    I arrived at the Monaro in winter after an overnight flight and a long day. My room was warm and free from noise and I was able to get a good rest. The next morning I was ready to work as normal. Also the shops in Kingston are very near and there are enough facilities in the room to mean that you can put together your own breakfast. It's not at all a fancy place but if you just need somewhere to rest then you could a whole lot worse than the Monaro.

    Very comfortable, warm bed and fantastic shower!

    The location: right next to Kingston shopping centre which has some outstanding restaurants; within walking distance of Parliament House, the national Art Gallery, Old Parliament House and the Portrait Gallery. For the more energetic, the City Centre would only be about 45 minutes' walk away.

    Internet connection was good, albeit a bit pricey (15 AUD for 12 hours cumulative usage). The hotel is a 5 minutes walk to a number of restaurants/cafes and shops which is convenient.

    The hotel has the 'charme' of a typical US highway motel. Absolutely nothing fancy, carpet and equipment quite old. I was there during Australian fall (May) with cold mornings. There was no heating in the bathroom which was a challenge in the morning when taking a shower. Heating in living room worked well though.

    Place was comfotable and in a good location for what i needed

    car parking was abit tight meaning not much room but still kept car off the road at night

    Friendliness and cleanliness.

    Not enough space in room - nowhere for 2 suitcases to be stored.

  • Family with children

    the room was equipped well for a comfortable stay. The newly renovated bathroom had a fantastic shower.

    For a family of four, we found the room a bit too small.

    My overnight stay was one of convenience to the Canberra rail station. The accommodation was comfortable and all that I required. Staff were courteous and helpful.

  • Older travelers

    The Motel was very close to a variety of restaurants and also close to the National Gallery which was our reason for the trip this time.

  • Single
    9.6

    Staff were very polite and helpful, even allowing a late check out so family members who had just arrived could use the room to freshen up

    would have liked some beer and wine in mini bar

  • Single
    7.8

    The motel was conveniently located near amenities, such as restaurants, gyms, supermarket, weekend markets, post offices and bars. The neighbourhood was quiet and peaceful.

  • Single
    7.8

    close to good quality shops with plenty of options for dinner, flat screen TV

    internet access was poor, this is the third time I've stayed in Canberra and internet access has been poor in all cases

  • Single

    Room was very small - like a room in a hotel in France. When i switched on the light in the bathroom the noisy fan went on. It was not possible to switch it off and it was really loud.

  • Family with children

    Spacious and clean family apt #30 with separate double bedroom, self contained and private
