This would of had to been the grottiest place I have stayed in for years. I am not sure where the 4 stars came from. Our apartment was cold and damp, the kitchen floor had all the dirt swept under the fridge ( open the fridge door and there is a line of dirt). There was rising dampness in the... More

I have stayed here previously and it doesn't disappoint. Very close to the restaurant strip in Dickson but parking is very tight in the evenings. The hotel itself has everything you wantt. It is clean and tidy - a bit dated but the price is right. I have to go to Canberra 3 days (2 nights) a week for 6... More

We stayed here on a freezing 3 days in July, we had hoped to be able to walk to the Dickson restaurants but it was just a bit too far in the cold weather (might be OK in summer ) the room was warm, great bed and safe parking although it was very crowded in the carpark ,(don't stay out... More

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!
