I had thought the QT hotel in Canberra would become our regular place to stay during our frequent trips to Canberra. No longer after this weekends disappointment. We booked a package that included the cost of parking. When we came to park the car there were no designated spots. When I raised this with the receptionist she amazingly told me... More

I attended an industry dinner at the QT and was immediately impressed with the décor, character and fresh approach taken by the hotel. Staff were very friendly and the rooms were modern and different which is refreshing for a hotel. We went to the bar before dinner and had some beautiful cocktails which were reasonably priced. The menu selection was... More

We had a great room on 11th floor - had everything you could need. Hotel has been refurbished to a high standard very recently and we had a delightful stay. We booked a package with breakfast which was very good indeed. We also ate in the hotel on 3 occasions and had a lovely meal each time. There are also... More

The renovation on this hotel makes is funky and fun. All the political paraphernalia adds to the atmosphere. The standard room was very comfortable complete with balcony and outlook over City Hill. Breakfast was particularly sensational, with fresh food and great presentation compared with the usual hotel buffet fare.

As a frequent visitor to Canberra, and have stayed at most of the best, Hyatt, Burberry Realm etc, tried this hotel (QT) , the old Rydges because of its location. Pleasantly surprised even though a 2.30am "fire alarm" was a bit disturbing. A false alarm. A beautiful and stylish fit-out with superb amenities. Bar area large and relaxing, great service....

Hi Russell C, Thanks so much for a wonderful review. A 2:30am fire alarm! I would have to agree that this would be incredibly disturbing. We really appreciate you being so fair with your review despite the hiccup and can't wait to take care of you again soon. Sas QT More

We stayed the night to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had a great night of drinks with friends followed by one of the BEST Steaks I've ever had at the Capital Bar and Grill! Loved the quirkiness and political theme of the hotel. The bed was really comfortable and the rooms have been refurbished really well since we last stayed... More

It plays on the whole 'Canberra as the seat of political power and intrigue' thing in a fun and quirky kind of way. Rooms are comfortable and functional. The lobby and bar area is a great place to meet and wind down at the end of the day. The New Acton precinct is Canberra's new happening place and it's not... More

QT is in a handy spot and as other reviewers have noted, the political theme is spot on. The foyer and bar/restaurant areas look great and there was a good selection of drinks. The check in service is also good. Having stayed at the amazing QT in Sydney, I had pretty high expectations of the rooms which didn't quite get... More

Stayed 2 nights here for a business meeting. I had always stayed here when it was Rydges Lakeside so did not know what to expect from QT. I was pleasantly surprised with fab quirky decor, friendly helpful staff. The place has had a complete overhaul and has a funky political theme. My room was comfortable, clean and had an emergency...

I stayed recently at QT Canberra for a single night get away. I have stayed at QT Gold Coast and QT Port Douglas so I was interested to see how the theme would continue in the nation's capital and I was pleasantly surprised. The Political Theme is a nice touch and a bit of fun and the work that has... More
