Best Western Plus Garden City Hotel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean well-equipped room. Friendly and efficient reception staff. Bathroom small and shower only but very clean. We were visiting family in south Canberra, and the location is great for that, and quick access to Woden, as well as the airport.

We were upgraded to Exec room which was tidy with good size overall. Bathroom pokey. Restaurant was not operating at night over Xmas break. Good parking with easy access to hotel. Close to Manuka which has plenty of eat out options.

I was in room 241 this time, which provided a nice view of the pool below, and luckily, no one had mistaken the lacy curtains in this room for a scratching post this time around (heh heh). ;-) Also, this was my first opportunity to actually use the pool, as either I'd been too preoccupied with sightseeing, or it'd been too cold on previous visits. All in all, though, I still love this hotel. :-)

After visiting the war memorial I checked trip advisor and google to find a motel. We headed out of town to the best western as we have stayed in many best westerns and never had any issues. Upon arrival the receptionist wasn't very friendly. I asked about the zoo deal that was on the website only to be told that they no longer have any deals and they shouldn't be on the website. (The zoo deal was one of the reasons I choose this motel). When booking the room she told us the price for the night, I asked if I should have booked online before coming here as it was actually cheaper online through their website, her response was that they didn't have any of those rooms available and that we were getting a "deluxe" room. The bed was comfy and the linen lovely. The bathroom however was poorly designed light wise, it was so dark in the shower I had to get my torch to help see. Breakfast was okay, though wasn't impressed that we had to pay more for anything hot or a decent coffee. The German Club next door had great meals. Overall it was very pricey for a mediocre stay.

Arrival was expected as per booking, the bed was comfortable, room clean, staff friendly, evening meal great, breakfast plentiful, minor issue with small blood stain on doona fixed by replacing upon us noticing.

We stayed weekend at this hotel which located in silent area around 7 minutes drive from parliament. Hotel itself, room and bathroom are very clean. Staff is invisible but helpful when you need them. Room cleaned even during weekend. Restaurant is closed for Sunday dinner, but opened for breakfast . Breakfast simple but can cover any taste. In restaurant some tables are with view to swimming pool. Hotel has its own parking. Near hotel is German club, where is good restaurant and bar. Price for 2 nights was very attractive.

Had booked this motel as it stated it was 4.5 stars and was a good price. On arrival i was checked into a diffetent room from the one i had booked. On being rechecked into the queen deluxe room with separate lounge, i found an outdated room, yes the lounge was seperate... from the bed. The bathroom was extremely tiny, the towels supplied were thin and frayed. There were no privacy curtains, so we were either closed in or exposed to the car park. Overall just disappointed, have stayed in a variety of motels and this did not stand up to satisfaction and certainly not a 4.5 stars. Will not be staying there again.

Stayed for one night on a business trip, the room was apparently an 'executive' level, but felt like a standard room. Overall it was fine for what I required, quiet and the bed comfortable. However, the room was let down by a few small things, there was a desk for working at but no chair, needed to use the one at the small table. The tap in the bathroom was not correctly fixed and was loose, the automatic light in the corridior when activated lit up the room at all hours and finally and most annoying, there was no toilet roll, only a dispencer which provided small squares. These are small items to resolve but could significantly improve the stay. Overall the staff were polite and efficiant and it was fine for a one night stay, but would not want to stay for longer.

A god mid quality hotel with everything you need. Quiet rooms, comfortable bed, good pillows, a decent sized bathroom along with a dining room. The staff are very friendly and the check in / check out processes were smooth, quick and efficient.

The rooms are very clean. The location is a bit isolated there is a golf course across the road and the German Club next door. The restaurant food in the hotel is really good though really expensive and they also charge a $6 delivery fee for the dinner. I had the pork ribs (awesome) Dark ale pie with mash (to die for) Butter Chicken (disappointing). The service was good.
