We arrived in Clearwater with no accommodation booked. Went into the very helpful visitor centre who recommended the ranch. We were a little bit unsure but decided to have a look before committing. Slightly above our budget but with breakfast and dinner included it was really good value. We had a beautifully equipped cabin which was spotless. The owner was... More

The surroundings of this Ranch are just breathtaking! We stayed in one of the small cabins with two bunkbeds. although it was really simple and there was no electricity or running water in the cabin, it was a great place to stay (probably because there was nog electricity or running water). We had a small porch and there was a... More

Actually stayed here in 2003 and 2007. We had a short 3 night stay here some years ago on our first visit to Canada and found this place just great. Yes it is a little different to the usual, but that makes it even better. Granted there is not an extensive menu (bison stew was good though!) and the breakfast... More

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

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
