Love staying at this hotel. From the moment you arrive, you really feel as though you are staying in someone's home, with the old world charm and the decor so enchanting. The staff are so friendly and you feel so relaxed. The bedroom are a great size and the bathrooms are to die for - you wish you could replicate it at home! Certainly the only place to stay in Canberra.

Greeted at reception on Friday night with efficient & friendly check-in; alongside at another front desk were three smiling faces waiting to greet other guests... They were happily bopping along to the gentleman playing on the grand piano!
Our suite was a great surprise, being upgraded using our membership points was a top idea!
After freshening up we made our way to the restaurant, enjoyed a magnificent seafood buffet, wait staff were super efficient & friendly!

The suite gets top marks for cleanliness!

Would suggest if you intend going to the restaurant for dinner on Saturday evening.... Book ahead!! We were out of luck, they did accommodate us in another part of the hotel!

Also... Make a reservation for Sunday breakfast!

Other than that.... Magic time had!!

Will be going back again!

This is the nicest hotel in Canberra by quite a way - it has real character and old world charm. The rooms are very well appointed and, well.... roomy. Service was very good from font desk to concierge to room service. My only criticism is that the breakfast spread, whilst quite expansive, could have been better. For example I found the hot food not so hot. I will stay there again but probably do brekkie somewhere else.

The service in this hotel is above excellent. The management are extremely helpful and very friendly.
Many thanks for the delicious food in the restaurant and room service, but especially the buffet on Friday night. Simply yummy.

Splendid facilities, service and a historic landmark. The hotel was built to host visiting dignitaries in the thirties and exudes a Great Gatsby feel with doorman dressed in plus fours. The finest breakfast for those not on a diet!

Having been to the Hyatt before for High Tea and having a very pleasant experience in both food and service. I decided to treat my daughter for her birthday last Sunday. We were most disappointed at the entire experience. The food was extremely boring and of very poor quality. Only 2 sad sandwiches and Asian inspired at that! Now there is absolutely nothing wrong with Asian food. We are lovers of it. BUT I was going for 'HIGH TEA' ...the English experience.....!! The scones were day old, rock hard and totally disgraceful in taste and texture. The cakes were either sickly sweet or old and stale. The service provided by staff was very poor, slow, uncaring. Constantly had to ask for a drink or to clear the table. All in all, for $52 per head, it was the worst experience in recent times. A typical Canberra disaster! Perhaps try using a dictionary or the internet for the definition of 'high/afternoon tea'.
"High tea is an English meal that gained popularity in the 1600s, especially among laborers. It was often substantial, contrasted with other types of tea where a few cakes might be served. The meal was often called meat tea because hearty dishes were served, including meat sandwiches and hot cooked food, like meat pies and Welsh rarebit. Cold meats, bread, cheese, crackers, and a variety of desserts like cakes could make up part of the menu"

The Hyatt in Canberra is exquisite ...from the marble bathrooms to the spacious rooms with immaculate linen. But to top it all of was the impeccable service at breakfast. Staff who understand superlative service standards without being intrusive.
Well done Team Hyatt Canberra.
