My wife and I usually get up to Canberra yearly, and like to stay around Kingston. Stayed at the relatively new East Hotel this time around, which was our first time stay at this hotel.
Lovely modern hotel conveniently located within vary easy walking distance of both Kingston and Manuka shops and restaurants.
Stayed in a fourth floor 1 bedroom apartment. Very nicely appointed, and laid out with contemporary furniture, lovely artwork, and generous spaces.
Kitchen and bathroom both very very well thought through and detailed. We cooked in the kitchen and everything we needed was there.
Didn't eat in the restaurant as it was closed for renovations which was a bit of a shame. The public areas are generous and the staff both front of house and back of house were great. Room WiFi very good.
It looks new, very clean, and obviously everyone takes a lot of pride in what they do and the space that they represent. We had a really lovely time there, and in particular a quiet relaxed new years eve. We wouldn't hesitate to go back, and look forward o our next opportunity.
