“Comfort in the Arctic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

I was very impressed with the accommodations at Sauniq. I fly into pond inlet frequently, and I always look forward to staying here. Hotel is in newer, pre-fabricated and in excellent shape. Staff is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. Being a pre-fabricated building, the walls are somewhat thin, so keep that in mind, and maybe have a set of ear plugs handy. Also, footwear must be removed at the entrance (take them to your room) and so a pair of slippers can be worn when walking inside, or just socks. There is wifi but it's limited to checking email and texting if you have an app that let's you. There is a flat screen tv. The food is amazing for how far north you are. Prices are representative of being that far north, but you get what you pay for. Full course buffet dinner with desert, salad, and fruit. Hot made to order breakfast. Shuttle service to the airport and anywhere in the community. Recommended place to stay for anyone who visits!

A very nice clean facility. Beds are quite comfortable and Queen sized. Food is good and the staff do their best to assist. Try for a room with a view on the water. Avoid the old hotel next door if possible. Note, as normal in Nunavut hamlets bathrooms are shower only. Definitely a recommend.

Hotel is spotless! Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Rooms were of a good size, clean and comfortable. I was impressed with the meals offered - buffet style with a good variety of fruits and vegetables. If you can handle your baggage, you can walk to the hotel from the airport. Hotel offers a shuttle as well.

Stayed on the new side, room 12 at the end of the hallway. Good sized room. Everything worked. Curtains are pretty dark, it was bright 24 hours while I was there. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Internet worked, just a bit on the slow side. Overall enjoyed the stay

Decent hotel. Friendly manager. Meals are ok, but weren't as good as I had in the other Nunavut communities. Rooms are large, with no major issues. Hot breakfast made to order. Shuttle service available. Wifi was not working while I was there, but usually does per other guests.

Good sized rooms, spotlessly clean, free internet (but slow), flat screen TV with cable and huge helpings of basic but tasty food. Luxury it isn't - but what do you expect in the Arctic Circle? I was pleasantly surprised by the standard of accommodation offered at the Sauniq, a fairly new, prefabricated, single storey building centrally located, close to the Coop and a 5 minute walk from the airport (but everything is 5 minutes from the airport in Pond Inlet). The meals are served at set times in the canteen and overseen by the friendly and attentive chef Brendon. I found the hotel staff some of the most friendly and helpful I have met anywhere in the World - Brendon and Gary went out of their way to make my stay an absolute pleasure. Well done guys.
Pond Inlet is a friendly and welcoming community but best visited when covered in snow and ice when it is probably a little more picturesque. I thoroughly recommend the Sauniq.
