. The hotel, which is more like a motel actually from what it looks and equips, locates in the tourist area where it is convenient to walk to most of the tourist spots, and there are restaurants, cafes, bars and supermarkets around. Just wish the cost could be lower!
