our first experience of this hotel was the lift breaking down and being marooned for an hour!!!! our condo had two bedrooms but only one with ensuite, for two couples it would have been better to have two ensuites. The view was nice from the balcony over looking the slope.
It is not genuinely ski out as there is climb to the hill or a precarious ski over tree routes. As has been said elsewhere the room was devoid of comforts that help self catering, we usually find salt and pepper, herbs and oil to help, here there was nothing, even not the usually things that help between cleans, like enough dishwasher tablets, washing powder and shower gel or shampoo. There is rarely anyone in reception leaving the impression that the lodging is quite deserted.
if skiing, remember to bring a ski lock as these help ski security in the ski locker room, many residents have secured theirs so that there were not enough places for our skis. our room has ski boot dryers, and a hot tub, enough space for us all, and we were quite comfortable.

The beginning of my stay here was a bit of a disaster, going from one room to the next without either of them being housekept. After finding the first one to be better After all, the younger maintenance guy on duty fixed the place up and we were all set. Management made it right the next day and the room itself, a generous suite was well appointed and convenient. A huge deck with a stunning view over the valley made it worth enduring.

Had the potential to be an amazing stay if the housekeeping staff had decided to show up some day. Hope that side of things improves

We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite with a hot tub on the balcony. The room was spacious, had everything you needed, but run down. Unfortunately, there's no A/C so it did get quite warm. One fan was broken too. The hot tub turned my dark green swimsuit to a sage colour. The balcony was quite dirty (food spilt from a previous guest). Underground parking was nice. Overall, I don't think we'd stay again, more cons than pros.

The quality of the hotel was very poor.  The room was not well maintained and not particularly clean.  The room was dusty, the glasses/plates etc were not clean, there was a screen door lying on the balcony floor, a missing window blind, a shower door that wouldn't close leading to water ending up on the floor, a fireplace that wouldn't turn on, Christmas lights on the balcony that were hanging down broken.  The room key cards were deactivated a couple of times during our stay which wasn't ideal considering that the reception wasn't open and we needed to go to the Glacier Lodge to have them reactivated.  There was also supposed to be a 10pm quiet time rule but there was a loud party with people playing drums and singing on the Saturday night until the early hours of the morning which kept waking our kids up and nobody did anything to enforce the quiet time rule.

For the amount we paid to stay here I would have expected a similar quality to the other Bellstar hotels that we've stayed at (Solara, Grand Rockies, Royal Kelowna).  Quiet honestly we could have stayed in any number of the chain hotels in Golden for less than half the price, which also wouldn't have had a resort fee and would have been better quality and value.

I will say that the staff were very friendly and a pleasure to deal with but all of the negatives that we experienced made it difficult to enjoy our stay and ruined the end of our family vacation. We were offered 40% off a future trip specifically to the two Kicking Horse Resort Bellstar hotels but there's no way I would stay there again.

We really enjoyed our stay here! The room was a good size and had a nice little kitchenette with a microwave, bar sink and mini fridge as well as a coffee maker and a kettle. A huge plus was the heated bathroom floor. the hotel grounds are beautiful although it was not open for skiing while we were there so we did not hit the slopes. We did however visit the nearby Nordic center, the staff at both were extremely friendly and helpful and really made us feel at home. The cross country skiing was fantastic and affordable. the staff at the hotel was extremely responsive and helpful with any questions we had and we would definitely recommend staying here. The mountain views from my room were gorgeous!!

We are currently staying at the Palliser Lodge at KickingHorse Resort and I can’t even wait to leave to write a review. We are staying in a two bedroom suite with a hot tub in room 307. I don’t usually write reviews but when you spend this much money I can’t help but stop someone else from being this disappointed. The only amazing thing about this room is the view of the mountain while sitting in the hot tub. Absolutely breathtaking. It all ends there. From the kitchen pans being unusable because they are disgusting, stained mugs, broken toaster, utensils falling apart while using them to sink drains clogged, it’s all around terrible. I’m not topically a picky person but too much grossness is enough to write a review. Badly stained couches (we fit for the two single, cleaner couches to sit), huge cracks in lamp shade, holes in blankets that smell like they haven’t been washed in months. The list goes on…Also don’t walk barefoot in this suite you’ll have black feet by the end of the day. Lots needs to be updated in this suite to reflect the price. Pictures online don’t reflect what you will encounter. Also the ice maker in the garage was out of order (fridges in suite don’t make ice), and bike storage was not available for whatever reason. For the beauty of this resort setting the rental suites should reflect the same. The prices should also reflect the quality of the room.

This place was fantastic. Stayed 2 nights since it was the low season. Nothing else was open on the mountain until late May, so be prepared to bring your own food, or drive 13 kms down the mountain. This place was so spacious. Lots of storage, washer and dryer, dishwasher and heated floors in the bathroom. No air-conditioning but did have a fan. Beautiful views from our balcony. Will come again next year.

We had a relaxing few nights stay just before the Summer Season Opening of Kicking Horse. We just missed the re-opening of the Gondola and an opportunity to visit Boo the famous Grizzly by a couple of days but the Complex was otherwise fully functioning and quiet. Bliss. Rode that Gondola in Winter a few years ago and it was so enjoyable we hope to experience it in Summer one day.
Our spacious 1 Bedroom apartment was comfortable with large bedroom, bathroom, Lounge/Dining and an excellent kitchen. The scenic drive down to Golden should be about 20 minutes but the Black Bears were thick on the ground and were impossible to ignore. Respectfully. They were a highlight of our Kicking Horse visit. We’ve never seen so many Cubs. Often Three cubs with a surprisingly calm Mom. Apparently the Bears are no deterrent to Walkers and Cyclists either. An adrenalin hit.
Golden has several big Grocery Stores so we bought groceries and happily ate in after busy days of sightseeing. Also a wealth of Restaurants and Fast Food Chains too. Twilight made sitting out on the wide rear deck the perfect lazy end to amazing but long days.
The safe basement carpark with Elevator access to all levels was excellent too.

Stayed in 2 bed suite with a tub on balcony. Lots of safe and very comfortable. Excellent kitchen. A little tired with a few bits of damage. Also not great check in down hill at glacier. Overall good value for a ply of room but it is a ski resort so you are 15l out of Golden. There is a small store and a bar restaurant and a great gondola ride and bike trails

I was excited to stay in a ski-in ski-out room but other than that it sucked. Hot tub wasn’t working which we were really looking forward to after riding all day. Walls are paper thin. There was construction going on in part of the hotel most of the day so not relaxing at all. Love kicking horse but we will not stay here again.
