We recently had the requirement to spend a family weekend in Canberra and chose the Kingston Court Serviced Apartments in Kingston.
Price was ok (Canberra is expensive), location was excellent as we were 50m from Kingston Shops (lots of restaurants, IGA Supermarket, Post Office, Bottle Shop etc) and about 15 minutes walk from Manuka Shops (Cinema etc). There was underground parking for the unit in a secure carpark. The unit was on the first floor and all luggage had to be carried up the stairs.
The apartments had a great little mini tennis court that our teenage boys loved, with racquets and balls kept handy to play in a tin. There was also a good sized pool that we also partook of, it was clean and well maintained like the tennis courts.
The apartment was 2 bedroomed, with bathroom, laundry, kitchen and dining room. All was clean, well maintained and had instructions for tv channels etc. We hada King Sized bed in the main bedroom and two singles for the boys in the other room. Plenty of hanging space and storage, as well as good supply of plates, cups and cooking implements.
On the down side, the dishwasher had not been emptied and there was only 1 1/2 rolls of toilet paper in the unit when we arrived on the Friday night. They didn't service the apartment from check in till we left on the Sunday.
Overall it was ok to reasonable value for money, but very good location. The guy on check in was friendly and informative. I would recommend Kingston Court for a weekend family layover in Canberra.
