Great place to drink, meet friends, dance and party. But it is not a place to rent a room from. The Gold Range is a Yellowknife Institution. A place you must visit.

Gold Range is one of the oldest buidings in Yellowknife. I think it should somewhat have a memorial place in history of that city. Many will remember the days of Margaret and Ronnie Assanualt. Margaret was the former Margaret Trasher. They were the good street people during my years in the city. May the Gold Range be preserved,perhaps as some... More

The Gold Range Hotel is a dump. It should be condemned. It probably will be condemned. However, the Gold Range Hotel is a long standing Northern institution and the epicenter of Yellowknife's raucous social life. In keeping with the high prices of the north beer are about five Canadian Dollars, coolers 7$.The bar is dim and stinks of beer. There... More
