We have recently stayed at QT Canberra and we have enjoyed the weekend at the ACT as well as the hotel. The staff was very welcomed and the room and facilities were excellent. A pleasure expending time at the QT Canberra. Alfonse & Nanza

I want to love this hotel, it's in a great location, the vibe in the lobby bar is excellent, but that's where it stops. What others have highlighted as downfalls are true; service isn't QT standard I have experienced elsewhere. Rooms are in need of TLC. Like I say, I want to love it, but there is just something missing.

It’s not a bad hotel, but I would try a different place next time. Was disappointed to find the squashed bugs on the bathroom wall (we found them there and they stayed there for the duration of our trip, room service did not clean them), dead bugs near the windows (also found them there and they too shared the room with us), bathroom floor was unclean. Staff were good. Rooms a bit dated but not a show stopper.

I had very high expectations for QT Canberra and was very disappointed after my stay there this weekend. The hotel door hinge broke on the morning of our first night stay, we were told the next morning it would get fixed. We came back for our second night stay to find the door hinge still broken without any communication from hotel staff. Overpriced and not worth the money spent. Mini bar goods were out of date and the restaurant onsite at the hotel was overpriced with a poor menu. Overall cleanliness of the hotel was poor.
