Spacious rooms, very clean and quiet. The boutique feel means less people and more personalised service. Very friendly staff and close by to local shops and cafes. Self contained with everything! I would definately recommend for parents with babies and children. A very safe environment with a secure underground car park.

The hotel is quite comfortable, and has a separate bedroom (king-size bed)/lounge & living areas. Car parking... More

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.

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

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
