Stayed in a Queen room on first floor last night. Let me tell you about the good things; if you are visiting a student at Queens U- it just down the street, it's really clean, if you are attending a conference it has wonderful facilities for meetings, the complimentary snacks they set out for guests are great; a lovely area...

Internet was strong and reliable. Overall the room, and the bed were comfortable. The buffet breakfast was good as well, lots of choices and good service all... More

We made a reservation for one night to cut the trip from Burlington to Montreal in half. Knowing we will only sleep there 6 hours and hopefully have something to eat before heading East, we didn't want to spend a fortune or stay in a shabby motel. We made a great decision: hotel staff was friendly, room was clean and... More

The location is great, quieter, but an easy drive to Kingston's main attractions. The building itself is charming and the rooms are simply decorated and clean. The best part is the breakfast that comes with your stay, which is by far the best free hotel breakfast I have ever had. I would come again for sure!

The Donald Gordon Conference Centre is part of Queen's University, and usually hosts its Business School conferences there. It recently opened the facility to the public when no conferences are booked. We stayed one night at the centre. Firstly, if you're a tourist, it's location is only convenient if you have a car (there is an ample-sized parking lot). Otherwise,... More

We booked this Hotel on a last minute trip to Kingston. Even though it was not in the Kingston centre, the location was in a residential neighborhood. The grounds were beautiful and the room was very clean and spotless. We felt we were at a 5 star Hotel. The service was excellent and the breakfast was superb!! They set up... More

Booked this facility for a last minute trip to Kingston on Aug. 8th & 9th. Everywhere else was sold out. This place was welcoming and so much cheaper with more services than some of the other larger hotels. Free parking and an awesome breakfast included. The room was extremely clean with abundant toiletries, towels, and pillows. Very quiet area. Every... More

A little outside Kingston centre but no problem if you have a car (parking space is available at no extra cost). As the name indicates this is specializing in conferences which makes the place seem a little deserted when no conferences are taking place. We stayed here for one night in a standard room. The rooms are just that -... More

i was absoutely impressed with this gem. Everyone was extremely professional, welcoming and helpful. The rooms were spotless ad comfortable. The attention to detail was what made this property above average -- from the free candy bar, beverages (a great variety) to the delicious breakfast. The courtyard was a lovely, quiet oasis -- I felt that I was at a... More
