Embleton House is a real find away from the numerous hotels that are in Yellowknife. Faith made sure that I was well looked after for the four days that I was there. The fridge was always well stocked and the house was really close to everything in Yellowknife. I would definitely recommend if you are wanting accommodation with home spun... More

I've been meaning to write a review for some time, as I've stayed a number of times over the past 3 years. Every time I come to Embleton House I have an amazing sleep and a warm welcome. The rooms are clean, there is good water pressure, and comfy beds. There are hot tubs in each of the rooms and... More

Quiet location a few blocks from downtown. This establishment is labelled a bed and breakfast. It certainly is not. If you are used to a common dining room with fresh breakfast cooked hot by a conversational proprietor, you will be very disappointed. Here, you will get your own room and bath, with a stove and fridge, stocked with a few... More

Thank you for your review it is appreciated. We are curious as to what we could have done to make your stay more enjoyable? Had we known you preferred company at breakfast we would have suggested the B&B side of our bed and breakfast instead of the private Small Inn side in private suites or even invited you into our...

My husband and I are Yellowknife locals. We booked this B&B because the hotel we were going to book did not have any vacancies for our wedding night. One of the hotel employees recommended this B&B for our wedding night and it did not disappoint. From the moment I called to reserve the room I was very impressed with the... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Yellowknife. As Australians, we wanted to experience a Northern winter, but in Yellowknife we experienced something special - friendship and community spirit. Faith is genuinely friendly, caring and helpful, which makes all the difference to your stay. We travel for quite a few months of the year all over the world, and are not... More

Embleton is by far the best B&B I have ever stayed. There was a total of 8 in our group and we booked the suite rooms 4 5 6 7 at Apartment B. And since there were only 4 rooms, we had the apartment to ourselves which gave us lots of privacy. I called up Faith when we reached Yellowknife... More

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
