    A convenient welcoming holiday accommodation

    .My friends and I celebrated 60 years of friendship at the Forrest Apartments.We were well looked after by the staff by giving prompt attention to our requests and suggesting extra activities to add interest to our trip.The location was excellent with easy access to the parliamentary zone and we managed to confidently navigate the circular road system.The units were well maintained and it is definitely my choice to stay on our next visit

    Locked into my GPS.

    Parking was disorganised and random, and the rooms beginning to show their age, but outstanding customer service, fine dining ( esp breakfasts), central location and competitive pricing make this Canberra's best value for money accommodation. We'll be back.
