Frobisher Inn is the only Iqaluit hotel I've stayed in. Being in a remote area, it's not really fair to expect all the comforts of hotels that have regular access to all sorts of products. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. This was slightly off-set by the smell of someone smoking in the room next door and... More

The rooms are very cozy and absolutely nothing to complain about, especially with the view if you get a south facing window! The staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. The location is great because it's right in the centre of town. Very close to downtown, and lots to do within the building if you are stuck indoors. They have a store,... More

I recently stayed in the Frobisher Inn for almost a month (Nov-Dec). I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would not hesitate to return on any future trips to Iqaluit. The reception staff was fantastic! They took time to help out with anything I needed and offered insight to some of Iqaluit's culture and history. My "wake-up" calls were all handled... More

The hotel dining room was an ideal place for our family brunch. Plenty of space in a comfortably appointed seating area, high chairs for babies. Self-serve brunch has so much variety, it's impossible to sample everything. Plenty of fresh vegetable salads, fresh fruit (crepes with strawberry or blueberry or raspberry compote, yum), hot ham, arctic char, omelettes made on the... More

Stayed here for two nights on business. It is what you'd expect in the north - satellite internet is hardly usable, but it was very nice having everything inside the building without having to venture out to the icy cold. There are two restaurants inside. Had breakfast at the gallery and it was worth every penny. However, don't expect the... More

When I first checked into the Frobisher, it was -25 outside and blowing 30 kts. I was on my way to Hall Beach and I recall standing in the room in a t-shirt and shorts looking out at a local struggling to walk against the raging environment. If it hadn't been for the shopping bags she was carrying, it 100%... More

Checked into this place last month for one night before heading north. Nice and convenient with the cafe, store and restaurant all attached to the hotel (restaurant had great food - will be reviewed separately). Unfortunately for me , the people renting the room next to me decided to party loudly until 4 AM, at which point the RCMP took... More

The temperature in the rooms are adjusted centrally, but the staff was very accommodating and fixed it at once when it became a bit chilly. They... More
