We had a 2 bedroom on the 3rd floor in the second building closer to the tube run/beginner ski hill. We had a nice view of the hill but it was not as peaceful. Even though the building had signs for quiet time between 10pm and 8 am there was always disturbances from other guests inside but more so from... More

We love this resort located at the base of the Kicking Horse gondola. Perfect for skiing in the winter or downhill biking in the summer. A trip in the summer wouldn't be complete without a visit to see Boo Grizzly at the Grizzly Bear Refuge. The Ranger Assist Program is amazing. Rangers Ross & Nicole are so knowledgeable and Boo...

Beautiful ski lodge with great amenities and comfortable rooms . Ski in / ski out was so convenient and the view from our room was breathtaking. The apartment rooms were like being at home, kitchen was well stocked and made healthy meals while being away

Lodge is comfortable and I have no complaints except for the music. Do not stay in the hillside suites as they put out large speakers facing the lodge and blare dance music all day from 9 am till 6 pm. Music and bass thumping into the room all day. They say they can turn it down but they're put out... More

Stayed here for about a week and had a very comfortable stay. Room was well appointed with the full kitchenette and a lovely main room complete with gas fireplace. The views from my room on the fourth floor were to die for! Saw some amazing sunrises and sunsets! It was also really neat just watching be clouds and fog roll... More

It's great to have a suite with a kitchen. I stayed here ten years ago so it was interesting to return. It didn't seem like much had changed. The place is feeling a bit dated. We were in a dog friendly room next to the elevator shaft which you could hear in the bedroom, the noise kept us awake. The... More

We stayed here during the May long weekend and did some amazing white water rafting on the Kicking Horse River. We had the 1 bedroom condo with kitchen. Our view wasn't the best (parking lot) but our room was great! LOVED THE HUGE KITCHEN AND ISLAND! SO MUCH ROOM TO COOK! We went during the off season so all cafes... More

Hello Kasia S, Thank you kindly for your review. I am glad to hear that you had a pleasant stay with us. I agree the fully stocked kitchens are quite nice, especially in the quieter season, to make your own meals with. Rafting is one of my favourite summer activities in the area and I am delighted to hear that... More

The Lodge looks ok on the outside but the rooms needed some TLC. The springs could be felt through the mattress on the bed. Overall though the place is very quiet because of its location. Be prepared with your own food as it is about 15-20mins outside of town. We arrived at 8pm and had to drive back into Golden... More

Great location and we were lucky enough to be given an upgrade to a glacier view room. The rooms are nothing special but just adequate. The restaurant feels very much like a Chinese restaurant though other dishes were available. The service was good. The reception was a little unfriendly - very matter of fact - not at all welcoming. But... More

This can be an excellent place in non winter seasons when discounts are available. Strangely the building looks exceptional outside, but inside the rooms are 2 star class: thin walls, broken blinds, old TV's. We did really like the views, service, and heater in the bathroom though.
