Very happy to have found the heating on and the electric blanket ready to go upon arrival what with it hitting single figures in Canberra. Some restaurants were a very short walk away and i was really happy with the facilities offered.

The place is close to the main city and the apartment has all facilities such as full cooking and washing facilities.If you are family travelling with kids, it meets all your requirements. Coming to cons, it is slightly expensive.
Mykanth from Australia

We would have needed microwave as bare essential with two small children needing to drink milk at odd times day and night that would have been helpful but other then that we all enjoyed our stay reception was quick fast efficient and rooms were near tidy

The hotel is walking distance to Manuka shopping mall. No need to go elsewhere for dining as here you can find almost everything The room and toilet is small yet comfortable and clean Quite neighbourhood and surroundings Parkings are ample and safe.

Location - close to Manuka restaurants and the city. The executive apartment was surprising. The building looks old but the apartment is superb and is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful

Nothing to complain. Value for money. Free parking, free 500mb wifi (after that you will be charged). Room is very clean. Staff is friendly to recommend place to go and also provides city map. Definitely come back next time there.

    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.

    Modest, older styling but comfortable ”
    Less modern than hotel rooms shown on website. I accepted the apartment on offer of staff for same rate as upgraded twin room. It was quite a walk for my elderly mum upstairs to the apartment and later to the restaurant for dinner, and again in the morning for breakfast.

    Day trip reststop”
    I was traveling from Sydney to Canberra and back, but didn’t want to drive up and back in one day, so decided to sleep over one night. This location sufficed. I found it a little on the pricey side. The room was comfortable and had most necessary items. The rooms are in a two-story walk up building. There’s also a restaurant for guests to dine at. Breakfast was included, I believe, but not for early departures such as I had, so I paid for it but couldn’t enjoy it. There are stores nearby as well, about 3-5 minutes by car. Staff were helpful and friendly. Food at the restaurant was delicious too. There were several people sitting solo and I thought it would have been more interesting to enjoy the meal with other travelers, but wasn’t sure if it was proper to do in Australia. This accommodation was not the easiest place to find. You definitely need a navigator or GPS to find it. I would recommend it to travelers.

    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!!

    My Opinion”
    1. The place is actually an older style motel not a hotel. 2. Staff are very well presented and nice to make it look like it is upmarket. 3. Breakfast provided was good but restaurant furniture again was older motel dining room. 4. In the room provided, only superficial upgrades and not well done at that. If staying in Canberra again this would not be first choice for price. Location in Canberra is irrelevant due to its design and makeup of the city. Pictures provided made rooms look brighter and larger than they actually are.

    Location and Price Combination Unbeatable”
    Location and Price Combination Unbeatable. Room 84 was perfectly adequate, I like a bit more lighting but that's just personal preference and not really the faculty of the place. I'd recommend this to the budget conscious traveler looking for a place close to where you need to be, which in my case was a conference venue less than 400m away. Even in Canberra's winter, that journey was well worth the savings. In room catering facilities were excellent.

    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.

    Room was very nice, not too big just enough for what we needed. Bathroom was clean and towels are big fluffy and fresh. The only thing we were dissapointed was the in house restaurant service is terrible, food came very slow, waitress forgot my partner's wine. Didnt come after entree,that only after he asked. Apart from that overall the room is good. Just need a little fix on the sharpy bit between the carpet and floor. Worried that someone would hurt themself.

    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).

    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!
