My wife and I stayed at the Blue Mountain for a few days in October last year.
The lodge is old and very quaint. However the facilities do need modernising. If the rooms were bigger this would be an excellent base for a stay.
We booked the "Prospector's cabin " as it looked to be one of the larger rooms and was on the ground floor with it's own private entrance. We found the room to be a tight fit despite being bigger than most shown on the website. However it was warm, the bed was comfortable, the shower was hot and had good pressure, ( but is in a very small space).
Pascal, the owner, is very friendly and more than willing to give loads of advice on days out walking or driving.
The breakfasts consist of cereals, croissants and boiled eggs, fruit juices, teas and coffee. More than enough for the start to the day.
The car park is small however parking is free. There is loads of space on the streets if you don't get there in time !
As most people have said in previous reviews. The best thing about the lodge is it's location. Two minutes from the main avenue where there are loads of shops, bars and restaurants. We also took many strolls from the lodge over the bridge and along the river, South of the town.
