Fair 4.0
Cold welcome in a Canberra winter
The QT was one of the best hotels in Canberra and accordingly quite expensive. I stayed this week as my business budget could afford the reduced rate. Such a disappointment - the place has deteriorated in both service and its wonderful quirkiness. None of their lovely bars or the Capital Grill was open - room service only. Not because of social distancing, as neighbouring places were trading - the number of guests did not justify!! In room - pillows like rocks and a synthetic doona that does not breathe. Cold shower- yes no hot water in the middle of a Canberra winter! The whole place was depressing. Happily a friend arrived and took me across to the Ovolo complex where we received a warm welcome in a wine bar and a pizza to share.

Nice hotel but needs new aircon
QT has obviously been renovated. Nice decor and quirky touches. My one gripe is that the aircon system is too old and not great on hot afternoons when you have a room facing west (lake view)
Helen, au2 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great cool hotel in an excellent location
Cool bar, modern interior and great location. The hotel restaurant was great as well and excellent service. The downsides were that the ac didn’t work properly and that we had to pay for parking (given the room rate it could probably have been included).
Stefan, au1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Excellent 2 night stay.
This was not the first time we have stayed at QT Canberra and it will not be the last. Staff were welcoming and responsive (Anna at check in and Scott [maintenance] when help was required in our room - both worthy of special mention). In-house facilities excellent but location means lots of options available within a short walk. Breakfast was amazing and the concept of quality rather than quantity should be adopted by other hotels.
