The description really does sum it up. Simply furnished room with wifi and TV. Importantly though, the staff do a great job of making you welcome and helping out with anything else you might need, including taking a van-load of us out into the wilderness in the middle of the night to see if we could get a good view of the Aurora.

Room Tip: Don't spend too long in Churchill. There really aren't that many activities to occupy a long stay.

It's not a palace. The hotel has that smell of ski boots you find in many snow lodges. The rooms are average, and the bathrooms kind of suck. But this is the middle of nowhere, so they don't really have the option of having shiny new everythings. The staff worked hard to ensure I had the best chances to see the sights. Just remember it's an isolated frontier town and it is ok.

The Bear Country Inn is a nice place to stay while in Churchill looking for bears. Our room was warm and comfortable and John our host was friendly. It's a busy place but then it's "bear season". The one morning I went for some cereal for breakfast and I guess I was a little late as there was know more milk to be had. Good muffins! Would stay there again!

We stayed here two nights and while it's not a 5 star hotel, we weren't expecting that. The room was perfectly fine, the beds comfortable and all the staff friendly and willing to help. Our polar bear tour pickup was before the buffet breakfast opened however, they had someone open early to ensure we were able to get something to eat for breakfast. Again, it was perfectly fine and we appreciated the flexibility on their part. The free Wi-Fi was great. Our room was chilly so they provided a heater for us. Then the fuses blew a couple of times. But the owner fixed it with no fuss and certainly to our satisfaction. The location was very convenient, could walk anywhere in the town. Would certainly stay here again. They also provided shuttle to and from the airport.

As our flight out of Churchill was cancelled due to thick fog and we had already booked out of our existing hotel in Churchill, I stopped here for one night, before catching my re-scheduled flight the next day. It's right at the far end of Churchill's main street, Kelsey Blvd. Despite being in need of a refurb (think 1970's decor) the beds were surprisingly comfortable, and most welcome at the time I can tell you. The room itself was a twin and was rather cramped, furniture wise. Adequate sized bathroom with sink, shower cubicle and toilet (set on a raised step). There is a little breakfast room just off the reception area - although the breakfast selection itself is left in the reception area for your to choose from. A little TLC could work wonders - but I guess it all takes time and money. The owner didn't seem too keen on conversation, but perhaps caught him on an off day.

Room Tip: I had room No. 31 (facing the main street)
