Great experience to stay in such an interesting ultra modern hotel. Very interesting use of recycled materials. Room very comfortable. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Enjoyed late lunch in A Baker - charcuterie board very impressive as were the oysters. We had dinner in Monster Kitchen bar - area was a bit busy with many enjoying a Friday night drink. Dinner was well presented and tasty but we felt it a little overpriced.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Hotel is a collaboration of designers, artists, artisans and fantasists. We have 68 rooms - we call them Cosy, Original, Creative and Meandering. And we have six apartments just across the road in the NewActon village - we call these the Design Icons. The hotel is all about the beauty of domesticity, the curious, the well made and the comfortable. The rooms have taken inspiration from the concept of the Australian shack. Clay rendered walls, natural fibre wallpaper, salvaged oak beds, eucalypt oriented strand board cupboards, windows that open, rain showers, a view onto the fernery or the lake and the gumtrees... Each room is individual, dressed with contemporary artworks, collected objects and reupholstered mid-twentieth century furniture. Our big time love of art is also found at the bar and lounge on the ground floor - kitted out with furniture and art by Australian designers and artists such as Lucy McCrae, Charles Wilson, Adam Goodrum and Anna-Willi Highfield. Hotel Hotel lives in the environmentally driven Nishi building at NewActon, Canberra's cultural and artistic precinct. NewActon also houses some of Canberra's best restaurants and bars, the Palace Electric cinema, and is forever interesting thanks to the music gigs, art shows, festivals and markets that happen here. Being in the precinct also means that you're just a bike ride away from everything else that's happening in Canberra, and that you're close to the airport when it's home time. Sometimes the good things take a bit longer. This is the case with the restaurant kitchen. We are getting it just right before we open with our full menu. For now, the head chef, Sean McConnell is serving a simple, seasonal breakfast from the bar on the ground floor. For lunch and dinner we recommend a pre-drink in the Lobby and then over to A.Baker and Mocan and Greengrout just across the road. A.Baker is a high achiever - a restaurant serving bistro style food, a bakery specialising in sourdough bread and pastries, and an underground speakeasy with an impressive selection of domestic distillations and local wines. They get it all right. Mocan and Greengrout is a beautifully domestic restaurant with an open kitchen and a love for locally sourced food. The atmosphere is relaxed and wholesome and the food is excellent. They do BYO, which you can buy from the Urban Foodstore around the corner. Also in the precinct is Bicicletta for traditional Italian home cooking, and the Parlour Wine Room for tapas, cocktails and desserts. We look forward to having you at the restaurant soon, but for now we know you will enjoy the offerings in the precinct. Come and stay. ... more less
