Stayed 2 nights here. Reception was very welcoming and helpful. Rooms were nice and cosy with stylish bathrooms. It also got a bar with a restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food was great but the drinks not so much to my liking. Nice seating area out in the garden or inside area opening to garden. Will definitely stay here next time too!

During my stay at this historic gem in Canberra, the echoes of its rich past resonated throughout. From the intricate hand-carved mantel to the vintage photographs adorning the walls, the hotel seamlessly weaves together history and modernity. The Art Deco allure blends effortlessly with contemporary comforts, all complemented by impeccable service. It's a place to work, unwind in bespoke furniture, pamper yourself, and immerse in the essence of the nation's capital. Waking up to birdsong and picturesque views of the manicured garden or staying in a heritage room dating back to when Parliament House was just a paddock adds a unique charm.

This iconic heritage hotel employs friendly, helpful and professional staff who made us feel welcome and comfortable right away. The location is wonderfully quiet outside of business hours and Parliamentary sitting days. Parking our car on site was easy. The room was small but completely adequate with some heritage features, nice, very clean with new furnishings, quality linen and modern bathroom. The best features of this beautiful old hotel are the heritage features that give this building so much character, the lounge, courtyard gardens, and restaurant/bar area with many different seating areas. I liked the glass enclosed veranda for having our breakfast as it had a view of the beautiful gardens. This hotel has excellent menu options. All our meals were well presented and prepared. A perfect place for a rest and as a base to see the best Canberra has to offer.

The Kurrajong Hotel is a perfect blend of traditional style with a modern touch. The historical building has a lot of history surrounding it, mostly involving former prime minister Ben Chifley. Walking through the old corridors, you are greeted with portraits of political figures, historic information, and well-preserved architecture. The rooms stay true to the traditional style with its choice of colours, furnishings, and overall feel. The bathrooms are all modern and roomy. Only negatives when it comes to the Kurrajong is the small amount of available parking.

The Kurrajong Hotel is not only a charming place to stay but also an excellent starting point for exploring Canberra. Whether you’re interested in politics, art, history, or simply enjoying the beautiful surroundings, there’s something for everyone within walking distance. During my recent visit to Canberra, I had the pleasure of staying at the historic Kurrajong Hotel. Steeped in history and charm, this hotel offers a unique blend of old-world elegance and modern comfort, making it an ideal base for exploring the nation’s capital. The Kurrajong Hotel, located on National Circuit in Barton, is a beautifully restored heritage-listed building that originally opened its doors in 1926. The hotel boasts an impressive Art Deco design, with elegant interiors that reflect the sophistication of its early 20th-century origins. Notably, the hotel has played host to numerous politicians and dignitaries over the years, including Prime Minister Ben Chifley, who made the hotel his home during his time in office. The rooms at the Kurrajong Hotel are nothing short of excellent. They are spacious and exude an old-world charm, beautifully complemented by modern amenities. The large, modern bathrooms are a particular highlight, offering both luxury and comfort. One of the aspects I appreciated most was the straightforward lighting system—no need to spend half an hour figuring out how to turn the lights on and off. The rooms provide a cosy yet luxurious atmosphere, making for a truly comfortable stay. The dining experience at the Kurrajong Hotel is equally impressive. The food is excellent, with a menu that caters to a variety of tastes and preferences. The dining room itself is beautifully designed, offering a sophisticated yet relaxed ambiance. The service is very efficient and friendly, adding to the overall enjoyable dining experience. Highly recommend the Prime Minister's Breakfast and the Seafood Platter. Staying at the Kurrajong Hotel puts you within easy reach of many of Canberra’s top attractions. The Kurrajong Hotel is not only a charming place to stay but also an excellent starting point for exploring Canberra. Whether you’re interested in politics, art, history, or simply enjoying the beautiful surroundings, there’s something for everyone within walking distance.
