We stayed here as part of a group. The staff were very friendly and down to earth and went out of their way to help. The meals they served were extremely good; better than expected. We had a Buffett for two nights and a 3 course on the last night. All went as good as expected. The room got serviced... More

Enjoyed our stay in a refurbished suite. It was well laid out, beautifully furnished, and the bed was extremely comfortable. It was also very reasonably priced. Small issue with a leak below the bathroom sink, but staff were quick to get onto it. The only downsides was the sensor lights in the bathroom. Not being able to turn these off... More

The service was very good and all staff were very polite and... More

I stayed at the Rex for one night and although a bit pricey, it didn't disappoint at all. It's a very modern looking hotel located just outside of the Canberra CBD. The reception staff were very helpful and very professional. The room was quite large and the bathroom was very modern and very clean. It is worth highlighting the hot... More

We stayed at the Rex for one night as we travelled through Canberra. The room was modern and clean, the staff were friendly, and it was great to have a carpark onsite. It was fairly cool overnight and the air conditioner in the room worked great as a heater. Unfortunately there were a few items that let the hotel down... More

Overall we enjoyed our stay. We travelled to Canberra for a conference, and the Rex was close by. We enjoyed our stay (good facilities, comfy room (although the door key, instead of an electronic card was unusual). All the staff were friendly and helpful - most contact we had was the meal and wine section (breakfast and dinner) - the... More

Been to Canberra many times, first time at Rex...not sure why I waited so long. Service was warm, genuine and outstanding; room was modern and well appointed; and the room service was good despite being on the pricey side. I will definitely return.
