We opted for a Superior Room for $20 extra and it was worth it - much more space. Friendly staff, but shame there isn't a restaurant onsite. But its central for the sights, and not far from Kingston where there are lots of eateries.

Had a comfortable stay at this hotel. Quiet room & very comfortable bed. There's a Nespresso machine in Foyer to use anytime which is nice. Staff very friendly and accomodating. Only complaint was housekeeping not leaving clean flannel or enough soap. We had to ask at desk.

The Hotel is a beautiful building in a great area, nice restaurants in walking distance and the Parlement House just up the road. Very friendly staff , daily room service, we stayed in a standard room with full en-suite, very comfortable bed, all in all we had a perfect long weekend at the Brassey Hotel in Canberra.

The hotel is very charming inside and outside. The room was adequate but two negatives. One: the hot water takes quite a while to heat up. Very wasteful of the water gushing down the drain. Two: It would be nice to be able to open windows to enjoy natural ventilation just once in a hotel without being plagued by insects....

The Brassey is located in Barton which is on the airport side of the City. You can walk to Lake Burley Griffin and a great foreshore development with pubs, cafes, and restaurants. Opposite the Brassey is also a great cafe called the Maple and Clove that prepare amazing brekfasts. Checkin was seemless,,the staff very attentive. Our room was clean, airy...

Stayed four nights in this old style hotel that is currently going through refurbishment. Room was large but poorly lit. King size bed comfortable. Daily room servicing was haphazard with poor attention to detail. Separate alcove area with small desk and wardrobe, but not suitable for doing any business/office work. Bathroom lacked sufficient lighting. Hallways are narrow, and dark. The...

The Brassey hotel is beautifully appointed in old world style set in a country garden setting. Rooms are spacious and staff most attentive and helpful. The downside is no lift so it could be a little trying if you are in a room on the top floor (which is 3 floors up) with heavy luggage. There is also no restaurant...

We often stay at Brassey Hotel when we travel to Canberra. Each time we have stayed there have been changes - mostly good. This stay was a little disappointing. The rooms are always lovely and the beds are just so comfy - but the showers lacked hot water and water pressure. Our room did overlook a construction site but that...

Dear Wombatstew Thank you for your loyalty to the Brassey Hotel and for acknowledging our Luxe by Doma mattresses, which have been so popular they are available for sale! Apologies that this occasion didn't meet your previous expectations however, the construction site views will be changing in the coming months as we complete the exterior gardens. I've had maintenance review...

If you like the old style decor with old fashioned service well then this is the place for you. I stayed here with a friend for 2 nights back in January. The rooms were very spacious and the amenities were good.
