While QT is an older hotel the refurbishment brings it up to date. Our room was comfortable and clean and had a lovely outlook over parklands to the city. QT location offers an easy walk into the city and is only a short drive to some of the best museums. We found the breakfast to be generous, fresh and great...

My only complaint was our bed that was ridiculously soft and fell away into the middle...

What a disappointment. This hotel could be so much better if the management employed staff to ensure an eye for detail CONS: Bathroom: - dust on top of cistern, tissue box and toilet roll holder - picture had some scary substance on it and had not been wiped over in a long time - the only way to get hot...

We've stayed here quite a few times over the past several years, because the location of the hotel is very convenient. However, this last time, we were somewhat disappointed. The rooms, whilst functional haven't been kept up too well and are getting a bit scruffy. Breakfast was still good, but dinner was not at all enjoyable. The dishes on the...

The location of the QT Canberra was excellent with the ambience just right! the dinner menu, which changes monthly offers a wide variety of superb meals. The breakfast buffet is fantastic! The staff are friendly and efficient and the rooms are eclectic and clear.

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...

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
