The restaurant was brilliant buffalo wings where the best food ever tasted and that service was top class. Convenience to the Kingston railway station was terrific. We will certainly stay at the diplomat next time we stay in Canberra and we will recommend it to others.

Stayed as family of 5. Spacious room. Facilities all there. Surprisingly Quiet rooms. Lobby/foyer great for kids: dinosaur display, books, games, lovely ambiance. Buffet breakfast expensive, but adequate.

Everyone was very welcoming. Made you feel at home. Had everything you are looking for. Certainly stay again whenever I get to Canberra. Parking excellent. WiFi spot on. Bar was great but overall the staff were the best as a team I have experienced in Canberra.

Household attention to detail let the hotel down. We have staid in this hotel many times over the past years and have always enjoyed our stay. This time an oversight by housekeeping and a real lack of interest by the reception staff resulted in an unpleasant experience.

What a delight to be made welcome not just at check-in but throughout the whole stay! Great staff, comfortable, well appointed rooms and an air of old world charm made for a memorable stay. The current refurbishments will only further elevate this special property.

Great service, helpful staff, clean and tidy rooms. Relaxing atrium to read a book and enjoy a drink, or play a few board games with the kids. Happy hour was a bonus, we did the evening meal in the hotel as been travelling which was great and very reasonably priced. Negatives was an outside pool and that was shut for...
