This place is not cheap (competitive for Yellowknife though) and the suites are very large with a fully equipped kitchen (stove/oven, fridge, dishwasher), large living room and bedroom. The front desk service was very good - several staff helped us out with questions and tips. The rooms are showing a bit of age but not yet at the point of... More

Very expensive hotel for very little satisfaction. Wood construction building so it's very very noisy. Lots of people that live here so the regulars kind of rule the place. Very spacious rooms, comfortable beds, great TV in the main room only and lots of channels to choose from. Internet signal was strong. Shower was a pain to figure out and... More

The room was rather spacious with a functional kitchen that is very convenient when you visit in the heart of winter. The two bedroom unit we stayed in has a balcony offering a fantastic view to open up and relax your mind. As tourists who booked with Aurora village, this hotel is a short walk away from their office. Staff... More

Apartment was not very clean, in fact we found clothes belonging to a previous guests still in the draws, breadcrumbs and food particles in the cutlery draw, dinner plates had residue food still on them etc. When we took the clothes down to reception and mentioned the room was not clean, we were told that it had been a very...

There are certain things that you want from a reasonable hotel. A comfy bed, a warm shower, clean room and maybe the ability to relax in front of the TV. Fraser Tower is clean and the the bed was comfy. But when we stayed in early January the TV viewers was not working and my wife nearly got scolded in... More

We were a group of 5 and we spent 5 nights here. We chose to book two rooms as each room had 1 bathroom. The rooms were large with its own living area, kitchen and bedroom. I learnt later that these were once government apartments and was the tallest building in Yellowknife. The kitchen comes fully equipped; pots, pens, cutlery,... More

Hotel choices in Yellowknife are limited and everything is expensive. We found we had to adjust our expectations. We were pleased overall with the Coast Hotel though. We are Coast members and this hotel was not as nice as many other Coast hotels in Canada but the staff here were great, the room was clean, comfortable and warm (it was... More

Helpful staff despite our late arrival. Excellent location for exploring Yellowknife on foot. 2 bedroom superior suite was very spacious and had excellent kitchen facilities with great balcony and bedroom windows for aurora viewing. Comfortable beds, quality pillows, effective heating control and great supply of toiletries!

This is a fully furnished apartment. It comes with bedding, dishes, everything and more than you might need to stay in and eat and even entertain. The separate bed room made it very comfortable if you wanted to invite a guest.
