The Brassey is as much a Canberra institution as Old Parliament House, and just about every Member of Parliament has been through its venerable doors at some time. It opened in 1927 - the year Federal Parliament relocated from Melbourne to its new Canberra capital - and functioned as a virtual government guesthouse for decades. The location on 2.5 acres of beautiful gardens in Barton is right on the edge of the parliamentary precinct and a short walk from many of the national capital's iconic tourist sites.
A very sympathetic renovation has given The Brassey's spacious Heritage guest rooms a well-earned makeover, with high-backed lounge chairs and brass light fittings. As befitting somewhere that parliamentarians would stay for months at a time, the rooms are generous in size and wonderfully peaceful at night. Downstairs, the Belmore restaurant has a row of lovely arched French windows that bring in the light and views from the grounds. It's a very evocative setting to eat breakfast before you set off to see Canberra.
If you are playing tourist, ask The Brassey's front desk staff about packages that include visits to exhibitions at The National Gallery and The National Museum.
