Anzac Park Homestay
108 Anzac Park East Campbell
Canberra, ACT

Great accommodation, glorious food and a touch of France as well!


This B&B is just lovely – a modern home, with a separate wing for guests, close to many of Canberra’s delights and with helpful and unobtrusive hosts, Phil and Mercedes. 

Overall rating?
Excellent

What makes Anzac Park Homestay different?
The home has been purpose-built to provide luxurious short-term accommodation.  Only 10 minutes from Canberra airport and 200 metres from the impressive Australian War Memorial, it is perfectly located to allow guests to make the most of their time in Canberra.  It is a lovely quiet area and the hosts make pets truly welcome.

Accommodation overview
There are three bedrooms, the Rose and Chagall Suites each have their own well-appointed ensuite, while a third room has exclusive use of the bathroom.  All rooms have queen-size beds, desks, wireless internet connection, TV, tea and coffee-making facilities and plenty of storage.  The underfloor heating is a delight on chilly mornings, and there is a selection of well-chosen books in each room.  The Rose and Chagall suites are named for their feature walls in provencal colours and the general décor reflects Mercedes’ French heritage.  Chocoholics will love the quality complimentary chocolates.

Facilities overview

Two of the rooms open onto the private and secure verandah, while the other opens to a fully fenced back courtyard, large enough for dogs to enjoy a run around or to just lie in the sun.  Pets are welcome to sleep on a mat in the corner of the room, and then enjoy the courtyard through the day while their owners are out exploring the nation’s capital.  Phil and Mercedes supply a marvellous breakfast of homemade bread, croissants, cereal, jams and preserves and ‘proper’ coffee and tea.  Guests who book for a stay of 3 nights or more will also be treated to a delicious three course dinner – with a French flavour, of course.

The common dining area has a lovely atmosphere and there is plenty of information on activities in the local area.

Location
Anzac Park is close to Canberra airport and conveniently located just 5 minutes from the CBD.  Canberra is easily accessible via the Hume Highway and is well signposted from both Sydney and Melbourne.  It is about three and half hours by car from Sydney and about 7 hours from Melbourne.  The Snowy Mountains are an easy couple of hours away by car.

Suitable for children?

No

Suitable for pets?

Yes, for house-trained & well-behaved pets

Wheelchair access?

No

Perfect for?
It is an ideal place for couples wanting to spend time together exploring Canberra, for a group of friends catching up or as a convenient base when working short-term in Canberra.  Conveniently located near many of Canberra’s attractions, it is a perfect base to discover the delights of the nation’s capital.

Why stay longer?
To spend more time enjoying Canberra, relaxing in the peace and seclusion of the property and to try some of the excellent local restaurants.  There is so much to see and do, that a short stay just leaves you wanting more.  Mercedes and Phil have vast local knowledge and are happy to assist their guests to make the most of their stay.

Why you wouldn’t stay longer?
If you don’t have a car it is lengthy walk to the city and attractions, however it is a lovely and safe area to walk around and there are shops and restaurants nearby.

Pricing

From $145 – 185 per couple per night. Pet surcharge: $15 to $25 per night depending of the size of the dog or cat.
