We had a very nice room at the inn. The only negative was that we had to walk up 3 stories to our room. No elevator. So next time I would ask for a room on the lower levels. However this was all part of the charm of the Hotel. The location is great as we were within walking distance...

This bed and breakfast place is located in a co-joined group of buildings which were a bank, a private men's club, and an apartment building in prior incarnations. It has been restored without being ruined in the process. Yes the floors sag, yes it is a bit cut up, yes the TV would not pick up a signal on two...

Kingston is one of our favourites places to visit. Our last visit included an overnight at the Frontenac Club Inn. This is a lovely B and B. Full of history and character. The gentleman at check-in was very knowledgable about the history of the building and provided us with a great tour to start our stay. The rooms are spacious...

Stayed in the Chilsholm suite with glimpses of coastline. Large bathroom and comfortable bed. Wonderful common areas with tea/coffee facilities and music. Discrete and helpful staff. Breakfast included and car parking. Close walk to central/old town. Hard to beat location/comfort and lovely repurposed building.

The Frontenac Club Inn is a cross between a B&B and a country inn. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the staff are very accommodating and friendly. We stayed in the stone room on the first floor and enjoyed the king sized bed, the large stone shower and the courtyard with chairs and table just outside the room. The...

Spent four terrific nights at this superb inn in Kingston. Such charm and warmth. Famed former guests include Michael Ondaatje, Alexander Graham Bell and other Canadians of note. A great story goes along with each unique room. Beautiful historic building. Original deco stained glass windows, lots of character. Great location. Modern renovated bathrooms. Breakfasts are full course and wonderful, perfectly...

I have stayed at the Frontenac many times since our son started his studies at Queen's. I even tried to stay somewhere else but ended up moving back to the Frontenac because I missed it so much. The rooms are charming, the owner and staff friendly and accommodating, and the breakfasts are out of this world, especially when compared to...

Here we are for our second visit to the Frontenac Inn. This historical and most charming inn hasn’t lost any of its appeal from our first visit a couple of years ago. From being a bank in 1845, evolving into “our lovely place to stay” when we travel to Kingston, we actually enjoy one of the most prettiest streets in...

We stayed here in August 2015 for a last-minute getaway and it was delightful. We booked a room with a small private shaded patio off the bedroom, king-sized bed, separate living room and even a small office space. The location is fabulous and easy to walk around downtown, with lots of restaurants in the area. The breakfast was plentiful and...

We spent a night here when my son graduated. Every aspect of the experience was superb. I almost didn't want to leave to go to the graduation ceremony.
