I’ve travelled to Canberra so much that it almost feels like home. My hotel of choice is the Realm, but have experienced long stays in the Burberry and enjoy Little National. As a business traveller, I’ve come to expect a certain level of quality in a hotel, which the Realm delivers, but it is the unexpected pleasures that make me...

Currently at an event here. Most boring entertainment, cold food, warm wine. Do not have an event here. In all fairness I can't blame the hotel for the entertainment choice, but the cold food and warm wine is all the hotel.

Great Executive rooms (recently refurbished I believe) - minimalistic yet well equipped. Staff are always on point. Excellent gym facilities - one of the best hotel gyms around. Some great fine dining options and trendy bars closeby.

This hotel has great quality rooms, finishings and fittings. Don't expect a HUGE amount of space along with that though. The rooms are comfortable but you wont be able to do cartwheels. The beds are super comfortable and the bar downstairs gets a lot of local traffic and a good atmosphere Thu-Sat evenings.

This is a great hotel which is new, clean and very modern. You can even check in and out on your phone! We stayed for a wedding and had a great two night stay. Breakfast was very good. The only thing I didn't like was the lifts/elevators! They were sooooooo slow! It was ridiculous. And you can't use the stairs....

One of the main problems with this Hotel is that you never know what you will get. there is a wide variety of rooms varying from great to awful. I have stayed here a number of times and have had decent room, from an upgraded apartment style room to normal hotel room, both good once you find where they hide...

We stayed at Hotel Realm for two nights. The suite was very spacious and had everything you could need. Bathroom amenities were good, the bed and pillows were super comfortable with a high quality doona as well. Emily at check-in was brilliant. Emily was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Well done Emily. We walked to the National Art Gallery and to...

We have stayed previously at The Realm, Barton and were very comfortable. This time we had the benefit of checking-in online and they really listened to my request to be away from the elevator. They even gave us a larger room than previously which was a delight to spend 5 days in. The Staff were helpful and friendly without being...

I had to change my review because this is really not acceptable. Rooms are dirty and small and not really a 5 star hotel room. Bathroom is so close to the bed and the shower is so weak you need forever to wash off the soap. And yet forget all that ... it's all nothing when it comes to the...
