      I travel to Canberra few times a month at least and a;ways prefer to stay here. I have found the staff very friendly and the stay pleasant.

      It was quiet and there was an alcove over the entrance doorway. Undercover parking at no extra cost was special

      It was a bit hard to find, a bit shabby and the bathroom had absolutely no room any where near the wash basin.....our toilet bags were on the floor!

    • Older travelers

      Very dated with a musty smell. Found so e bugs in the room. Would not stay there again. Had to be moved because of an odor in the room, 2nd room was not much better.

      Looks great at night, close to woolworths, close to the city, great location when u forget ur camera ur 10 min from everything :) indoor pool was sweet!!

      The location to the city was great but the local area scared me at 1st.

      The room and facilities were so family friendly. Everything was so easy and the room was large.

      We found the Parklands Apartments to be well suited for our short stay in Canberra. The kitchenette facility was very useful, particularly as it enabled us to self cater our breakfasts. The locartion was excellent as we had driven from Melbourne and the Apartment Hotel is very close to the end of the Barton Highway on entering Canberra. It is generally easier to drive to the main venues in Canberra so it didn't matter that we were not in the main centre of the city. The Simpson shopping centre, which includes a supermarket and restaurants, is also very close and a handy 10 minute walk. The area is extremely quiet. The only noises we heard were from the birds in the early morning.

      The pillows were too thick for our liking. The spare pillow was the same. To be fair, we didn't ask if thinner pillows were available.

      The location

      I was disappointed that I did not get a private balcony where I could relax after a long days drive and have a glass of wine and a cigarette. I had to go out in the courtyard where I was screamed at by some woman about smoking the courtyard- it was only when one of her own children pointed out that smoking was allowed did she stop yelling - not a very nice experience.

      The room was big and the staff was nice.

      Location, location and location. You have to take two buses to get to the Parliament House, taking into account that the nearest bus stop is 10 minute walking distance from the hotel.

      The apartment complex had a lovely courtyard in the middle to sit, read and chat.

      The room was not as large as I imagined it would be from the website photos but it did the job as the base point for our trip.

      The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. My travel plans changed frequently at short notice and the staff were very flexible and adapted to suit my needs. The staff readily provided suggestions, travel tips and helpful information about hotel facilities and the surrounding area.
