    3/5

    It was so noisy! At 2am there was music blasting from somewhere as if a nightclub was under our room. When it finally stopped, we were woken early the next morning by loud trolleys filled with glassware or plates or something that was being dragged outside and moved onto the back of trucks. When we left we realised our room was above the service entry/loading dock. Hotels can be noisy places, you expect the odd door slam or minor noise from other guests, but The Realm is meant to be one of the best hotels in Canberra, would have thought they’d work out how not to disturb guests - like sound proofing rooms on the service entry side of the building. Particularly as I understand the top few floors are hired by the private hospital and there are people recovering from surgery - I have no idea how they get any sleep! It also seemed the mini bar was also not fully stocked as there were tea and coffee facilities but no tea and coffee. I didn’t mention anything on check out because staff didn’t ask how our stay was. However, they were all very friendly and professional. Probably wouldn’t stay here again, given there are so many other options in New Acton.

    Hotel Realm is always nice but this time we were on the first floor directly about the function venue where a wedding was taking place. We may as well have been in the middle of the dance floor for the level of noise in our room.
