Good location

Location near train/bus station. Easy walking distance to Manuka/Kingston. Clean,comfortable.

Good Hotel

Location, Interior,
A good comfortable hotel in a Quiet Location. Getting a little old now, but the interior dining and lounge area is still great. Room Good as was the bed.

An average hotel

Good car park, on a main road, close to parliament house and key government offices.
Nothing out of the box. Food in the breakfast buffet was generally cold. The only hot things were my cup of tea and toast - and I made them myself. But the steak in the restaurant at night was pretty good, unfortunately it was "surrounded" by some kind of pumpkin mash.
Gabriele H. Business travelers Thailand, April 2, 2014
less than I expected

check out
THe name on the credit card is not the name of the person who stayed. When I said my partner would be staying the night the receptionist (male) asked for his name. My partner is a female. I stayed at this hotel nearly 20 years ago and it was lovely. It looks sad and and it hneeds a refurbish.
Shachar A. Business travelers Israel, December 24, 2013
It was good

Very quiet, friendly staff, good price
It is the second time I am staying at The Diplomat Hotel. I like it because it is always very quiet, the staff is very friendly, the restaurant of the hotel is very good - and I like to have my dinner over there. The rooms are quiet big, very clean and nice. There are many good cafes and places to have something to eat not far from the hotel in the centre of Manuka. Nothing is special about this hotel - but its nice and cheap. More than you need for few nights when you visit for work.
Ricky Y. Couples Australia, December 23, 2013
Only hotel that offers free internet and parking

Quiet, free internet and parking
Had a pleasant stay. The greens outside was nicely decorated and it made you feel very comfortable when you walked into the hotel. A very short drive to several Canberra touristy areas - including the Parliament House. Must have own car for transportation needs
