The room was nice, tidy and modern as advertised. But when we turned up at the reception, the staff tried to charge us extra for our 2 young kids (3 and 6 years old) - beyond and above what we already paid through the Booking.com. Even though after reaching through the booking.com, the total cost Booking.com provided didn't seem to... More

We stayed here a few months ago (Easter holidays) after a shocking stay at a nearby hotel (unfortunately we booked late and Canberra was very busy that weekend and we missed out on our usual Hotel). Anyway we drove around trying to find somewhere else to stay and came across the Rex. We walked in and were very lucky to... More

The location was great. So close to everything! The rooms had everything you needed including kitchen, and the laundry was hidden away behind a cupboard in the bathroom with a washer, dryer and ironing board in it. Apartment was also very spacious and clean. Pool was great and also a nice little gym.

Only had one night in this hotel but found the room to be updated and excellent. Quiet and restful. The hotel restaurant was very empty (it was a Monday night) but the service was woeful. So much so that the receptionist had to come and get the restaurant staff to guide me to the table and then come again to... More

Customer service is first class , rooms are spacious with a great bed. Downstairs in the restaurant there is plenty of room and bar area is adequate, Location to the centre and eating options is very good all within a short stroll. Catering for the individual or group is done with ease -

New renovated kingbed room is really nice with very comfortable bed and good size beautiful bathroom. Two things I dislike are the lighting in the bathroom is too bright and not enough space for toiletries. My room come with free breakfast, not bad but the waitress there needed to improve her service. The check in staff was really friendly and... More

I would like to thank the staff at the Rex Hotel for their amazing service over my weekend stay! We were well taken care of after a small incident during the first night of our stay. Not only did they handle the situation with immense patience and consideration, they upgraded our stay! What a wonderful visit to Canberra!

I have stayed at the Rex twice now on business and both time in the suite. It is very spacious with a big comfy bed, amazing bathroom with three shower heads and lovely bathroom products. Check in has always been seamless and the check in staff friendly. The price has the breakfast buffet included which gives you extensive options. Bacon,... More
