We stayed here for one night as part of a tour group and found the accommodation to be clean and comfortable. The views and surrounding area are very peaceful and quiet and the staff were very friendly. The only cons were the over priced food and drinks on offer but as there is nothing else around for miles it suited... More

My wife and I stayed at his guest ranch for three nights in May 2014. We were on our way from Jasper to Victoria. First impressions were not to bad but it went down hill from there. While checking-in we booked for dinner, which was a BBQ, that is all that was on the menu and it was the same... More

Wells Gray Guest Ranch is located in stunning scenery but we were bitterly disappointed with what was offered here. It was totally obvious that the owner was trying to save a dollar wherever possible, even if it meant making his guests feel awkward and uncomfortable. I think they take full advantage of most guests being one time visitors as this... More

We only had "BBQ dinner" in the Black Horse saloon - following a recommendation of our host at the Blue Grouse Country Inn. They are connected - what they do not reaveal, but it is obvious as soon as you hear the strong Austrian accent... At the Black Horse Saloon we got bad, overpriced food - starting with a ridiculous... More

We had no idea we were staying here our daughter who lives in Canada booked it...we were delighted it was fabulous! A real ranch atmosphere, wooden buildings, open fields and beautiful horses roaming around. We have nothing like this in Australia!!! Yes the dinners were a bit boring but it was different sitting in the wagons to eat..the breakfasts were... More

I'll admit I was a bit nervous about our stay here having read some rather negative reviews. However, we were all delighted with our stay. Yes it's basic - but surely that's the charm of the place! We found the staff friendly and helpful. The location is stunning. The absolute highlight of our stay was the hiking / canoeing taster... More

Beautiful ranch type lodge, with tons of space, real horses. I am not sure if i should rate very good or average... The setting is top, the service zero. The restaurant is only open early evening with the same menu everyday, bbq. The breakfast is very basic. Luckily the area is nice, beautiful waterfalls starting from 20 mn away till... More

My wife and I drove from Jasper back to Vancouver and decided to spend one night at Wells Gray Guest Ranch. We thought it might be a great potential place for a family reunion. Boy, were we wrong!! The location is beautiful, the cabins are quaint, and the saloon cool...but there was absolutely no personality! The cabins were furnished with... More

We stopped here for one night on a driving holiday heading east from Victoria to Calgary. This time we decided to do the Kamloops to Jasper route but wanted to stay somewhere in between. There aren't many places to stop along that section of the highway so when we saw this place it looked like a great place to try.... More

We had lunch at the Black Horse Saloon on a recent visit to Wells Gray Park. We were not staying at the ranch, so this review only reflects the food at the ranch. The setting was cute, with it's kitch western styling and decor, but fun. The menu was limited but there was some tempting choices. I ordered a grilled... More
