Based on a friend’s recommendation, we chose to stay at the Frontenac Club Inn on a weekend getaway to Kingston in late July 2013. It may be a little pricier than other options (remember though that the price includes breakfast and parking), but it was certainly a lovely choice that contributed to making our first visit to Kingson so enjoyable....

Mediocre at best. Cannot understand how a property with so much potential has such an uninterested bunch of people working there. Never received a welcome from the owner (who was cooking breakfast). Had a surly waitress serving us. She also checked us out and was completely uninviting as she was during breakfast. This is your job folks - to make...

We stayed in the Gardini room at the Frontenac Club Inn for two nights and were very happy with our choice. When we arrived the owners were away and it was Barry who showed us around. He displayed a friendly manner and showed us all the facilities of the inn. Our room was really lovely, spacious and well appointed with...

This inn is really beautiful. The building is very old and has been kept in the original style. The ceilings must be at least 16 feet high even in the guest rooms. The rooms are really large and the price is very affordable. The breakfast is very nice and the employees who work at the inn are very warm people....

Stayed at Frontenac Club for 2 nights recently. Quite a curt "welcome".....actually not a word of "welcome" at all, just here is your key and here is your room and "this is where the newspapers should be, but I guess someone has taken off with them again". On the morning of our second day there the young lady asked us...

This is the old Bank of Montreal building from the 1800s, and has been carefully restored to retain character. Our room was huge and had views of the lake. You make morning tea in the old bank vault! The included breakfast was nice with fresh fruit and yoghurt followed by salmon and asparagus omelette. Slightly on the pricey side, but...
