"Beautiful Historic Hotel near the Capitol"
A wonderful historic Hotel that was recently remodeled. Beautiful decor throughout the facility. WiFi sign-on was very problematic, but once you connected in the lobby, the signal "followed" you back to your room. Sign-on from the room was impossible. It appeared Housekeeping didn't know the art of dusting, but everything else was fine. I understand that food offerings and service was excellent, but somewhat expensive.

"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.

the hotel was great fixing up the obvious screw up by Venere because when I arrived they could not find a booking for me from Venere and I was lucky enough to be able to forward Venere's email to them to show that I did have a booking. Venere also refers to me by my surname in emails sent to me, somewhat disconcerting. the hotel was most comfortable if at times the service, like answering phones, was a little slow. attention to a request however, was extremely speedy.

"Great position with well appointed rooms."
Very enjoyable stay. The only criticism was on the number of staff/ table service in cafe area. Table clearing was slow, thus slowing that access to clean tables. Would it be an advantage to have water available for bar patrons to have access for self service? When the bar staff were busy, it seemed a waste of their time to be asking for a free glass of water. We had a flickering fluorescent tube outside our window for the two nights of our stay till it finally blew!!

Relaxing, warm and friendly service, David played for hours in the dining room, a pleasant revival of entertainment by piano. Devonshire tea on the verandah and a few cool drinks there too. Only problem was the very poor wifi but our sims worked. Hop on hop off bus was a fun and easy tour. We will be back.

"Fantastic"
I came to Canberra for an antique auction outside of Canberra. The staff couldn't have been more helpful as they gave me simple directions to the event and organised a great taxi driver who also arranged my return trip back to the hotel. The room was fresh and new with surprisingly clever interior decoration. Not just the run of the mill hotel décor. Breakfast was delightful with such a lovely view onto the courtyard.

"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.

"Very Average"
Although the room was nicely furnished and large the aircon hardly worked and the coffee machine was broken. The telephone has a special number (10) to dial for airconditioner but it takes a long time before you'll be answered. Now when you dial 9 for the front desk they know why you're ringing and that it's not urgent. The location, between the city and Manuka is good but you need a car and car parking is $15 a day. Only minimal 100k WiFi is free otherwise $10 a day.

"two nights spent in comfort and peace"
I spent two nights in comfort and peace and quiet. Privacy was exemplary. I had a nice meal (duck) at the restaurant, despite others' negative reviews. Breakfast pricing is a bit steep for a bowl of muesli, container of yoghurt and bowl of fruit, but probably justified for a hot breakfast.

"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.

The wing that we stayed in did not have a lift - and we had a very heavy suitcase. The car park can only accommodate 10-12 cars; remaining vehicles park on the street (hour restrictions) or in a dirt area accessed via the footpath. This arrangement is fine for 4WD vehicles but not for sedans. A couple of receptionists should not be in the hospitality industry. Full buffet breakfast is expensive but limited choice. Not recommended for families.

"A good hotel that could lift its service levels"
Spacious rooms, nice to be able to see the gardens. Comfortable beds, everything in the room you needed to make a stay smooth. The overall experience would have been improved had the room been vacuumed before my arrival and the bathroom cleaned properly. Service in the dining room was spoiled by the fact that one of the sides arrived after we had eaten the rest of the main and that they poured a wine we had not chosen and then claimed the one we ordered wasn't available - but with no discussion. No assistance with doors on arrival or departure when carrying multiple pieces of luggage, no attempt to be polite - hello, welcome would be nice.

First impression great. Then found it's not close to restaurants etc nor is the food available in their restaurant or room service to the liking of what I call a normal person. Totally over the top prices that I couldn't even justify a small chips no matter how hungry I was. I drove to the restaurant area suggested by reception however it was impossible to find parking but when I eventually did. I had foul McDonalds where their service was crap. When we returned to the hotel there was no parking. I drove around many times then parked miles away.
