Stayed one night on the forth floor, room facing the entrance road. The room was average size with two double beds and a porta cot for baby. Cot placed under tv which didn't work for the baby so with minimal room we were forced to turn the tv off. Beds were comfortable and linen smooth. There was one single lounge... More

We decided to take our two kids aged 11 and 9 for a visit to Canberra as they no longer go there in year 6 for their school excursion. The hotel was really well located and we were able to walk to the Centre for dinner on one of the evenings we stayed. The night we arrived it was extremely... More

Travelling alone for business is never easy. At the Crowne Plaza in Canberra you are part of the norm. A very comfortable environment for the lone traveller. The staff are helpful and friendly, the rooms neat and clean and the restaurant friendly for singles.

This was our first stay at this hotel, the location is very good. We parked the car and did not have to use it again until we checked out. Loved that we could walk to the attractions and restaurants during our weekend stay. The initial impression of the room upon arrival was a bit of a shock, this isn't a... More

The hotel offers good sized rooms and great mattresses. Unfortunately, they seem to cut corners when it comes to renovation of the quite worn down rooms. There is a lovely staff who seem to be be understaffed, especially during breakfast service. I still give them a very good rating because I hope to return to this hotel in future, after... More

Overall the room was modern, the tv was good, staff friendly and the food at Red Salt was good. But fir the hotel to claim 4.5 stars with the bathrooms they've got and the price they charge is not right They are pure 1970's and it shows, a shower over the bath complete with crusty rubber bath mat? Really?

Stayed here twice now and I love this hotel. The rooms are lovely with good warm aircon, super comfy beds and a great view. Good location, on the end of the mall with large shopping complex nearby and casino next door but still really quiet and private. Also easy to drive to and undercover parking available. The buffet breakfast is... More

Good location near shopping mall and fairly central for all the main attractions. Seemed to be understaffed. They knew it was a busy weekend as the hotel was nearly fully booked, but it was slow to check in, impossible to get through to room service. Room was nice, modern and good amenities, but the mattress felt old and had a... More

This hotel is good and is next to the major Canberra Central shopping complex and Casino. Due to it's City Centre location there was a good deal of traffic noise especially street sweepers and garbage trucks. Why is it that Canberra motorists have to have noisy exhaust systems and drive like hoons? Car parking is expensive, typical Canberra. Breakfast was... More

Let's start with the good - excellent location, clean and comfortable room. And now the bad - the food and the restaurant service. On a cold night we decided to eat in at the Redsalt restaurant. We were hoping for something like the excellent Seasalt restaurant at the Crowne Plaza Newcastle. Unfortunately not. On arrival after eventually being seated we... More
