I work full time in Belconnen town centre so I am not far away, and I look forward to checking in with guests after work to ensure that they are comfortable, and have everything they need. The NeighborhoodThe location is very convenient for work, study, and leisure activities. I moved to the street nearly 18 years ago, and love it!
