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.

Was a good experience and the service and room was great I felt a little peeved about and the reason for the low rating is that the breakfast was 'complementary'. We all know that that means that breakfast is added to the bill, regardless of whether we eat it or not, but it also means that you feel compelled to eat breakfast at the hotel My partner couldn't make it so effectively I was paying for two

Stayed here for 2 nights with my son for a quick visit - what an absolute delight ! Beautiful old historic hotel with a beautiful courtyard. The rooms were tastefully decorated and beds very comfortable. Bathroom was also very regal ! Great location to get around !

The dining experience was absolutely horrible. We had a booking at 8pm for my 30th birthday on Saturday. We arrived 10 mins before the booking and was informed our table wasn't ready yet, despite the restaurant having roughly 25 people in at the time. It then took our waiter roughly 10 mins to get our initial drinks order and entrees, with me having to repeat the order multiple times. Our drinks then arrived separately, with my drink arriving after we had eaten our entrees. It then took us a while to get our writer to take our mains and wine order. I again had to repeat multiple times what we ordered and the writer didn't know the wine we were having (the Louis Jadot Bourgogne Des Jacobin) and I wasn't offered a taste or presented the bottle appropriately. When our Mixed Grill came, it was missing the duck sausage, it took me time to flag down the Manager to inform her and that I wanted it all taken back to be plated up appropriately. Instead she just went off and had to wait for our sausages to be cooked while our $120 meal just sat there getting cold. When the sausages arrived they just came our on a plate and were put on the table. The manager completely ignored my request for all the food to be taken and appropriately plated. At this point I had to get up from my table and walk to the Manager to ask if she could appropriately follow our request and she did not understand what I wanted, despite me again having to repeat myself multiple times. I refused to have the meal due to this experience, as this is not a "fine dining" experience as promised. The staff then failed to use our Chifley experience voucher. At this point I left the restaurant and wanted to talk to Saugat about my experience, and thankfully he was as helpful as could be, gave me the managers contact information and ensured he will get them into contact and said to reply to this survey. I was prepared to spend $150+ per head for this dinner as it was for my 30th, but the service was honestly worse than the service I got from McDonald's later that evening, a bit of a disappointing birthday dinner in the end.

Excellent hotel, with good food, comfortable rooms in old world charm. The outside court yard is a great spot to sit with a quiet drink and nibbles. Very relaxing, comfortable chairs. Extremely comfortable bed.

I have stayed here before and every time it is an enjoyment. A great little place and very convenient. Staff were great, the room was well appointed and bed as super comfy. but the beer prices were a bit high.

I found this a lovely hotel with options for dining and comfortable room. The linen was fresh and clean with high quality tea and bathroom supplies. The staff were friendly and helpful with option for late check out which was useful. It is walkable to parliament house and to main government buildings and the lake

Gorgeous little room, had everything we needed, comfy bed and great sofa bed. Nice amenities and bathroom. Service was poor at hotel- towels never came, blankets required 3 phone calls but other than that would recommend. Safe location, nicely appointed and cute bar.

Where to start: There is nothing that we loved, there were multiple detractions over the weekend: 1) breakfast had no buffet, just order from menu. So there was a delay in getting food, and no fruit/light options. A simple buffet would be good. 2) $17 for parking is outrageous especially when it is free out on the street, which is what we did. 3) I booked a package, however the $50 food credit was not applied on checkout. I had to check the tax invoice and noticed it wasn't included, so I had to go back to the front desk to get it adjusted. 4) The $50 was refunded however the credit card surcharge associated with that $50 was not refunded. Another detail that staff did not pick up. 5) I overheard others also complaining about slow breakfast, and staff just offered excuses, they didn't appear to actually investigate. Basically a nice building but the hotel is being run by second rate staff and management.

I would like to thank all of the staff at Hotel Kurrajong. They welcomed my Mum and I to the Hotel and always met us so warmly. We were new to Canberra and staying at Hotel Kurrajong for one week was the best way to feel welcome into Canberra. Santosh, Isabel, and all of the morning and late afternoon staff at the reception were outstanding. They were so hospitable and warm and friendly. I’ll definitely be back and will bring all of our guests to stay at Hotel Kurrajong. I also hope to ask Hotel Kurrajong to be the venue for various business/work dinner events that we will be organising in 2024. Marvellous hotel!
