I have only ever viewed reviews on tripadvisor but since Gary M's 'beg to differ' appears to have erroneously mentioned myself and my wife in his review I feel compelled to reply and provide a review regarding our trip.
I assume Gary M is meaning myself and my wife as we preferred to keep our own company including dining as a couple. That the lodge were accommodating to us in terms of providing this option and flexible in timing of meals is something we are grateful for.
We found the food though limited in choice to be of a high standard if though sometimes perhaps slightly meagre in in portion size. The service was was always friendly though sometimes a little slow.
The accommodation we found to be of a good standard but given the cost no better than an average 5 star hotel, I would agree with 768 traveller in my surprise that there was no ipod dock or DVD player in the room, clearly there would be no Television in the lodge due to its location.
Given the cost of the package we feel that Kermode Bear viewing should be included in the rate charged not as an additional trip.
We cannot given the danger ourselves, KPL staff and BC Ferry Crew were place in feel that the evacuation gave us more of a story to tell, that Gary M takes this view shows a stunning naivety to the dangers we all faced in transferring from a very small boat up a rope ladder into a Ferry in seas with very low water temperatures.
In all my view of KPL as a resort is its good, but very overpriced, I do though have great criticism of the behavior of KPL management during and post evacuation,this though I believe is better addressed through the correct channels and not on a open forum.
