A group of us stayed here for two nights for a work trip and we were all very impressed with this hotel, so much so that it is now on our preferred list of hotels for future stays in Canberra. The room layout was quite standard it is the decor that sets in apart from your stock standard cookie cutter... More

First stay at this hotel. Stayed 10 days. Desk and chamber staffs were friendly, prompt and effective. Rooms were functional. Nespresso coffee was treat. I-net reliable. Ability to control ones own temperature was particularly appreciated. I found the restaurant over-priced, particularly for mediocre fare. Staff is in desperate need of adult supervision. Service ranged from overly attentive to totally inattentive.... More

Had a great stay. Staff were very friendly... especially in the restaurant - both at dinner and breakfast. I was a bit disappointed with the room. Booked a Junior Suite and the lounge area was very small and 'pokey' also the bedroom was quite small - with no real area for two people to have a meal. The room was... More

Lots of good things about the hotel- mainly its location in New Acton where you can catch a movie at the Palace, have a hot chocolate at Max Brenner, or hang out at groovy Macan Green Grout. Also the chance to have a walk around the lake if you need a stretch and fresh air. Much better I think than... More

Stayed here for two nights on a work trip (so can't comment on value for money). QT Canberra is a quirky and fun refurbishment of the Rydges. Quirky furnishings, quirky lamps, rooms have a DeLonghi Nespresso machine and well stocked bar. Breakfast was fantastic, perhaps not as wide a selection as major hotels, but everything done very well. Great scrambled... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights (Mon-Wed). The hotel has a politico/paparazzi style with a speakeasy bar that you access through a retro barbers shop. All very cool. The main restaurant/bar is atmospheric with delicious food and great service. Their turkey club sandwich is the best I've ever tasted! I'd asked for a room with a view... More

I've sent a note to the management before writing this review. I haven't had a reply and I'm guessing they could not be bothered to return the email. This hotel is almost like a second home to me, I fly in week in and week out Mondays to Fridays. Overall hotel standards are pretty good, good vibe when you enter... More

Our first stay was a joy! The city view room was a decent size with a queen bed, desk with chair & another chair, great walk-in shower and quality toiletries. BUT, the thing that is undeniable is the quirky decor. It brings a smile and is functional. There's an extensive minibar (if that's your thing). Free wi-fi and in house... More

This hotel is the newly renovated Rydges Lakeside hotel. If you like funky and quirky, this is a great hotel for you! As soon as I arrived by taxi I was greeted the sounds of jazz music which for me set the scene. The whole hotel has a political theme - fitting for Canberra (and I assume QT stands for... More
