We were disappointed by Cathedral Mountain Lodge. However, having looked around some of the other options with a future stay in mind, I still think it is one of the best options in the area. The lodges are really quite close together and there is no sense of privacy. The lodges themselves are very clean and nicely decorated. The bath was really quite small but what astounded us most was the lack of storage space. We were there for 6 nights and were on a long trip so we had a lot of luggage. There was nowhere to unpack or store suitcases. It was really quite inconvenient for a long stay. Also I didn't find the place particularly relaxing - as you wouldn't really want to sit out on your balcony given the proximity of the other cabins and there were only a couple of chairs by the river. The seats outside the main lodge always seemed too dirty to sit on. Most days we made it to breakfast very early so didn't have a problem but on the two occasions we arrived later (but by no means late), they had run out of various things. There is also no wifi and the communal computer is a dial-up connection. In my opinion, I think this place is best suited to a brief stay of maybe one or two nights.
I would go back but only because the hiking was so outstanding that it more than made up for any negatives of the accommodation.
