I stayed here for 6 weeks while visiting ANU (uni visitors' housing was ludicrously expensive). The hotel itself isn't anything spectacular, but it's totally adequate and it's a great value compared to the rest of the hotels in Canberra (see for yourself). It's right next to a bus station that several different buses go through so you can usually be in the city center within 15-20 mins or so. If you have a bike it's about a 20 min ride, probably 5 by car. The restaurant is decent -- not amazing, but pretty good. The staff are really friendly and accommodating. No concerns about safety, cleanliness, functioning facilities, or anything basic like that. Overall the hotel could use a bit of basic renovation, I suppose, but it's not like anything is falling apart. It's fairly near to Manuka and Kingston, where there are a lot more restaurants, some stores, bars, a grocery store, movie theater, etc. Though like most things in Canberra most of those things tend to close around 9 or 10. All in all it's a great place to stay if you need a hotel, don't need to be smack in the center of the city, want to save money, and aren't expecting something luxurious. I would totally stay here again.

It was obvious that the hotel had a beautiful multi-million dollar renovation. But our room was filthy. The bathroom was dirty and dusty with boot marks on the tiles. Our bed was unmade and dusty. It definitely put a dampener on our experience.

The hotel is a great alternative in Canberra. Very homely feel to it. Location is good for the city if you have transport. Only negative is the range and price of the restaurant menu. Limited choice and ridiculously high prices. With no transport, there are no other food options within walking distance. Whilst rooms are well heated, corridors are not!

Comfortable, modern hotel rooms. Carparks were hard to come by at the hotel, which should not happen. Restaurant (Chifley's) was very busy at breakfast on Anzac Day, and there was a fairly long wait for a table and then further lengthy delay in getting meal served! Location was very central to the main attractions - War Memorial and Museum, Parliament House, Royal Mint, etc. Wi-fi provision was minimal and should be provided FREE for hotel guests. Staff were pleasant and efficient for the most part, altho on one day of our stay our room was neglected to be serviced, and I know I did not leave the DO NOT DISTURB sign on my door as we were OUT all day!!

We chose this hotel because it is near the restaurant where we were to celebrate a family birthday. Next time we stay in Canberra we'll choose it for itself. In a building steeped in history, it has been tastefully restored probably beyond its former glory. Many historical features have been preserved. Our room had all the modern conveniences, yet without the rather sterile quality that often accompanies a modern hotel. The staff were welcoming and friendly, with none of the pretensions that unfortunately seem to be requisite in four star hotels. We did not eat in the restaurant so I can't comment on that aspect of the hotel.

The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and welcoming (especially Alex). The hotel has just been through a refurbishment, therefore the rooms are very clean and new. My husband loved that it had a coffee machine where as I loved that is also had a kettle. We ate dinner on both nights in the restaurant and the food was great. There is insufficient parking for the number of vehicles that wanted parking, so even though we paid the $7.50 per night for parking we only got to park in there on one night (because we got in early). It's disappointing that we were told this charged would be removed for the first night and it wasn't. I didn't get to see the bill until after I'd paid it. Couldn't be bothered going back in and fighting over $7.50 when I wanted to get to the War Memorial.

If you are going to Canberra for sight seeing, then Hotel Kurrajong is a great location. You can walk to most places including Parliament, the National Gallery and National library. Without a car, it is a bit of a hassle to get in to the CBD but there is a main bus stop just outside the hotel. The hotel is a bit old and I was not convinced that the heat worked in our room but the service was wonderful.

We started our stay with a free upgrade so that was great. Then They got messed up at the restaurant: We had something we didn't order then nobody came to take our order but told we had to pay for what we had. They did not appologised. We stayed 2 nights and I was very surprised they didn't cleaned the room or made the bed or change our towels. Also if you were to take a shower too long, the water would not drain but would flood the bathroom.

Stayed in a budget single. Price very reasonable for an ensuite in Canberra but it does mean the rooms are quite hostel like. However it was clean & the bed was comfy so it met my main requirements. Light sleepers may wish to look elsewhere - the walls are so thin I could hear my neighbour snoring loud & heartily. The hotel is in the process of being renovated so hopefully it's something that may be improved - along with keeping the hotel bar open past 9.00!!

호텔 자체는 약간 오래된 듯 보이지만 상당히 청결하고 여러가지로 준비도 잘 되어있었습니다. 객실도 깨끗하게 잘 준비되어 있었지만 좀 오래된 건물 특유의 분위기는 어쩔 수 없더군요. 전 개인적으로 제 객실과 굉장히 비슷한 방에 4년정도 살아본 터라 오히려 편안했지만요. 찾아보면 주변에 식당이 제법 있다고 나오긴 하는데 실제로 나서서 찾아보려면 그렇게 쉽지 않았다는 게 흠이었습니다. 하지만 위치 자체는 버스정류장도 매우 가깝고 좋습니다. 호텔 안에 있는 식당 음식도 괜찮은 수준이었어요.

Amazing restaurant for fine dining, rooms a little drafty and didn't heat quickly or hold the heat (stayed cold most of the time), very limited parking for quests, room was small and there was no room for luggage in the room.

"Quality accomodation"
07/02/15 flos Melbourne, Australia
We stayed in a classic room for two nights; I was worried that the room would be small and basic, having read some reviews on Trip Advisor, but no worries! The rooms are generously sized and elegantly furnished with quality fittings. The king-size beds are extremely comfortable and the hotel was so quiet that we had an excellent night's sleep. The bathrooms are well-equipped with nice shampoos, shower gel etc. Checking-in and out was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast selection is extensive and delicious. Downsides? Parking isn't necessarily convenient and costs $15 although this is standard Canberra stuff and the desk clerk would have ensured that we would have been able to get parked, which was reassuring. The hotel is also a bit of a maze and I got lost trying to find the gym, but it's part of the charm and age of this lovely hotel - the upside was that I got to enjoy the great period photos that line the hallways! I'd definitely stay here again.

Lovely decor and well appointed room. Room was small but fine for one guest. Not much on site parking needs more. Restaurant has lovely atmosphere but was bit pricey and food average. Location excellent.

Beautiful decor, fab brekkies, nice restaurant. Great to experience a Canberra landmark. A bit more attention to creature comforts, flexibility and giving the guests what they want and it would be hard to beat.

Very nice place to stay overall, quite classy, staff were attentive. I was a little disappointed with the food, it was expensive and only OK, others have given rave reviews. Some sort of ventilation or exhaust fan in the bathroom would be my only criticism.

Great decor in the refurbished rooms: stylish and generous. Our room was quiet except the original windows let in daytime outside street noises. A radio or music channel on the TV would have been welcome to dampen the construction noise out on the street. Typical, poor breakfast buffet - the usual baine marie suspects. Staff were lovely, warm and genuine, really quick room service.

Great location between Kingston, Manuka and Parliament House. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Food and wine of a high standard. And it looks like a baby Canberra Hyatt but with better rooms and a better location.
