We have been loyal to the QT brand for some time now after having spent our wedding night in a suite in the QT Sydney. It has never disappointed. We love the quirky decor, friendly staff and feeling of contemporary luxury while still being very good value. The restaurant in particular (Capitol Bar and Grill) is excellent and the breakfast...

Pleasant stay for an overnight business trip. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. The bed felt like I was sleeping on a cloud, very comfortable which is important when travelling for work. My only concern was the front of house staff. Their manner was neither warm nor friendly when greeting guests and processing for check in. As front of house...

While my mum was visiting, we stayed at QT Canberra. Parking per day was a quarter of what you would pay elsewhere, the check-in process was seamless, staff were efficient and personable, and the rooms edgy and comfortable. In-room dining was as good as the dining experience in the onsite restaurant, Capitol Bar & Grill, and the hotel is located...

I'm a massive fan of the QT Hotels but there is something about QT Canberra that is really different to all the others. The ambience is just unparalleled, the service is absolutely impeccable and the food...I can't even begin to explain how good the food is. The hotel is also very reasonably priced for the amount of quality you are...

This hotel is well located in central Canberra - you are only a all or short drive from most of the well known attractions. Check in was quick and efficient and there is also a secure underground carpark. This is an older hotel (c1980s?) that has been 'done up' with a funky politician based decor, the rooms are smallish but...

Great little quirky hotel in Canberra. Cool hotel rooms with heaps of room comfy beds and big bathrooms. Staff were lovely and check in was easy. Staff were great in recommending local restaurants and cafes for dinner and lunch. Will stay again for sure.

Hi Happydinner91! We appreciate you taking the time to leave us your review. Happy to hear that you received excellent service from our staff.

The hotel looks pretty funky from the foyer but once you get into the room, the quirky touches are just cosmetic distractions and don't really translate in the drab, small and tired rooms. Had a few nice cocktails in the bar downstairs over the course of the weekend getaway and the service was nice enough. Drinks were inventive and fun,...

Hey Sass_uncensored, Sounds like your neighbours might have enjoyed our cocktail list just as much as you did... Or maybe more! Let us know next time you're coming back through, and we'll make sure your room is away from the lifts for a nice peaceful stay. Thanks Lauren

Stayed one night only. Staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. regardless of hotel location or shift. Room was great and CLEAN - mattress and pillows wonderfully comfortable, decor upto date. I dislike using bathrooms not my own, but found this one to be clean. Just a couple of spots of mould at the foot of the shower, but hey that...

Stayed in a Queen room overlooking Lake Burley Griffin, absolutely stunning of an evening. Bar had a great vibe with very friendly staff. Shout out to the reception girls who served me, great job. Highly recommended.

My second stay here and it did not disappoint. We were checked in promptly and given a room on the 4th floor facing the London Circuit roundabout - I did ask for a lake view room but they were unable to help me.

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
