Just three blocks from downtown Princess street sits the old Bank of Montreal building, which was turned into a gentlemen s club in 1922 and in 1997 became a hotel. Room 15 is on the first floor and has a large "soaker" tub, fireplace, sitting area with two very comfortable leather chairs and a queen bed. We stayed for two... More

The breakfast was to die for. Stuffed french toast was out of this world. The room was large with a gas fireplace and sitting room and the bathroom had plenty of hot water to fill the large soaker tub.

What an amazing place to stay in! Just loved the old building, so beautifully restored with lots of quirky bits to it!!! All the staff were so informative and incredibly helpful. Out room on the top floor (you definitely know you've climbed three flights of stairs) but it had the most amazing view and it was a most delightful room.... More

The Frontenac is one of those bittersweet places that provides an uniqueness and charm but needs some major renovations. Although small, we were put into the annex part of the building which required us to go out on the street to get between our room and the main reception area. Unfortunately, on the day of our arrival, it was pouring... More

Being a historical building fan, I love experiencing well preserved heritage buildings. Frontenac Club Inn, a mid 1800s building, is a delight to the eye. I loved it! I made the arrangements with a kind helpful gentleman, who happened to be at the Inn, when we arrived. Check in was a hello, welcome here, and off to the room at... More

I have stayed here twice and always enjoyed my stay. The Frontenac Club Inn (FCI) has beautifully preserved all the historic details without sacrificing on any modern comforts. The breakfasts are always great and the service is excellent. You can choose between three breakfast rooms each decorated with its own special touches. The FCI offers guests a cozy reading nook...

We visited Kingston for our family's annual "sibling getaway" and used the Frontenac Club Inn as our home base. We were happy to be able to check in and access our rooms on arrival mid day. Breakfast was incredibly hearty with varied innovative choices each day. The staff was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about local attractions. We will definitely return... More

My partner and I spend a night at holiday time and were welcomed into a warm, inviting B&B by Beare and Susan. Upon noticing one of us has some mobility issues, Beare quickly made a change for us to be in a room with fewer stairs. Wonderful room, bed, bathroom, gas fireplace, and a game room! The building itself is... More

This Inn is a joined group of buildings that have a very interesting history. If you're a fan of older properties this one will intrigue you with its history and character. Room quality was very good, bed and linens outstanding, breakfast was excellent. The owners take pride in the property and it shows. The only negative we could find was... More

Spent a weekend to visit our nephew studying at Queens. Location of inn was perfect as the campus and downtown are easily reached on foot. Didn't use the car until departure. Stayed in the Bell room on second floor. Loved the ambiance of the room. Super high ceiling, shuttered windows, comfortable leather chairs easily moved to enjoy the gas fireplace... More
