This is a top pick for business short stays. The hotel has all the amenities I need and is walking distance to the city. It's also easy to get to the airport from. Staff are attentive and the food and beverage service is fantastic.

This is a go to place to stay, though with many hotels in Canberra prices are so much higher when when Federal Parliament sits...I was going to say gouge but that would be unfair!...because all establishments in Canberra seem to do it. Stayed here many times, it is a great easy to get to venue, parking is reasonable at $12...

This hotel needs to take a leaf out of the book of established hotels. Looks good, public areas have had lots of money spent on them but just does not understand customer service- too much focus on themselves. Huge attitude full of self importance.We just spent 3 days here after 3 days at The Intercontinental in Sydney and the difference...

I have written a review last Dec re this hotel, it was ok-ish. I recently stayed again and found the service had improved, our room choice was probably better and they had turned the music down in the lobby. But the value for money was incredible plus i am a member which knocked 10% off the room so i would...

Here's proof that the bricks and mortar don't decide how great your rating is. This is a hotel built in the 70's that does all the little aspects very well and make you feel welcome and valued to be a guest. It really is a funky hotel. The room decor was great, loved the make your own cocktail and very...

From the reception desk staff who were efficient and polite, to the restaurant staff who were welcoming, friendly and accommodating (without being over the top), to the Housekeeping staff (one who was called unexpectedly to change the sheets when I cut my big toe and bled everywhere, the other who was on routine room cleaning the following morning (she was...

Pros: Location is great, perfect. Had recently been through a refurbishment, lobby looks excellent and inviting. Good bed, feather pillows Good breakfast Free internet Cons: I can confirm the shower (and bathroom basin) pressure is lacking here, it barley does the job. I had to double the time in the shower so I could rinse property. Based on other reviews...

Very comfortable and amazing location, but the lack of room service desserts, the ill-fitting sheets and low water pressure would've been disappointing if I'd paid full price. Breakfast was fantastic and parking was reasonable.

Clean room, lovely staff and comfy stay! Bed was comfortable and fell asleep instantly! My only criticism is that the bathroom did not have a fan, which then fogged up the humble sized bathroom. The restaurant was also lovely with a warm ambience, friendly and quick staff. We were seated for a table of seven. As our mains were slightly...

The room seemed ok to begin with, however ageing with scuff marks, paint off walls and furniture broken, housekeeping could be improved as it felt very dirty. We enjoyed drinks in the bar but the staff seemed very disinterested with customers and more in chatting with each other. We decided to have a bite to eat but were told you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
QT Canberra sits within the iconic Lakeside hotel that has been the scene of many a handshake deal and long lunch. In the great tradition of Australian politics we do business with a wink and a nod and know that after a gruelling day of question time (from the kids or the leader of the opposition) you need a place to put your feet up an a soft bed to fall into. Our 205 guest suites are kitted out with designer decor and all the business savvy mod cons we know you need to get the job done. Expect a seamless technology offering and a team geared to assist you with any left-field requests. ... more   less
