This is the third time I have stayed here but first time in the actually hotel. The other two times I have stayed in the cabins. When we called to book a cabin this year sadly they were all booked, the front desk told us to try a loft suite. When we opened the door to the suite our jaws... More

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Lodge and couldn't begin to say how we were treated. We took a loft room as there were 4 of us. it was beautifully kept with lots of space, 2 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. Great housekeeping standards and a very helpful front desk. The pool is well kept... More

The hotel was nice. Unfortunately, there was no restaurant open during our stay and we were not told about this when we booked. We ended up eating at a cafe that had a very limited menu. It was ok, but when the website advertises having a restaurant, I would expect it to be open, even if for limited hours. Wifi... More

This resort was excellent. The reviews were mixed so we had some concerns however the one bedroom condo we were in was excellent! Well-appointed and equipped with everything you'd need, the unit was large, clean and comfortable. Lots of parking, a nice, albeit a bit small, saltwater pool area, bar-b-q on the deck...everything was fantastic except for the bed -... More

Very clean well appointed modern rooms in a quite beautiful park with lots to do within walking distance. However very limited food choices within an hours drive, so for those staying more then a day I would recommend picking up essentials from Medicine Hat.

The room itself was the only redeeming quality of this "hotel". This is NOT a lodge and resort so do not be conned. I am surprised that the provincial park services allows this place to get away with the con job as the land is leased from the government. Onward with the review. The room was very good. We had...

Beautiful campsites. They are well maintained and surrounded by lodgepole pines. It is up the road (hill), above the campgrounds by the lake. Are remarkable place. As you come into the valley you see the lake and a definite demarcation of grasslands to forest. A number of walking paths/hikes. Loads of wild berries, so consequently wild life. We were walking...

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon, we stayed in the jacuzzi suite which was fairly new, clean, king bed fireplace and a small kitchenette. The bathroom had a double shower head which was a great feature to me. We arrived on a Thursday and left on Tuesday. The only food at the hotel is called Buglers, we... More

This was our 4th visit to the lodge but unfortunately the place has gone downhill. I noticed right away that the grounds desperately needed to be maintained (weeded and removal of the beer cans on the picnic table). The outdoor fireplace is wrecked and can't be used and is wrapped up with a bunch of tape. The rooms need a... More
