Here are some of the best family-friendly places to stay when visiting Canberra with kids:

1. East Hotel Canberra

It’s unusual to find accommodation with designated kids’ rooms outside a tropical island resort, but East Hotel‘s two-bedroom apartments have cubbies with bunk beds, Xbox One consoles, games, reading nooks and dress-up clothes. There are also free lollies in the lobby, and kids’ mini bars.

The 140-room family-owned and operated hotel, located between the vibrant shopping and restaurant hubs of Kingston and Manuka, also offers free bikes of all sizes to explore the area. Its Italian restaurant, Agostinis, has a kids’ menu including pizza or pasta, gelato and a soft drink for $20.

This new 130-room apartment hotel is located in the mixed-use precinct of Constitution Place, on the doorstep of Canberra’s Parliamentary Triangle and Lake Burley Griffin. It has a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom apartments. The latter have large walk-through robes in the master bedroom that lead into the bathtub area and onto standard bathrooms, which can be sectioned off with sliding, frosted panels. A by Adina is close to some of Canberra’s best museums for families, including the National Museum of Australia, Australian War Memorial, and Royal Australian Mint.
