We recently had a conference at this hotel and my wife and son (nearly 4years old) joined me. During the day they discovered Canberra and I was attending the conference. With checking in the staff was nice but didn't offer my wife any help getting bags out of the car while she is 6 months (visible) pregnant and managing a...

Stay 2 nights at QT. We were giving a room on level 5 overlooking a building which is view from room. The room is clean with mini bar and complimentary capsule coffee & T2 Tea. Strangely there is a cocktail mixing set on a side table guess is for the mini bar. The designer decor of the room is cool...

Had two nights at QT - great rooms with nice views, comfy bed, and the staff were amazingly friendly - nothing was too much trouble. The hire bikes are fabulous. Had a few drinks and snack at the bar - delicious! We will be back!

Great hotel where we've stayed multiple times before, always good value. We requested a room with a city view, and were not disappointed - beautiful views across the city circle. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant where we were attended to courteously and copiously, and the food and drinks were fantastic. We also got a late checkout offered, which...

This hotel boasts a great location and is very quirky. Offering 2 bars, both with a different atmosphere but enjoyable in both. Room are spacious and very comfortable. You will enjoy your stay at the QT when you visit Canberra!

We loved staying at the QT in Canberra. Yes the room was small, but they really make the most of the space and the decor was stylish. It really feels like an adults hotel. We enjoyed the complimentary movies and Nespresso. And the bed and pillows were so comfortable I wanted to take them home with me. The only downside...

Liked this Hotel, as it was clean and modern. Rooms nice with a good LG flat screen TV and Pod coffee machine. Comfy bed and nice Robes. Everything you might like in a Hotel. My problem with this place is all the extras, like $12 parking, purchase from your room some Art works, what about buying the robe? Unless you...

the room was very spacious and the restaurant, bars etc looked very good. However, like other comments made you would expect a reasonable gym and a bath in the rooms for the price paid. Good location and most of the staff were welcoming. Very abrupt staff member when we came down the morning of the check out to ask if...

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
