Kingston is located about 20 minutes walk (I don't drive) from Australia's Parliament House. It's a bit of a trek from the city centre itself over the bridge but it's a pleasent suburb with a selection of shops, cafes and pubs about five minutes walk away. Regular buses go to the city centre too.
Arrived late(ish) at night and didn't really give them that much notice but the key was easily found and there was someone available to speak to on the phone which was cool. The room itself was basic but clean and the bed was very comfortable. Although it was not en-suite (I didn't pay for en-suite) it had a wash basin which was a bonus. Blinds instead of curtains are always a winner for me and they had them.
There's a TV room and a laundry room (although I didn't use either). Showers were ok but could perhaps have a been a little (in italics) bit cleaner and more powerful. Breakfast was a little (in italics again) basic but the porridge was first class.
Have never stayed anywhere else in Canberra but would probably visit again if I had the chance.
