Could not have been more surprised at the rebirth of the tired old Lakeside hotel in Canberra: modern & vibrant, good menus, good service, centrally located, reasonably priced, especially with PriorityGuestRewards. My top choice for Canberra.

Got a booking through Luxury Escapes. Fabulous hotel. Fabulous staff. The air con in our room was not working the first night so we were upgraded to a suite the next day which were were very grateful for. Enjoyed the bar at night & indulged in a few cocktails. The restaurant was very good, in fact after our busy days...

Had a great 1 night stay at QT Canberra - nice restaurant although food is a little expensive, but service is very attentive and room was very comfortable. Hotel is in a central location and the included parking on-site was really convenient.

QT has been renovated to a stylish level. The rooms are clean comfortable and sufficienty spacious. I liked the fact the windows could open onto a balcony and it was possible to walk onto the balcony for fresh air. If I had a criticism it was that there are too many knick knacks and items for sale in each room-...

I rate this hotel for its location, its staff and its lack of boring, non-descript, beige decors favoured by so many other hotel chains. The photographer in the lift makes me flinch every time. Staff are friendly, happy and genuinely interested. I like the crazy of the rooms and the Nespresso coffee maker. Wish the coffee pods were stronger but...

The hotel was perfect, it was clean and tidy. The room had a great view. The hotel staff were very friendly and the food was good. The only thing that let the food down was the cheap advertising goods in the room

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
QT Canberra sits within the iconic Lakeside hotel that has been the scene of many a handshake deal and long lunch. In the great tradition of Australian politics we do business with a wink and a nod and know that after a gruelling day of question time (from the kids or the leader of the opposition) you need a place to put your feet up an a soft bed to fall into. Our 205 guest suites are kitted out with designer decor and all the business savvy mod cons we know you need to get the job done. Expect a seamless technology offering and a team geared to assist you with any left-field requests. ... more   less
