The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with much praise going to the hotel's staff, location and rooms.

The hotel's staff were the source of many compliments by reviewers, who characterized them as accommodating, friendly, invested and knowledgeable about the area. One patron remarked, "Belinda, one of the proprietors, was a gracious and helpful host from the start of the booking process all the way until my departure. On check- out day my flight wasn't scheduled to depart until 6pm., Belinda was kind enough to let me stay in the room all day and then drove me to the airport at 5 pm at no charge!".

Numerous guests were pleased with the hotel's location. They described it as central and close to whale and polar bear watching, the Northern Lights, the airport, Churchill Health Centre and restaurants. A couple of travellers did find the hotel's restaurant location (across the street) to be inconvenient, however.

Several lodgers enjoyed their accommodations at the hotel. They found their rooms to be clean, quiet, spacious and well maintained, with fast Wi-Fi and comfortable beds.
