"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 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

"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"

"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

good stay - room for improvement with staff training. A great location, good value, Historic Canberra. The area of Manuka offer great restraurants. This hotel has all the qualities of a potential 4.5 star hotel.

Friendly, helpful staff and excellent rooms and facilities after renovations. Would have enjoyed more usual breakfast fare such as cereals, yogurts and breads other than sourdough. Also would like more extensive dining menu with some vegetarian options - steak is great, but not if you don't eat meat.

"Great new hotel in Canberra"
01/16/15 melissacY5755JL Arncliffe, Australia
I stated at the Kurragong hotel for 2 nights this week on business. The decor is really nice, reminiscent of the great gatsby era. The room was very comfortable, all the required amenities and well stocked mini bar. Got a good quiet nights sleep both nights. The breakfast menu was pretty amazing, my only suggestion to the hotel would be to add a gluten free and vegan option. Room service menu was great too, the snapper and prawn pie was nice. The hotel is in a good central location right near Parliament House. Parking on site is ok but not undercover and $15 a day. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, great service. Overall a great new hotel option in Canberra, will definitely stay again

Excellent hotel. Modern, clean, fresh, quiet, well fitted out. Food was extremly good. Staff were very friendly and always engaged with a Good Morning/Afternoon with a smile. Terrific pricing for a Holiday stay in Jan 2015
"On the way up."

My wife and I stayed here early January and found that the hotel had a warm friendly atmosphere (the desk/foyer area could be more brightly lit) with well equipped rooms. Unfortunately there is quite a lot of corridor noise due to the wooden floors and the beds are very firm. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful and the restaurant serves freshly cooked food. Car parking is minimal and if your room faces the car park expect noise at all hours. Given the good staff attitude, I expect that some of the above will be addressed.
