Rydges Lakeside's signature restaurant in Canberra is the Locanda Italian Steakhouse, open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
We've been lobbying for an upgrade to become part of Australia's freshest hotel brand, QT. Results are in - change is coming! This designer refresh will see new drink and dine concepts with an overall image makeover. This may mean there is building noise between 8am - 5pm each day around the hotel. We will do our best to ensure this doesn’t impact your stay.
Our Canberra accommodation's location, views, style and service ensure a memorable stay for business and leisure guests.
There are so many attractions and things to do & see in Canberra and Rydges Lakeside is handy to them all. Visit the Old and New Parliament Houses, Australian War Memorial, National Gallery & Portrait Gallery, Questacon, Screensound, National Museum and annual events like Floriade while visiting the Rydges Lakeside hotel.
Rydges Lakeside is one of Canberra's finest hotels with 205 beautifully appointed rooms, all equipped with fabulous Rydges Dream Beds.
