Although the address is Clearwater the hotel is 35kms from Clearwater and we were beginning to wonder if we were in the correct road. Our log cabin or lodge was very comfortable, quiet with great views. Dinner and breakfast were good, we enjoyed our one night stay.

The lodge has recently been extended with many brand new cabins, the location is rural so you do need to drive places but they have horses here and not too far from Clearwater lake where you can hire kayaks/canoes. The lodge is very comfortable and very clean with thick new carpets the food here is good quality and we had... More

The first surprise was the hotel was approx 40kms from the main drag and to get to the falls was another circa 40kms. This is partly our travel agents fault for not telling us. Our room was superb, two queen sized beds (we had requested a double) which were comfortable but let down by foam pillows which for me are... More

Difficult to review this place. If your travel agent has included a stay here without you being aware what sort of place it is then you might be unhappy, especially if you're used to staying in up market hotels. This is a fairly basic place, but the room was clean, tidy and served us well. The chances are if it's... More

Great rooms and near to the falls. Excellent breakfast and evening meals very good. This is a very good place to stay to explore the park. The family that own this are very welcoming and work hard to explain what ever you need to know . The information book in the room is outstanding

We stayed here for 2 nights in September as part of a 19 day fly-drive around BC and Alberta. At first we wondered where on earth our travel company had sent us and what we would find to do. We were in one of the 4 roomed log chalets which were spacious and very nicely furnished with plenty of space... More

If you are after a flash five star lodge with all the mod cons then don't come here. If you a after somewhere close to the national park, quiet and cosy then this is great. We didn't have much time for this part of our trip so chose this place based on it proximity to the national park, right at... More

We were passing though Clearwater on our way to Whistler from Jasper. We hadn't booked anywhere so we went to the visitor centre to seek a recommendation. They suggested the lodge as they had just dropped prices for the fall season. We had a choice of a standard room or a log cabin for an additional $10 so we booked... More

Dear Richard Thank you for your review. We are thrilled that you found us and had a great time. The chef Cyndy is actually Canadian and as you say she does a great job . We take your comments about the internet and plan to expand the system next year so there is better coverage for all the rooms. More

We arrived at 1 pm to find a closed until 3 pm sign, really? Since when can't you check in until 3 pm? Dinner was good, service was good. Breakfast was stale bread and old fruit, not even a boiled egg, nothing hot. The rooms are a good size but the beds are the hardest I have ever slept on!... More

Every hotel has a published check out and check in time. We are sorry that you were inconvenienced by this. Our rooms have to be cleaned after check out and before they can be used again at check in. 30 of our beds are brand new and the others are being replaced over a 3 year rolling renovation program. We... More
