We were so looking forward to our two days here on our honeymoon trip to Western Canada all the way from Ireland. I'll start with the positive points. The spa was fantastic. The staff could not do enough for us. We had a couple's massage as a honeymoon treat. The standards in the spa are very high and the massage I got was first rate. The mineral spa is nice, but you have to pay to get into it if you are not getting a treatment. I wouldn't recommend paying into it separately. It's really just a pool. Not worth $39. We had dinner in the restaurant on one of the nights and the service and food were both excellent. The cabin we were assigned for two nights was tiny; it was a two-bed, but you literally had to squeeze around the beds and we are not large people. The furniture had a very worn look and feel. I think upgrades are needed. I know that we could have gone to the front desk and asked for a better cabin but for such a short stay, it can be more detrimental to your overall experience to have to ask. To be honest, we told them when booking and upon check-in that it was our honeymoon and that we had travelled from Ireland, so you don't really expect to have to ask for a better room. I commented on this on checking-out, and management did indeed contact me for further information and issued a partial refund for the inconvenience. It was a nice gesture, however, I would have preferred to have had a great experience there instead.
