First time here and we were very impressed. In Canberra for a mother daughter weekend and the Kurrajong was a delightful surprise find. Centrally placed within a short drive to Civic, Kingston, Manuka yet whisper quiet away from the bustle. Lovely attentive service and gorgeous facilities. Will definitely return.

We love this hotel, we stayed a year ago and our fond memories were correct. It has a great atmosphere, a strong link with Australian political history but most of all exceptional service! It is walking distance to lots of national attractions, and far enough from the centre of Canberra to appreciate the serenity !

Stayed here after our wedding nearby. The hotel staff were lovely and allowed us to check in early so the groom had a place to get ready. Lovely touch of a chocolate platter and a really touching handwritten card congratulating us. The staff were pleasant and friendly. Room was clean, quiet and well appointed with a very nice bathroom and...

Stayed for the weekend.. no parking was the first let down, after stumbling into the front door in near darkness.. no lights on! No concierge either to help with bags or holding open the doors! Don't they have auto doors in our capital??? "Go and park on the street" was the comment from the night manager. It went down hill...

Booked this hotel for a surprise 80th birthday for Dad. Sonja in reception even set up a birthday surprise of a cheese platter when he got there. Very nice, well done and thank you for making his check in so very special. He got a real thrill to think the hotel could do that for him. Well done indeed Hotel...

Nice old world hotel close to Art Gallery and Portrait Gallery. It needs to have a porter to greet new guests before they try to enter the hotel, to advise about parking and to help with luggage. Also needs a porter to help with luggage to upstairs rooms. There are no lifts and stairs to negotiate outside and inside the...

They charge a $15 parking fee for a non-guaranteed spot in the hotel's crescent shaped driveway or in a relatively small parking space on the side. Too bad for the hotel's guests when demand is boosted by an event such as a wedding reception. We counted multiple cars in both areas not displaying the hotel's parking card. Solution - don't...

We only stayed one night, but will surely return here when we revisit Canberra. The hotel has had a stylish refurbishment, but retained its quirkiness, and charm as well as lots of photos of historic figures and events. Very comfortable bedroom, great shower and comfortable bed. Efficient, polite and friendly staff. A mezze snack and a cold beer on a...

Thank you very much for excellent service. We were very happy with our stay. We enjoyed visiting Canberra for sightseeing, and to celebrate my birthday. The Hotel is in a great location and is full of history.

We stayed in a ground-floor Heritage room for 2 nights (Friday & Saturday) at the beautiful Hotel Kurrajong. It has been meticulously restored and the room had added modern features such as a wall-mounted, flat-screen TV, ducted air conditioning, a very modern bathroom with extra large shower and modern decor. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were quiet....
