4/5 Good

Absolutely fabulous location, we walked to Parliamanet (20 minutes) and great local shops nearby with a supermarket. Essential to have great parking on site. Apartment was fine for our needs, fill kitchen (could use some more cooking items) and laundry. Building was older but this was fine. Great outdoor bbq area. Good for a family and would definitely go back when in Canberra.

The room would be ok for overnight stay. But was much too small for a 3 night stay.
