Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Room and view were excellent and the king bed very comfortable. The kitchenette was fully equipped, but could have had more ordinary black tea bags. Lighting was non intrusive and the air conditioning powerful and easy to adjust. Bathroom was fine. Breakfast proved economical with great service and tasty food.

Got upgraded to a lovely suite will full kitchen amenities. Location is not ideal for walking to any attractions or restaurants. However the restaurant in the hotel is very good and we enjoyed a breakfast and supper there. Nice clean and modern place.

Disappointed with the restaurant and bar being closed. The room service was terrible. Came in a foil pack and with one lamb shank only no veggies or anything. It gave me the runs. Another lady said that when she rang for room service that they said they were going to check the freezer and see what they had. But then said what they had was out of date. Explains that. No one there to check out. Gym was closed and heavy construction starting early. I won’t be staying there again.

The beds and pillows are the fluffiest we've ever felt and sunk right in and had a lovely night sleep. Great location, so close to everything. Free parking is a bonus! Staff are extremely helpful. The bathroom amenities are extra mile. We will definitely be back!

Perfect place to stay. Close to airport, great restaurants in both Kingston and Manuka. Clean, friendly staff, comfortable beds and all the nice little touches. We will be staying there again! Parking was free and the hotel was quiet, offered room service, restaurant and everything that we needed. Perfect stay and would recommend staying at the Diplomat.

Very nice building, the rooms are clean and well appointed. The receptionist could have been clearer re some of our queries. The staff were generally very polite and accomodating however the execution was lacking. We booked breakfast as a family, we waited for everyone to arrive and then ordered together Two breakfasts were served but four people waited 40 minutes then I went to chase up the order. Sometimes the explanation is worse than the lack of service. Five staff were loitering around not delivering coffees that had been prepared in order to polish some tables. Finally after 10 more minutes the lukewarm breakfasts arrived. No return to this place we are driving back through Canberra but will look elsewhere.

sabina wrote a review Jan 2024
Adelaide Hills, Australia11 contributions18 helpful votes
We chose Ramada as it was a 3 minute walk from the railway station, 4 km from Fyshwick hire cars and a pleasant 1km from Manuka restaurants and less to the Lake walkway and the main icons like Portrait Gallery, National Library etc. Great for easy travel. The breakfast deal filled us up all day, saving money and the accom was spacious, very clean and extremely comfortable sleeping. It's not a fun or social place but it does its job and the staff were very professional. Look for cheaper third party deals as they tend to beat the door price. PS There's a laundry in the basement. Machines do a great job of wash and dry but allow for 2 hours.
