Queen's University is one of the most prestigious universities in Canada (and I'm not just saying that because I went to school there). The campus is old and a lovely place to explore in your downtime. Queen's also rents out rooms in the summer, although it is further away from Portsmouth Harbour (but an easy drive or bike ride). Queen's is also situated right in between Portsmouth and Kingston's downtown, so if you are bringing a family, they might be happier with the location as they can walk to the stores and restaurants. (See the MAP for more exact locations.)
Rates for rooms are: CDN $45.00 for a single per night, and $60.00 for a double. The washrooms are shared, parking can be a bit of a hassle, there is no air-conditioning, and there is no breakfast included.
The full address of the Queen's residence is: Victoria Hall, 75 Bader Lane, Kingston, Ontario K7L 3N8. You can book online HERE or contact Queen's HERE for further information or to book via phone.
