3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room on 2nd floor looks over a slab of concrete, is tiny and the harsh towels are labelled 'Rydges Lake Side' i.e. they are ancestral remnants of the previous hotel on this site. Room would be crowded and cramped for two people I was expecting the wow factor of a QT but it was missing here Over selling of mini... More

My first stay at QT and just one night here was good! Bar and restaurant both acceptable. Quirky bits and bobs available in room was a bit of fun. Service let them down though. Took ages to check in and check out with 3 counters but only one staff member. Interested to try other QT hotels around Australia. My pick... More

The makeover of the venerable Ridges Lakeside to the QT has involved refurbishing the rooms and public areas to look like a downtown New York hotel. The rooms are comfortable and given the building is over 40 years old, they have done well to make the rooms look and feel modern. One if the nights I was there I heard... More

Constant annoyance at hotels charging for all the little extras - parking, credit card fees, wifi etc - QT doesn't actually charge for wifi but are happy to place a small bottle of water by the bed and charge you $4 for it. However good the hotel may be (and QT is not that great) it is these small and... More

Hi Delia_for_pope. Thanks for your feedback. Sorry for the miscommunication, we should have explained our loyalty program more clearly, there are some great benefits! We have addressed this with our team members. As for the credit card surcharge amount, it's applied in accordance with the costs derived from credit card companies and we are not making any additional profits in... More

I've stayed at QT Gold Coast many times and love it. The lobby is hip and happening. In particular the girls uniforms the jump suits are amazing and their attitude and style is new and refreshing. The canberra hotel has the bones but not the vibe. In particular the front desk and uniforms have totally lost the impact compared to... More

Stayed here late January for 1 night.. we booked their standard mountain view queen room.. as part of the encounters package, we were situated on level 12.. the view was amasing as the clouds rolled in in the evening. For what we paid it was awesome value, with the hard cover book from the encounters exhibition included in the price... More

Check in was quiet unpleasant. The receptionist was very cold and not accommodating. Checking into the room we found items from the previous guests (took to reception and the lady said 'oh a bonus for you then!', very unprofessional). The rooms do have all the amenities that you need but the bathroom could have been cleaned better.

I have been a fan of the QT hotels since a visit 12 months ago to QT Sydney and love their understated elegance and quirky feel and QT Canberra definitely didn't disappoint. An understated luxurious experience and particularly loved the little things, like the Nexpresso coffee machine, that are standard in the room. I dined in house at Capital Bar... More

Had a great stay at the QT Canberra. Enjoyed quirky nature and friendly staff. Room very good and deal with Encounters at Australian Museum excellent. Breakfast to die for. Location great for touring Canberra.

I think I've stayed in most hotels in Canberra but this out does them all. I was delighted with the rooms as they were clean and fresh. The hotel offers room service or Resturant dinning. Breakfast is a must as they offer amazing fresh food. They also offer $12.00 parking so your car will be safe.
