After our report on the terrible accommodation gouging in Canberra in Budget week, Crikey is proud to present to readers… some accommodation gouging.

A subscriber has an apartment booked in Canberra on Budget night that they no longer need.

And it’s not just any apartment. It’s in the Saville Park Suites, “perfectly located in the CBD with shopping and nightlife at your fingertips… Saville Park Suites Canberra offers apartment style accommodation combined with the facilities of a 4 star hotel… select from a hotel room or a superior one or two bedroom apartment. Dine in Zipprestaurantbar or take advantage of 24 hour room service. The hotel can cater for all your conference and catering requirements for 10 to 150 people. Relax and unwind in the gymnasium, indoor heated pool and sauna.”

All this – only 10 minutes by car from Parliament House. So our subscriber’s going to hold a Dutch auction – or something like it.

What are we bid for one bedroom suite in Canberra on Budget night?
