Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

As a teenager travelling around Australia, I had once tried to find someone to help me change a flat tyre on a squat and creaky car outside Canberra’s War Memorial. The streets then had been so dark and devoid of people that Canberra’s claim to be a capital city seemed a precocious bluff. But spending the weekend at the polished Diamant Hotel, a whole 25 years later, Mr Smith and I discover that Canberra is no longer Australia’s gawky child.

A large pair of sculpted wings in the lobby welcomes us with a contemporary flourish to the Diamant, a Modernist extension to a group of heritage build

The authentic flavours are matched beautifully with an eclectic wine list that includes some lesser-known, but delicious drops from both Australian and Italian producers.

Hotel bar:

A far cry from your average lacklustre hotel lobby, the Diamant Lounge Bar & Library works a sexy yet smart look with turquoise- and cobalt-backed dark wood book shelves and round mirror-topped tables etched with floral designs. Grab a banquette and browse the eclectic literature decorating the rear wall while you relax with a glass of wine and some smooth jazz. Drinks are available from 4.30pm–1am but guests can use the space, and its free WiFi hotspot, all day long. There's even a fireplace for cosying up in winter.
