Stayed for one night to watch a footy game at GIO Stadium, a short 15 minute drive away. The one bedroom apartment would be great for a longer stay, as it was well equipped with a kitchenette and washing machine. The undercover car park was full by the time we returned from the game, but we managed to grab the... More

We come every week to Parklands as we have a stall at the Epic markets every weekend (Tilba Real Dairy). The service is always fantastic, rooms are clean, nicely set out and quiet. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Erica Dibden

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... More

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.

We were pleasantly surprised with apartment amenities, washing machine in the room, dishwasher. The staff were very friendly and helpful - nothing was a problem.
