“very affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We have stayed at Tantalus 8 of the last 10 years. This year was even better than the previous years as the beds are much more comfortable and the kitchen was not missing anything we needed. We are a group of gals but all of the mom's in the group commented that the bunk room would be awesome for their families.

Stayed here with 3 teenagers. Great sized rooms with full kitchen (being able to cook helped to reduce the cost of the trip and the amount of junk food consumed). Hotel and rooms are very clean. We needed an oven tray and exhaust fan over stove didn't work, but once reported these items were immediately fixed. Heated pool and spas are great. Only suggestions would be to not charge for use of the computer in the lobby (we stayed in 10 hotels during our 6 week trip and this is the only hotel that changed for use of a PC), and that the reception staff (who were nice and helpful) be a little more informed about the village and snow reports etc. Would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the mountains as they're magnificant.

this was our 7th visit and we never want to stay anywhere else

We first visited in 1981 and have come back many times

The suites are very spacious and ideal for 4 people or more if it is a family

There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms which works well

The outdoor hot tub is fun as is the outdoor all year pool

We booked two suites for 9 senior aged gals in our walking group and the accommodation was just perfect for us. The price was unbeatable in Whistler (we booked directly with the hotel). Even wood burning fireplaces. The kitchens were well equipped, the beds very comfortable with fabulous quality sheets. We booked one superior suite (as our group meeting space) and one regular suite which was supposed to be smaller. In actual fact, the regular suite was actually the best for our group as it was more open. The ceilings were higher in the superior suite and supposedly the kitchen is larger and there is a second large balcony which may be an advantage in the middle of summer. The mountain view from the superior suite was fabulous. All in all, well done. My only tiny suggestion is that they supply some better quality coffee. In the meantime take your own. The short walk into the village is not more than 5 or 6 minutes.

Just got back from the Tantalus Lodge. When we first arrived we were greeted by dozens of semi-naked drunken college age kids, walking to our room we passed lots of loud parties. This certainly didn't look like the kind of place I would take a family to.

We stepped over a pile of nachos in the corridor floor. They were still there several hours later (albeit ground in from being trod on).

Charging for wi-fi is a bit mean these days. Come on, Starbucks, Super 8, Travel Lodge and even the top of the mountain has free wi-fi. Parking charges added salt to the wounds.

Finally the floors and walls are strangely warped and we were scared to go out on the creaky old balcony. Although we noticed mot of our neighbours were on their balconies ignoring the no smoking signs.

I guess if you want reasonable Whistler rates and to party with friends it could be fun. A relaxing weekend with the family.........forget about it.

Friendly staff and proximity to the ski hill were the positives.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am very sorry the actions of other guests hindered on us providing you with a enjoyable stay. I notice you mentioned a charge for WiFi, which I am surprised as Wifi is complimentary in all rooms.

I will be happy to discuss this in person. Below you will find my contact information.

We travelled with 2 boys aged 8 and 11. This accommodation was perfect. We were given a superior 2 bedroom suite. Having travelled from England with the time difference, and all day in the fresh air boarding and skiing the boys were exhausted every evening. It was therefore lovely to be able to cook and eat in a relaxed atmosphere at Tantalus. There is a full kitchen with oven, grill, 4 ring hob, microwave and dishwasher, huge fridge freezer, proper coffee machine, kettle and toaster. There were loads of pans and utensils, chopping board, cheese grater, bottle opener, knives, collindar, measuring jugs, etc everything you'd have indoors. I even baked brownies (used coffee filters as cake cases and made our own pancakes. There were washing up liquid, dishwasher powder, coffee filters there (not sure if supplied by Tantalus or previous guest) Tantalus do supply, tea bags, giant filter coffee bags, sugar, sweetener, coffee mate and salt and pepper. Bret (I think) on reception when we arrive at midnight after a really frought journey was very helpful. He gave us advice on places for breakfast and where to buy groceries. For what was a week's shop we went to the Market Place for the supermarket. We got a cab back for $7, (they line up outside). It cost us approx $150 for a regular week's shopping. Boys watched TV and fell asleep between 6.30-7.30 every night so fantastic to have separate bedrooms and living space! 2 bathrooms were also a god send. The boys loved the outdoor pool, and would have used the tennis court but the snow had only just cleared as we left.

It is about 4 minute walk to the Blackcomb Whistler, kids lessons drop off, or there is a shuttle bus (free).

Free wifi was great, we could email family photo postcards and check out information onine.

Staff were all friendly and helpful and reception was available 24/7.

We booked direct and from booking to leaving the Tantalus could not have been more friendly or helpful.

If (or when) we are back in Whistler we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: We were in room 501 which was on 4th floor but had stairs directly inside room door up to the full...
