Boutique hotel style. good value. The reception staff are helpful but respect your 'space'. Kingston is good - top eating out or takeaway food options, plus bank, taxi rank. Been a regular for 10 yrs.

Free secure parking, super clean and a good nights sleep, what... More

We went to Canberra for the school holidays, to see Floriade. I didn't realise Canberra was so beautiful, our first trip, obviously! The York Canberra was in the most perfect place, great restaurants, cafe's, parks, Lake burley Griffin. We walked so much, the kids loved the scenery! The York itself, well appointed, we had the two bedroom suite, balcony! Ample... More

We loved this accomodation. Central to everything we wanted to do. Walk across the road, and you have a whole 'block' of restaurants to choose from. The staff were all helpful and lovely. The rooms super clean, with everything included if you wanted to self cater. we'll stocked kitchen. We enjoyed both eating in, but also dining out. Would definitely... More

This apartment style complex is right across the road from the Kingston shops which is very handy for meals and other items. The staff were lovely and very helpful. It's a very livable apartment. The set up of the rooms is quite good for business, longer stayers and pleasure. There are king beds, lounge area and fully equipped kitchen as... More

Great location opposite Kingston Shops and Restaurants. Well appointed and very clean room. The most comfortable bed I've slept in for a long time and the crisp white sheets were cosy. Secure off street parking. I'll be back!

We had two adjoining rooms that were perfect for our family of four - we were there for a soccer tournament. The hotel is across the road from MANY really good cafes and restaurants. We ate out three meals a day and didn't have a bad meal (except avoid the burgers across the road at Mrs Jones- everything else is... More

Stayed for one Monday night. The location is exceptional. Across the road from shops, restaurants, supermarket, bottle shops. The rooms are modest in size, the beds and pillows are comfortable, shower has strong pressure and lots of hot water. Beware if you are given the top floor and you have heavy bags as there is no lift. Does include undercover... More
