A great location and an amazing hotel. There are plenty of deals for this hotel so the prices are great for what it is. There is secure parking under the hotel for a reasonable price. The entire hotel has a very modern and trendy feel to it. It doesn't go as far as pretentious as it still retains a playful/childish... More

We spent an unexpected night at QT Canberra after our flight from the Gold Coast to Melbourne was diverted to Canberra one evening. It was quite an ordeal - the airport was shut, the airline was unable to book all passengers into hotels for the night, rebook our flights the following day, or even get our luggage off the plane...

Hi Kaseygbk, What a gorgeous review! We are so delighted that we were able to put such a positive spin on what I'm sure was a really stressful and aggravating experience! Big pat on the back to the team. Love it! Hope to see you again soonest, and under more relaxing circumstances. Sas QT More

The room was comfortable and offered a good view from the 12 floor. However the room was overly cluttered with optional extras. Had to get both of our room door passes reactived twice on consecutive days and had difficulty believing the explanation given for their failure. Overall feel the hotel is trying too hard to be cool with hidden bars... More

We were given two nights in this hotel by our daughter. She stayed as well and for one night our 6 year old grandson stayed with us. We had drinks in the bar twice and happy hour was inexpensive. Room was very comfortable and trendy in its decor. Our room had a lovely green view but noise of motor bikes... More

Hi Mjsmith64, Thanks for such a wonderful review. What a lovely gift from your daughter, and it was cool that you all were able to hang out together. Yes - the big bridge tournament! That is one epic occasion in the QT calendar. They are so fun and fierce. Thanks also for the notes on QTique and our bar offerings.... More

I have stayed in this hotel 3times - twice when it was rydges and now QT. Have enjoyed the stay each time. The view to the lake and beyond is great especially as you can open the door to a balcony and stand in fresh air. It's close to Canberra centre shops and restaurants - very convenient. QT decor quite... More

Having stayed at QT on the Gold Coast, which is fantastic, I thought I would give Canberra a go. It was the worst hotel experience I have had a long while.I have never writtten a hotel review but thought others should know this. On our arrival I quickly noticed there was hair all over the bathroom floor, toothpaste still in... More

Hi Sarah H, Thanks kindly - it sounds as though you were checked into a room that had not been cleaned by housekeeping - an accident that occurs on rare occasions in hotels. May apologies for this. I'm delighted that the team took care of you by offering you complimentary drinks as they sought to rectify the issue. We will... More

Good City location. Décor really well thought out and modern feel to the Hotel. The service does not match. Waited too long for services to the room. No excuses. TV not working when I arrived. In Room and Restaurant dinning needs a bank loan.

Liked this hotel very much. Facilities were clean, amenities all present, & I think the glasses had been washed since the last guest. The aircon's temperature controls worked. A nice quiet stylish place. I was made very welcome by the cheery reception staff. Would certainly return. I stayed here in the late 1990s when it was the old Rydges Lakeside,... More
