“A Charming Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

The Prince of Wales Hotel is decorated in dark wood. The six story lobby has floor to ceiling windows that look out on a lake flowing along the base of a mountain range. It is absolutely breathtaking. The building itself is built of dark wood and decorated like an alpine lodge. It sits atop a hilltop in the Waterton Lake National Park (the Canadian half of Glacier National Park) and commands a stunning vista. The food was very good, but the service was slow. The waiters were wearing kilts; the ladies tartan ties.

“Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

celebrated our anniversary here. Good choices, good value, tasty food. Views can't be beat! Unfortunately a lot of flies that evening. Also they would not fill our request for a window view even for a special anniversary.

“Prices were the same as in town.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Because the view is so amazing from the dining room, and the prices were comparable to fine dining in town, we chose to eat in the dining room. My husband had pork chop that was not good; he described it as mealy. I had a NY steak and it was good. The service was young and inexperienced but eager to please. Tables were close together so we had a difficult separating our conversation from the table next to us. We were glad for the experience but would probably not be back. Almost the same view can be gotten from the bar so we would choose that venue if we visited again.

“Excellent Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

My wife and I had the pleasure of dinning here during our stay in the hotel. The food was very good and well proportioned and enhanced by an incredible view. Excellent service by servers who are happy to be there. I have had fancier meals but the dishes were well put together with quality ingredients. My only suggestion is to make a reservation if possible.
