“nice room in cottage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Location is great, near the beautiful lake and near the small village with a great choice of restaurants. We had a nice room on the ground floor with a little terrace. When we went out for dinner, there was deer in front of our cottage. In the morning, we have seen a fox and some wapiti. Wildlife surrounds your cottage. Very clean rooms, though a little bit smaller than in the other hotels during our trip. We did not have dinner in the hotel, but in an italian restaurant in the village. For breakfast, they served a buffet for our group, limited but very tasty. For those who enjoy scenery, a real must!

We stayed for two or three nights in the summer of 2012. The place was expensive, but less so than most of the other hotels in Waterton. We loved our little upstairs room -- the wooden ceiling beams, the comfy bed, and the view over the town and mountains made it totally charming. It rained during most of our stay, but our lovely little room helped make up for it. The Internet connection and gym weren't very good, and the place struck me more as a hotel than a resort, but I quite loved it and would return in a heartbeat.

The location is perfect within 2 short blocks of the spectacular lake and scenery, walking distance to restaurants. Deer in the yard. We had two comfortable queen beds. Quiet. We did not eat at the restaurant in the lobby. These are small separate cottages with a few rooms downstairs and upstairs in each. We picked downstairs which is a good idea because no elevators. Had free wireless internet in room. Waterton is spectacular and shouldn't be missed, and this lodge is a good option for several nights.

Room Tip: downstairs, so you don't have to carry luggage upstairs, plus some downstairs rooms have chairs...

Stayed there for a night and was very satisfied with the accommodation we had .Generally very clean and comfortable apart from the sink top in the bathroom. This could use a bit more effort to remove the stains left behind from the cleaning effort. Had an evening meal in the Vimy grill, attached to this establishment. Doesn't know the difference between Rainbow Trout and Salmon it would appear. Had a discussion with the floor manager when the meal was presented , having ordered Rainbow Trout off the menu. Was presented with what appears to be salmon, for the size of the fillet and orange colour of the meat. As one who eats Salmon often, I recognise it right away as Salmon and this was a point of discussion with said manager, who insisted tha it was Trout. The nearest this would be as a trout is STEEL HEAD. Zero marks for that. Would not recommend this eating establishment as the service was below par as well.

Room Tip: Would take a floor level corner suite due to the easy access in case of an emergency etc.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review.

I apologize that you were dissatisfied with your experience at Vimy's Lounge and Grill. Our Rainbow Trout is locally farmed, so this may have caused your confusion with the colour and size of the trout, but again we apologize that you were unhappy with this.

We sincerely hope you considering staying with us at the Waterton Lakes Lodge Resort the next time you visit Waterton.

We stayed for one night. Room was clean with a comfortable bed. The decor is a bit outdated and the room small with no fridge. Location was good. Was expecting more for the price we paid but enjoyed our stay. We ate the restaurant which had good service.

I really wanted to love our stay here!! We booked it very last minute and the front staff took over an hour tracking down keys for our unit. Finally we got the keys and yet we were still locked out as the dead bolts were in place! Really?!!!

The room is fine, not great. That being said the location really can't be beat.

The pool is a lot of fun and my daughters loved it after a day of hiking.

We will probably try it again as the location makes up for our front desk experience.

I am sorry to hear you were not impressed with your front desk experience. We strive to achieve only the highest standards of service, and apologize for our slip up.

There may have been several factors contributing to the wait time on your room, such as not having a clean room available, and we are sorry for this.

We do hope you consider returning to stay with us the next time you visit Waterton, and give us another chance to impress you.

My wife and I shared a great time at Waterton Lakes and stayed at the Waterton Lakes Lodge Resort. The room was a double queen and was in a great location close to everything. The Vimy Restaurant serves excellent meals at good prices. Mauve and Sara were wonderful servers, knowledgable about the area.

I highly recommend the Lodge for your stay at Waterton Lakes.
