“Great Colonial Styled Hotel”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I enjoyed this hotel as it has that old-world feel about it. It's kind of grand in a strange sort of way where the main reception and bar/lounge merge into each other and there are lots of older woman having tea there. There are also lots of business people scurrying around as they do a lot of functions etc so the dining wasn't the experience I expected - it was noisy and busy.
The room was a little dissapointing in that it was really dark but it was big and comfortable.
I love the luggage porters outfits - it's worth going for that.

Will never stay here again ! After repeatedly asking at front desk for our account to fixedup properly after being overcharged, we had to wait hours while they rectified their mistake ! Well, we thought it was fixed! Until a week later after we arrived home to find they had charged our card again for the room ! After much stuffing around and complaints by us the problem was fixed up! All this less than a week after we had buried our son, the last thing we needed was this crap !!! Never again !!

This is my 9th return visit to the Hyatt. I use it as a wonderful R & R break. I have to say that I just love it. The beds are absolutely blissful, so comfortable, the bathrooms divine. Our whole room and bathroom in Paris would have fitted into the Hyatt bathroom. I love the thick towels, the length of the bath so one can lie back and relax. The staff are really nice, and the quality of the housekeeping is superb, take it from one who has been doing the family housework for over fifty years. I've recommended so many friends to the Hyatt and they've loved it. My only quibble - sliced bread at breakfast, and the toaster, auughhh!!!!! There is so much superb bread baked these days, that I would expect fresh crusty baguettes, sour dough, pane de casa etc. And there are no apple pies for afternoon tea, tsk tsk, otherwise as far as I am concerned, perfectamundo., margaret-anne Sydney p.s. if they accepted small dogs (as does the hotel in Paris) that would be wonderful as well.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the brilliant heritage rooms - they are all so special, quiet, spacious, just blis...

We stayed at the hyatt canberra for 4 nights. The room we were given was number 23 in the heritage section of the motel. This room was really nice - there was a hallway into the bedroom where you could store your luggage - the bedroom was a good size, along with a desk, tv with easy working remote, and comfortable chair - and opened out onto a large balcony, with 2 comfortable chairs - an ideal place to read the paper!! Another hallway then left the bedroom and at the end of the hallway where there was a bathroom - the bathroom was large and spacious - in fact we have stayed in motel rooms the size of this bathroom!!

On the whole we enjoyed our experience at the Hyatt - the room was quiet, spacious, the hot water was hot and we felt that we would return again at a future date.

Incidentally we found the bell boys did an excellent job in delivering our luggage to and back from the room.

I've read other reviews saying that the rooms were tired. I would have to disagree, ours was lovely. Enormous, two full sides of window, generously stocked minibar and lovely bathroom. We were in room 127 and the bed and pillows were heaven.
My disappointment was with the restaurant. Felt very 'American' - false luxury. Big on buffet rather than fine dining. Would have been good for a hotel of that size to have both options available. That being said, food was very nice, fresh and service was fine. The gardens and beautiful art deco public spaces are great to wile away the hours.
Staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Room 127 was great - quiet, large and down the back
