"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

What was Great? History stylish vibe, stay was comfortable, great credit to Alex, Hotel Kurrajong Porter great customer service focus, particularly after losing my daughters pillow, tracking it down and returning to us.

"Enjoyed the new Kurrajong greatly"
It was refreshing to stay somewhere fabulous in Canberra for a change. They've nailed the renovation of a fantastic old building that has so much history for the politically interested. The service was great too. Can't wait to stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"'when in Canberra, only one place to stay'"
A warm, friendly balance between old style and modern comfort. Staff are outrageously friendly and helpful. Top marks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exceed my expectations!"
Staff are extremely customer focussed. One of the best hotel experiences I've had. Staff provide better service than 5 staff hotels in the area!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Value for money"
Friendly staff, a bit of a walk to the room and unfinished renovations but in all a good experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent hotel and helpful staff but didnt like having $50 pending on my cardGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What do you want to see?"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fantastic, awesome.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is very old world with original polished wooden floors and fixtures. Anyone working at or visiting Parliament house must stay here at lease once. This is where our former Prime Ministers stayed. If only the walls could talk! Even the Queen has stayed here. Great historical photos line the walls.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
good place for quiet , easy stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel had great service but rooms were bit outdated and old lookingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Deserves Better Management"
This hotel has great potential. However. . Front desk service poor. Maintenance needs a shake up. TV channels not right.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We had a free upgrade!"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is in a very good location. Close to Civic and Manuka. Rooms are basic but fine for the price. No TV in the room. Not sure how the shared bathrooms would cope if it was busy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price it's a great hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap and nasty"
Similar to backpackers but your in your own room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very convenient location close to many places of interest. Service was good,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean room & comfy bed but thin walls"
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!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a 4 star, probably 2 star"
Very basic, advertised as 4 star, I would say maybe 2 star bed and breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"위치가 참 좋아요"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

It's original character untouched... Creaky sash windows and floorboards on the stairs, and at the same time very comfortable....My room was very large and quiet. Not quite as central as other hotels but only a few minutes by car from the cbd and a couple of minutes from restaurants.
"A pleasant surprise"

This hotel has character and ambience. Well located, friendly staff, good food, close to National Library and Art gallery, walking distance to Manuka. On the bus route which puts much of Canberra in reach.
"Fantastic hotel - very similar to the Canberra Hyatt"
03/24/15 Jonathan S Lindfield
I couldn't get over how similar this hotel is to the Hyatt - but at a fraction of the cost, much more intimate and in a much more convenient location. The quality of the rooms is outstanding, the building itself is beautifully designed and fitted, and the food is exceptional. Highly recommended.
"A very nice central hotel"
03/24/15 Geoff M Werrington
We stayed at the Kurrajong Hotel for the first time last weekend. It still has its old world charm despite its tasteful modernisation. Would recommend staying there if you're in Canberra. Food was good, but a bit pricey. Wine also a little dear. Overall, would stay there again.
"A Great Find"
03/23/15 Geoff K Sydney, Australia
I chose this hotel pretty much at random, but we were so impressed with the combination of modern facilities and timeless character so successfully achieved with the recent refurbishment. The room was excellent with great beds and luxurious bathroom. We ate in booth dinner & breakfast and loved the quality of the meals and the ambience of sitting on the terrace

well located, friendly staff, good food, close to government buildings, walking distance to Marnica. The refurbishment is beautiful, tasteful always someone to help with direction, and concern for the ultimate experience for your stay

The hotel is situated well for my travel to Canberra to work at several Federal Govt agencies in Barton, Woden and Symonston, and central to airport, The hotel has an old world charm with a modern and classy edge.
"Newly opened, needs some work yet..."
This is a beautifully renovated hotel and is very comfortable with lovely interiors. But attention to detail is very evident in almost all aspects of the service - things missing from mini bar, not full complement of towels (hand towels and bathmat missing, which only came on the third day of my stay), seats in dining room not cleaned down, one staff member unwelcoming in dining room, (was curt and rushed and did not offer to plate up a baguette for lunch), no fresh fruit made available. Room service variable - risotto portion truly tiny for $32 while steak sandwich was generous. Most staff were very helpful with one veering towards being sycophantic. Just needs to find its feet. No services like supermarket or cinema close by(2km away) and surrounded by government buildings.
"Refurbishment Pays Off"
03/21/15 John H Newport
Kurrajong now ranks with the best hotels in Canberra. Excellent room upgrades and the public areas have a timeless appeal. Staff attentive and pleasant. A good la carte breakfast was served with a view over the garden.
03/21/15 Gary S Moruya
Top quality hotel, service, food and staff. Handy location. Pity there is a fee for parking and Fox movies. Restaurant is great, excellent staff service and food at dinner and breakfast. Would be good to have opening windows but other rooms might...at a cost. Good to see the Kurrajong alive and well.
