I think this is one of my favorite places, EVER! Yes, it is pricey, but I figured this would be a one time visit. We stayed two nights, and I will never forget the beauty of this place. Right on Moraine Lake itself. The first day, there was a reflection on the lake that was about the most beautiful scenery... More

Stayed for 2 nights in Room 32 which is located on the top floor in the main building. The room is fitted out in a rustic style with lots of wood. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom well furnished with a bath and an overhead shower and the room had a balcony giving fantastic views of the lake. The... More

Having read some of the reviews on this hotel, we stayed for 4 nights. Good quality clean rooms, with views to die for. The food quality was excellent , and the staff all friendly and eager to please. The restaurant would benefit from a good maître d, this would help the smooth running of sittings.

We stayed three nights for our 25th wedding anniversary. The lodge had everything we needed, gourmet dinners, full buffet breakfast was included each morning, guided nature hikes and canoes for the lake. The surroundings were so beautiful! The staff was helpful and our room had everything we needed for comfort and relaxation. We stayed in a deluxe king cabin facing... More

The hotel is a series of cabins on the edge of Moraine Lake and feels completely in the wilderness. Each cabin has a small balcony with chairs and a table and just incredible views. The bed was huge and comfortable with really good linen, a great bathroom and a sitting area with an open fireplace (with a plentiful supply of... More

This is an expensive hotel but worth every penny. The stay includes a delicious buffet style breakfast, afternoon tea and free guided hikes and canoe hire, you can also borrow bear spray if heading out on your own. Although Moraine Lake is exceptionally busy during the day as a guest in the lodge we had the advantage of being able... More

Fantastic little lodge in a beautiful location. Expensive but the service, rooms and food lived up to it, particularly dinner which was fantastic. Moraine Lake is disgustingly busy during the daytime so it was nice to stay there in the early morning and evening when it was much more pleasant. Free canoes are excellent, we were first on the lake... More

We started our holiday here and were very sad to leave. We stayed 4 four nights which we felt was about right. A much better option than Lake Louise which we had considered. We used it as a base to visit Banf and Yoho National Park but could well have spent all out time here. Yes it does get busy... More

The crowds all day long spoil it . We picked the lodge for the views and lake which are spectacular. Rooms and service above average . We had dinner there two nights and the food was very well prepared and presented. No TV and no phones are a great idea until you look outside and see and hear a steady... More
