The Realm offers a nice touch of 'cool' to the usual business hotel stay. I was unprepared for cool!

Well designed, modern room facing Parliament House. Nice touches included in rooms like good quality toiletries, an excellent shower, the option of opening a window, Apple TV, an iphone dock, and complimentary slippers. (Deducting points for the queen bed being 2 singles pushed together).

You'll spend 10 minutes working out the lighting system when you first walk in - if you like mood lighting, you'll LOVE this place. If you're the type who spreads paperwork across the bed on working trips, you might need a torch!

Tapas and wine list at dinner was good and buffet breakfast had a decent selection.

Overall a fab option for business or leisure stays. Pleasantly surprised and I'm looking forward to returning at some stage soon.

Realm Hotel works well for business trips. I have been coming since the hotel opened and have hosted many national and international visitors to private functions. The rooms provide enough space and the location allows for private dinners and corporate networking events.

Room Tip: Executive rooms are well worth it for meetings and space to plan

Great location for visiting Turner exhibition and Parliament House. About 15 minute walk to each. Very quiet location during the day and not many restaurants nearby if you don't want to eat at hotel.
We enjoyed the buffet breakfast and considering the low patronage the days we were there the food choice was varied and fresh. The bar at night was a lot of fun with a good atmosphere.
Recommend the Old Bus Depot markets on a Sunday morning down by the lake.
Overall a very enjoyable stay and would certainly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is well equipped and is very spacious. We stayed here for one night only but was impressed by how lovely the place was. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom contained L'Occitane products which I loved! The hotel is a five minute drive away from the city which did not bother us at all. We will definitely be back!

My partner and I stayed at the Realm over the weekend and really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the one bedroom suite which was in a very quiet part of the hotel and guaranteed a good night's sleep. The room itself was lovely, extremely spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was also great with a nice bath and good amenities. We had breakfast downstairs at the restaurant which was good; good selection of foods and it was tasty. Overall service was friendly and five star. The location is good for sites such as Parliament House and the National Gallery. We were impressed with this hotel and would definitely stay again.
