Stay - 16/8/14 - 18/8/14 Positives - people, the staff could not be more helpful - location, ideal for the falls - food, a great selection at the dining room - we only stayed for 2 nights but the location cried out for a longer stay as you are right in the heart of the national park Concerns - none

Small but nice room, looks like it would be very cozy with the fireplace in winter. The Sunwapta falls is a short walk or drive away, and the location is very convenient for the Columbia Icefields. For us the best part was the breakfast - the hot oatmeal with peaches was the best breakfast dish I've had in some time.

The hotel is just off the main road though in the cabins there is no noise. They are dotted around in semi detached pairs among the trees, each with a pleasant verandah. The rooms are large and well equipped - there was no aircon but there was an electric fan. The room was slightly dowdy, outdated and a little worse... More

Chose the summer dreamin pkg & the best part was the dinner and breakfast - excellent. The room was not great - noisey facing the highway, very warm and we were told that was all that was available to us; however, I overheard a desk clerk later tell someone that they keep 2 rooms available for unexpected guests. Also, our... More

When we arrived, we were greeted with very friendly staff. They showed us to our cabin, and it was just what I had imagined it would be like. We had a romantic dinner. Which you need to make a reservation when you arrive. That evening one of the staff came to the cabin with a bundle of fire wood and... More

Location 4 Sunwapta's location is both good and bad. It's the perfect distance from Banff that we were able to drive through Bow Valley Pkwy to Louise Lake/Ice fields Pkwy and have time to go on the Ice Explorer without rushing too much. We were even able recuperate a little before dinner there and see a few more spots around... More

After the crowds of Banff and Lake Louise, we were thrilled with the pleasant, laid back, and friendly oasis of Sunwapta Falls Rocky Mountain Lodge. The staff, who came from all over the world, were truly wonderful. Gracious, helpful. and they kindly sent my iPad to me when I left it in the room. That shows real honesty, integrity, and... More

Hadn't planned to stay here but ended up staying three nights when all the campgrounds along the Icefields Parkway were full. It's only about a half hour drive to the Columbia Icefield and a half hour to Jasper town, easy walk to Sunwapta Falls, great scenery, with quiet and woodsy rooms. We chose to stay in the rooms rather than... More

My wife and I stayed one night here and enjoyed our stay. We were driving the Ice Field parkway, and drove from Lake Louise to Jasper, then turned around and drove back and spent the night here. The drive was magnificent. We were really pleased by the accommodations at at Sunwapta Lodge. Nothing too fancy, but clean and comfortable. We... More

We loved this place. Very close to Sunwapta falls and only a short drive to the Canadian Ice Fields. The room was spotless and the food exquisite. Quiet and homely. The staff friendly and helpful. Quality for price. The grounds are magnificent with chipmunks and an array of beautiful birds scampering about. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The gift shop is... More
