Would we stay here again? Yes! We had a lovely room on the 3rd floor with a lake view and balcony. It was idyllic to sit here admiring the view in the morning with a mug of coffee (decaff unfortunately as the hotel had run out of regular pods). The room was spacious, tastefully decorated with a wonderful comfortable bed... More

Stayed for two nights, lovely room overlooking the lake. Very spacious, comfortable beds, iPod docking station was playing relaxing music, when we opened the door. The drive to Tyax was memorable, stunning scenery but a long drive 80km over rough roads. Food in restaurant is superb, but a limited menu.

We traveled to Tyax by road which was an interesting experience. After 5 hours of driving we came to the road to Tyax. An unsealed rocky 80 km with a steep drop to the valley below. Not for the faint hearted. The resort is welcoming and the facilities excellent. The lake is pretty with some small lake trout in it.... More

I just returned from a 3 night stay at Tyax and i have never felt more welcome than this time. The new manager Patrick is very accommodating and has made this place feel like home. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by a gentleman at the front desk that was very informative and made several suggestions on how... More

I have been coming to Tyax for 5 years with my wife and 2 children. The General Manager felt it was acceptable for him to discipline my children, he was rude and intimidating to my wife. We will not return.

Awesome combination of adventure and relaxation. Very comfortable, spacious and beautiful hotel rooms. A suggestion for improvement would be to add a mini fridge in the room. I think there were three floors of hotel rooms, but no elevator, so bear this in mind if carrying bags up stairs is an issue. Delicious food in the restaurant and an amazing... More

This resort really lives up to it's name as a Wilderness Resort, it is in the middle of nowhere. There is only one road to the resort, if you can call it a road, you travel for a couple of miles on tarmac then it reverts to gravel then back to tarmac and back to gravel. I picked up a... More

We spent three nights at Tyax - service was mediocre but the front desk staff - the man behind the front desk was horrible. If his intention is to discourage you from returning then he does a really good job. We travelled with another couple that found his service deplorable. Three nights, dinners and a few massages were clearly not... More

This is the first time I have been back in many years and it always makes me feel at home, as I was born in Bralorne. This is a great place to kick back and relax and just enjoy the exceptional beauty of this area. If you love the wilderness this is definitely the place for you. Wildlife here is... More

We have stayed at Tyax several times through the years in summer and winter. Since it has been taken over by the new owner / managemt it has had a significant enhancement. There were areas seriously in need of repair and this has been thoroughly redone. Rotten logs removed, dinning room enhanced, hot tub redone and landscaping renovated. The rooms... More
