"Highly overrated hotel with tiny rooms"
The rooms were postage size, the hotel was a maze, they didn't give you ice, it was run down and awful. Definitely not a four star hotel.

"Lovely stay but room for improvement"
We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Kurrajong and will certainly return again but we had several problems during our stay. Our TV and safe required visits from maintenance staff to get them working. We chose to not have our towels and bed sheeting changed overnight but found that no other cleaning was done. This meant that the room wasn't vacuumed and wine glasses and other items not washed. This is a quality hotel which we love but these aspects need to be improved.

Great hotel. Freshly refurbished and spacious rooms. Well preserved 1920's style in common areas. Parking space can be a problem. Neighbourhood is full of government agencies, not a lot happening outside of business hours.

"Best deal in Canberra"
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.

Sporting event with my daughter who uses a wheelchair. Your carpets are very thick for wheelchairs, but beautiful. The sound on Disney Channel did not work at all, but everything else was wonderful. The staff, the room especially the roll-in shower. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

"Comfort and Courtesy at the Canberra Kurrajong."
I loved it as the Hotel is one of the oldest in Canberra, but it has been recently renovated to a sumptuous standard. My main complaint was that there was a $15/night charge for parking, but the majority of it was outside the hotel grounds in an area which was very difficult to access unless you had a 4-wheel drive (SVU) car. One night I had to park on the street, but they did refund the parking fee for that. There was limited tourist brochures in the foyer other than maps at the desk. overall I really liked it and would stay here again.

"Great place to stay but don't bother eating there"
The Kurrajong has been completely renovated and the rooms are just great. Unfortunately the restaurant was a great disappointment - the waitstaff were abrupt, unhelpful and had attitude; the high prices are unwarranted for the quality and size of the meals. There's a lovely garden area to sit and drink, chat or read the paper but no-one bothered to take away the empty glasses for hours and hours. The front desk staff were also a disappointment - too much attitude that made me feel that I was interrupting them when I asked a question. The location is nice and quiet but you'll need to a car to get to restaurants etc. Negatives aside, the hotel renovation is just great and it's worth staying there.

"Disappointing"
Extremely disappointing. Small clostrophobic dark room. One small window looking at a brick wall with another small window of the neighbours. Parking was 500 metres and 950metres away on the road which the hotel wanted to charge $15 per night. Air conditioning was hot or cold nothing in between..I would not recommend this hotel

"Great, but a shame about the dirty glasses"
Very happy with our second stay at the Kurrajong. It is a beautiful, older style hotel with a nice ambience. The only disappointment was to find that the wine glasses in the room were disgustingly dirty and this adversely affected our impression when having a late night tipple. If the house manager ups his/her game and keeps on top of such little details, the experience will be perfect.

"Good location"
This hotel is in a great location if you want to visit Parliament House or the National Gallery. However, if you don't want to eat in the hotel, it's a taxi ride to restaurant areas. The rooms have been renovated but, being an old hotel, they are of different sizes. Mine was small and narrow and not particularly comfortable. There aren't many indoor seating public areas outside of the restaurant. But I must say the courtyard garden area is very pleasant. Breakfast wasn't included in my tariff, nor were newspapers which I would have expected because it's not a cheap hotel. I ate in the restaurant one night and found the service very slow - we were told it was because of the many room service orders. And the choice of food in the restaurant isn't huge as they tend to specialise in steaks (which aren't cheap). All in all, this hotel would suit a business traveller, but I wouldn't recommend it as a weekend destination.

"Very poor service, small room, nice restoration."
We were really disappointed with the service at the Kurrajong. Most staff seem inexperienced. Especially poor were restaurant staff, with slow service, forgetfulness, and awkwardness verging on rudeness. Breakfast was chaotic and the buffet itself was pretty disappointing. We finished eating and asked more than once, but did not receive our coffees until we were ready to leave. The restoration of this 20s-feel iconic hotel seems well done, and working fireplace in lobby is a nice touch, along with great historic photos along all the hallways. But our room (v expensive even with NRMA 'discount') was quite small (room for bed but nowhere to even sit). It was cold in room when we arrived and the heating system very complicated to figure out and slow to work. Overall, definitely not worth it. Better try New Acton.

"Clean fresh rooms - use this hotel!"
This hotel has insufficient parking and we had to park off the premises in dirt surrounds. The hotel wanted to charge $15 vehicle parking until we complained and it was waived. A lot of work goes into polishing the glass doors but the frames remain marked. The entry into the back carpark where we bought our car to load up, needs a strong power water wash. Other than that the room was immaculate and facilities great.

"Quaint refurbishment with issues on WOTIF request"
Booked on 1st of September (for 26th September) through WOTIF with request for twin for myself and my mother. Arrived to a double room. Reception was originally not helpful citing fully booked hotel and no request coming through. Was firm about the request and the fact that I made it almost 4 weeks in advance. Was asked to email the booking over (not great service if truth be told, luckily I did have my laptop with me). I can imagine many other customers would be arguing loudly at this point. 20 minutes later got a call from Duty Manager and instantly from phone manner, you felt more comfortable. He had found a room to swap with and apologised. Apart from that the renovations whilst not extravagant, has made the rooms nicer. The air-conditioning is no longer too loud to sleep with and I believe I had stayed in the same room a few years before. Nice and comfortable and overlooking the nicely redone courtyard garden. Note the initial room I was given was very small by Australian standards.

Housekeeping need to look at more detailed cleaning of rooms, particularly the bathroom, and not just a dust over to save water. No bathrobes, and only one other pillow to choose from when we both wanted a different pillow.

"Old Hotel with interesting history !!!"
Hotel Kurrajong Canberra - expected more from 4 stars hotel. Hotel is very old but nicely renovated. The problem is with the staff - unresponsive and absent-minded. I've asked for the room at the end of the corridor and got one next to the staircase. Connecting doors between rooms make you hear all the noise and snoring. Mattress was so hard that it was difficult to rest in comfort. Food in the restaurant was very good indeed and not every day previous Prime Minister of Australia will be seating at the table next to you. Overall good stay.

"Business in Canberra"
A really excellent hotel. I was there for business nearby in Barton which is why I chose it but there was not a lot around in the way of shops and restaurants - but that is catered for in the hotel well. The bed was a little hard as well but not too bad. But apart from that, a fabulous room in general - generously sized and well decorated and very clean and comfortable. The building is a tourist attraction in itself. Winding corridors and wooden staircases with portraits of former prime ministers which I enjoyed as an Australian politics enthusiast. In general a beautifully restored art deco building. Will definitely stay again next time I'm in Canberra. There are a few hotels down there that I like but this one has got me as a repeat customer now.
