The room was out dated and cold. The small air con unit hardly blew out any heat. Overpriced for what you are getting. Staff not particularly friendly or helpful. Noisy as the walls are paper thin. Don't stay here. I found another hotel closer to the city for the same price and higher quality. Disappointing - will not come back!

Stayed here for a week for work. The room was very clean,comfortable and well appointed and the kitchenette area had everything I needed to prepare a microwave meal. A short walk to the Dickson shopping centre, so plenty of eating options and a large supermarket close by. Being Canberra, it does get very quiet on the streets after dark. Also... More

No restaurant for dinner and nearest restaurant is 1.3 km away. Older motel and tired even though the bath rooms have been updated. I would stay here if I have a family with a car and the price is lowered.

Parklands was a clean, well-appointed motel with very generous sized rooms. The service was friendly, and it was a very decent place to stay for the price. I would definitely consider staying here next time I'm in Canberra. The location is okay, but just be aware you will have to get a 10/15 minute cab ride into the city centre... More

We loved the facilities, breakfast was delicious. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable of Canberra. Motel was close to restaurants and club had a well relaxed stay. Could not find a fault with the service

Stayed at this motel for the 100 centenary of Anzac, the rooms were exceptionally clean, well appointed and very comfortable. Best shower I have had in a motel for a long time, amazing water pressure which is uncommon these days. Friendly staff at check in who were very keen to help with a timetable for the bus the next day.... More

Was in great position for us as we needed to be in Dickson. Very good facilities other than the wifi was not working. This is essential for us when we travel. No internet - we can't stay. We must stay in contact with our business. So this was a downer... Other than that facilities were good.

Comfortable room, the bed was very good - in fact we had a great sleep. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I thought the courtyard was charming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would happily recommend Parklands Hotel and Apartments (Dickson) to my friends here in Melbounre.

Great location / secure underground car park- easy to find & very close to many excellent restaurants as recommended by receptionist. Indoor heated pool a bonus in cold Canberra! Very close to good walking/cycling tracks & only mins drive from Aust War Memorial - Parliament House etc & other iconic buildings. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed for the Anzac Day 100 year celebrations and found parklands to be very good. It was close to shops resturants and the events we were attending. Excellent staff who were extremely helpful. The rooms were comfy and well equipped for our needs
