I've stayed at Realm before, and while it is a very nice hotel, I feel it is not comparable to 5 star hotels in Sydney and overseas. However, Konobo, their restaurant, does absolutely delicious food (although their red wine selection leaves something to be desired)
All in all, I would stay at Realm again, and recommend it, but I would do so with a word or two of caution - no matter what, our room both times has been way too hot (even in Canberra winter!) but this was helped last time by opening the sliding door to the balcony.
The beds are comfy, the decor is nice, the giant bathtubs are wonderful and I'll never say no to nespresso machines! But the service is always a little cold at the front reception, and the parking is really hard to find unless you've been before.
