Great Value hotel

Great value hotel. We stayed on a Sunday night. No meals available in the dining room but they had room service. The hotel is 2 mins drive to Kingston shops and a large number of eateries. Room was average size and a very comfortable bed. We would stay there again. Plenty of free parking in the unsecure carpark or in the external carparks.

Great place to stay.

Great hotel with friendly staff. It was cosy, arty, classy and quiet place to stay. However, the swimming pool was not clean and appear it has not been cleaned for some time. Sauna also was not operational. Otherwise highly recommended.

She's a little dated

Nothing wrong with the place, it's just looking a little tired and dated. Free WiFi and free parking are included

Handy Location IF you have Car

Friendly staff and efficient check in. The hotel room was a good size and very clean. The staff was welcoming and helpful. As for Canberra generally, having your own private transport is a necessity to be able to make the most of any visit. In this context the location is fine. Would be less user friendly if one had to rely on public transport.

It's ok

Only spent a night and the bed was comfortable enough. I wouldn't want to spend more than a night there unless you are after a budget hotel.

Road trip stopover

As an overnight pit stop on the way to the snow, the diplomat isn't bad. It's conveniently located on the outskirts of Canberra, meaning you don't have to spend time driving through the suburbs. I can also recommend it to groups in need of twin share accommodation. Don't expect much in the way of furnishings however. It's all very dated and could use a much needed update. The wood is overwheming and the interior layout of the hotel leaves much to be desired. We also skipped the buffet breakfast which only starts at 7am for a shy $20 a head. The television quality was surprising and the beds moderately comfortable, but for the same price, I'd look to stay elsewhere.

Very Happy with Hotel

Travelled for sporting group as parents. Needed something within budget and easy location to sport. One particular female bar/resturant staff member was excellent. She was very friendly and helpful. Only complaint, I went to desk and asked for a milk for 2nd night, was told it would be delivered - havent seen it yet. Everthing else - awesome!

I very much felt at home, but...

Generally, the hotel was quiet, with its neighborhood calm, and I very much felt at home. However, all my luggage was delivered after almost all my meetings in Canberra were over due to its mishandling by the airline company in Sydney Airport. Thus my serious problem had nothing to do with the fault of this comfortable hotel, but I was surprised to realize that I could not use toothbrush and toothpaste there at hotel and that the general store was not within walking distance to get them.

Museums are not within walking distance, especially in wintertime. But they are easily accessible by less than $20 taxi ride.
