“Walk to departure lounge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Excellent service, helpful staff, great position at airport, car park behind or half a block away, comfy room, great bed, sooo quiet, excellent shower and quality hygiene products. Very pleased I stayed here as hate that early morning rush to airport/parking/ etc etc. Just sleep well and walk over to departure lounge. Highly recommended !!!!

Room Tip: ask for room on East side, very quiet

Living a few hours from the airport, we have stayed here before when it was a Hilton and we had early flights. It has always been convenient with nice clean rooms, but it seems better now it is a Parkroyal.

We booked a family room ( city view) for the three of us. Big, clean great. Only used 3 of the 4 beds (king and two singles). We were going on holidays so decided to kick start and have a few drinks in the bar the night before. Ended up ordering some exceptionally tasty very good quality snacks too.

Not sure in what situation you would need a 6 or 7 course degustation menu in an airport hotel.... But we had a look at the menu and based on what we had, and what was described it looked amazing.

The room only rate was $395... bit expensive for what it was I suppose.....but not given the locations and the convenience factor at 6am the next morning was priceless!

Big clean bathroom with separate shower too.... Hate those shower over bath affairs.

Highly recommended.

For a hotel at an International Airport, this hotel should offer the business traveler basic amenities. For one, the restaurant closes early, leaving room service which will only be delivered to your room. The service in the restaurant is slow and the wait staff needed to be reminded of my orders, more than once.

The rooms are plain and basic with mattresses that are only average in comfort. Internet service is poor, not to mention you pay a premium for it. Telephone connection had white noise. The desk in the room was small and did not sit evenly on the floor.

The Airport noise level is not bad being close to the airport. The noise from the adjoining rooms and hallway is very poor as I could hear everything that was being said on both sides. Also, the rooms have proper shades for blocking out sunlight - although the shade in my room needed repair or replacing.

The staff is professional and friendly.

Stayed here overnight before an early morning flight. Check-in was swift and easy, the room was well equipped with all mod-cons that can be expected from a hotel and the bed was comfortable. Was good having a bath separate to the shower, and the free wi-fi was very quick! Would stay here again.

This is so easy for an airport hotel, no shuttle busses or waiting around in the cold or heat. A short covered walk from the airport terminal, up in the lift to the lobby and a warm welcome.

Our very clean room had a spacious bathroom with quality toiletries. The wardrobe area was good and the room comfortable with a big desk and an easy chair with foot rest. No airport noise penetrated the room and we slept well. We had some problems controlling the air conditioning it was either blowing hot air, too warm, and if adjusted immediately too cold. Like many Australian hotels no wi-fi in our room but there was a free online computer available in the bar with a printer. We enjoyed a swim and hot tub on an upper floor. The gym looked well equipped too. Great breakfast (part of our package) with eggs cooked to your own personal tastes.
We will definitely stay here again.

I've stayed with my family twice recently (on the way out and way back into Australia) and so this review is an amalgam of our experiences over both stays. We had a family room; it was spotlessly clean and very spacious with 2 king-size beds and a good sized bathroom (with a short-ish bath separate from the large shower). We had a rate that included a buffet breakfast which we found to be good quality, and good value if you're a big eater; also they'll cook eggs fresh (and exactly as you'd like them) if you'd prefer. The food in the restaurant is pretty good, but on our first night the service was incredibly slow. Good selections from the room service menu and our second night it was delivered quickly (and still hot). All staff we dealt with were friendly, polite and professional.

Qantas changed our overseas flight booking, so to enable we weren't 'fogged in' leaving Canberra we decided to fly to Melbourne the night before. We booked in to the Parkroyal, which is about a 2 minute walk across a walkway from the terminal. It was modern and clean and exceptionally quiet considering it is so close to the air traffic. We did not hear any planes. The beds were really comfortable, and the restaurant was good. The Parkroyal is not cheap, but for the convenience and savings on taxis etc, it is to be recommended.
