Big rooms but damn slow internet
I really liked my room wish daily cleaning was more thorough and the Internet was faster it was like living in the North. Not convienent to anything had to take taxi to everywhere. Nice amenities like lots of soap and shampoo. The outside needs a update as the hotel on the outside looks old. The interior is alright but needs refreshing also.
Stayed here for three nights with friends. Our group had six different rooms – one or two bedroom suites.
Basic decor, kitchen minimally stocked with dishes, etc.
Sofa bed in at least one of the rooms was extremely soft and lumpy.
Basic, acceptable continental breakfast suffered due to inattentive and often absent dining room staff.
Hotel is within easy walking distance to Museum of Northern Heritage, grocery store, drug store, and various restaurants.
Best of all we saw the most spectacular auroras right from our balconies!!
This is my 3rd trip to yellowknife, all 3 times I was staying at coast fraser, each time I brought new visitors and they had good comments staying at this hotel. We had good view from our balcony, and all 3 nights we were able to see some aurora right at our back yard..
Staff were friendly and good attitude.. I strongly recommend this hotel.
Good Place to Stay
We stayed at the end of August for five days. Good central location with walking distance to downtown attractions. Rooms are large with kitchenette. The rooms are aging a bit and some renovations would improve the condition. The rooms could be cleaner. Overall, prices are at the higher end of Yellowknife. Probably one of the better “upper” end locations Yellowknife. We found best prices on their own website with AMA/CMA rates.
The free breakfast is simple, but adequate. Save money for breakfast in morning. Bread, bagels, muffins, pastries, cereals, milk, coffee, tea, juice, yogurt, fruits (apple, orange). Wifi was free and had decent speed. Free parking.
We were able to see the aurora on the patio in the evening. Overall, a fun trip to Yellowknife.
Clean, Comfortable, Safe and Quiet
Great place to stay, highly recommend. AC/Heat work great. Great views of the city or lakes. Highly recommend. The staff are super friendly, and they want to do what they can to make your stay enjoyable.
