My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary so I thought I would surprise her with a weekend in Canberra. After dining regularly at the QT in Sydney (which is my wife's favourite restaurant), the new QT seemed like and obvious choice. The exterior of the building is nothing fancy, but when you walk in through the doors the... More

I wanted to like this property so much as it looked like a real cool place to stay in Canberra but I chase to say I was very disappointed. I had previously stayed at the QT in Sydney and liked it. I arrived at 3:30 pm to be greeted by a guest clerk who clearly did not like to be... More

I recently had my birthday at Lucky's Speakeasy Bar and had a fantastic night All of my guests and myself felt that the service at Lucky's was exceptional and the food was delicious and a good amount. We all had a lot of fun and it was very relaxed. The area designated for us was also very suitable. Our waitress... More

I recently had my first experience at the QT Canberra, and it won't be my last. The hotel has a humorous political theme to its decor, which gives a real sense of character to the place. More importantly, the rooms are neat and clean with all the expected facilities, and the bathroom had a very a nice shower. Wifi was... More

Make sure you pop into Lucky's for a drinks or yummy nibbles. The drinks are expertly made, the staff are lovely and the music is melodic a mix of funky beats. We had some delicious nibbles as well the whiskey slider was sensational ! A very atmospheric evening we will be back for more! Many Thanks.

I was stoked to find out that QT have taken over a hotel in Canberra and this one does not disappoint. It has all the funky retro style of QT's Gold Coast hotel, from cool music as you arrive, through to awesome decor in the rooms. The beds are comfortable, shower is good and good facilities like free wifi, good... More

We stayed two nights. The update is great. The rooms are funky and well dressed. Service is very good. But the lifts...our room was next to the lift well and it was like sleeping next door to a tram. My advice is to insist in a room away from the lifts. The walls are also a little thin as I... More

Hi Muscateer22, Thanks kindly for letting us know that your loved the decor and update to the property. It's really wonderful to hear. We will get testing on those rooms next to the lifts. Maybe a little more sound proofing is required to guarantee a great nights sleep (so important!). Thanks again, Sas QT More

Refurb is impressive, on site parking at $12 per night won't guarantee an under cover space. Room service menu is too modern. This hotel needed love but it has not justified the increase in rates. Weird and very loud sounds every 30 mins like a rusty ironing board extending.

We have just spent 2 nights here and loved the revamp of everything (almost). The bed was very comfortable and even though we got a great price through Wotif they organised our daughters junior suite to be next to our standard queen room as we requested. The breakfast we thought was great when it was Rydges Lakeside but it is... More

Hi Shirley G, Thanks so much for a gorgeous review. Sounds like we hit the spot on everything for you. We love T2 as well! So perfect for this chilly weather.

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
