We stayed at Arden Ave B & B for four nights in early March 2013.
We found the accommodation excellent, and enjoyed our stay a great deal. (It helped that we scored 3 out of 3 on Aurora viewing nights).
Ian, the owner, was a wonderful host. We were pleasantly surprised when he picked us up at the airport, as we had told him we would take a taxi. (It’s not normally part of the service unless you arrange it in advance). He also took us for an extended tour of Yellowknife on his way to pick up his son from a friend’s house.
When the booking for one of our Aurora tour nights was messed up, he quickly got on the phone to his old friend Joe of North Star Adventures (also a nice guy who goes the extra yards), and was able to get us on that night’s viewing, even though it was an extremely busy time for tour operators.
Arden Ave B & B is in the suburbs, and not a downtown location. But that has the advantage of it being a very quiet area. There is a bus at the end of the street, and a taxi ride downtown is only about $15. Both North Star and Becks have a pickup service from Arden Ave.
We are more than happy to recommend this accommodation.
