I stayed two nights for a total cost of $322. After reading all the other reviews I was expecting to love the Diamant but unfortunately it was just okay for me. The positives: The reception staff were fantastic, incredibly helpful and professional, and very friendly and welcoming. Yay :) The room was funky and well presented, and the bed was... More

My experience was a bit different from some reviews below. The room had big windows so there was plenty of natural light, with amazing blackout curtains that were extremely effective. I had a ground floor room and the windows could be opened to outside. The bathroom lighting was pleasant, and while not especially bright it was not too dim, plenty... More

Recently spent 5 nights at the Diamant. Location is great. The bed is so comfortable I have ordered the same topper for my own bed at home. The comfy bed, quiet location and block out curtains ensure a good night's sleep. The products, eg shampoo, conditioner, body lotion etc. are free of sulphates, parabens and petro-chemicals. Personally I really appreciate... More

Stayed here 2 nights for a holiday. First time in canberra and a great central place to walk to shops/dining. The hotel is amazing like all 8hotels I've stayed in quite boutique rustic feel. The lobby has a fireplace and sofas the reception staff were very nice. :-) Recieved a free upgrade from our shoebox room to a deluxe (disabled... More

We had to look for a hotel for tow days stay in Canberra. The Diamant was recommended and we were not disappointed. A smaller intimate hotel which had an old world charm but all the rooms were modern. The staff were courteous efficient and helpful. The hotel and a comfy bar and a great restaurant. A pleasure to stay there.... More

So glad I chose this boutique hotel for my stay in Canberra last Saturday night as it's located a 15 minute leisurely walk from the Centre of the City. The king size room was stylish, spacious and quiet with a superbly comfortable bed. I found the Reception team to be genuine and obliging with a "can do" attitude.
