The hotel, staff, food all great. The noise level in our room (519) not so much - walls seemed very thin, could hear people next door and in the corridor talking, heard doors banging etc. This went on until gone midnight, needless to say didn't get a good nights sleep. Won't stay here again.

Room was modest in size but well appointed and comfortable. Noise from corridor was... More

We had booked in 2 messages for the wife and i, and they forgot to book her in. They didn't try to resolve it or help us in anyway, all... More

The event was hosted by Christine Davidson (ski instructor/ yoga instructor) and the staff at Sunshine Lodge. The goal of the retreat was to get in touch with your inner Mountain Mystic, I felt relaxed, renewed an inspired after this experience. The... More

Our family of 4 stayed three nights at the Sunshine Mountain Lodge in early January. The rooms are tight but cozy. We loved the cozy fireplace in our room. Friends of ours stayed in a loft room which has a second level with its own bed, tv and bathroom. Next time we would likely choose the loft room instead. The... More
