Well located hotel in the Parliamentary triangle. Compact but well appointed room. No restaurant or breakfast facilities - need to walk to neighbouring hotels. Friendly and helpful staff.

We loved the unique room design and especially the window wall next to the bed and the electronic blinds. The hotel has a very calming atmosphere. We really enjoyed our stay and will almost certainly be staying again when we return to Canberra.

I loved the Honour Bar. Able to select what food and wine is like in my room. But will ask next time to be in a room away from the lifts.

The Little National is the perfect getaway hotel if you’re looking for cosy and modern. It’s my go-to place to stay whenever I’m in Canberra for a night or two.

Amazing location, beautiful room and facilities with extra touches which only enhanced our stay. Only draw back for us was the mattress which is plush and soft - something that after two nights left us a bit sore!
