Where yesterday meets today

Elegantly Stylish

In this most historic of Canberra’s hotels, the echo of the past is never far away. It’s woven into the fabric of the walls, in the grooves of the hand-carved mantel, in the black and white photos that adorn the pavilion walls, and in the passion of the team as they share tales of bygone days.
Modern conveniences blend seamlessly with Art Deco glamour, and impeccable service adds to the style. After all, this is a hotel where you come to work, to sink into custom-made furniture and reflect, to spoil yourself, and to immerse yourself in the delights of the nation’s capital

How Suite It Is

Don’t underestimate the charm of stirring to bird song, enjoying pretty views of a perfectly manicured terraced garden, or waking in a heritage room that existed when Parliament House was nothing more than a paddock.
Yesterday meets today as modern conveniences nestle between heritage touches, and balcony rooms woo at first sight.

Chifley's Bar & Grill

Here you’ll find yourself wondering what the walls would say if only they could talk. Would they tell tales of big business, of politics and intrigue, of secrets spilled, and debates won or lost over a drink or two.

Excellent Accommodation

Stayed at this motel to attend a wedding being held at the same venue. It was very clean and the staff were very helpful in every way. We had the buffet breakfast and it was delicious and plenty to choose from.

Wonderful historic hotel in Canberra

Loved every minute of my time at Hotel Kurrajong. A beautiful historic hotel in1930's art deco style, similar to its older sister down the road (The Hyatt) but much more affordable. A gem of a place, which I had not discovered on previous visits to Canberra.

Review by TripAdvisor User 10 Feb 2020

A change of pace

The Kurrajong provides a great opportunity to escape standard hotels and experience a more measured pace of life. Staff provide genuine hospitality, and even a working week here slowly rehumanises you.

Review by TripAdvisor User 10 Feb 2020

Amazing Staying Experience

Best location everything near by maximum 20 mins else just 8 to 10 mins by Car. City centre mall, Australian War memorial, Australian Parliament and Australian Mint all this is very near by which is just 10 to 15 mins.

Review by Hiral TripAdvisor User 10 Feb 2020

A step into history

Great overall experience. Front desk staff at the Kurrajong very welcoming and very helpful. The hotel has historical characteristics but has been modernised tastefully and was spotless. The beds were very excellent, especially the extra large pillows. I’d highly recommend a sun setter on the lawn. The gym was spartan but in good shape.

A Brush with political history

Located o the midst of Canberra's finest landmarks, the hotel exudes an elegance well-suited to its historical past. For a short few days in our nation's capital, the Hotel Kurrajong was a perfect location providing both comfort and convenience..
