10/10 Exceptional

The house was very cozy and comfortable. Definitely a home away from home. We loved the king size bed and the en-suite bathroom was perfect. The towels and toiletries were very nice quality. Frederick was an amazing host. He was very knowledgeable about the area and always available to help make your stay perfect. He really went above and beyond.

Nice and cozy house
We stayed three nights in Lou & Francis Guesthouse. The house is nicely decorated, warm and clean, and our room is very cozy. There is even a private cloak room which is very convenient for us in this cold weather when we have a lot of jackets and stuffs. Francis was very helpful and friendly, he also cooked good breakfast, too. We will definitely recommend this to all tourists who come to Yellowknife.

Wonderful stay and experience! 10/10!
It was an amazing experience to stay with Lou & Francis Guesthouse. I was a little bit worried as I normally stay in the hotel when I travel, however I was attracted by the photos from L&F posted at Hotels.com so I decided to give a try. We rent the car at airport and the drive to the guesthouse was easy enough (10 mins). The house is very cozy, clean and almost brand new. Service is very personal and thoughtful. I will definitely stay here again if I come back to Yellowknife and I highly recommend this guesthouse to everyone with any trip purpose!

Nice room off the beaten path
My son and I enjoyed a two night stay. Room and en suite bath were clean and comfortable. Staff were accommodating. Transportation (small fee) was available and more cost effective than taxi.
