The Stanford Inn is in a picturesque, distinctive location on the far southwest end of Fernie, between the highway and the Elk River. It is the closest place to the ski hill that is not actually on the ski hill. I used to snicker as I drove past because it is the only place I have ever seen built on... More

This Hotel was hassle free and is in a great location backing onto the river. It came with a decent breakfast and friendly staff. It was quite and the view onto the river was really great. It is a little out from the main area of town which is great for hiking around the area and along the river.

I really wanted to love this hotel! Upon first view, it's a beautiful hotel with a gorgeous lobby, and super friendly service. The staff at the front desk was so friendly and helpful. I think this hotel could be a 5 star rating with a few cosmetic fixes. For example the wallpaper in our bathroom was pealing and the counter... More

Hello, thank you for writing! Without hearing from our guests, we cannot make changes. So thank you for the feedback, we will get the bathroom looked after immediately. I know we are getting the towel rack beside the sink for better use, as well as some shelving there as well. As for the butter chicken in the restaurant, I know... More

We stayed at one of the condos for a weekend wedding. The service was friendly and did wonders, considering how understaffed the hotel was. The condo, which is privately owned, was rather worn and not very clean. The Indian food served at the restaurant was exceptional.

Hi there and thank you so much for the review! Oh weddings, they are wonderful! Good point on the condo's, I think some updating on those will happen in due time, even though they are not owned by us. The restaurant is yes, exceptional! I always eat far to much there as it is just so tasty. Hope to see... More

We stayed overnight recently during a road trip heading south and after staying in other hotels previously decided to try the Stanford. Were so glad we did as had a most enjoyable experience!

I've had Indian food around the world and this is the litmus test, this is the standard I compare all others to! If you like it hot, order atomic. It will make you sweat. And if it is traditional you are looking for it is top notch.

Thanks for your review Karen! You have no fear! I am unsure I could go that hot, but glad to hear you can and enjoyed it!!

My family of 4 just stayed in this fabulous resort, and would return again in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, we had been in a serious car accident & needed to stay for an extended period.

Our stay at the hotel as a family of four with two small kids (6 months old and 3 yrs old) was really good overall. We had such a wonderful experience with the front-desk staff.
