Diplomat Hotel Canberra

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and it did not disappoint. This hotel has a great atmosphere and feel - much better than a lot of modern/sterile places. That said it was very well appointed. We booked the King Spa suite and it was really nice. Very spacious and well set out, and spotlessly clean. Sure the kitchen bench had seen better days, but this did not detract from the lovely room. We had pre dinner drinks at the bar and they had a good selection of craft beers and wines. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming which added to our experience. I would stay here again!

Comfortable accommodation in good location within walking distance to public transport and cafes. Staff were friendly & helpful. Breaksfast value for money & excellent quality. Loved the reading area.

Stayed at the Diplomat for a Xmas party function so room rate supposingly was a "special" rate but I could have booked online a lot cheaper having said that the location is not central to the ACT attractions being War Memorial etc so you really need transport to get around And that is a feat in itself to conquer ACT traffic and roads.Also dependent on directional approach signage is not good for either hotel or street. The room that I shared was clean and spacious but the flyscreen on the window had seen better days and needed a good dust the curtains also needed a good clean.The shower is badly "screened" in that water still sprays onto the floor so be careful not to slip put a towel down.Basic toiletries are supplied with liquid soap,conditioner supplied although I do not like to use those as I feel bacteria brewing inside a bottle that I cannot see.The bed was amazing,such a good sleep but I personally would have liked a blanket but none in the cupboard and as I was out early in the morning and back late of an evening I forgot to ask for one so really my fault .Tea making facilities in the room with complimentary water and lollies at reception.I did not partake of any meals so I cannot comment on that.Staff where friendly.Room clean.Plenty towels.As I have always said book downtown not miles out of town .Free WIfI and parking best in best dressed .

Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay. The staff were very courteous and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and the food at the restaurant was delicious. Loved the idea of being able to browse the bookshelves and take something to read. Would stay there again.

Despite renovations taking place the accommodation was brilliant, professional,friendly staff and excellent food. Handy to transport to get in and around Canberra if you don't want the hassle in new surroundings. We look forward to returning.

It was by far and large the best hotel/motel I have stayed at. The rooms was extremely clean & very well appointed. the staff were both professional and very friendly. The evening dinner we had was very enjoyable and large generous serves.

Stayed here before and it's easy to make a return visit. The rooms are very spacious. The bathroom is large and uncluttered, the bed is a plush king and very comfortable. Located centrally to the whole of Canberra and Queanbeyan. Staff are helpful and friendly. Fabulous atrium to relax in many nooks.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean, dinner was great but breakfast average - food from bain marie was quite dry, seemed to be sitting there for awhile. Overall hotel was very good, very quiet.

diplomat Hotel is centrally located good parking facilities .Staff helpfull .Over all a good expierience. Bedding was comfortable.Papers suppied for reading a good feature. Foyer and bar area very pleasant.

Was a good experience. No complaints. One suggestion. Room service should reset alarm clocks. We were woken up at midnight by someone's previous alarm setting. It's not a complaint but just a suggestion. thanks.
