My wife and I stayed in a differnt hotel almost every night during our 10 day trip to Glacier and Banff. We thought the Belton was the best of the bunch. We made our reservations pretty late, so we were not able to stay at any of the lodges within the park. Of the gateway facilities, this one is a... More

This is a great place to stay, Historic Hotel which has been nicely restored. Staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Grounds beautifully kept. Only down side is that the hotel is located very close to train tracks so not good if you are a light sleeper.

The Belton is a wonderful chalet that is both historic and quaint. The staff welcomes you as soon as you pass through the front door! The room was small, and not air-conditioned, but the nights cool off and the supplied fan does the trick. I would highly recommend this chalet for the restaurant itself; we had a fabulous meal that... More

We were camping and were rained out. We called late at night, desperate to find somewhere that would take us. We were fortunate to end up at the Belton Chalet. Not only is the place comfortable and in a great location, it is reasonably priced and the staff is super helpful. They made us feel welcome, despite the late hour,... More

We stayed in room 39 in the building behind the Belton Chalet. It was on the second floor so not directly looking at the row of parked cars on the lower floor but our view opposite was of the forest. The building was still a traditional chalet and frankly it was VERY quite, bearing in mind the train line runs... More

This property could tell some tales. It has been in existence a long time and has had some facelifts and renovations. The rooms upstairs are small, BUT they are clean and adequate. This old hotel is near the train depot, but we never heard the train, even with the windows open (no AC). It was comfortable but (repeat) small.

There is no doubt if you want a good meal and some special out of the ordinary dishes, Belton Chalet is the place to go. Service was with a smile and food was tasty with good presentation. It is difficult to find good places to eat when you are a stranger in out West. We were sent there for lunch... More

We stayed at the Belton Chalet June 30, 2014. It is a wonderfully restored hotel with lots of character. We ate at their restaurant, had decent food and the waiter was excellent, food was a bit pricy, but you do not have many other options in this tiny little town. We returned to our room and spent some quality time... More

We loved staying here since we really got a sense of the history of the area. I loved walking their gardens, and I loved the period accurate decor and finishes. Small rooms it must be said, and of course noisy trains, I was wondering what those ear plugs were for … I used them the second night. The food at... More

The restored old chalet was a great place to stay. The rooms are very small but we didn't spend much time in the room so it didn't bother us much. It was very interesting to read about the history of the chalet and how it's still haunted to this day. The staff was very friendly and informative about different hikes... More
