Paid $180 a night for a two room suite: one room with two double beds, the second room had a kitchen, sofa and a second sofa with pull out bed. This included two adult lift tickets per day and two food vouchers ($15 off a $75 meal). Oh and coupons for other rentals we never used.
The property is breathtaking, and with a little renovations and elbow grease this place could be a real gem. Of course now we get back to what this property is today:
The rooms are dated and not clean (the pool and spa are gross too). I was also a little shocked that they have envelopes, in more than one place in the room, with "cleaning lady" written on them, implying you "need" to leave money. I felt like leaving them a tip alright: a note pointing out the areas needing particular "cleaning" attention!
The layout of our room was terrible, with no coat closet in the room. They did have an armoire but its so large you couldn't fully open the doors (they hit the end of the bed). Finally we removed the doors from the hinges so we could hang up our clothes. The kitchennet area with sofa bed was nice and having a second 3 piece bath with stand up shower was great with kids. The mold in the corners of the shower was kind of gross however, oh and the jetted tub in the main bath screamed of hidden germs and bacteria.
The beds are rock hard and small, my husband and I opted to let the kids have each a double bed and we slept on the slightly softer sofas.
Now to the good parts: the service was good and the Sunday brunch buffet was probably one of the best buffets I've ever been to and I hate buffets. We went because our friends who were also staying at the hotel wanted to go.
The buffet included lobster, roast beef, waffles, pasta, eggs Benedict, sausage, baccon and a pile of other things, but the most impressive was the chocolate fountain with huge bowls of fruit and the spread of desserts. The raspberry tart I had was simply phenomenal. The price tag seemed steep at first but the quality of the food warranted the price, I think. Especially when you consider the cost of other restaurants in the area. (a family of 4 at the pizza place up the street cost us almost $100, and it was not $100 quality pizza IMO oh and that doesn't include beer because they don't sell any).
While the over all price seemed good at first, because it included the lift tickets, we have concluded this was a bad deal. We will definitely pay a little more next year and go to Tremblant.
