    I reduced the dislikes from 700 words to 300 I have no likes

    F1HotelCanberra is basic Navigator, no street number, we got lost, and telephoned. Bp Garage was not enough, we drove all about the rear of garage, until we found “second left”, further along. Advised 16 steps upstairs, then, he gave us “disabled” room We saw coffee/tea making was public, but limited 4pm- 9pm. So, no supper coffee, morning tea. We shuffled past internet to our room, and glad not in wheelchair. During night, my wife woke me, could not climb out through her wall to toilet. Luggage sat on floor, no other place. Kneel to unpack. Hang up our best clothes, no, there was not one place to hang them. We slowly got the room warmer. Sheets cold. No elecblanket Each time I switched AirConditioning on, it turned off to ambient, took two hours to get it 22deg. I went out, taking key. My wife very upset. As the hall door closed, the sealed window popped open, and the room was cold again. The nightattendant said he could not do anything until nextday. I asked where to park, but his answer was meaningless. It was a dark night, I had just driven 600 Km, and could not see much. Lucky I parked in the right place. We reported window again. He should refund our money, but at least he said he would report it. Allright for the nextuser?? But what about us? It surely was reported before. Using towels again? Hang them on the rail, but no rail. Shower water everywhere, no curtain. No bedlamps either, nor wardrobe. Most motels have electricjug, tea/coffee makings, also fridge. This place had nothing. Finally, I will never never never nevernevernever stay in a Formule1Hotel, anywhere in the World again. Rather sleep in my coat on a park bench, than pay all that money for nothing.

    Close to Federal Highway entry point. Close to Watson Art Centre Clean, comfortable room. Simple but good budget breakfast Helpful reception attendant

    The aircon didn't work in my room, the 2nd night I was there was a bit warm. By the time I needed it, there was no-one at reception. Would have liked a cloth bath mat to use in the washroom after showering.

    Showers had no door/curtain so made the floor of the toilet wet. Really missed tea making facilities One of my children hit her head on the metal bunk edge

    No hot water jug in room unless I paid a $20 deposit. Currently in the middle of a housing construction site and was very difficult to find - had to ring to get directions. Map on Book Now needs updating.

    Friendly staff, value for money, allowed us to check in early as a room was available.

    Location was a much more expensive taxi ride into the city than I expected.

    Friendly staff, fastest check-in and check-out of any hotel in my experience. Room was comfortable. Double bed underneath a bunk bed was ingenious and a good option for our family of 3.

    Slightly far out from the city centre. Bathroom was functional but very basic.

    Nice and Quiet

    Staying few days, with verey early mornings leaving room ability to make toast etc. Rules of NON compliances on printed card are in smaller letters than rest, in white on light blue !!! TV screen points to a hight of a standing person. Adult sitting on the edge of the bed obtains a dark picture!

    the fact that you had to put a deposit on a kettle pay $5 for sachets of coffee, tea, sugar but were not offered a cup in which to drink it. would have liked an option on what floor as we were at front of hotel very noisy. Bathroom was too small.
