Great Hotel, in good location in Canberra. Room was large and very well appointed, was nice and dark and quiet at night. Bathroom grout could do with replacement. Reception was friendly and helpful, only one problem was that we didn't know to put our card in the slot to get the airconditioner going - so being told that would have helped. Didn't seem to be a hairdryer.

Dear fjmjmaskill

Hello and thank you for your feedback. It is pleasing to hear that your recent stay was enjoyable - that's what we are here for!

Our location which is central to all tourist and cultural destinations namely; Parliament House, National Gallery, National Library, Questacon Science Museum, the Old Bus Depot weekend markets, Canberra Glassworks, Kingston and Manuka Shopping districts is ideal for that weekend Canberra getaway. The serene oak-lined streets of Barton where we are located combined with our luxurious beds and bath amenities will ensure that you'll have a restful sleep after a day full of activities.

Thank you once again for your time and patronage. The team and I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Kind regards,

Carlos Palma

Check-in is simple and quick. Accommodation was very open and spacious. Travelling with my wife and child we had plenty of room in all areas of the 2 bedroom apartment.
The cleanliness was not up to scratch in the bathrooms, which to be fair is probably the only thing you want to be spotless when you stay away from your home. The balcony was exceptionally dirty. Dust and leftover excrement was left all over the table and chairs outside. Entertainment system didn't work. Maintenance guy was fantastic but could not fix the issues we faced so we had no TV in either of the two bedrooms. Bed was comfy and linen was fresh and clean. Would not stay here again but for the price we weren't too concerned.

Dear FuseO

Thank you for your feedback. Our goal is to satisfy all of our guests and ensure that they leave 100% satisfied with what we have to offer. The Burbury Hotel is not only stylish and sophisticated externally, but also internally.

It's quite disappointing to hear that your room as it seems was not perfect. Please trust that what you experienced is definitely not to our usual high standards and that we have taken your feedback on board. Our desk is manned 24 hours and if you ever need anything, all you need is to call and we'll make sure that whatever is bothering you is corrected immediately and with a smile.

I'm glad that in a way, you were able to enjoy and appreciate how spacious and well-appointed our apartments are. I do hope that you'll re-book with us in the future so we can show you what we can truly offer - the best services and facilities in town at a very competitive price!

Sincerely

Carlos Palma

The room was exceptional being a good size and well appointed. The hotel had great amenities such as a well equipped gym, good restaurants, ample security.
The hotel is is a handy location with a short walk to the lake and shopping and also close to Canberra tourist attractions.
Staff at the hotel were very helpful attending to our every request and more.

Room Tip: The apartments are quiet with plenty of space.

Hi and thank you for your kind words. It is so good to hear that you and your family were able to enjoy our spacious and well-appointed apartments in the hear of our capital!

I hope you enjoyed the Hyper Real exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia. The Burbury Hotel and Apartments has the closest proximity to all major tourist destinations including the NGA which is just a short 7 minute stroll away.

The next blockbuster exhibition at the National Gallery is Cartier: The Exhibition from 30 Mar 2018 to 22 Jul 2018 which is the season's hottest ticket. This exhibition showcases more than 300 spectacular items, with loans from royal families, celebrities and the astonishing Cartier collection itself.

Thanks and see you again soon!

The bed is made up of 2 single beds and the velcro that joins the 2 is very uncomfortable to lie on. The night reception is terrible and he gave me misleading answers on 2 occasions, where one of which costs me an extra night which was eventually refunded. The rooms on level 1 was terrible, the sounds of plumbing was loud and disturbing. The bathroom has black edging from mildew. I asked for a teapot and it never came, even after 4 nights.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, ask for a room above first floor.
