Canberra’s Diplomat Hotel has received a $2 upgrade to rooms and public areas.

An extensive 18-month renovation and refurbishment at The Diplomat Hotel in Canberra valued at over $2 million has led to a complete relaunch of the ACT Roundhouse Hotels property.

Working with designers Blainey North and fit-out firm Acacia Projects, works included a refurbishment of all 67 rooms, with lighting, furniture and curtains all changed. Bathrooms were also reimagined as part of a significant refresh. Downstairs, the lobby reception, main restaurant and bar have all received a makeover, as did the hotel’s conference room.

“We were very proud to have the professional expertise of Blainey North who provided the design and inspiration for the refurbishment and assisted us in implementing her vision at the highest possible standard,” Roundhouse Hotels Managing Director Hugh Cooke said.

“The support of our designer Blainey North and Acacia Projects ensured the hotel was completed to a quality and standard we are very proud of. Once again we have a beautiful iconic boutique hotel that fits with the quality service we will continue to provide.”
