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...

QT Canberra is located a short walk (10-15 minutes) to the National Convention Centre Canberra which is great if you have a conference/event which you are attending there during your stay in Canberra. A little further out from the main shopping strip of Canberra which is located on the opposite side of the hexagonal London Circuit. This hotel has an...

The buffet breakfast at QT Canberra is the best I've come across. It's fresh and has a huge variety for all tastes. But what impressed me was the yummy omelette made while you watched! Fresh eggs (none of that ghastly egg powder) and fresh ingredients. The rooms are spacious with funky decor, coffee pod machine and a mini bar. Great...

Stayed here for 2 nights, good central location, good quality room and facilities for the price. Has a bit of character, nice touches that make you smile like the quirky furniture and room decorations and snacks. Worth joining the free membership.

Stayed two nights for business. Very nice hotel. Rooms were very clean and well appointed. Breakfast in the restaurant although a little expensive was very good. Views from the room were quite spectacular although this would change with the way the room faced. Nice bar with a dizzying array of spirits available.

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
