The room was great, the ski lockers were great, the staff were friendly and accommodating. I will definitely go back for a third visit. I give the food in Chimney Corner restaurant was a solid B but I am a vegetarian.

On the recommendation of a friend who has stayed many times, I spent 4 nights @ Sunshine Mountain Lodge last week. I didn't realize until I took the gondola up to the Lodge that not only is SML the only accommodation @ Sunshine Village, the next closest accommodation is in Banff, an 18 km drive away. So if your time...

We enjoyed our trip. Check-in/luggage services were 1st class, the room was fantastic, the skiing is great. The table servers were also friendly, but the speed and quality of the food is potentially enough that we won't return. I realize they are perched on top of a mountain, but I have traveled to other ski destinations and haven't had the...

We were a group of 16 ppl staying for theee amazing days of skiing. Rooms are clean, comfy and spacious enough, although hey were very warm as is the entire hotel. Slept w window wide open. Food in both restaurants is great and Jamie and his staff took care of us all very well.

Love the convenience and atmosphere of the lodge. Great food, understandably a little expensive, but good quality. Amazingly helpful staff. Had great powder during our stay as well and no lift lines. Highly recommended.

We love skiing at SSV. Great mountain and perfect snow. Its also a nice treat to stay overnight at the Mountain Lodge, and enjoy the mountains at night after everyone has gone home. I would recommend this great ski experience.

We spent a night at the Sunshine Mountain Lodge, arriving late on a Friday it was a fun experience to ride the gondola up in the dark, quiet evening. The service on arrival and throughout our stay was great, Sunshine has really streamlined the procedure of getting your luggage to and from the resort and we found everyone to be...

Incredible experience! Far exceeded my expectations on all levels- from the friendliness and efficiency of the check in to the baggage handling at checkout, and everything in between- the room, the ski instructors, the hotel amenities, dining... Will be back next year!
