Although only just opened as a QT branded hotel, the former Rydges hotel is all understated glam, and one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in for a while. It might be a booze talking (from the free drink coupons I scored with my wotif booking), but the room is good, the restaurant is great (both food and service), and... More

We stayed in the Canberra QT on the way back from the snow for one night. We booked a Junior Suite, thinking it would offer us more space for the 4 of us. 2 Kids and 2 Adults. I am a big fan of the QT hotels in Sydney, Port Douglas and the Gold Coast, so I was really looking... More

Hi Woogsworld, Thanks for your review. Thanks also for the gorgeous notes on the other QT properties. Unfortunately there was a lapse in communication that meant your fold out was not made up. Many apologies. This can be rectified by a call down to reception should it occur again. Whilst not optimum, it is something we can fix for you... More

A Class all round! Rooms were fresh, hip and well equipped. All the little extras; slippers, robes and even umbrellas at our disposal if needed, perfect! The foyer was modern and attractive. We didnt have the chance to use the restaurant or dining, but it looked great from what we could see. I'll definitely be back if I need accom... More

I have stayed here in earlier days when this hotel had another name and was very ordinary. What a pleasant change - we had a very comfortable stay at the QT to celebrate my birthday. We had a superb dinner (with a birthday candle when my dessert arrived) and a amazing breakfast as part of a package offered in conjunction... More

I stayed at QT Canberra recently for a work conference and was absolutely blown away but the entire experience. Yes from the outside the hotel isn't flashy but once you enter through those doors you enter into a nice surprise. The hotel is politically themed with funky wallpaper and decals throughout the foyer, the restaurant looks superb with the open... More

Ate at the restaurant, very nice food and interiors, also had a drink at "Speak Easy" bar, very cool. At last Canberra has a precinct being New Acton, for great food, a place to have a drink or even go to the movies.

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

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
