Lovely hotel in general except the noise from the party in full swing downstairs - possibly a design flaw as the sound goes straight up to the rooms which many seem to overlook the central foyer area. I think I got upgraded to a suite (not advised on checkin!) as the room was huge and had a kitchenette, dining area,... More

This was a last minute mystery deal where we didn't know the hotel name until booked. It is a 5 star hotel, and the rooms very nice. Staff very helpful. However personally, I just didn't like it. More of a business hotel. No charm.The area it is in is very bland. Luckily not too far a walk to Manuka where... More

With a very convenient location and in a quiet street, we were happy with our 2 night stay here recently. There is a medical centre and pharmacy around the corner, organic healthy food at Maple and Clove across the road, a spa, pool, fitness centre and hairdresser and a couple of different restaurant styles onsite. We ate at Konoba for... More

This Hotel is elegent minimalism in Architectual form, but also minimal with lighting over the bathroom mirror, a broken light fitting & no full length mirror made, getting ready for a function a bit of guess work if your a gal. A part from that the hotel was beautifully clean, the bed fantastic & the breakfast very good. Sorry no... More

I have just recently attended a close friends wedding reception and all I can say it was marvellous! It was held in one of the conference rooms to seat a little over 100 people. Upon arrival we were served hor derves and drinks. The staff moved effortlessly and attentively with the drinks and the food. I tested to see if... More

This hotel is rated 5 star, and where it is lovely, very modern design and minimalistic, it just lacked old fashion class and style. More suited to businesses than holiday makers. Is in a lovely spot, however, need a car. Our room was a twin, and it was a generous size but the beds were very close together, the air... More

Not sure how it got a 5 star rating. Will never be back to stay but will come back for the restaurant -- food was amazing. Room very tired looking. Bathroom very dirty. So very noisy that you can't sleep.

Realm is the place of choice for corporate events. Realm able to deliver excellent three course meal and attentive staff ensure all glasses refilled appropriately. Room well decorated and themed for the event. No doubt the back office staff provide the support for the presentations and speeches

We stayed here on a Friday night to visit family in Canberra. We arrived at the hotel at 11pm, driving in from Sydney and was greeted by the receptionist (looking at our attire) asking whether we had arrived at the correct hotel (I understand they have a lower rated sister hotel). Yes - we are in casual clothes since we've... More
