I spent a week here for work. I didn't have any great expectations and was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It is situated up the hill a bit, so views of part of Iqaluit and toward the bay are lovely. I loved the central location with everything in easy walking distance. I found all the staff I met from maid... More

Stated for a couple of nights in March. Great service from the friendly staff who are quick to help. The food is great in the bar and the restaurant and there is a small shop for drinks, snacks etc. the wifi is a bit sketchy but it is free.

As other reviewers have mentioned, expectations of services up North must be altered to fit the area. The Frob in Iqaluit is probably the finest option in town. It's a little further from the airport or town centre than some of the other options but walking is not a problem most days, or a cab to anywhere in town is... More

Come to the Frobisher Inn with reasonable expectations. You will not find much in the way of big city living or services in Canada’s most northerly capital city, however, at the Frobisher you will find excellent personal service and reasonable rooms. According to others this is the best hotel in Iqaluit on a number of counts, and I suspect that... More

The Frobisher Inn in Iqaluit has its own movie theatre, convenience store, restaurant and pub. This hotel is definately the most ideal place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable with excellent sanitary facilities. The staff were very friendly and professional to the outmost degree.

I typically don't stay at hotels but found myself at the Frobisher Inn unexpectedly when my connecting flight from Iqaluit was postponed for a day. I have no complaints - the room was clean and comfortable.The staff were friendly and there was a good selection of reasonably priced sandwiches/fruit/salad available at their cafe. The Gallery Fine Dining was lovely and... More

Just catching up on my reviews. So this is from 2012. Staying at the Frobisher was an excellent experience! It is on a hill overlooking the amazing city of Iqaluit.

My room faced the bay - definitely ask for that...what a great way to wake up - to a view of Frobisher Bay. Inconsistent cleaning - but still clean, so can't complain. Slow internet - but I'm not surprised...considering where we are. And at least there always WAS internet. I would have liked a fridge and microwave in my room... More
