    Location

    I couldn't access the free Wifi. I had to keep calling reception to re-set it. Very annoying considering how much the room cost.

    The location was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

    On the last day of our stay the cleaning staff must of got distracted as we were only left with 1 towel and 1 face washer. As we did not get back to the room until after reception had closed this was very disappointing and made having showers the next morning very interesting.

    A very pleasant erience overall. Well located, helpful staff, room was very well furnished. Great value for money.

    The York is in a centralised position in Kingston and a short walk to Manuka. We could buy food at local supermarketsand prepare it in the ample kitchinette. The bed was extremely comfortable. There was also a washing machine and dryer, most convenient for longer stays. There was covered ,secure parking under the building which was included in the price.

    I could have been cleaner. Although serviced daily the dust on the bedside tables remained. I finished up cleaning it myself. The bathroom sink plug hole was full of hairs which I also removed. One wall in the bedroom was heavily scuffed and in need of a paint. On our last day we could hear the next room's shower runnning for a very long time and when we showered we had very luke warm water. Not the best on a cold morning! With just a little more care with the housekeeping the stay would have been so much better. It should also be noted that the York has no lift and it was 4 flights of stairs to our first floor room from the car park with our luggage. Also the shower was over the bath so it is not suitable for people with certain mobility disabilities.

    Location, room size and furnishing

    Check in was chaotic. First room allocated had not been cleaned "only three housekeeping staff on duty today". Noise from street - late night/early morning revellers. Car was scraped in the underground car park.

    Location very convenient. One bedroom apartment floor plan good for the circumstances where my wife and I were both working.

    Heater did not operate properly, toilet did not operate properly...continuous slow internal leak.

    Was very happy with the room. It was warm and comfortable. It had everything we needed for a few days. Great having washing facilities and a dryer as well. We also loved being in that location as the shops and restaurants nearby were really nice.

    Great location and great level of furnishings and inclusions. The room was clean with all equipment and facilities working. A very comfortable apartment style hotel. I will definitely look at using again.

    Location - proximity to lake foreshore (Gallery etc) and shops. Secure parking. Bed comfort. Balcony.

    Location was great. Carpark underneath was excellent. Lovely garden. Bed was comfortable.

    Our notebook did not like the wifi set up and only downloaded emails twice during our three day stay. We have good security on our notebook and have used it very successfully throughout Asia. Also, when we checked out the receptionist had the wrong rates for our accommodation and overcharged us $30 but we were able to sort it out quickly and without any problems.

    Safe car parking, large room. Lot of restaurants within short walking distance.

    A little expensive. Car park stairs needed cleaning.

  • Older travelers

    This was our 2nd stay and ideally situated for both catching up with friends and shopping. Loved the friendly service and the cleanliness is 2nd to none. Would definitely recommend to friends and stay again if we are in the area.

    The room we have just stayed in although very beautiful and big with lots of lights still seemed to be very dim. We chose this hotel as we like a little bit of self catering mostly breakfast but found that this time we only had a microwave to use and no hob tops to cook on. Couldnt change as we did not know until we arrived at 10.30 that evening and we were too tired to change to another room if we had the opportunity. Maybe all rooms should have at least one cooking ring!!

    Great location, friendly staff, nice amenities.

    The front rooms are really noisy and we were woken in the early hours as there were young people yelling in the street, not your fault of course but maybe double glazing or something might help? It was the hardest bed and pillows that I have every slept on, otherwise everything else was really great.

    They readily accommodated my request for a balcony room on a high floor. The room had a large balcony with plenty of openable windows. The room was clean, modern, light and open providing something to look at. The king size bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was large, well lit and airy. Free undercover parking is a bonus. Best of all, the staff were very friendly and pleasant and were eager to be of assistance and to make you feel a welcome, valued guest.

    The room could do with a few more outlets in which to plug devices which need recharging.
