Not one complaint . The bed was perfect. The meal was delicious. Great staff. Quiet and peaceful. The spa was amazing. Having Wi-Fi is excellent and the smart t.v. with foxtel channels was a nice surprise

Great service, helpful staff, clean and tidy rooms. Relaxing atrium to read a book and enjoy a drink, or play a few board games with the kids. Happy hour was a bonus, we did the evening meal in the hotel as been travelling which was great and very reasonably priced. Negatives was an outside pool and that was shut for...

Older hotel a bit dated and rather tired around the edges, but was being refitted during our stay. Very clean and comfortable with everything you need for a reasonable price. Note it is located on a fairly major intersection so there can be some traffic noise. Secure basement parking is free which is rare in Canberra. Checkout was problematic -...

We love staying here. The atmosphere is warm and intimate and yet the service is highly professional. The chess board was a winner. For my daughter. The meals were lovely. I like having a balcony as I love fresh air so that is a great feature. The smell from the Reno was a bit of a problem as we got...

We had a twin room with one queen and one single bed. The linen was lovely and the beds superbly comfortable. The ensuite and furnishings were modest but very clean and fresh. There is a wonderful lounge/eating area with shelves of books of all kinds and the food is delicious. We really enjoyed our stay.

Just what we need when we stay in Canberra. Close to Manuka, the Kingston Market and most other attractions around Canberra. We normally attend a sporting event at the AIS in December and find the Diplomat well located between the AIS and Canberra Airport.

The hotel is very tired and I need of total refurb (I think may be ubderway). That said the staff were VERY friendly and helpful dealing with issues as they arise and making me feel welcome. My room was dirty when I checked in but when I 'complained'I was immediately upgraded to a suite which was an appreciated gesture. Bed...

Hi there, Thank you for your well balanced feedback. The whole team here absolutely love helping people and I couldn't agree more that they are our greatest asset. Refurbishment has commenced and is slowly making it's way through the hotel. I am sorry that you were victim to a dirty room upon check in but am very pleased that the...

Reception was friendly. Rooms are fairly generous in size. Very outdated hotel. If having breakfast there make sure they have enough of everything before paying $25 pp. As we were left not getting what we specifically wanted.
