Stayed here many times and its so clean and comfortable. Its such a wonderful place home away from home. I recommend this place all the time. Prices are reasonable and the owners provide excellent customer service. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when I travel for work.

We stayed twice in June/July, 2106. Janor Guest House is exceptionally clean ! The kitchen is very well stocked and very convenient to use. Lots of staples if you forgot yours. Owners make it easy! Will stay here again for sure.

Stayed at the Willows Inn for a night. Clean and comfortable. One of best places to stay in town. Price is approximately the same as Deh Cho Suites. Unfortunately never made it to the breakfest as I had a busy morning. I plan on staying at Willows Inn my next visit to Fort Simpson.

Exceptional rooms and facilities. Comfortable, clean and owners are friendly and accomodating. Micro-wave and fridge in room, free wifi, deep bathtub, housekeeping done discreetly. The kitchen is well stocked and occassionally home-baked goodies are made available.

I've had two great stays at Janor Guest House. This clean, comfortable and friendly accommodation is perfect when I'm in Fort Simpson to work for a few days. In September it was great to prepare meals with fresh vegetables from the house garden. I'll be back.

Would love to review the Janor House or its sister establishment, Willows Inn, but never saw the inside of either. We drove 305 miles to Fort Simpson, mostly dirt roads, to start a two day stay in the area. We arrived early evening to find the Janor House and the Willow Inn vacant ocked up. There were no notes or... More

We stayed several nights at both the Janor Guesthouse and the Willows and were very, very pleased with both. Janor is good for a group, with two shared living rooms, a full shared kitchen and shared bathrooms. It is very clean and comfortable. The Willows is top-notch modern rooms with private bathrooms and a smaller shared kitchen. We cannot praise... More

After getting off the Nahanni River from an 8 day trip with Nahanni River Adventures and feeling like a bed rather than a tent, I was able to get a last minute cancellation spot at the Janor Guest House. They were so accommodating and kind spirited. We were given a tour of all the amenities including a common area and... More

I had the chance to stay at the Janor and the Willows this summer - both times for multiple nights. I'd recommend both. The Janor is a lovely guest house with a common kitchen - great for making your own meals and meeting other travellers in Fort Simpson. I was in a room with a shared bathroom, and enjoyed my...

“If you're staying at the Janor, they also have rooms with en suite bathrooms, instead of shared. If you're like me, it's worth the extra $$ for these rooms.”
