I hunted and hunted to try and find a better place than Aria to try something different on this ACT trip and was certain I had located it. It had some ups and a few downs - overall average, not hideous, but not fantastic. In no way is it modern, it is old wood furniture with nothing on the walls... More

The best part of my staff were The staff. When I arrived after getting stuck on the hume highway for over an hour because of snow I felt very welcomed. They were nice friendly and helpful. i asked for a dvd player the first night, and they brought it to my room even though he was obviously busy. The room... More

Pictures are a deadset lie in comparison to the reality. Wouldn't stay here again, wouldn't recommend and wouldn't even give it the time of day. The bed is uncomfortable and is 2 single mattresses joined together, cutlery and glasses dirty, the room also had a bad odour. I sat on the chair at the table which had a nail sticking... More

Room was not adequate for the price paid, room was filthy, queen bed was two single beds joined together, there was stains in the carpet and bedding, heater gave out a dusty smell, shower fittings were rusted ... I could go on. There are far better places in Canberra for the same price.

Parklands Apartments were really well appointed with a great layout and lots of space. The bathroom and spa were great and really clean. However, the kitchen needed more basic cooking equipment (eg a collander or a salad bowl etc). Staff were friendly and the location to the city centre was good.

I was a bit concerned about parklands from other reviews. But after booking through booking.com they quickly confirmed my email query that we would get the bedding configuration we requested. The apartments were clean, bedding was good and the swimming pool was an added bonus. My daughter loved it even though it is July! The kitchen in the 3 bed... More

Clean, well appointed and daily servicing. The indoor heated swimming pool was a huge hit with the kids. Great place to stay just outside of town to avoid the traffic noise. The self catering was a plus as it allowed the budget to stretch a little further. We will stay again!

Clean, comfortable beds, short drive to shops. There was confusion with my booking because I booked for 2 rooms and was only registered for one. It's a good thing I brought a copy of my booking to show reception. However, staff were helpful, friendly and easily sorted out the bookings. Overall, it was a good place to stay and would... More

If youre bot offended by 80s decor, the colours peach & salmon, or some wear & tear, this is the place for you. Very basic facilities, but that's what makes it cheap & cheerful. Everything was in working order, & the place was immaculately clean. Parking looks to be tricky - anything involving a horse shoe pattern can be a... More
