On our travels we have stayed at several historic hotels, The Strater Hotel and General Palmer in Durango Colorado, Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire and Keltic Lodge in Ingonish Canada. Comparing the Prince of Wales to the other historic hotels it falls so short. It has so much potential but I feel like it needs some tender loving care.... More

I stayed here for two nights in September. I read the other reviews and I knew what to expect. The room I had on the 3 floor was small - but we did have a beautiful view that overlooked the bluff. With a King size bed the room was very small but comfortable. My main problem with the room was... More

Stayed one night at Prince of Wales. Nice older hotel with great views. Short drive or nice stroll to local shops and restaurants. On the pricey side but worth it for the experience for at least one night.

Even though we had read the reviews about the Prince of Wales Hotel, we wanted to try it. Check in was horrible as there was a line and we could not find a place to park. Upon asking, we were told that it was first come, first served - even though we were staying at the hotel. Our room overlooked... More

We stayed here for our 20th anniversary and our stay was amazing. The view is breathtaking, the food in the restaurants is top notch, high tea was very enjoyable, the town had even more great restaurants....I just cannot say enough good things about our stay here. GO!

We had the opportunity to spend a night at this hotel on our recent visit to Waterton Park. Our room was located on the sixth floor and the view was spectacular even with the low clouds above the lake. We awoke to a morning filled with grey clouds and snow. The rooms were clean and the furnishings very rustic and... More

We spent 2 nights here. Our 5th floor room was small with a tiny bathroom but the view was amazing. The wind was very strong but I loved having the window open to feel that fresh mountain air. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. the food was okay but nothing... More

Yes. It's true. The accomodation is lacking and I was very disappointed just like everyone else. But surely you would think the managers would listen and do something? But no. We all continue to go there and that is why things never change. This gorgeous place needs a complete make over but there is no need when the numbers still... More

While we loved the views, we did not love that they blocked you from enjoying it at the prettiest time of day for their tea time. We found the staff to be a bit uptight and the bed in the room was very uncomfortable and was definitely sagging in the middle.

Hi Laurie D, Thanks for leaving us some feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your thought the views to be restricted. There are many places to take in the view (the lounge, the restaurant, the floor-to-ceiling windows in the lobby where tea takes place from 1-5pm, or outside on the enormous bluff the hotel sits on) so I'm surprised that...
