We were a little nervous about this hotel, having read some very mixed reviews. We needn't have worried.
The hotel was easy to find (in the same building as the Colombia Icefield Discovery Centre). We parks in the coach park, so a short walk over a footbridge with our luggage. We found reception without any problems, where Ali was very friendly and helpful.
The location of the hotel is fabulous. We had a dual aspect room with 2 large comfortable beds (Room 314). Great value for money - we paid less than £70.
From reading previous reviews, we knew that the food was expensive. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good. We took our own croissants etc for breakfast.
We would definitely recommend the hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Glacier View Inn is a model of environmentally sensitive design, built to incorporate the pristine environment that it surrounds. There are 32 guest rooms - most have at least two queen beds and a loft. All are well appointed, with satellite TV, and direct dial phones. Many rooms offer spectacular views of surrounding mountains and glaciers but you should make sure to request a room with a view early as these are the first to go. Most rooms are well suited for families needing more space than a conventional hotel room, as well as traditional sized rooms for couples or individuals. Open April through October. ... more less
