This is one of my favourite hotels anywhere. You could say it is a shame it is in a place like Canberra, but somehow it suits this place (stuck in a bygone era, but not in a bad way).
I just love the atmosphere which is so redolent of the 1930s, from the architecture down to the way the staff dress. The interiors of the rooms are getting a little tired these days, but they have an opulent luxury with tasteful black-marbled bathrooms that are massive in size.
If you must be in Canberra, it location is perfect: close to the lake and the parks surrounding the Art Gallery and National Portrait Museum as well as the trendy areas of Manuka and Kingston. Of course being Canberra, it is still necessary to have a car, but parking is easy in the hotel grounds.
I have always found the staff to be very welcoming and friendly.
I must confess that I visit Canberra just to stay at this hotel.
