Host was so welcome and accommodating even getting quorn sausages when I explained I wasn't a meat eater, she couldn't have done more for us. 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...

The B&B is run by a caring, friendly and helpful couple who dispense good advice on what to do and see in Yellowknife. You get very personalised service. Particularly good if you are not on the hurry and enjoy chats about life in this remote, unusual corner of the world. At the end of one's stay, one felt like having... More

I stayed in Embleton House during Chistmas 2012. I believe Ken and Faith are the most hospitable hosts that I have met till date. The stay was very cosy. The rooms are good and neat. The bathrooms and the common areas are clean. You have decent freedom in the B&B. I had forgotten my Battery pack cable in the B&B,... More

Embleton House is wonderful. My husband, two adult daughters and I stayed for 4 nights in 2 of the suites (the shared apartment was not available) during the Longjohn Jamboree festival. Faith and Ken are wonderful hosts, who made our family feel at home and made our Yellowknife visit a very fun experience. After Ken kindly drove us to the... More

I stayed for three nights with my 3 teenage/20's children in the shared apartment downstairs. It was perfect from beginning to end. When arranging the stay, Faith was prompt and helpful in her e mail responses. On arrival we were greeted with warmth and hospitality that could not be matched. To Peter C I would say read the information provided... More

Hello: I stayed at the Embleton House for five days in January 2013 on business. I had an absolutely delightful stay and I was sorry to leave. The Embletons made me feel quite at home during my time there. Ken and Faith are incredible hosts! Faith even made a small repair to my parka for free. I stayed in the... More

Most of the pictures are supplied by the management and gloss over the basics. There were so many rules and regulations posted around the house, it felt like being back in school. It is convenient for the centre of town and it was very clean - but I have NEVER stayed in a 'bed and breakfast' where you had to... More
