Stayed at this lodge for 3 nights in August. We stayed in one of the log cabin apartments which was very nice but would have benefited from a fridge. Dinner was good. Breakfast was a little expensive for what it was. Staff and owners are very friendly and helpful. The location at the entrance to the park is lovely. There... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour. Had a very nice room which was relatively new. Dinner both nights was of a good quality. Breakfast was expensive for what it was. I think it was something like $12. One of our party wanted a fruit tea and was charged an extra $2.50 on top. Bit silly...

The Helmcken Lodge has been one of the highlights of our 2 week trip around Alberta and BC. It is such a beautiful, scenic location- who cares that it's a few miles out of town? We had peace and quiet and the best nights sleep we've had. We did a fantastic 2hr ride around amazing, wild woods. The couple who... More

We stayed three nights in the lodge on our round trip and enjoyed our stay very much. We had a room in the newly built extension. The rooms were small, but very cozy and well designed to have a comfortable stay. The staff was very friendly, efficient and helpful. The restaurant is located in the main building and food and...

Firstly the good points ... Great staff (including some Brits) that we're always friendly and helpful. The advice wasn't just limited to the accommodation and the site but they gave great advice about the local area too. Food in the restaurant was good too. The accommodation was nicely set up but .... The bad points. For the money I'd expect... More

Altough nice and friendly the hotel and staff made a bit of an alternative impression to us. Rooms located in separated buildings but very spacious and well equiped. Very nice dinner and breakfast room with outside area equipped with (much needed) mosquito nets. There are also nectar bottles to attract hummingbirds ! One of the best hotel-breakfasts we had in...

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
