The Belton Chalet is part of the historic Great Northern Railway's development of the East Coast to West Coast railway system in the early 1900's. It is historic and in that regard it is a gem. We wanted that experience and chose to stay here as part of our exploration of Glacier National Park. The bottom line: The rooms are... More

We didn't stay here but ate at the restaurant twice based on recommendations from locals. This is probably the best restaurant in town. It's a real "foodie" place. It felt like fine dining in a big city, whereas most places are full of hiking boots and students on summer break. Be prepared for a wait, but you can enjoy a... More

We enjoyed staying at this historic chalet. The staff was very friendly. The restaurant was superb!!! Best part of the stay! Our only complaint is that the room was very warm. We knew there would be no A/C but didn't expect that with all of the windows open and a fan blowing that it would remain uncomfortably warm for the... More

The manager was totally uncommitted to client service. We had booked 8-2 and 8-4. We had called several times and said keep calling often a cancellation. We found... More

After white knuckling the GTTSR we were the impressed with the Belton Chalet. Again chosen because of Trip Advisor recommendations our original plan had two nights, but because of the EB mess we had to cut it to one night. The rental company wanted $75 to pick up the car we got in East Glacier and originally we figured we... More

First the Restaurant: Wonderful! We were a large group of 21 and Melinda worked with me before we went to Glacier. She gave us the private Heritage Room. I chose six items from the menu and she printed a special menu for us. The food was wonderful. Everyone was happy with their meal. My granddaughter and I stayed at the... More

I want to thank Brad and the owners of the Belton Chalet for helping us in a very sticky situation. Our hotel plans went awry at another location and we showed up at the Belton Chalet at 11:00pm with no where to stay. Everything in town was booked - literally. Another hotel was giving people blankets so they could sleep... More

When I die & go to travel heaven I will stay at the Belton Chalet. We hunt out historic properties and if you don't know what this means, or think you might want the local chain motor inn because it's got a color TV or ... please! don't book this and complain. This restoration is the most outstanding we have... More

No A/C or TV or elevator and the rooms were very small. This is an old railroad hotel. I was here with a group. Although it got down in the 40's at night the room was still "warm". There was a fan we ran the entire time and we kept the windows open the entire time. I didn't see any... More

Enjoyed the night here. Great place to stay and the location has a great view. Sat on our deck and enjoyed the evening. The trains are loud but the have ear plugs in the room if you need them. This was a nice place to stay after the Going The Sun Road.

We are a 1910 National Historic Landmark hotel built by James J. and Louis Hill of the Great Northern Railway. After being closed for fifty years, the property underwent a three-year restoration completed in 1999 and is now a National Historic Landmark. The Belton Chalet was the first chalet built for Glacier Park and the park’s first winter headquarters. Belton Chalet, family owned, once again welcomes guest from across the world. Thank you for being our guest and a part of our history. ... more   less
