This hotel boasts a great location and is very quirky. Offering 2 bars, both with a different atmosphere but enjoyable in both. Room are spacious and very comfortable. You will enjoy your stay at the QT when you visit Canberra!

We loved staying at the QT in Canberra. Yes the room was small, but they really make the most of the space and the decor was stylish. It really feels like an adults hotel. We enjoyed the complimentary movies and Nespresso. And the bed and pillows were so comfortable I wanted to take them home with me. The only downside...

Liked this Hotel, as it was clean and modern. Rooms nice with a good LG flat screen TV and Pod coffee machine. Comfy bed and nice Robes. Everything you might like in a Hotel. My problem with this place is all the extras, like $12 parking, purchase from your room some Art works, what about buying the robe? Unless you...

the room was very spacious and the restaurant, bars etc looked very good. However, like other comments made you would expect a reasonable gym and a bath in the rooms for the price paid. Good location and most of the staff were welcoming. Very abrupt staff member when we came down the morning of the check out to ask if...

I had an overnight stay just recently. I was very happy with the room, which looked to be recently renovated. The bathroom was very clean and there was a fantastic rain shower. The bed was very comfortable and there was an abundance of pillows. My package included breakfast. The buffet breakfast was very pleasing to look at and was also...

We really like QT as a brand, this is why we picked this hotel in Canberra. We first stayed there in December and we were quite disappointed but didn't share our feedback on TA as we thought an average experience could happen. So we decided to stay again this month. I have to say that the check in experience was...

Hi June12_Trip, Thanks so much for your feedback. Providing our customers with a positively memorable experience is so important to us, so reading that your experience didn’t meet expectations was very disappointing indeed. You've raised some good and interesting points here from your check-in experience that has left me scratching my head as it is most certainly policy to obtain...

Arrived, location good. At first glance was pleased with my selection. Room was adequate, but small for the price compared to Sydney and Melbourne market. Liked the free movies and able to park at the location,. Parking was an extra $20.00 I think? Staff were ok and forfilled their roles, but need a bit more training to give them the...

Love everything at QT Hotel Canberra. Room is spacious with a touch of luxury. Large balcony with the magnificent view of Canberra mountains. Fresh and delicious breakfast in the chic Capitol Bar and Grill restaurant is unexpectedly too good for a hotel. Enjoy every moment of our stay and definitely will go back.

The QT hotel in Canberra is first class hotel situated in the heart of Canberra just a stones throw from Lake Burley Griffin, Parliament House, and other national buildings and attractions. The rooms are fresh, modern, and clean with fantastic bar and dining facilities. Highly recommended hotel for anyone considering a trip to Australia's national capital.

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
