Recent guest reviews

the young lady in reception was the most helpful and friendly , she printed off maps and gave us directions to many places, always happy and friendly. the room was great the comfort of the bed was teriffic, close to everything

All the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Very close to Kingston and Manuka shops and restaurants and a short drive to all parts of Canberra. The 5 to 6 pm happy hour at the Diplomat is always a great way to start the night. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We will definitely be back.

Welcomed by a young American man who was very helpful and obliging throughout our stay. Room was large and quiet. The spa/shower is in desperate need of an upgrade but still worked. Shower over bath would not be any good for anyone over about 6'3". Car parking on site. Breakfast was not worth the $25 per person during our stay.

Overall a great Hotel to stay in, friendly & helpful staff, clean & comfortable rooms & "Happy Hour" Only negative was even with the air con on the room became hot in the evening. Highly recommended & good value for $$$$$

Stayed here for 3 nights. Room was huge. King bed was super comfy. Massive bathroom with spa bath. Small kitchen area and lounge with 2 sofas and dining table for 4.Also had a balcony. Tea and coffee facilities, iron, hairdryer, shampoo etc. staff were helpful. Underground car parking. Pool area was small but there wasn't many people there when we went. The hotel is 4km from city centre. Would stay here again. Would highly recommend.

Nice place with helpful staff, good bar and food and a good little gym with sauna and pool. Plenty of parking. I would stay here again and recommend it as a good place to stay whilst travelling for work
