It's okay but the location and the noise at night was a pain. The only awesome convienience was being able to go for a beer down staris at the Store House which is a great bar BTW after a long day of meetings, the pub grub os great too but to stay there again probably not. No claimate control. pretty... 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

I have to say this is probably the nicest place there.Coming to Iqaluit you feel really out of place and in a different world,like the moon.But this hotel is clean,good service and has its own sports bar so you can watch your favorite sports away from home.Nice place to visit for business or outdoor sports like fishing and hunting.Not much...

A decent hotel for business travel in Iqaluit. It's clean and comfortable, and the service is good. Usually conferences, etc. are held at this hotel so it makes a lot of sense to stay here. The amenities in the hotel are great - a theatre, gym, restaurant, coffee shop, bar, ATM, and convenience store are all accessible without leaving the... More

Everything - Rooms, amenities (fridge, microwave, sink, etc), exercise room, room service, excellent food in snack bar, restaurant, and lounge. Very impressive and well maintained. Polite, knowlegeable & helpful staff. Stayed here twice, and will be back. Only one issue: The scented cleaning products that left a strong perfume odour in the rooms. My wife has allergies and had some... More

I stayed here a couple of nights in March 2014. It is an average hotel at best.... by North American standards. For Nunavut standards.... this is their Hilton. Pros: close to everything (theatres, gym, good dining options), fairly clean, decent gym, the manager provides excellent customer service (thanks for the drive to the airport). Cons: Expensive (yes I know it... More

Stayed at the Frobisher for an evening while passing through on business. Pros: 1) Friendly staff 2) Good water pressure and hot water. I noticed a Kohler shower head. 3) Room Service was quick when I ordered breakfast. 4) Noticed a sign saying that the duvet cover was freshly washed which was nice. 5) Sheets were clean. Cons: 1) Thermostat... More

Hotel rooms are old but beds are comfortable. Can be noisy at times but staff are usually very accommodating. Restaurant can be hard to get a table as they tend to treat hotel guests last due to booking functions or taking reservations.

The Frobisher Inn has everything that you need for a great stay in Iqaluit. It has 3 places to eat from (finer dining, pub and a cafe). There is also a variety store if the restaurants don't have what you're looking for. In addition to the food options, there is a cinema with new films and a great gym with... More

I cannot deny the luxury of my room and the overall character of the staff - good folk who care about the guests. I expected the throttled ISP. No big deal. But the lobby is a security hazard as it is interconnected, I believe, with the mall. Today, at the Caribrew Cafe, 3 locals approached me and questioned my South... More
