Unfortunately, we did not consult Tripadvisor before we stayed at this hotel. We found the negative reviews about the hotel to be very true! The manager quoted us a price for our two nights. She changed the rate when we checked out. We paid the bill and then told our bank/credit card issuer about our problem. The bank credited our... More

My husband and I discovered Num-ti-jah in 1980. In 1983 we honeymooned here. It has never been a luxury destination, even when Jimmy Simpson, Jr. and his sweet sister were running it. What it is, is a miracle, hewn out of wilderness and maintained with love and superhuman effort. When the Simpson family let it go, the current owners (20... More

We stayed here one night in the fall of 2014. If you go into this with no expectations whatsoever you might not be as disappointed as we were. We had wanted to stay here for a long time and based on the reviews we read, we thought it was going to be good at the very least. However we were... More

I gave the hotel a 5 for its type. This is definitely not a luxurious hotel, very rustic, but wonderful. Takes you back in time. I was on a bike tour with Backroads, and we stayed at this very rustic lodge out in the middle of nowhere along the Glacier highway - it was lovely. The lodge is very, very... More

We were showing a friend from New Zealand our part of Canada & the Rockies. Stayed 1 night. (The Lodge ended up being HER Favorite stay of her 3 week holiday) I had been many years ago. Again not disappointed. We appreciate Heritage Hotels, Peace & Quiet. They have done a great job of caring the Lodge for so many... More

We stayed one night at the Num-Ti-Jah Lodge and it was wonderful in every way. The views are to die for - stunning. The location, at the shore of the Bow Lake and below the Crowfoot Glacier is absolutely what you go to the Rockies for. The Lodge is of a heavy timber construction and is great fun. It nestles...

second all the comments by Leonie001 Great place to use as a base for exploring the back country Why do the staff members seem to enjoy lounging in the guest areas of the "hotel"? There were 4 light bulbs out in our room,

I don't normally write reviews, but I haven't experienced something so overpriced with such horrible service as I did here. We had driven past this lodge a couple of times and decided to give it a try for our anniversary given the Bow Lake and hiking options surrounding the lodge. If I knew I was going to be charged through... More

Your enjoyment of a stay at Num-ti-jah will depend on whether you mind paying (a lot) for location only, rather than good service or great food. Num-ti-jah is a lovely building and was once a great lodge. It now feels slightly neglected and is run more or less as a youth hostel and tourist attraction. You do get your own... More

We stopped in for supper on our way through. Stunning location, average food and very overpriced for the quality. Lodge is very interesting. Stop for the view and history, save your money for better options.
