Very average stay. Accommodation is tired and needs refreshing. Room was clean but still found trash under fridge door. Ate at the buglers attached to lodge and was disappointed. Food was not cooked fresh. The rewarmed pork was still cold inside the veg was cooked from frozen and the potato dry as if it was a week old. Service was...

We spent a night here before skiing at Hidden Valley. The room was comfortable and my young boys enjoyed the pool and hot tub inspite of the pool temperature being very cold. The breakfast included with the ski package was extensive and delicious.

Stayed here for a couple of nights to meet a family member for some skiing at the local hill. As it was a small hill and the dead of winter I expected a little. But we found a great and cozy room, in a beautiful town with a surprising amount to see and do. At the resort, Swithin and his...

I had my reservations about booking three nights at the Lodge. I read some pretty terrible reviews about the rooms and service. However, I had a great experience. I didn't book online or by phone, I was given the guest services email and interacted primarily with Wanda. She was very helpful and gave some good advice. We arrived early for...

A little glitch when we arrived regarding our rooms but was resolved. Room was very nice but lighting over the kitchen sink was nonexistent so very dark there while making coffee. Room was very nice otherwise. Would definitely return. Also a nice touch on Christmas morning we received a nice container of truffles from the Lodge.

Stayed at the Lodge from Nov 14-17. Very clean room and quiet. We were here hunting and were up at 5:30 am and to bed early and could move about and never heard noise from the other rooms or out front from the vehicles. Front desk was always friendly and helpful. Excellent place to stay. Would definitely stay here again...
