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

Located right across the road from Kingston Shopping centre. It is a great location as you can walk to all Kingston restaurants. The rooms are spacious and clean. If you have a car then lock up parking is free.

The York's in a Great location. Close to the bits of Canberra you might visit for work or a holiday there. There's lots of good eating nearby, that range from takeaways to stylish restaurants & cafés. The amenities are just sufficient, but not enough to self cater for a family. We had a downstairs room close to the front of... More

Very pleasant hotel that was comfortable, clean and spacious. Very helpful staff and close to restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A few minutes drive to the National Art Gallery, National Portrait Gallery and Old Parliament House. Plenty of storage space and well appointed kitchen. Off street secure parking. We stayed on a Saturday night in a side street room... More

We stayed three nights at The York over the Melbourne Cup weekend and was pleasantly surprised with our choice. Situated in Kingston it is a really good location. Giles & Kennedy Sts have a really good selection of restaurants and they are basically just across the road. We walked from The York to Govt House and it took around 20... More

I stayed at the York for 9 days for work. The room was spacious and well appointed. Having a kitchen in the room as well as a laundry in a European Closet was a big plus. Other reviews have praised the location across the street from numerous restaurants in the Kingston shops and I echo that. The other positive in... More
