Cathedral Lodge occupies an exception location in Yoho National Park on the banks of the Kicking Horse River and in the shadow of mountains. It is quiet and off the beaten track. It is near Tunnel Mountain but the trains did not bother us. There are walks you can start from the lodge and guides available if you want to use them. Whether you have a guide or DIY you can buy a 'walkers packed lunch' which is well worth doing. All the rooms are luxurious cabins - we stayed in a deluxe cabin which was more then sufficient. It was number 8 - the nearest to the woods and one row back from the river. It was quiet and cosy. I was initially a little disappointed in the room size but it did not cause a problem as we had 2 cosy sitting chairs and an large king size bed in the main room. It was immaculately clean and all furnishing and finishes were high quality. The bathroom was a reasonable size and had a good shower. We did have a problem with the shower but maintenance fixed it without delay or hassle. The central heating and wifi were outstanding. The main dinning room is warm and welcoming. There is a log fire at one end and when the weather is better tables are set outside. It is used for breakfast, dinner and afternoon tea. We enjoyed eating in the restaurant - the service and food matched the rest of our experience. Customer Service is excellent - all of the staff were welcoming and polite. They had a 'laid back' excellence and their service could not be faulted. This experience was a 'cut above' that we had on most of our stays in Canada - it was one of the best and worth the costs. All the staff are outstanding but thank you to Anne, Alex and Darren for taking care of us. if you stay you should take a trip into the historic town of Field and do look out the pottery shop.…
This was a very comfortable, cosy lodge with good access to the walks in the area and the national park. The rooms were log cabins, very comfortable, warm with good amenities. The central lodge had a great log fire, and nice ambience to it. The staff were very helpful and polite. The choice of restaurants in Field were very limited and thus we chose to eat at the lodge. This was quite expensive although the quality was good. It was quite a noise area being next to the trans Canadian highway and the railway with trains running 24 hours. The walks up to the waterfalls were superb and emerald lake was worth a visit. Loved the area and the walking.
Quaint riverside lodge in Yono Park. All luxury log cabins with fire places. Centralized dining with outdoor tables, when the weather allows. Wonderful and friendly staff. We were with a group of 20 cyclists. The lodge was a welcome retreat after long rides and hikes. Our group particularly enjoyed the riverside deck for happy hour, along with the fire pit. Scenery in the area is amazing. Many nearby options for hiking and cycling enthusiasts without the crowds of other locations in the Rockies. A true jewel in the wilderness.
Be sure to pamper yourself a little and stay here. It was just lovely! Very close to an amazing waterfall. Chairs and bonfire down by the river were perfect!! Thought we might hear some road noise as a major road was up above and behind us, but no problem at all. Highly recommend!
Very friendly, great service, excellent local guiding from the lodge, very good accommodation and meals (good wine list) in a lovely dining room. The location is also very good - under the mountains with short walks by the river, just down from the interesting railway spiral tunnels at Kicking Horse Pass and the small "outback" town of Field.
