THIS MONTH’S FEATURED SPONSOR


You may have noticed that a little Canberra hotel brand that started its life cycle in Gungahlin just two years ago is moving onwards and upwards and has no plans on slowing down any time soon.

The past few months have been quite eventful for the Abode team with the opening of a second hotel in Tuggeranong and the announcement of a new partnership with the Canberra Raiders but, it doesn’t stop there.

   
 

Abode has confirmed that not only will a third hotel open in Woden next year but a fourth is planned to open in Belconnen the following year.

Developed, owned and operated by GEOCON, Abode is a new concept for Canberra and is located at two convenient locations; Anthony Rolfe Avenue Gungahlin and Anketell Street Tuggeranong. Finished to the highest standard, Abode proves that brand new, stylish hotel accommodation need not be exclusive.

Rooms at both hotels feature ensuite, kitchenette, laundry facilities, a flat screen TV and sofa beds. Abode's inspired design provides everything you need for a stay that is both leisurely and comfortable.

Abode is the perfect destination for accommodation during the race and Christmas season. Abode Gungahlin is just minutes from Thoroughbred Park and is home to the very popular Siren Bar & Restaurant.

For further information about Abode Hotels, visit abodehotels.com.au. You can also subscribe at the website to receive up to date news about your favourite Canberra hotel.
