I just spent two nights there and will more than gladly do it again. Clean, quiet, AWESOME SHOWER, and close to restaurants and shops. I was actually a little sad to close my door and walk away :)) Whenever I am in Canberra for business, unless there is some crazily cheap priced place, then I think I have found my...

We have now found accoommodation in Canberra to use whenever we are there. Great value for money, clean rooms and an excellent staff. Cars are safely housed in a locked, underground car park. There is no extra charge for parking, unlike other places we have experienced in Canberra. Thanks so much for a hassle-free 5 night stay.

Just a one night stay, passing through. Reception helpful and friendly- the room clean, a little dated and small bathroom but everything comfortable, working without problems. Quiet location easy to get to different areas of Canberra. Planning to stay there next time in Canberra.

I have stayed at the parklands on several previous occasions and have found it to be fantastic, staff friendly, good location, great pool and clean large rooms. However this trip turned out differently.... Check in was good as per usual quick efficient and but took quite some time. When I got to my room to find it had not been...

We were pleasantly surprised with apartment amenities, washing machine in the room, dishwasher. The staff were very friendly and helpful - nothing was a problem. We felt secure the whole time and with undercover locked garage parking even the car felt safe. The noise level was great - even over the weekend when the hotel was packed once it was...

Stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment for 5 nights. Great location as its only a 5 minute walk to Dickson shops, cafes and restaurants and only a 10 minute drive to the city. Apartment was clean, beds comfortable and staff friendly. There is a great bbq area and seating if the weather is nice. Swimming pool area is...

To say I was disappointed in this place would be an understatement. In desperate need of a good clean and complete overhaul. The furniture is worn and dirty, the carpet was filthy and ripped in areas. The walls had been patched up and not repainted and all the walls in the entire 3 x bedroom apartment were in need of...

Even though this motel isnt your brand new 5 star motel it is well maintained an clean. Thank you for a peaceful clean welcoming stay. In saying that I did stay in a motel room not the apartments so there is a fair chance the apartments are like a 5 star an newer like other guest have stated. :)

We stayed here for one night in the one bed apartment. It's cozy and well equipped with a kitchenette. We arrived at about 8pm and left early so can't comment on the facilities but there is a gym, pool and bbq area. No room service on the weekends but breakfast available in the breakfast room. Continental only on the weekends...

DICKSON PARKLANDS. WHERE HOME MEETS HOTEL Just because you're away, doesn't mean you can't have all the comforts of home.
