“"Just the job"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We stayed here for 7 nights on our first ski trip to the resort. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean - we didn't have it cleaned every day by our choice but our cleaner, Ramona left notes to remind us! There was a bath which is excellent for post- skiing and plenty of hot water. We did not make use of the spa but heard good reports.
The ski room guys store your skis and give good weather, lift, ski type etc. tips and were typically very cheerful - as were the rest of the staff.
The transport was great. No more than 10 min wait to go or return and driver, Mark was really good value - always in his hat and sunglasses and he was most helpful when I lost my husband at the end of the day by driving around and making 'phone calls!
We would certainly return to Summit Lodge.

We stayed at Summit Lodge for 10 days from 28th January - this is our 4th time at Summit and we enjoyed it as much as ever. We requested and were given our 'usual' room at the back of the hotel overlooking the hottub which was very quiet and peaceful. All the staff were helpful and friendly - and we enjoyed the new coffee/hot chocolate machine in the front lobby, especially when we were offered some Baileys to go with it! We were also delighted to see Mark the shuttle driver back again after a year off - he was great! Always helpful and smiling, and we never had to wait around for him to collect us from the slopes. We are already looking forward to booking again for 2014!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are much quieter!

Recently stayed at the Summit for 3 nights in Feb 2013. Overall the Summit was a great hotel, for the price we paid. The access to the mountain was great with Mark our awesome driver who would drop us off right at the gondola. Zandy cleaned our room very well and would leave a nice note everyday. The restaurant was delicious in the hotel, we had a fabulous breakfast.
Minus's of the hotel: The hot tub was small and the rooms were not the most luxerious but fine for a weekend ski trip and the bed was very hard!

My Mom and I had a great time! I loved the hotel and the people there. Especially Mark, he was my super awesome driver. He always has a smile on his face and always helping out without having to ask. The hotel people where very nice as well.

Hotel is located very convenient for people coming in via PCL Buslink from Vancouver Airport, as the bus also stops before the hotel.

The "Sauna" is average (even to American definitions of a sauna, Europeans do expect way more, but Americans "don't get it" (the concept of a sauna), so it's not the fault of the Summit!), and funnily there is NO skiboot room available (you have to take your skiboots to your room!).

Very positive: the free shuttle bus to/from the lift station. It was even more pleasant with our driver Mark, who does an outstanding job in bringing us back and forth!

There were little differences the guy (Zandy) who cleaned my room made that I really appreciated. Every day he arranged my things in a thoughtful manner and made the place tip-top.

Thanks for a great time, Summit Lodge and Spa!

Great holiday, great hotel with amazing snowboarding, been back in Wales a week now and I think I'm ready to emigrate ;) everyone at the hotel was great from the cleaners to the manager Tony who even got us a few free pitchers at a nearby bar. The boys in the tuning shop in the hotel gave us a discount on waxing the boards and were more than happy to give us any tips on where to go on the mountain and also offered us to test out the powder boards they had there. The shuttle bus driver mark was a real nice guy always helpful, if the bus was full he would say he'd be back in 8 mins he'd be there in 7. As far as whistler is concerned it's by far the best resort all around by far. Some people say that tignes France is the best snowboarding in europe ( which I've also visited ) whistler knocks spots off it. It actually makes tignes look a bit of a s..t hole. Can't wait to get back there
