About the venue

QT Canberra — home to Canberra’s most unique and largest hotel conference venues!

Whether you're on the hunt for a private space to sound out a new campaign direction, or an impressive designer space geared to ignite a spending spree in potential supporters, QT Canberra has the perfect space just for you, with eight function rooms and a capacity of up to 1000.

A wide array of conference spaces with the signature QT talents of quirk and creativity to make a strong statement in the form of a memorable function.

Located in the cultural precinct of New Acton, the former Lakeside Hotel property has been home to many a handshake deal and long lunch.

The redesigned building was embraced by new technology, distinctive art and cutting-edge design.

QT Canberra has extensive experience in delivering exceptional events with the largest hotel function venue in the Canberra region.

The interconnecting configuration of the QT Ballroom Canberra can also partition into three separate function rooms, with the banquet floor also offering five additional rooms providing exceptional facilities for smaller meetings, workshops or breakouts.

The pillar-less rooms all offer natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows and neutral tones throughout.

The QT Canberra team will work with you to create a bespoke event, paying meticulous attention to the smallest of details. From arrival drinks and canapés through to marquee hire and outdoor areas, we will work with you every step of the way to ensure your event is a success.

The property has invested in the best internet capabilities in Canberra, as WiFi becomes essential rather than an option at all events. All delegates are offered free WiFi for their duration in the hotel. All rooms include data projectors and drop screens and interactive digital screening linked from the foyer to the function floor, crossing over all rooms.

QT Canberra’s award-winning concept restaurant Capitol Bar and Grill is a Chicago-style grill with an Italian twist offering a range of fine wine, bistro classics and future favourites, whilst the hotel offers a number of exclusive retreats, secret rooms and guest suites kitted out with designer decor and mod cons.

There is also the added advantage of deluxe accommodation at QT Canberra with its 205 guests suites, which all have balcony views of the city and lakeside, quirky QT Mini bar — crowned "Best Superior Hotel" at the 2017 ACT AHA Awards, and designer decor with all the savvy mod cons delegates need to get the job done — including free WiFi, in-room movies and Nespresso machines.

Our stay at QT Hotel in Canberra was outstanding! The true test of a hotel's quality is how they handle things when they go wrong, and QT Hotel passed with flying colors. We experienced a minor issue during our stay, but the staff's prompt and efficient response turned it into a positive experience. The team was incredibly professional and courteous, ensuring that the problem was resolved quickly and to our satisfaction. Their dedication to guest satisfaction was evident, and it made us feel valued and well taken care of. Apart from the excellent service, the hotel itself is fantastic. The rooms are stylish and comfortable, the amenities are top-notch, and the overall ambiance is both chic and welcoming. QT Hotel's commitment to exceptional service, especially in handling unexpected situations, makes it a standout choice. We highly recommend it and look forward to our next stay!

$365 a night no breakfast. Right next door to major build works. There is no where close to get brunch or the like as this hotel does not open for food until 12pm. The room is adequate but not stunning which is why I feel like this is a $160-$200 Max place as it is quite ordinary. Prices on the menu are not correct, there is an additional charge.

Not quite at the standard of other QT hotels we have stayed at. The rooms/amenities are decent but a bit outdated and probably not quite worth the price. The main issue is the very thin walls which meant the rooms are not very quiet and so sleep was disrupted. Location is good, though big construction site next door but this was not an issue on the weekend.

Good location. Parking at $30 per day which feels a lot on top of the accommodation. Spacious room, lovely bathroom but water temp and pressure not great. Love the Kevin Murphy toiletries. Dyson hairdryer and also straightener on request. Room was cold, not sure if heating not working properly. Some construction going on.

As a wedding photographer, it's not always that I find a phenomenal wedding reception venue like QT Canberra. When it comes to urban-chic celebrations smack dab in the middle of Canberra, this place is definitely an option for you! My clients chose this funky hotel to have a blast with their wedding guests, and it couldn't have been better. From the romantic, bar-like ambience to their services, the staff went above and beyond to ensure everything was catered to. And because of the exceptional customer experience, everyone could enjoy and have fun from beginning to end. I also had a fantastic time capturing the energetic bunch in this trendy reception space. I can't recommend it enough!
