Quite a good value hotel. Needs decent bed side lamps so you can actually read as room very dark. Handy location and decent breakfast. Modern and quite sleek but could do with a thorough clean eg old spider webs on balcony. But does have a balcony!

The restaurant has extremely loud music. When we asked if it could be turned down we were informed no because the owners like it loud. Its a pity, because the dinner food was good but I would not choose to eat here again. Music was also so loud in the drive way that 10 people attending the conference were in...

Visiting Canberra for a business trip, our stay at QT was pleasant. The facilities at the hotel are nice, restaurants, cafe and bars! Good food, great breakfasts, bar is very well stocked with a vast variety of spirits and wines. The rooms are comfortable, although basic, and the beds and pillows are nice. We had an alarm go off through...

The Hotel has a quirky feel to it and is beautifully appointed. The room we stayed in was clean, very comfortable and well maintained. We stayed in the State Suite with some friends and our kids and it was spacious and comfortable with amazing views. We even had views of Skyfire from one side of our room. The customer service...

I stayed here for 2 nights for a business trip. On arrival the Hotel is fascinating and has been updated with many fun and quirky features. It is easy to find and get to, has plenty of parking (extra cost per night) and the room was light, had a balcony for fresh air and although it overlooked some busy roads...

The QT has a reputation in Sydney and Melbourne (the ones I have been to), however I feel the QT in Canberra falls just short of the standard I expect. It is located centrally and close the the Newacton food and drink area. The bar just through the Barbershop is great and had good vibes on the Saturday night. The...

Hi Mitul L, Thank you for your review. Our QT hotels are all unique to match the vibe of their cities. QT Canberra has opted for a more political feel with a quirky edge which we love, and often stands out from the rest! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and loved your time in our Lucky's Speakeasy bar! Our...

Enjoyed our stay here, somewhere different to the usual setup. I loved the views of Canberra from the (small) balcony. The rooms were clean and quiet, and there was a large selection of free and recently released movies. I missed out on the breakfast but my husband thoroughly enjoyed it. The location was a 15min walk from the city centre...

Hey Napen01, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We're super excited that you enjoyed your stay with us. We would definitely accept that recommendation, and hopefully see you shortly! You need to come back and try our breakfast - perhaps too many late night movies? Safe travels, Shannon.

Have stayed a few times at the QT, staff always friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed an evening drink in the well stocked bar. Parking available but can be limited when busy. Rooms comfortably furnished and decorated with quirky artwork. Only a couple of minor points - no extractor in the bathroom so very steamy even after a quick shower. Secondly...

So I decided the hubby and me required a date night, so wanting somewhere close and fun I chose the QT Canberra. I have stayed at QT Sydney which definitely outdoes QT Canberra, Sydney seemed quirky and fun whereas Canberra had more of that 'run of the mill' feel!! Our Room had a balcony which I love as there is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
QT Canberra sits within the iconic Lakeside hotel that has been the scene of many a handshake deal and long lunch. In the great tradition of Australian politics we do business with a wink and a nod and know that after a gruelling day of question time (from the kids or the leader of the opposition) you need a place to put your feet up an a soft bed to fall into. Our 205 guest suites are kitted out with designer decor and all the business savvy mod cons we know you need to get the job done. Expect a seamless technology offering and a team geared to assist you with any left-field requests. ... more   less
