    The accomadation is in the university grounds which was a 15-20 min. walk to town if you want shops or restaurants. The room was spacious with a retro decorated theme and I had a room with a balcony which was also spacious. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. There is a cafe associated with the complex.

    The cafe didn't appear to be open when I arrived on Labour day Monday or I just wasn't told about it. When I discovered it was open the coffee and food seemed fine.

    although the room looked clean it had a poor smell about it. We found a toe nail in the blanket Beds were uncomfortable Shower head was covered with mould. The cord for the jug was to short so had to boil the jug by either putting it on the floor or next to the TV. Buffet breakfast was expensive for the quality Location of the room was noisy. Could hear people going up & down stairs & banging doors early hours of the morning / throughout the night

    Perfectly situated for the uni and in lovely grounds. Handy cafe and bar on-site with a nice casual vibe.

    Pretty basic accommodation and beds not very comfortable at all. A bit disappointing overall but conveniently located. Cleanliness could also be better especially in the bathroom. Room was cleaned the first day but then not again after that.

    Didn't stay for breakfast - next time :) Close proximity to the shine dome and the symposium I attended. I liked the older 70s or 60s style. Lovely surrounds. nice pond. Huge suite, huge balcony, nice outlook from the balcony. Nice to be able to open the windows and feel that fresh Canberra air :)

    No complaints! Perhaps the baggage storage room do with a little spruce up :)
