For my sisters & B in-law anniversary we had a high tea at the Realm. Approx 60 family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the high tea. Unfortunately I blew my calorie count, but it was worth it! Loved the little smoked salmon roles, and the creme brûlée was superb! I, a seller of fine antique china, prefer this form of china... More

Great place near Parliment House. We were travelling through on our way to Melbourne, perfect for us. The bar staff are very formal and friendly, gym well equiped and nice. Rooms were good too with amazing robes - so much so I looked the company up to buy one myself!

This hotel competes very strongly with others in canberra. The rooms are lovely and the bathrooms pleasant. A kitchen in some rooms is handy as is having a second tv. Staff are pleasant and act quickly. The toiletries are first rate. A different atmosphere to the Hyatt.

We attended the Realm Hotel for a High Tea held for a 50th Birthday. We were in one of the function rooms. The staff were very attentive and took care of everything beautifully. The food was great. The appointment was in the china used. If your going to serve coffee in a pot then it should be in a coffee... More

What a lovely surprise this hotel was. Such a huge room albeit a bit dark being on the inside of the U shaped building so not much sunlight. That said the toiletries (Malin & Goetz), and the beautiful bathroom, luxurious bed linen, big kitchen.. all made up for it. There was also a big balcony off the room but it... More

For a long time we have complained about the boring hotel choices available for travellers coming to Canberra. However over the past few years a Canberra has enjoyed a number of new hotel choices. This week I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Realm and it was a wonderful experience. Great management and staff and the layout and facilities... More

Lovely smaller hotel in Canberra focused on the business/political traveller but has all bases covered. We stayed as a tourist couple & thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights. Very comfortable room with all mod cons, tasty but not over-expensive F&B outlets & friendly, helpful staff at all levels. Highly recommended.

I recently stayed at Hotel Realm on a Monday night and stayed in an Executive Suite. The Hotel along with the whole precinct is beautiful. Close to restaurants and services and the hotel staff with nothing but fantastic. I would highly recommend.

Firstly, in their defence the Hotel Realm is really no worse than other Canberra hotels where business comes too easily. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, the bathrooms spotlessly clean. However, a five star hotel room service needs to do better than burgers and pizzas. My stay coincided with a 'kitchen renovation' which meant choice was limited, and even the... More

Got a good deal on one of the suites and I thought I'd try it out. Very nicely furnished hotel, with a large living area + lounge, as well as a large kitchenette and a separate working area. Massive bed and a very well appointed bath/shower. Will definitely be back given the opportunity.
