The Embleton house is truly home away from home. We were a group of friends that first stayed at the suites and subsequently moved to the private bedrooms in section A of the house. The suites were amazing to say the least; more cozy and personal than any hotels. The house is conveniently located 2 min walk from Brunos pizza,... More

Faith Embelton and her husband run a great B&B as a base to see the Northern Lights, and try out dog team driving. I went in February, and despite the temperature (-50) it was a wonderful experience. The Embleton's use their re-modeled basement with 4 rooms with a fully equipped and fully stocked kitchen for breakfast, and any other meals.... More

This bed and breakfast is a comfortable and clean alternative to the revolving door atmosphere of a hotel. The people who own and manage it really make you feel like a part of their family. I have had my share of stays in hostels, shared and private suites and the quality from Embleton is exceptional. House rules are not uncommon... More

Made reservation and tried to cancel same day...but was told my credit card will be charged for full three day stay. :( Apparently, I needed 72 hours notice to cancel...no chance considering I booked and tried to cancel same day. Really disappointed.

Just saw this review this Am and "Yes", we have a 72 hour cancellation policy. Ms. Landry made the reservation and we honored it turning other potential customers away for the time she reserved. When she cancelled lucky for her that evening First Air had a cancelled flight and rented the two suites and a private bedroom. Ms. Landry had... More

This is my favourite place to stay in Yellowknife. Staying here is like staying with family. Faith and Ken cannot do enough to make you feel welcome. The rooms are comfortable and immaculate. I thoroughly recommend staying here :)

I was staying there around getting medical treatment, just diagnosed with cancer. I had stayed in the shared part before and not been impressed with all the rules, but the suites were very nice and I was told they all had individual heat control because I have been very cold in the first stay. I went there because I wanted... More

This review is exaggerated and untruthful. Embleton House has achieved one "International Customer Service Award" and three local city "Customer Service Awards". Theses multiple awards were awarded to us due to our professional and outstanding customer service over the years and hospitality that we continue to provide. If you have any questions or concerns about this ladies accusations that she... More

I found this B&B through the tourist bureau. It was immaculate and, typical for B&B's, decorated for the female client. I survived that. The hosts were pleasant and helpful when asked for help. The downstairs kitchen was well supplied. The trend seems to be for the hosts not to prepare a breakfast anymore. The host, Ken, and I had a... More

While this is advertise as a B&B , our room/suite had a full kitchen and a SPA. Also a BBQ grill outside which we used. Each day the hospitable hosts supplied our refrigerator with necessary breakfast food for us to cook at our leisure. Or anything we purchased from their local grocery store. Highly recommended over any hotel/motel in Yellowknife.... More

I would definitely recommend staying here and would definitely... More

Had a great trip to yellowknife and made that much better with some great hospitality and wonderful accommodations of the Sunrise Room! Faith was a great host and if this is your first trip to YK, I recommend a bed and breakfast over a hotel because you get some great recommendations from the host. At least that was our experience...
