The QT has a reputation in Sydney and Melbourne (the ones I have been to), however I feel the QT in Canberra falls just short of the standard I expect. It is located centrally and close the the Newacton food and drink area. The bar just through the Barbershop is great and had good vibes on the Saturday night. The...

Hi Mitul L, Thank you for your review. Our QT hotels are all unique to match the vibe of their cities. QT Canberra has opted for a more political feel with a quirky edge which we love, and often stands out from the rest! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and loved your time in our Lucky's Speakeasy bar! Our...

Enjoyed our stay here, somewhere different to the usual setup. I loved the views of Canberra from the (small) balcony. The rooms were clean and quiet, and there was a large selection of free and recently released movies. I missed out on the breakfast but my husband thoroughly enjoyed it. The location was a 15min walk from the city centre...

Hey Napen01, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We're super excited that you enjoyed your stay with us. We would definitely accept that recommendation, and hopefully see you shortly! You need to come back and try our breakfast - perhaps too many late night movies? Safe travels, Shannon.

Have stayed a few times at the QT, staff always friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed an evening drink in the well stocked bar. Parking available but can be limited when busy. Rooms comfortably furnished and decorated with quirky artwork. Only a couple of minor points - no extractor in the bathroom so very steamy even after a quick shower. Secondly...

So I decided the hubby and me required a date night, so wanting somewhere close and fun I chose the QT Canberra. I have stayed at QT Sydney which definitely outdoes QT Canberra, Sydney seemed quirky and fun whereas Canberra had more of that 'run of the mill' feel!! Our Room had a balcony which I love as there is...

Overall my stay was quite comfortable. The Wifi signal was strong and consistent. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. A couple of very minor negatives; While wonderful to have, I didn't use the coffee pod machine as it hadn't been cleaned for some time. There was old coffee residue inside the machine...

We had mix feeling about QT Canberra. Overall we had a pleasant stay. Could have been five star but got held back by a few little details they missed. Check in was quick but more on the too quick side. More details about my booking could be told such as hotel facilities, if my stay come with breakfast and where...

The rooms are lovely and quiet. The staff are friendly and everything works as it should. They were able to give me a late check-out upon request and couldn't have been nicer. Its very close to the Australian National University, cinemas and restaurants

I really like this hotel and this time was no exception. Comfortable beds, polite and obliging staff, nice bathroom products. Great music and really happy vibe all added to a relaxing mini break. We ate inhouse one evening and the food was delicious, and service prompt.

We have previously stayed at the QT Sydney which is excellent so we decided to try the QT Canberra for an overnight trip. The accomodation is nothing short of embarrassing. We booked a junior suite hoping to have some extra space as we were taking our 4 month old. The room(s) 1006, we were given appear to have previously been...

QT was funky and fun as expected. Breakfast was good and the beds were comfortable. Th e hotel is 2 mins walk to the lake.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
QT Canberra sits within the iconic Lakeside hotel that has been the scene of many a handshake deal and long lunch. In the great tradition of Australian politics we do business with a wink and a nod and know that after a gruelling day of question time (from the kids or the leader of the opposition) you need a place to put your feet up an a soft bed to fall into. Our 205 guest suites are kitted out with designer decor and all the business savvy mod cons we know you need to get the job done. Expect a seamless technology offering and a team geared to assist you with any left-field requests. ... more   less
