Overall the refurbishment is impressive. My room was quiet and very comfortable. The service was slow in the dining room and at check out. I would prefer plain tea in my room rather than earl grey or peppermint.

I had previously stayed at the Kurrajong for work and had enjoyed it, but since the renovation it has improved immeasurably. The room was clean, quiet and stylish. The bathroom and shower excellent. There was a really good hair dryer and a shower cap available (important for female guests). I enjoyed delicious room service and an excellent breakfast in the dining room. The staff were courteous and friendly. The only downside was that there was only one meat free meal on the room service menu and it was all very expensive. The staff are obviously new and still learning, but this will surely improve with time. The hotel has been beautifully updated and I will definitely stay here again.

This hotel was built in 1926 in the early days of Canberra and was used as accommodation by the politicians of the time. It has recently been renovated very tastefully and it's old world charm has been skilfully maintained while facilities in the rooms have been brought up to 21st century standards. The coffee machines in the bedrooms were a nice touch. The open fireplace in the reception lounge area is very welcoming. It is very handy to the Australian National Gallery, the Portrait Gallery and Old Parliament House. The beds were very comfortable and the area quiet so we had a wonderful sleep.
Breakfast was nice but very expensive and next time we'd just grab a coffee and croissant from one of the cafes down the road. The hotel is extensive and some of the rooms are a long way from reception. The rooms suitable for guests with disabilities are right at the far end of the hotel which seems a bit odd. If you have mobility problems you should try to get a room close to reception. The hotel is very interesting if you have any interest in Australian political history and the walls are lined with pictures of politicians who have stayed there. There is even the room where the sixteenth Prime Minister of Australia, Ben Chifley, lived while in Canberra.

This is a great hotel with a lot of history and atmosphere. A nice foyer area with a gas log fire to have a drink. It has been renovated and is top class.
A bit away from the restaurant areas. location is fine if you have your own vehicle.

As first time guests at Kurrajong, we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. We enjoyed everything about it, and will be staying there next visit. The Dining Room staff were especially good, and due to a problem due to numbers on the Saturday morning (from the Dawn Service) and considerable delays, they definitely made up for it on the Sunday. Highly rate the hotel, staff and the whole environment.
