Stayed here in Canberra on a deal that included a one-night stay, entry to the Ancient Egypt Exhibition, and a buffet breakfast. I must say, this experience exceeded all my expectations! The staff were exceptional, going above and beyond for any request I had, and even those I didn't. They upgraded my room at check-in just because, which was a lovely surprise. My partner and I arrived in Canberra early, and they graciously allowed us to check in early at no extra cost – a rare and much-appreciated gesture compared to other hotels that charge for this benefit. Their overall attitude towards guests was genuinely delightful. The only minor concern was the underground parking, which is quite small, especially when returning to the hotel around 8 PM on a Saturday night. We were very fortunate to find what seemed to be the last available spot. Despite paying for parking, I was unsure of what the alternative would be if the underground parking was full, as there didn't seem to be any backup options. That small issue aside, everything else was brilliant. The staff were top-notch, the rooms were spacious and clean, and the buffet breakfast had everything you could ask for, including barista-made coffee. What else can I say? If you stay here, you WON'T be disappointed!

The room was clean and the bedding was very comfortable, we all slept surprisingly well. The carpets and bathrooms are showing their age but the fantastic service from all hotel staff make up for the other small things that could be improved. Special thanks to the Manager Owen for taking the time to show us the room before we booked and for being so courteous and polite. The breakfast was good, selection from the buffet was good and again, all staff at breakfast were friendly and helpful. Yes, we can see the hotel room fixtures are showing their age, but the pricing was competitive. Overall, an enjoyable stay at the Crowne Plaza Canberra.

As an IHG member, I was very disappointed in this hotel. The rooms have an awkward layout and are missing key amenities such as a bottle opener to open the beers stocked in the minibar. The bathroom was in need of renovation at least 10 years ago, with a shower over the bath and a general, grotty appearance. Only for necessity did I use the non slip mat provided. The shower curtain had also seen better days. For two consecutive days, my room was not serviced, in spite of hanging the card on the door and turning on the service light. The restaurant left much to be desired. Buffet lunch was seriously lacking in options and quantity available for diners. Breakfast was OK, although I consider the bacon and sausages inedible. The bar opens late and closes very early, forcing you to go to the casino should you wish to enjoy a quiet drink. Service from staff varied, with a lovely lady greeting me in the dining room for breakfast, whilst many others appeared disinterested and there were also some language barrier issues. I will not be returning; at least until the rooms receive well overdue renovations.

I booked two rooms for a Saturday night on a booking site as the hotel wasn't able to match the price. We booked for parking and breakfast for both rooms. Parking was easy and we were given access to one of our rooms early. The check in staff were very helpful and friendly and we're happy to help with a late check-out for one of our rooms. Easy walk to the centre of Canberra for shopping and coffee and adjoined to the casino which is convenient. The gym was well appointed and open 24 hours. The breakfast was well stocked and again all the staff super helpful and friendly. Overall good comfy room and nicely appointed hotel (including free tea/coffee and bananas in the foyer on the Sunday morning).
