We stayed two nights - front desk is in a busy mall! (not very charming or clean)...The hotel is really only 4 or 5 floors not the 8 that their site suggests. The other buildings in the complex are like low income housing or something like that. The mall that is where the front desk is has a not upscale... More

Check-in was a bit slow and the associate should be given a medal for being patient, knowledgeable and efficient. How the Frobisher Inn can staff the check-in desk with a single employee 30 minutes after the two daily flights from Ottawa land is beyond me. Other than that, however, the service at the hotel was very good and the staff... More

Clean rooms, nice hotel. We visited Iqaluit for a weekend get-away and booked this as it seemed nice from the photos and other reviews. Rooms were cozy and well kept. Internet was extremely slow (to be expected in the north) Restaurant is on the main floor and it had a nice view of Iqaluit. There is a bar also connected... More

Rooms are a good size and clean. Ask for a view of the bay, the other side of the hotel is not great. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Only complaint was the temperature of the room. The hotel had not switched over to summer HVAC, so they were still heating the hotel for winter. It did not go... More

I was with a group on business in Iqaluit at the beginning of April and I stayed at the Frobisher Inn. The Inn itself well-situated, with a mall downstairs that includes a convenience store, movie theatre, cafe, bar, and restaurant. The rooms were of a good size, and included coffee maker (very appreciated). However, everyone in our party commented that... More

This was my 3rd stay at the Frobisher Inn. It was certainly the best. My room thermostat worked. The other times, the heat would just keep pumping out. My room was very spacious and clean. I really love that there is now always a security guard at the front desk. This was missing during my first visit and the amount... More

In Iqaluit from Nov 2014 to the end of April 2015 . The Storefront restaurant is really a cool place to hang out. They have $2.00 Taco Tuesday and chicken wing Wednesday at $0.60 each. Food is expensive all over the north but the Storefront restaurant makes it seem more fun. Highly recommended for a good evening with friends. Pierre... More

I have stayed here a few times in the past, and have come to appreciate the property's reliability and consistent service levels. It is an Arctic hotel, and thus there are a number of peculiarities and eccentricities that first-time guests might find a little odd. Service levels are sometimes lower than one might expect, but service is usually delivered with... More
