Bombay Peggy is located in the historic town of Dawson City. It has a fascinating history and was, in 1898, the most populated city in the whole of Yukon. This was during the Gold Rush years that brought thousands of prospectors hundreds of miles through horrendous conditions in search of their fortune. Within years Dawson City was a ghost town once again with the prospectors moving on to pastures new when all the gold deposits had dried up. It lay like a ghost town for many years before finally being repopulated and has now become a thriving, if much smaller community.

Many of the historic buildings still stand and the history of the town with its dusty streets, colorful buildings and "Wild West" feel captivate all who spend time here. Added to this the opportunity to see the Northern Lights from your bedroom window and you can see how many come here and never want to leave.

A stay at Bombay Peggy's is to wrap yourself in Dawson City's past. Each of the bedrooms hints on a theme of a bygone day, from the regal tones of the Purple Room through to the daring colors of the Lipstick Room. Soak in a traditional "slipper" claw foot bath and be transported 115 years back into the swinging times of the gold rush era....

Whilst not offering many facilities as such, this inn is a part of the very essence of the town and the accommodations, whilst offering more than a playful nod to the gold rush era, are well and truly in the modern age with flat screen TVs, WiFi and nice extras such as air conditioning, bar fridges and in room tea and coffee.

A stay at Peggy's is fun and playful and perfect for absorbing into this fascinating place. Go the whole hog and enjoy the daring martinis and local brewed beers in the pub next door and get to know the locals, they always have a tale or two to tell!


There are just 9 individually decorated and themed rooms at Bombay Peggy's.

The Purple Room offers a regal air with custom built headboard, oriental rug and claw foot bath whilst The Gold Room offers a view of historic Paradise Alley and a slipper back claw foot tub. The Green Room was formerly the master suite and faces North, it is one of the more conservative rooms. The Lipstick Room is decorated seductively in ruby red tones with a thrilling bordello ambience. The Sweet offers two Queen beds and all the creature comforts of home and plenty of windows. The Attic is on the third floor and known as the "honeymoon suite" with a low lying bed, slipper back claw foot bath and cozy couch. The snugs are three cozy bedrooms on the third floor. These are best for a family all traveling together as they share one bathroom.

All the main bedrooms feature private bathrooms, many with divine claw foot baths, flat screen TV's with DVD players, bath robes, hairdryers, private telephones, air-conditioning and fans as well as in room tea and coffee and bar fridges. Wireless internet is also available.


The hotel welcomes children, however, there are no rooms that offer twin beds or extra beds and there are no particular facilities available for them. Children are not allowed into the pub area.


The Pub at Bombay Peggy's is a hub of Dawson City life and offers a large variety of local brews and is famous for its martinis. They also serve pizza on Fridays and have a number of events during the summer from live music to book launches.

A number of good local restaurants and shops are close by as well as the Dawson City Information Centre.

When to go

Summer or winter, rain or shine, there's always great stuff going on in New York, so when you're planning a trip, there's no real "best" or "worst" time to go. Weather wise fall and spring are the best times in New York. From April to June and September to November, temperatures are mild and pleasant, and the light is beautiful. Summers can be hot and humid while winter snowfalls are not uncommon.

September to December is conference season in New York, and we would advise booking early for travel during this period.
