Canberra Rex Hotel Reviews

6.8
Very goodBased on300 reviews

Guest reviews

  • Single
    7.4

    Great position in the city with a very good buffet in the morning, all with a 11am check out. Will be even better when all the refurbishments are done.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Good value for money - no frills, but reflected in the price

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Price was right. Location was good. Staff helpful.

    Room was not made up very well on second and third days. Very disappointing.

  • Single
    7.4

    The breakfast was delightful and a good variety of choices. The Manager was very attentive, helpful and most courteous. The bed was comfortable but a bit tired looking and with an awful view. No warning was given about the possibility of frost on the car windshield in the morning and not having covered parking made it a chore to remove and get on my way.

  • Single
    7.4

    The staff provided excellent service and are very understanding and accomadating.

  • Single
    6.6

    Friendly staff and location

    Mis communication between Rex & Booked.net as when I arrived there they have cancelled my booking instead of my collegue for whom they charged no show charges. Internet connection was not good

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Although in need of a paint, our room was very comfortable, clean and had what is required for business or pleasure, ie comfy bed, tea, coffee and bathroom requisites. We had breakfast included in our room charge which was very good. Staff were courteous, efficient and friendly.

    There was only one thing that I found strange (not a bad point), that was an apparent policy that means if you pay cash for your room you must pay a deposit on your key. I felt that I was being penalized for paying something more secure and more beneficial for a company than credit card. Weird!! Once the building project is completed, hopefully there will be increased parking facilities, also better room security, ie instead of keys, a swipe card for unlocking and power supply to rooms etc. this would mean that rooms would be more Eco-friendly.

    price

    king bed was two singles limited four channels of free tv heater wasnt to hot

  • Single
    8.2

    Staff member at reception (on Friday 6th at around 10:00pm) was fantastic ,please tell this young lady,"she was wonderful with checking me in".

    No Foxtel or even real digital tv facility. No weekend room service. Bathroom was a little shabby (loose toilet roll holder and loose clothes hook ) No free wireless. It could not be hard weaving that into the per room price)

  • Single
    5.0

    Staff friendly and helpful but trying to compensate for a tired old hotel with poor outdated facilities. The restaurant was good - food good and staff quick and efficient. Dinner much better than breakfast - cold scrambled eggs two mornings in a row.

    No hot water unless bath tap is run for up to 10 mins. Does not explain this in rooms, says to run sink hot water tap for a few mins hahahaha Whole place needs a good scrub up. No attention to detail - ie not even any bottled water in the mini bar - nothing except those hideous long life milk sachets Car park a mess - I don't care if they are renovating they need to tidy things up in the interim - clean up us as you are working so guests do not have to park in a mess. Walls are so thin I was woken by snoring in next room.

  • Single
    8.2

    the location was just what i wanted... The cost was very good and the dining was excellent.

    certain areas of the room could be upgraded ... in particular the television sets...... Due to the size of the televisions some parts of the in house movies ( which were excellent ) were not visible on the small televisions

  • Older travelers
    8.0

    The price

    Shabby and run-down but clean and reasonably comfortable.

  • Single
    4.6

    Staff were generally helpful & friendly. Food good, varied & healthy. Papers free & a good variety.

    Carpet was torn & a safety hazard. Bathroom antiquated &1 power point not working.Noise from inside hotel machinery. Horrendous noise from builders next door all day.

  • Group of friends
    3.8

    Not much at all over priced I paid with a credit card then they took more money from the card it was dirty the beds were hard and the shower is shocking not worth 1 star

    The whole thing

  • Single
    7.0

    Location and parking

    Whole place a bit tired, and room a bit spartan, but you get what you pay for. Limited TV channels; pay for Wireless (I didn't)
