Good quiet location, short walk or 2 min drive from the free card access undercover carpark (a bonus in Canberra especially in winter) to the Dickson shopping and restaurant precinct where every type of shop, takeaway and cafe/restaurants await you. Reception was quick and efficient and my ground floor room was clean and well equipped for a short or long...

A fantastic stay in a well appointed apartment, perfect for our group over the weekend. The only downside was that the carpets throughout the apartment were filthy, which is a big let-down when travelling with an infant.

We stayed in a Queen suite which had a separate bedroom and sitting area, microwave crockery etc so suited us fine. Lots of room in the suite and very quiet, even on the Saturday night when there was a family birthday party held out in the courtyard where the BBQ area is. We had no trouble getting a park even...

This is the second time I have stayed in Parklands and, again, I was not disappointed. Our queen suite was roomy and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and, despite being on the ground floor, the room was very quiet. The hotel is well situated, within walking distance of Dickson and a range of restaurants. The reception staff was friendly...

The setup of separate lounge/kitchen to bedroom was good. Well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and having a washing machine in the bathroom was a bonus! Yes the carpets are looking very stained and skirtings, entrance door and walls need repainting. So yes overall just needs a refresh.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a one bedroom apartment, there was plenty of space to move around in and a little kitchen is there too if you choose to stay in. The bedroom has a window that you can open for some fresh air which I really liked. The shops at Dickson are just down the road with...

Hotel is in quiet location with good selection of restaurants nearby. Our 1br apartment was very well equipped. However, it was tired, dated and a little unclean unfortunately. Stains on carpet and couches were a real turn off. Dust on skirtings, trims etc. Bare minimum of cleaning done here I think. Accommodation in Canberra is expensive so I suppose you...

Tired and in need of a refurb, it wouldn't take much to get this place up to scratch. Rooms are OK but a patina of age that is evident in scuffs, marks, stains and damage really needs attention. Furniture is old, chipped, marked and uncomfortable. Bed was OK and the hot water plentiful but again, the bathroom was tired and...

Check in staff are very helpful, but.... The first room I was given had no electricity so they kindly changed my room without fuss. I needed internet to make some calls but unfortunately the Internet is so poor I gave up trying to use it. This is very sad given it is advertised as free wifi. There is also no...

The hotel is nicely located off the main roads and with easy walking distance to the Dickson Shopping Centre and Restaurants. The room was very comfortable, clean and well presented.
