Wouldn't return. Too old to carry own luggage half a km along corridors, round corners and up stairs. Wont be surprised if I'm charged more than once - gave cc details on booking, arrival and departure. Better places accept it when you say you havent used the mini bar etc.

Old world charm, open fire, great friendly service, best rib eye, terrible wifi at a cost. Only doing one night but would be tempted by the hotel to stay...just a nice feel good hotel.

What a lovely hotel. We had 2 nights, very restful. Our car was parked just outside in the car park, which makes life easy. Excellent position, we walked into Kingston for dinner, 15 minutes! Staff were polite and always greeted us when we came and went. Wonderful experience, we'll be back soon I hope!

I stayed here on the 29th August for the first time. From the time of check in through to my evening meal through to check out the experience was incredible and I highly recommend a stay at this hotel. The Check in gentleman was even kind enough to show me Ben Chifley's room (Number 180) which was THE reason I... More

Had our wedding reception & wedding night at the Kurrajong 12 years ago. Returned for the first time over the weekend - gorgeous refurbishment - comfortable, clean, luxurious. Fire in reception was lovely. Staff were very professional. A stand-out accommodation option.

Hotel Kurrajong is a little out of the way, being close to Old Parliament House, but if you don't mind being on that side of town this hotel is a great pick. We stayed two nights while in town for ANU open day. Parking was easy right out front and the staff were excellent. Our rooms were just as ordered... More

We stayed for 4 nights and the hotel was very pleasant. The rooms we had ( on the first floor) were small and it was a bit odd having booked king/twin rooms for single occupancy that 2 of us had single bed layouts in our rooms when a king bed could have been made up. The food in the restaurant... More
