« Straightforward Budget Hotel in Outer Area of Canberra »

Friendly budget hotel in a pleasant residential area at the edge of the city. Helpful staff. Carpet laying going on at time of stay, affecting cleanliness score. Breakfast limited in choice, but unlimited in quantity and very reasonably priced if booked online.

« Good value price »

Excellent room with 1 double and 1 single bed. Breakfast for $1 is awesome. Location not good, we went by car and was fine but its far from the city. Overall it is an excellent hotel. Clean, small and very convenient.

Hi Aglae H, Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to provide us with some wonderful feedback. I am delighted to hear that you had an enjoyable stay and the $1.00 breakfast booked online. I understand it's a bit of a distance from the city with a 10 - 15 minute drive, though i hope we can still welcome you back in the future for another enjoyable stay. Kind regards Patrick Gullotto General Manager

« Comfortable Cozy Property »

Conveniently located on the Federal Highway and not far from the city centre. Cozy property for a brief stopover. Warm and welcoming hotel reception staff. Healthy breakfast to start the days sightseeing. Continue the good work :-)

« Excellent staff - not much to work with »

While my experience with the hotel staff was excellent (courteous, helpful and attentive), my experience with the property was poor.... it started at the outset, where the entry totem sign had been shabbily propped up after being knocked down by a vehicle; to the front door that needs to have its dampener re oiled... the interior of the property had quite stained carpet and smelled damp and of old gym socks... the rooms were not much to speak of, which would be ok, if the floors weren't sticky, room dusty, hairs left in the bathroom and heater not working... the mattress had a lot left to be desired... overall, the motel is in desperate need of some love and the price charged for the room is not reflective of the quality received..

Hi WDMelb, Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to provide us with some honest and genuine feedback. I completely understand where you are coming from here as this is exactly what I walked into when I took over the management of the hotel. Fortunately things are starting to look more positive here and the hotel is starting to reflect the amazing team we have here. My apologies that your the hotel was below par during stay, though some of the changes that have happened are the front totem sign has been replaced with a nice flashy new one. Now just waiting to have it lit up at night. The front door has been repaired and we will be getting new carpets in early 2018. No more damp gym socks smell! Plus the new housekeeping team have made an amazing impact on the cleanliness of the rooms and the plan is to get the new beds during 2018. So all in all the hotel is finally getting the love that it deserves. Thank you again for sharing your experience and we hope that we might be able to welcome you back when you next visit Canberra. Kind regards Patrick Gullotto General Manager

« Reveiw »

The ibis budget is a okay place to stay for a night or two, the rooms are adequate and the breakfast was also good. The rooms are not spacious enough for a long stay but are good for short term stays. The overall experience was good and perfect for someone on a budget.

« Great value budget hotel - rate included GST + continental buffet b/fast »

Enjoyed a comfortable and quiet nights sleep. Probably one of the better continental buffet breakfasts I have encountered - particularly for the room rate. My only recommendation is that if you are staying over the winter period, request additional blankets. Professional and happy staff. I would stay again.

« Filthy hotel that shouldn't be charging more than $60 per night »

When ibis took over Formule 1 and titled it BUDGET they weren't joking. This hotel is dirty and run down. I highly recommend staying somewhere else. Please pay more for your trip and get a nice room that you won't regret.

« Good Value, basic , comfortable, budget accommmodation »

Basic , comfortable, budget accommodation. Room was small but clean. Booked at discount rate - Good Value for price Some common areas need repairs. Close to service station and McDonalds - great fish & chips at nearby Watson shops.

« Excellent »

Great service, very affordable. Unfortunately a strong smell permeated throughout our stay but would still go back. Easy to locate. Wifi accessible. Clean and professional. Room just a little small. Still recommended

« worst stay ever »

This was the worst stay I have ever made in an hotel. The guests were so noisy with a party I guess and whoever was next door kept on banging the door and kicking the wall, or so it seemed to me. I was tired from a day outside and would have expected to sleep well. Instead I did not get to sleep until 12am and was woken at 2am by more noise. I did not get back to sleep until 4 am and I had to be up at 5.45 am to be where I had to be by 7 am. I will never stay at this hotel again. It ruined the next two days for me

« Review for service »

ok place, great for budget. Wish the service counter were a bit more polite. Other than that, everything else suits our needs and budget. I did not have breakfast, but would be great to have use of the common facility if it was staffed.

« In need of refresh »

The distance to the city center can be overlooked given the price and the hotel smelt like a hospital, everything seemed clean but the mattress was far from the standards I expect and the TV cannot be watched from the bed or the desk (poor quality, small screen with poor viewing angle)

« Ibis Budget Canberra »

For a budget hotel, it basically has everything you need to stay for the night, a clean , tidy and tiny bedroom and bathroom. Staff is friendly and helpful. Its in a quiet location but close to Dickson with many restaurants and woolworth.

« Tired and dirty »

Booked here as it was convenient location for my late timing, and it was cheaper than others. I soon found out why it was cheap. The actual bed was OK, but the hotel itself was incredibly sad.... halls had not been vacuumed for months by the looks, a whole lot of things hanging together by a thread. The 'laundry' to iron a shirt (nothing in the room) was just dingy. To top it off the place was full of Uni students obviously resident there under some cheap rate, and running amok till 2am. Not recommended unless desperate

« All I needed. »

It was an inexpensive place for me to stay, with all I needed each night, close to where I was spending each day. It had a comfortable bed, a bathroom and plenty of parking space. It's right beside the main road to town.

« Very disappointing stay »

very disappointed with the overall experience air conditioner was dirty and hadn't been cleaned in ages. stooped cooling during the night and room got hot. noisy from other guests staying there.. Buffet breakfast was a joke.. bread for toast was old not fresh, 3 cereals and a "pancake machine" which was only making pikelets. no fresh produce no cooked food.. better of paying the extra couple of dollars for somewhere better.. No way I will stay there again..

« Good Hotel »

A good budget hotel, Clean rooms pretty quiet location. Although there is a service station next door, If you don't have a car then the nearest shops/cafes are a fair distance away. Best to catch the bus to the shops.

« Disappointed »

This was one of the worst hotels I have stayed in on our recent trip to Canberra. The room was incredibly small, had 3 single beds when we had requested a double room. We drank from polystyrene cups until we went to Coles and purchased a couple of china ones. Couldn't shower with the bathroom door open as we were told it would set the fire alarm off and cause a $1000 fine. My brother-in-law(aged 83), in another similar room, tripped down the step from the bathroom and broke a bone in his foot causing him to have to fly home to Perth mid trip. Location is terrible, staff unfriendly and all in all just a hotel I will steer clear of in future. Accor should be ashamed to have it on their books.

« Very friendly good value for money »

In a nice and quiet setting we were welcomed by very friendly staff. The rooms were of an older style, but very efficient, fresh and clean. The bed is of very high quality. Breakfast was good, at a very reasonable price.
