A Capital Stay

If you’re planning your next trip to our beautiful city to coincide with the Handmade Markets on June 6th & 7th, you’re already in our good books. We’d love to say thank you to you with an offer from the Capital Hotel Group.

With a choice of four hotels along Northbourne Avenue, capital Hotels not only provides the height of luxury, but also offers convenient access to the Exhibition Park in Canberra, the new home of the Handmade Markets.

The Pavilion, with its tropical atrium, gym & pool, is closest to the markets. This is convenient and versatile, with both hotel rooms and self-contained apartments.

Slightly closer to the city is Aria, a quiet haven for people doing business in Canberra, with its white spaces and calm atmosphere.

Or try the Clifton Suites right next to buzzing Braddon. An apartment hotel with beautiful outdoor pool, this venue has won awards for its quality.

The Avenue is Capital Hotel Group’s newest location and offers five start luxury in the heart of Canberra. Make a fabulous weekend of it with spa suites, rainfall showers, blissful bedding and a beautiful restaurant.

We have teamed up with Capital Hotels to offer you a 10% discount over the weekend of the June Handmade Markets. Simply quote HMM10 when booking directly through their website and enjoy the markets in style.Capital
