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

I was enroute to a new job over the Thanksgiving weekend. Due to a variety of unfortunate circumstances I missed my flight. I was devastated. This amazing hotel manager Findley was super supportive and offered me my hotel room for my 2 night delay at no cost and bought me breakfast to ease my burdens. Everything about this hotel impressed... More

Stayed one night while passing through. Liked having a restaurant, bar, theater, and shop inside. You don't need to leave the hotel if it's cold. The hotel room was very nice and bed was comfy. I recommend staying here if just passing through.

We stayed here as a pit stop before doing a trans-Atlantic crossing to Greenland. Given the remoteness of Iqaliut, we came with lowered expectations, which were met. Others have commented on this as well, but the problems include no usable Wi-Fi, inability to control room temperature, and terrible but expensive food and mediocre service. The arctic char that we had... More

It is probably the oldest and most deluxe of the few hotels in town. It's huge to tone form sits high up the hill and is easily seen from downtown. If you take a taxi from the airport you will find it easily, but if you rented a car it will be more difficult. Get a good map AND directions.... More

Expectations need to be lowered when travelling to the north. Considering all of the challenges businesses face up north (heating; extremely poor internet; exorbitant cost to renovate), the hotel was quite good.Rooms were very dated but the beds were comfortable. Bring an eye mask if you are sensitive to light - the "black-out blinds" don't work at all.
