We came in for a school reunion which happened to be on a very busy weekend. Staff and the owners were very accommodating and friendly. The inn is perfectly located near town and Queens university. Lovely historical buildings. We stayed in the cook suite which was huge. Large bathroom and shower. Small patio and view of the lake. Breakfast was...

The Frontenac Club Inn is a lovely, quaint inn with lots of charm and history. A very pleasant change from traditional "hotel" accommodations and the location in downtown Kingston is perfect. While they boast a "full service" breakfast, we did not find that to be the case. When we arrived in the dining area just before 8:00 a.m., we sipped...

While the Delta and Four Points are both a block away, this seemed like a neat alternative in the neighbourhood. The thing to keep in mind is that it's very much a B&B rather than full service hotel, but that's part of its charm. The building itself is quite interesting, and you can't help but think of what it must've...

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...
