We were very happy with the large size of our room, lovely bathroom fittings and general set up. Staying in mid winter we were warm and very comfortable in our bed. The desk chair plus sofa provided good seating options and there was good storage. The bathroom floor was freezing but the hot water arrived very quickly. Our bed was... More

Hi thorpedo, and thanks for such a lovely review! Canberra does reach some pretty low temperatures in the winter months, which is why we try to make it as cosy inside the hotel for our guests as possible! That includes our beautiful log fire at reception, and ensuring that our rooms are pre-heated for every weary traveller. Luckily there are... More

Wanted to book a hotel for two nights, for our wedding. Online booking wouldn't allow me to book a deluxe room for 2 adults and our infant. I called reservations direct, and they were really great. Totally helped me out, gave us an upgrade to a premier room, wished us congratulations. Hotel was good. Room was good. Food from nearby... More

Had a big corner room on the top floor. Very comfortable bed, lounge chairs and a desk. First night was freezing cold even with the a/c heating on. The Air con system struggles as the bathroom has 2 walls of windows and when the temperature outside is -1 C it is impossible to achieve any warmth. Second night after leaving... More

Firstly, location is good - very close to the CBD of Canberra and also Australian National University as well as some arty cinemas. The hotel itself is an older building that has been restored and re-purposed, the end result being a pleasant mix of new and old. The atmosphere in the restaurant area is great, service and food pretty good... More

Hello Ashley, thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on TripAdvisor!

Staff at the Diamant Hotel in Canberra were friendly and helpful. Rebeca at reception even mailed my phone charger which I left in my room. The facilities are clean and the place has an arty feel. The room was fresh and clean with great decor. I'd stay again for sure!

I was disappointed with this hotel. The room was very small, not at all worth the price we paid ($300+) and there was no music dock as advertised. The hotel also took a week to refund the bond they withdrew from my credit card. The location is the best thing about this hotel, with a good bar and great restaurants... More
