“Charming B&B”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This is an incredibly charming and romantic place. Very nicely restored historic building, library room is worth separate mentioning - absolutely beautiful.
We stayed in Gardini Room for two nights. Room was very large with lots of natural light, it had a sitting area, fireplace (not used as it was July), jacuzzi and a shower with a "rain" shower-head. It was very tastefully decorated and private.
Breakfast was very nice and the hosts were pleasant. Additional nice touch was the area were you could make a tea at any time with the variety of teas offered.

My wife and I spent two night in March and I cannot say enough about this place. It was just a few blocks from the majority of the shops and restaurants, the rooms were as clean as any i have ever stayed in, the included breakfast was incredible (best waffles I've had in years), and the staff was attentive but not overbearing, it was the perfect weekend and the Frontenac Club is the only place I will be staying in Kingston. Thank you for the wonderful time.

We decided to stay at the Frontenac Club Inn based on reviews found here. We were not disappointed with the facility, location or food. We had a wonderful room (Peterson) with a view of Lake Ontario. We met up with friends and enjoyed the short walk down to Chez Piggy's for dinner. The common rooms in this B&B are very well appointed and there was great parking available.

This is an incredibly charming B & B - it certainly feels more like a small boutique hotel. Charmingly restored, and excellent food. Excellent location, and with parking, breakfast and wifi it is definitiely value for money.

We loved everything here! Great location to start with -- everything is walking distance. Free parking. Complimentary wi-fi. There was three of us (a couple and a friend) and we loved being able to share the three-room Gordon suite. We had our own bedroom, our friend slept on a comfy sofa bed, we had a private patio, a fireplace... Great walk-in shower with jets. And breakfast was DELICIOUS! Maybe the best pancakes I have ever had... :-)

Just stayed for one night in the Gardini Suite and loved every minute of it! Wished we could have stayed for longer :( The Inn and rooms are actually much more charming in person- the photos don't do the place justice! The jacuzzi tub in our room was a nice touch. The Inn is within walking distance to all of the shops on Princess and within a block of the water- very nice area. The room was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. The Inn itself has very interesting features that reflect its past as a Gentlemen's Club and a bank before that. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. I highly recommend the Frontenac Club and can't wait to return and try out a different room!

Room Tip: Gardini was great! Loved it!

Booked this for a one night getaway to Kingston, and Frontenac Club Inn fit perfectly with the romance and relaxation theme that I was going for. Staff were friendly, the room (Miller Suite) was spacious and had tons of character. The location was within walking distance to everything you could possibly want: downtown shops and restaurants, beautiful parks, the waterfront, and the Queen's University main campus. Parking was free for the duration of the stay, and for a few hours after checkout. The included breakfast was top notch as well: freshly squeezed juice, locally sourced coffee, fresh bread, and gourmet omelettes were on the menu. I highly recommend this place, even if you're on a budget, as the prices are very reasonable.

Room Tip: Cartwright house is a bit quieter than staying in the main building.
