            • Couple
              7.0

              It was a good commodation , resnoble price and friendly staff and clean

            • Single
              9.6

              The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, I found no difficulties in calling taxi. They offered the best service that I ever had, the hotel staff gave me assistance when I found difficulties in turning on the heater. I felt satisfied for privacy and safety. I will come and stay in this hotel.

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              Easy to find, modern good sized room.

            • Single
              5.8

              The bed was comfortable and the room was clean

              The shower was not satisfactory poor water pressure, the cleaner just walked into my room in the morning without knocking and I my physically fitness was certainly challenged lugging my bags up from the car park to my room - the wheel has been invented and a trolley would have been helpful.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              Very clean and comfortable

              We did not like the hardness of the pillows and they were all the same

            • Family with children
              7.8

              We love the location of the Motel which is only 10 mins from the City. The staff were friendly and the facilites were modern and new. It gave us a relaxing feeling. The entry and exit from the back door was a good idea and provided privacy.

              The room was small & crowded for 3 people, we were disappointed when we were charged an extra $40 over 2 nights because we had our 10yrs old daughter with us even though we weren't either provided with an extra bed nor bath towel. If the room was catered for 3 people then why only 2 people were covered for breakfast?. We had to pay for our 2 children at breakfast over the 2-day stay.

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              Friendly stuff, easy checkin and checkout. Room was quite clean.

              Parking direction was a bit confusing.

            • Single
              7.8

              Convenient, close to airport, clean and comfortable.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              close to the facilities we required and very comfortable

            • Family with children
              5.4

              Staff Food

              Small rooms. Does not look like a hotel (It is not a motel indeed)

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              We enjoyed our stay at the best Western Garden City very much and would stay again without hesitation. The rooms were nice and warm, the staff were friendly and helpful, the dining room was pleasant with a good range of menu options, and it was very quiet at night.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              The service was very good, we did not use any amenties during our stay.

              We thought the room was very small and the bathroom / toilet could have been better placed. The shower was good, Our visit was to spend time with family there. The pillows are very hard on the bed!

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Clean and happy staff. Good meals too.

              Foxtel and better waterpressure in the shower would be good. But not a serious issue. Car spaces a bit tight for a family sedan, but otherwise pretty good!

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              I booked the room for the close proximity to Canberra Private hospital.We thought we were staying for 2 nights but my husband was discharged 1 day early. I was happy to pay for the second night even though we came home but they did not charge us for it.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              This was our first visit to this motel and we enjoyed our stay there very much and will not doubt be staying there in the future. We shall stay there for every visit to our family that reside there.
